Exclusive: Theory uses natural disaster analogy to describe Brock Lesnar

Twenty years ago, Brock Lesnar showed up on Raw as a terrifying unknown rookie. He promptly broke Spike Dudley clean in half with about 40,000 powerbombs and announced himself to the world.

He was The Next Big Thing. Ten years later, he was The Beast. Two years after that, he was The Conqueror. Now he’s known as one of the greatest of all time, but Austin Theory has another, more suitable way to describe the juggernaut sized former WWE and UFC Champion.

Theory has been unfortunate enough to find himself on the opposite side of the ring from Lesnar twice in 2022. It’s fair to say that things have not panned out well for the new WWE United States Champion.

Given that the 10-time WWE World Champion has made a career out of ragdolling everyone from The Undertaker to all-conquering Universal Champion Roman Reigns, it should come as no surprise that he made light work of Theory.

The pair first met at Elimination Chamber and then again at a live event at Madison Square Garden. Neither time ended well for Theory.

Theory Compares Lesnar To A Natural Disaster

Ahead of his marquee match with Pat McAfee at this year’s WrestleMania, Theory revealed what it was like to be dismantled by a 285-pound behemoth.

“Man, I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s all so fast. It’s like being in a hurricane. I get why his finisher is called the F5.

“The whole thing is just like a tornado. I didn’t even know what was going on. One second the bell rings the next moment, I’m just flying around and spinning everywhere, then I lose. I’m like, ‘I am not prepared for this.’

“Everybody goes to Suplex City. When I took the F5 off the top of the elimination chamber, that was nobody’s idea. I was trying to get away from him; the next thing I look down, and he’s right under me, grabbing my ankle, and I’m like, ‘Oh no, I’m not making it out.’ I almost did, but then he climbs up, and that’s it. Everyone asks me what that was like, and I just say, ‘Dude, I don’t remember.'”

Lesnar has not been seen on WWE television since his loss at WrestleMania 38 to Roman Reigns but is expected to return at some point over the summer. WWE have three major stadium shows to sell out across July and September so expect The Beast to be slotted into a main event programme somewhere along the line.
