The first thing you said when Bryan came back was that you couldn't wait for, and I quote, "mark wars". What's changed?

I know Bryan's the heel and it makes sense, but AJ displaying ALL that fire to fight this unstoppable monster makes a better match imo, than a cheating little shit trying to win anyway he can.

AJ vs Brock ****1/2

Bryan vs Brock ***3/4
Agreed, I felt the same way. I wish they would book these guys to gain advantages over Lesnar without having to kick him in the nads. Even Taker had to resort to that shit, the freaking Undertaker. You don't have to be a Braun Strowman or Goldberg to hang with Lesnar, but you can still find better ways of taking him down without doing that.

If Lesnar makes an mistake by running into the ring post or something like that, it's fine.

I won't lie in saying that I was on edge to making it look as though Bryan had Lesnar almost on the verge of submitting, however.

If viewing them in a vacuum I'd say Bryan put on the better match.

But in viewing them in real world context they were basically the same match and just one of the three formats Brock has put on throughout his most recent run, Squash, Finisher Fest, and, in this case, Beatdown and Comeback.

Just because two matches followed the same formula doesn't make them the same match. It doesn't work like that. Details are important in matches, especially when determining what makes them great to begin with. In this case, both may have a similar formula, but the execution is very different. There's little to no similarity in these matches in that regard.

Re: AJ Styles or Daniel Bryan: Who got a better match out of Brock Lesnar?

Both amazing. But Bryan made me a lot of more times to believe that he is gonna win. And that's why it's better. And to leave a stomp on Brocks face, shows you how they really they were prepared for this match. Beautiful. I still think everything was Bryan's plan. Officials told to do similiar match story as Aj's and Brocks, but boy, did Bryan made it more believable.

Re: AJ Styles or Daniel Bryan: Who got a better match out of Brock Lesnar?

They were similar in a lot of ways but the opening mauling portion by Brock dragged on longer and it didn't draw as much sympathy from the crowd due to Bryan being a heel. Really would've loved to have seen this match with Bryan as a face. I loved the spot where he kept stomping Brock in the head and when he had Brock in the crossface it gave me flashbacks to Brock/Benoit.

I concur with Meltzer. Bryan/Brock was the better match. I just found Bryan's near falls to be more believable. Both were very good matches though.
