Brock Lesnar is a professional wrestler and ex-mixed martial artist and has played football tournaments before entering the wrestling field. He joined the World Wrestling Federation in 2002 and earned fame by becoming the youngest wrestler to win the WWE Championship at the age of 25.
Lesnar returned to WWE in 2012, his reign as the WWE Universal title for about 500+ days is the seventh-longest world title reign in the history of WWE and now holds the record for the most reigns as Universal Champion with three. He changed the complete scenario of WWE after his comeback. He wrestled the top superstars like John Cena, and Triple H and entertained the fans to the fullest. His rivalries had the best storylines ever and his domination in the matches is much loved by his fans.
At WrestleMania 30, he broke The Undertaker’s winning streak of 21-0 and shocked the world with his performance. Here are some of Brock Lesnar’s best moves used by him in the WWE ring:
#5 Multiple Powerbombs
The force of a conventional powerbomb is presumably pretty considerable, but by exerting his strength there, Brock increased its destructiveness. Brock used to apply his full strength in delivering the moves due to which even a normal suplex looked very devastating. It requires a huge amount of muscle power to lift giant-like wrestlers with such ease. He never botched his moves during his matches, which shows his perfection in those moves. Brock’s opponent totally gets demolished after taking those devastating powerbombs.
#4 Belly to Belly suplex
One of the best moves of Lesnar is his over-the-head belly-to-belly suplex. Brock is such a powerful athlete that he has delivered this move to the heaviest of the wrestlers of WWE, including The Big Show, Omos, Bobby Lashley, and many more. He delivers belly-to-belly with such ease that it looks much more devastating and impactful. Lesnar’s thunderous speed in delivering the suplexes makes it look like it has been launched from a cannon. Several times, Lesnar has sent opponents out of the ring using this maneuver.
#3 German Suplex
It’s the move that popularized the “Suplex City” catchphrase. The German suplex has been made popular by Lesnar since his debut. Lesnar delivers a couple of German suplexes to his opponent (say, 7–10) during his matches. As a result of taking a huge number of suplexes, his opponents get drained, and then Lesnar uses his finisher to pick up the victory. Lesnar has been using this move for so many years now that it has become a fan favorite.
#2 The Kimura lock
Both BJJ and MMA combat have effectively utilized the Kimura lock, sometimes referred to as the double wristlock or chicken wing. Lesnar has used this lock in most of his matches to pass out his opponent through submission. This lock is so dangerous that it can even break an opponent’s arms if locked in for a long time. Lesnar uses this lock against big opponents in most cases.
#1 The F-5
F-5 is the most famous and dangerous move of Brock Lesnar. He uses it as his finisher. A fireman’s carry over the shoulders is used to hoist an opponent, after which the opponent’s legs are thrown out in front of them to spin them out and fall backwards, forcing the opponent to crash on their face and upper body. F-5 is one of those finishers from which few wrestlers survive. Only the top superstars like Rollins, Roman Reigns, Cena, and some others have kicked out after this deadly move.
