I think people sometimes forget that professional wrestling is supposed to be simulated combat and not a stunt show or gymnastics routine. Wrestling is supposed to be a fight, and the more real it looks, the better. Who is more believable than Brock Lesnar? Who is more legit and has the credentials that Brock Lesnar has? Also another thing that Brock excels at that is lost in the current generation, is he doesn't expose himself. He is a true keeper of kayfabe. Hes not on twitter and hes not hanging out with the boys. He comes in when hes getting paid, he does his job, and gets huge reactions every time. Brock Lesnar is a true professional wrestler.

A true professional wrestler shows up to work not chilling in his farm with his wife majority of the time
Lesnar has paid his dues. Brock worked fulltime from 2002-2004 and then left WWE and made a bigger name for himself. He makes more money than any wrestler in the business today and married one of the hottest female talents in the wrestling business. Lesnar is the TOP of the mountain when is comes to succcess in the wrestling business. MOST paid for LEAST amount of dates.

Brock doesn't expose himself because he doesn't like the fans. He hates posing for pictures with fans and doesn't like to sign autographs. I can think of several wrestlers who make wrestling more believable than Brock, such as Kota Ibushi, Satoshi Kojima, Kenny Omega, Hiroshi Tanahashi, AJ Styles, Minoru Suzuki, and Zach Sabre Jr. Another issue is Brock only shows up just to get paid and little else. He doesn't have mic skills and his moveset is one-dimensional. Suplex city, suplex city, and more suplex city. Frankly, I'd like to take a one-way ticket right out of Suplex City and never come back.

Thats the thing though, him not liking people and not signing autographs adds so much to his character cuz its real. Hes comes off as a prick, but hes a prick that could fuck you up. People wont be going up to him for a picture cuz they know Lesnar could smash them at will. Thats real. That is why Lesnar is another level and gets paid probably more than all those guys u listen combined.

Bullshit. Why is that a job requirement? Can wrestle one match and that match can showcase the best proffesional wrestler.
I just find a bit odd the champion on what is supposed to be the flagship show only wrestles a handful of times in a year

And the only guy who can pull it off is Lesnar. It creates heat. Lesnar has legit heat with the fans and the boys and he dont give a fuck. Lesnar is a true heel, which is another thing that's wrong with wrestling. Too many heel expose themselves as really cool nice guys behind the scenes.

No Corbin is a true heel because there's still people who mark out for Lesnar. Make excuses for him and wrestlers who say he deserves it. Corbin has no fans at least since he became constable

Very very subjective topic so it’s hard to be so definitive. But, I will say that he’s, whether you like him or not, top dog as far as money, main events, being pushed, and getting reactions overall.

I don’t mind that he’s part time, honestly. The only part that I hate is the fact that WWE feels the need to always put the belt on the guy. He can be in big ass feuds and win without always needing the belt. I get him having it now and then, and hell I even get his huge reign he had for over a year. But this constant taking of the biggest title isn’t needed at all. He has enough validity without the belt; insomuch, it could choke a donkey. Brock is big no matter what, therefore let others be champ now and then.

I respect Brock, dont get me wrong, but to say he is hands down the best professional wrestler is a bit much, wrestling is simulated combat sure, but thats not all wrestleing is, its so much more then just that, its the story telling in the ring, its the promos, and yes it is the combat, but making it look real isnt all there is to it.

Brocks matches are practicly the same, he does suplexs, F5s, a single submission and thats it, you can only do so much against that, and you can only do it so many times before people start to say "Sure its Lesnar in a match, but ive seen Lesnars matches before, i know what to expect by now, so why should i watch?"

But even then, the problem isnt Lesnar or his matches, thats not it, him being champion is the problem. Because you can only keep the companys main title away for so long before it starts to lose its meaning, people stopped careing about the title long ago because it was never around..And yes it DID work for a time, but WWE does what they do too often, they over do it, Brock was gone for so long that people stopped careing.

Like i said i respect brock, a man who puts his family and kids before his job is a good man, but to say hes better then all these other gifted people, in WWE, in AEW, in New japan even, just look at the G1 and all the incredible matches and talent there. Yes hes a draw, yes hes realistic, but he isnt the best active wrestler. Not in my eyes atleast, i ofcourse understand where you are coming from and i respect your opinion, but i cant agree.

Side note about the keyfabe thing, he did a podcast with stonecold completely out of character, and hes not a social media guy so ofcourse hes not posting on twitter and such, which makes sense, he has done plenty of interviews though.

Lol another Brock Lesnar hater. Dudes only the biggest draw and the most legit tough guy in the business. These are facts so amuse me with any arguement u have becuz there is none.
Sorry bro I just can’t take you seriously. Brock Lesnar has extremely limited moveset and zero mic skills. It literally doesn’t matter at all if he’s a ‘legit tough guy’ outside of the bussines, guy can’t wrestle and his charisma is very low.

Brock doesnt need to have alot of moves and doesnt need to talk (which he is capable of both, especially if u look at his early career). Brocks character isnt about a fancy moveset or a promo. Its about him being the BEAST, and he knows how to tell that story in the ring. His ring psychology is vastly underrated. His body language, facial expressions, and selling is at the highest of levels and he doesnt get enough credit for it. His character doesnt need to speak because he has Paul Heyman, one of the greatest managers and minds in the business ever to take care of that for him. And when Lesnar does speak, whatever he says gets a huge pop because its rare when he gets on the mic so thats a guarenteed reaction. No one has more legit heat in professional wrestling than Lesnar, from both the fans and boys in the locker room. And the best part about that is he genuinely doesnt give a fuck about the fans or locker room because he makes the most money for working the least amount of dates. Lesnar is the realest heel in the game. No one even comes close.

While I agree that Brock is very good in the ring and one of the best, is he the best active wrestler? I think that’s a stretch. In terms of literally just wrestling, he might be in the top 5 right now, but I personally don’t think he’s the best.

another Brock Lesnar hater.
Well lets be honest...he's easy to hate.

Dudes only the biggest draw and the most legit tough guy in the business.
So? Just because he's a draw & legit tough guy doesn't give him a free pass.

These are facts so amuse me with any arguement u have becuz there is none.
I would argue you are a brainwashed diehard WWE fan who accepts
reputation & past glories instead of the here & now.

Why should anyone give a fuck about Le$nar?

He doesn't even watch the show he "stars" in...

If he's not going to be invested in the show you like...then why have
any investment in Le$nar?

Seriously...I think every "Le$nar Fanboy" is a moron who thinks they
can appear "tough & legit" because they worship this lazy, has-been.

Also...Le$nar is a drug cheat...

:fact:

Lets hear your "arguement" for that.

You are missing the point. He is the best wrestler because he is the best heel. And he is a real life heel. Lesnar takes the game to a whole new level. Although, Daniel Bryan is quickly catching up and will most likely surpass Lesnar. Daniel Bryan is turning everything he touches into gold.
