I do love the 03 Lesnar/Mysterio match from Smackdown. Brock's a freak with some of the 100mph bumps he takes missing Mysterio and the cat and mouse dynamic is executed brilliantly. Lesnar swatting Mysterio is as violent and magical as you'd expect from 2003 Mysterio and his willingess to bump like a man who doesn't fear late year disability.
Lesnar/Bryan is my current hope with Lesnar working more dates. Just do a short program on TV with segments before one match. 10-14 minutes, Bryan ducking and taking shots, Lesnar isolation and control, Bryan bumps big, build and tease a comeback, have Bryan get strong nearfalls off of countering the Kimura/F-5 and then have Lesnar maul him and win via ref stoppage/Brock Lock with Bryan not giving up. Makes Lesnar look like a monster, Bryan looks a million bucks for taking this monster to the limit and with the right booking they could elevate him up the card over the course of a few months.
Oh fuck Cal has me thinking of Tenryu vs US opponents now. Probably need to think of one of the more sympathetic babyfaces for grumpy Tenryu to mercilessly massacre. Tenryu mid 90s when he was vicious yet just beginning to become the grumpy veteran vs peak Ricky Morton sounds exotic.
Oh shit, Takayama vs Mysterio. How the fuck did that not even register? 2005 Mysterio vs 2002-04 Takayama, it would be beautiful. If you're a masochist of course.
