Re: Is Brock Lesnar unsafe to work with?

No. That's his character. He's supposed to make it look real and intense. He's coming in as an MMA fighter. He's probably safer to work with than half the roster.

Re: Is Brock Lesnar unsafe to work with?

Brock isn't unsafe, the dude's built like a beast and he has a lot of strength so of course his fighting is going to look brutal. If he went all soft it'd look fake.

If Brock wanted to hurt someone, they'd be hurt. The only person who I remembered being hurt by him was Holly and that was because the idiot sandbagged him.

No one on the roster can even touch him... the only one who comes close is Del Rio, only because he is also a pro MMA fighter
yeah nobody knows about DEL RIO being an actual MMA fighter

to this day he holds the record for being the only MMA fighter in HISTORY to fight with a mask on! LOL!! (when he fought mirko cro cop in pride and lost)

I think his record is like 6-2

Alberto Del Rio is a BAD MAN

I used to think this too.. but then I watched shoots with some of the guys I thought he was working sloppily with and they had nothing but good things to say about him. Even Bob Holly who hates everyone likes brock and said it was his own fault in his shoot. He did have a tendency to try and hit moves he never should have been attempting (shooting star press) I think that's really when he's the least safe.

Brock has strength for weeks, that's a big part of wrestling safely. Add in Sparring and training he's gone through in the last 4 or 5 years and you get a guy that knows the difference between the pressure it takes to snap an arm or leg or break an orbital socket and the pressure it takes to complete the move and no more. he's safe.

His MMA record is 9-5. He was 3-4 in the stint 2001-04 and he went 5-1 in 2007-10.

I think he wore his mask in every MMA fight he had in Japan. I don't really know that much about his latter period of fighting though.

Re: Is Brock Lesnar unsafe to work with?

But donīt forget that they actually are in different weights.

If Brock wanted to force Del Rio down on the math there would be no problem for him. Del Rio might not have the same ease to get Brock down on the math since they are in different weight divisions.

Re: Is Brock Lesnar unsafe to work with?

People forget that wrestling is a physical business. While it's scripted, these guys are going to take real hits and real bumps, and...YES, big stronger guys are going to hit harder. Whoa! What a shocker!

That is Lesnar's selling point, and guys that work with him know what their dealing with. He's a bull of a dude, and it's all part of selling him in as a monster. He looks like he hits like a truck...because he does. Lesnar's character is uncontrollable and his actions must always reflect that on TV. The dude is a former UFC heavyweight champion, you can't have him going in the ring and doing generic air clotheslines that don't look convincing at all.

And I don't want to hear about the chair throwing. These guys get ladders thrown at their faces. The shit was hilarious watching Lesnar throw directors chairs at Miz. I need a GIF of it.

Edit: THANK YOU creem. Just saw your post above!


Blood. Urine. Vomit.

Del Rio is also a heavyweight, although of course smaller than Lesnar. The HW bracket is 60 lbs wide. But in any case Lesnar is of course the better fighter.
