6 most sadistic Brock Lesnar beatdowns
One of the reasons why the WWE Universe seems eager to watch Brock Lesnar take on Braun Strowman at No Mercy stems from the fact that for the first time ever, an opponent has consistently bested the Beast at his own game.
Usually, it's Brock Lesnar that is handing out the beatdowns, that is victimising and conquering everyone that is put before him. This time, however, the tables have been well and truly turned.
And everyone is curious to see what comes of it.
We at Sportskeeda thought this would be good opportunity to examine just why Braun Strowman's dominance over the Beast plays out as such a novelty, by bringing to you a few instances from the past when the shoe was on the other foot.
Brock Lesnar has made a career out of breaking people in the ring and before he transformed into a 'lazy' suplex-machine in his second WWE coming, he used to quite enjoy dishing out vicious punishment to his victims.
On that note, here are 6 of Brock Lesnar's most sadistic beatdowns.
Trust us, it was a hard list to keep down to just six.
#1 Spanky (Brian Kendrick)
Vince McMahon proceeded to book Spanky (Brian Kendrick), who'd unwittingly stained his jacket with chocolate sauce, in a match against Brock Lesnar as punishment.
And Brock Lesnar, who'd chummed up with Vince McMahon at the time, was only too eager to oblige.
What made this segment particularly hard to watch, apart from the considerable size and strength difference between the men, was the fact that Lesnar went out of the way to maim the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
Not only did he repeatedly powerbomb him, he also took a chair to his cranium and, to top it all off, laid him out with a painful-looking F5 to the ring post.
It was a blatant display of bully mentality from the Beast, egged on by an equally sadistic Vince McMahon.
Little did we know then that it would only get worse in the following weeks...
