WWE: Brock Lesnar's eight best matches in the company

Brock Lesnar is now a free agent. 

He revealed this on WWE SmackDown, as he prepares to go one-on-one, once again, with Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. 

The two have a long and storied rivalry and Lesnar has confirmed that he can, essentially, do whatever he wants in WWE at this point.

So we thought it might be fun to look back at his eight best WWE matches ever, in no particular order!

V KURT ANGLE - SMACKDOWN - IRON MAN MATCH

An Iron Man match is a tough one to pull off, because you're essentially demanding that your audience pay you their undivided attention for a certain length of time. It's especially tough when you challenge them to do that for an hour. 

But Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar made art on SmackDown, with the match an absolute classic. 

Brock played up to the heel character, putting Kurt on the backfoot immediately by sacrificing a fall with a steel chair beating. 

And Kurt then had to race against the clock to make the score up. A bona fide masterpiece. 

V ROMAN REIGNS (& SETH ROLLINS) - WRESTLEMANIA 31

This one is all of the Christmases at once. 

Roman and Brock had faced some fan backlash ahead of the main event of Wrestlemania but, when it was just the two of them, they went toe-to-toe in a brutal, stiff clash. 

Roman fought from underneath with Brock bumping for everything, until they were both too exhausted to move. 

Then Seth Rollins' music hit, the Heist of the Century happened, and a classic moment had been created. 

V JOHN CENA - SUMMERSLAM 2014

This might be the best squash match ever, just for how unbelievably shocking it was. 

We were firmly in the stages of Cena winning pretty much every big match he was booked for. 

And he didn't lay a glove on Brock Lesnar. Brock hit an F5 within a minute of the match and the beating only got worse from there. 

Lesnar got the 1-2-3 and he sent a message along the way. 

V DANIEL BRYAN - SURVIVOR SERIES 2018

We could have put his bout with AJ Styles the year before in here but this tops it. 

Bryan is the perfect underdog, even if he does resort to heel tactics by cracking Lesnar in his nether regions, and there's just enough believability to every move to have fans jumping out of their seats for the false finishes. 

For just a split second, we all really believed Bryan might just do it. He didn't, but this is a masterpiece of storytelling from both men, and a real calling card for Brock in showing that he is one of the best sellers in professional wrestling. 

V CM PUNK - SUMMERSLAM 2013

The Best In The World vs The Beast. This was always going to be great. 

Brock has made a career out of elevating smaller guys even when beating them and this is the case again here. 

There's also some lovely soap opera-esque storytelling with Paul Heyman, who previously worked alongside Punk, at Brock's side, and the moves are so crisp and smooth. 

A wonderful match. 

V EDDIE GUERRERO - NO MERCY 2004

This one is a bit emotional. 

The late Eddie Guerrero is perhaps the greatest professional wrestler of all time and this was his crowning moment in WWE. 

His frog splash to win the Undisputed Championship led to an almighty pop from the fans in attendance and is a testament to Brock's character work; people were desperate for him to lose, so dominant had he been. 

V THE UNDERTAKER - HELL IN A CELL 2015

This one's a proper throwback. 

Brock and Undertaker went after each other in their absolutely brutal Hell in a Cell match in 2015, which was absolutely not set up for the PG era. 

Both men bled, they exposed the ring floor, and Lesnar ultimately hit Taker with a huge F5 onto the floor to get the pin. 

V ZACH GOWEN - SMACKDOWN

A brutal watch, this, but it really goes to build Brock as an unstoppable monster with absolutely no empathy. 

Gowen, an amputee, had his mother watching on but Brock absolutely destroyed him. 

Brock made him bleed, F5'd him into the turnbuckle, hit him with multiple chair shots, and even flipped over the stretcher on which he was being carried out of the arena. 

Gowen actually won the match by disqualification, but as a show of force, there have been few better booked matches to get over a monster.
