If this is your first-time visiting TheRasslinCafe.com, I would like to say thank you, and I hope you will share the site with all your rasslin friends. Now that I got the pleasantries out of the way, let’s get to why I am writing this blog.

Wrestling has been a love of mine since the early 90’s, 1990 to be exact. My all-time favorite wrestler is the Undertaker. With the Undertaker’s career, seemingly over at Wrestlemania 33, I am left with so many memories of his great matches, especially the back-to-back matches he had with the heartbreak kid Shawn Michaels. However, this blog isn’t about the Undertaker, and this blog isn’t about the two matches that these two superstars had, as this blog is about a match I wish I could see more of. It’s not that I didn’t want to see more of the aforementioned, it’s just that I did get to see more of them. I’m here to talk about matches that have happened once, and hope to see again, and by the time you’re reading this the match I will talk about today and future matches may have occurred already.
Now let’s get to the match at hand.

Braun Strowman vs Brock Lesnar

Before I begin, I’m aware this isn’t the first time they met, as they were involved in a Summer slam match a month previous, but this is the first one-on-one match between the two.

The match between these two beasts took place at No Mercy September 24th, 2017. I am not going to write a recap on the match, because you can youtube it or view it on the WWE network only for $9.99.

I remember being extremely pumped for this match, as it was the first time these two have met in the squared circle. On one end of the ring, here we have the monster among men, a man who tore through the competition on Raw for over a year and was hardly pinned. On the other end of the ring, here we have a legit athlete in Brock Lesnar who also tore through the competition since his return to the company back in 2012.

Since I’ve been a wrestling mark for about a decade, I already knew before going into the match that Braun Strowman wasn’t going to win, but how was he going to lose, how would Brock retain his title were my interests. I was happy to see during the match Brock Selling for Braun Strowman, as Brock isn’t known for selling for his opponents. Just ask Dean Ambrose.

The selling didn’t last long, as Brock a few minutes into the match delivered his signature suplex move multiple times on Braun Strowman. If memory serves me correctly, the match ended after 8-minutes after Brock delivered one F-Five.

Even though the match was not that long, even though I disagreed with the booking decision as how Braun lost, I still enjoyed the match, and it left me wanting more.

Earlier I mentioned being a wrestling mark, so people like me know all about the wrestling business hahaha, I know along with other wrestling marks that Brock is dropping the title to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 in 2018. It’s to bad that these to beasts will not cross paths again, as I thought that program could’ve went a couple of more months. Let’s hope Brock Lesnar resigns with the company and we can see Stroman vs Lesner again.
