Who can beat Brock Lesnar?

Post by Hero on Tue 23 Aug 2016, 4:06 pm

At Summerslam we saw the latest guy to get what amounted to a squash match, a top level star in Randy Orton get a beating that did him no favours whatsoever but continued to make Lesnar look an unstoppable machine.
Now similar to how Lesnar got the rub from conquering the Taker streak there has to come a time and place where someone goes over Lesnar, the problem being in the 'New Era' in which most guys coming through aren't traditional WWE builds then it looks less and less realistic for one these stars to cause the upset.
So of the current crop of WWE or NXT stars who do you think can slay the beast?

You just know it'll be Baron Corbyn

It's a really difficult call - and I can't see it from anyone at the moment

Samoa Joe?

I've got a horrible feeling it will be Goldberg or Conor Macgregor

Reigns will get him.

There was a small part of me that hoped taking out Shane was a long build to Bryan being allowed one more match.

I was thinking Bryan one more match, more so that he said in a recent interview that was the dream match he wanted, its just an injury waiting to happen though.

Connor McGregor would be pretty epic, id hope for it to be Owens.

Theres only one WWE employee who could match his striking. The king of Strong Style.

Book it.

Cannot real see any similarity between the two.

I wouldn't mind seeing Zayn, Balor or Joe against him though. Ultimate underdog, the Demon or an absolute brawl. Actually, theres loads of people I'd love to see face him, but I suppose when it comes to beating him I wouldn't put it past them to book Cena/Lesnar again.

For me it'd be Joe or Nakamura that I'd be keen to see go against Lesnar, Joe probably of the two and to have them just go at each other.

Theres a list as long as my arm of people they should just let have a go with him. The problem is they need to be having a go with the Lesnar that Punk got, not this watered down one.

Joe is really the most suitable guy in terms of someone they could build to be a believable threat. Plus he plays into the whole combat reality style they are going for with Brock matches. It would be a bit down the line though as he needs to debut and everything. Given how quickly they've elevated Balor and Styles to the top of the card though surely its doable

It should have been Reigns. They're getting deathly close to the streak being broke for nothing and people are starting to cool on the whole act. I think Brock needed another dominating win over a top star to keep him built up. Needs a good program to go into before Steph and Mick need to do something drastic to stop him.

Its been announced that Steph has fined him $500 so this strikes me as a reason for Shane to get peed that its not punishment enough and that leads into a program between Lesnar and Shane. Not sure thats what they need right now.

That will never happen. 

Firstly, Brock wouldn't let a smaller markets fighter going over him, as it would bring a legitimacy that Brock wouldn't be able to swallow. I doubt Dana would allow either of them to do it as it turns there mma status into a joke. 

I think it's likely to be reigns unfortunately or a loser Retires match with a big name.

Does anybody think they are setting it up for Taker to return to reclaim the streak at Mania?

Taker met Shane for a pint recently and his family were at Smakdown in Texas

He's dyed his hair aswell, which is the Kevin Nash giveaway of a return. Shane could theoretically pick Undertaker to fight for him as a proxy - it would make sense given their recent history - but Brock has only ever lost once to Undertaker so what would he have to fear from him?

The streak also aint coming back. As bad as they've botched ending the streak I think giving Undertaker a win last year at Summerslam was a mistake, never mind the other WrestleMania matches hes had. I think either the streak should have ended with Undertakers career or not at all.

The much mooted Rock vs Brock match makes sense to me. Brock is even taking down Smackdown...the Rock's show, people!
