This list takes a look at the five biggest defeats in Brock Lesnar’s career.
#5 The Bigshow (Survivor Series ‘02)
Brock Lesnar had made a splash in his debut year and was already WWE Champion, beating The Rock and the Undertaker in the process. His next opponent would be the 7 ft tall, 500 pound Bigshow who was riding a wave of momentum then. Lesnar’s manager Paul Heyman did not want Lesnar battling the Bigshow, but the Animal did it anyway.
Towards the end of the match, Lesnar delivered an F-5 to Big Show, but when he went for the pin, Heyman pulled the referee out of the ring. This allowed Big Show to capitalize and proceeded to chokeslam Lesnar on a steel chair. Show went on to pin Lesnar and win the title.
This loss was Lesnar's first pinfall loss in WWE and led Lesnar to turn for the first time in his career into a fan favorite.
