WWE history: Brock Lesnar gets creative to defeat The Big Show in a Stretcher match
Brock Lesnar turned 42 today. The Beast has had one of the greatest WWE careers of all time, and is a sure-shot first-ballot Hall of Famer, although one doubts whether he will ever accept an accolade such as this, to avoid talking in front of a large group of people.
Over the course of his two WWE runs, Lesnar has been a part of a number of legendary moments. The breaking of the streak, the ring-breaking segment on SmackDown with The Big Show, Lesnar's outing with arch-rival Goldberg are just a few in a string of iconic moments Lesnar has been involved in.
On his birthday, let's take a look at a mostly forgotten moment from Judgment Day 2003, when Brock Lesnar turned into a Cruiserweight for a split second, flying high in an attempt to launch himself on The Big Show, and hatched an incredible plan to defeat him.
At Judgment Day, Brock Lesnar and The Big Show squared off in a Stretcher match in the main event of the night. As the match was about to come to an end, Lesnar brought in a freaking forklift to the arena. Big Show suddenly got distracted by a sneaky Rey Mysterio, who jumped on him from behind.
After disposing off Mysterio, the giant turned, only to get hit with a 290 pounder Brock Lesnar, who launched himself from atop the forklift in an incredibly impressive feat, and a cool visual. Lesnar eventually defeated The Big Show after carrying him beyond the marking on the entranceway. Lesnar knew that only a forklift would be able to carry the gigantic form of The Big Show.
Lesnar lost the title soon after to Kurt Angle and turned heel on him days after the loss. Angle defeated Lesnar at SummerSlam to retain the WWE Title.
