#5: Brock Lesnar vs The Rock - Summerslam 2002
The hype around this match was incredible. With the Rock, one of the best in the game when it comes to electrifying with a promo, adding Brock into the mix was just taking things to another level. Who would win? It was a question of Brocks power versus the Rock's speed and anything could have happened.
Eventually, the case of strength against speed came to a head and it was looking like Brock would win the match but that wasn’t before we saw commentator Paul Heyman being put through a table. With Lesnar successfully defending the ‘People's elbow and the Spine-buster, The Rock was out of manoeuvres and the end was inevitable.
The crowd chanted Lesnar’s name as he was crowned the youngest WWE champ in history as Brock Lesnar’s Legacy was cemented in wrestling history, a new era had begun in professional wrestling, the era of the beast.
