5 best Brock Lesnar moments on RAW
Brock Lesnar has long held a reputation for being both incredibly powerful and uncharacteristically agile for a man of his size. These two physical attributes have led him to be booked as one of the most powerful and dangerous forces in all of WWE, which in turn led to several great moments on RAW for “The Beast Incarnate.”
For many years, Lesnar has appeared on a part-time basis only, fully aware of how big of a star he has become. Because of this, Lesnar’s appearances on RAW have been touted as special events. Naturally, both WWE and Lesnar himself are aware of this, which has led to Lesnar participating in several spectacular moments over the years.
Below are Brock Lesnar’s five greatest moments on Monday Night RAW.
#5 Brock F-5s Steve Austin
By 2004, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin had all but retired from in-ring competition but was still an important on-screen presence. At the same time, Lesnar was still a hot commodity in WWE and was feuding with RAW star Goldberg. Shenanigans ensued, and Steve Austin ended up on the receiving end of an F-5 courtesy of Brock Lesnar.
What makes this so important is that Austin barely took any bumps for anyone at all at that point because of how much damage his body had taken up to that point. Furthermore, Austin was still the biggest name in WWE at that point, so anyone that could get the upper hand over Austin was treated as a major threat and a truly credible star.
Although we never got to see the much-anticipated Lesnar-Austin one-on-one match, and even though the first Lesnar-Goldberg match was a complete failure, the sight of the rookie Lesnar standing over ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin remains one of the greatest moments in RAW history.
