Big guys who can't lift are like small guys who're unathletic, useless.
Not sure where you've seen that, the only thing I've seen is him failing to catch a guy doing a cross-body because the jump was too short. Even though he's got more of a bodybuilder-type of body rather than a powerlifter's body, he is probably pretty damn strong.
Plus, he's very explosive and pretty quick for his size. I think he's more similar to Batista or maybe even Lesnar than he is just a new Mason Ryan who may be strong but utterly terrible at moving. Not saying he's the next Lesnar or something, but his clotheslines and stuff have some of that intensive explosive feel that most stuff Lesnar did had.
