Business is more than just movez..First run.
What are people smoking? His in-ring work during his first run was extraordinary. A combination of power moves and technical grappling. His second run is a spam of suplexes and big spots.
The question was which run did you find more entertaining, not which made the most money for VinceSecond no question.
Business is more than just movez..
This business is all about presenting a star aura and in that terms its not even close, clearly second run.
Even then I would put Lesnar vs Cena (Extreme Rules 12), Lesnar vs Punk, Lesnar vs Taker HIAc, Lesnar vs Styles, Bryan, Reigns (Wrestlemania 31), Lesnar vs Rollins vs Cena (Rumble 15) up against any of Lesnars matches in 2002-04...
Lesnar vs Goldberg second run blows away Lesnar vs Goldberg during first run too
I think you have made a great observation. He comes off like an Andre The Giant or a Hulk Hogan dominant from 84-88. The fact he took out the Undertaker's streak to me says long term it was probably the best move despite Taker wanting Reigns to do it.Lesnar was untouchable in that first run. He had great matches with Eddie, Rock, Taker and of course Angle.
But for me personally, I think Brock today is a far more complete performer due to the fact his legit top level MMA background adds a psychology to the match that absolutely nobody can replicate. It is almost like he's a throwback. He's one of those guys that you know in real life nobody can fuck with and that just adds that aura you can't really explain.
Look at his triple threat match with Rollins & Cena to see perfectly why that little extra bit of psychology adds so much. He's a true legitimate monster that Vince McMahon has been trying to recreate since the 80s but can't.
With Brock you pretty much feel he's going to dominate anybody he's in there with.
