Royal Rumble 2022 will feature a long-awaited dream match as Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley will finally face off one-on-one. Fans have wanted to see this match for a long time because Lesnar and Lashley are two monsters with a destructive powerhouse wrestling style, and they have everything it takes to steal the show.
With the clash of the titans in sight, people are starting to wonder who will prevail, and in these evenly matched bouts the little details make all the difference. Only the best wrestler will be left standing, but who is the best? And who is better than the other at what?
10 Brock Lesnar: Playing A Face
Brock Lesnar has been a heel for most of his career, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know how to play a babyface. Lesnar’s current persona has reminded us all that he can be quite charismatic and even funny when he puts his mind to it, and by all accounts the fans are loving it.
Bobby Lashley, on the other hand has never been an extraordinary babyface, as he’s not very charismatic, and it’s not as easy for him to connect with the fans.
9 Bobby Lashley: Playing A Heel
While Bobby Lashley was not successful as a babyface, as a heel he has been quite the opposite. Lashley managed to develop his All Mighty gimmick very well, which led him to finally establish himself as a main-eventer, even carrying Monday Night Raw for a few months.
Obviously, Brock Lesnar is also a phenomenal heel, with an unmatched final boss aura, but Lashley’s thing seems innate, and it’s clear that this heel run of Bobby’s has been pure money.
8 Brock Lesnar: In-Ring Skills
Frankly, Bobby Lashley is a bit limited in the ring, as he has an arsenal of basic moves, and it is only on the basis of his intensity that he has managed to break through among the best.
Whereas Brock Lesnar has always been that kind of wrestler that is going to blow your mind every time he enters the ring, being one of the most impressive wrestlers of all time. When someone starts to think that Brock Lesnar is repetitive, then he goes and executes an insane spot, and it has been that way throughout his entire career.
7 Bobby Lashley: Strength
In this aspect, Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar are pretty evenly matched, and it is very difficult to determine who is stronger. However, one could think that The All Mighty is slightly over Brock Lesnar in this aspect.
Lashley’s body is pure fiber, as he has muscles in his veins, as a result of many hours of training. On the other hand, The Beast Incarnate is a bit more robust, with a little more body fat.
6 Brock Lesnar: Mic Skills
Brock Lesnar is currently doing phenomenal character work, cutting very good and funny promos, like that segment with Sami Zayn on SmackDown, or the recent segment with Bobby Lashley on Monday Night Raw.
Even though Paul Heyman is back with Brock, The Conqueror proved that he doesn’t need the former. Certainly, Bobby Lashley has improved a lot in terms of mic work, but admittedly he’s no better than Brock Lesnar in this regard.
5 Bobby Lashley: Submissions
Brock Lesnar used to use submission moves more frequently, but over time that took a back seat. Brock still has the Kimura Lock in his arsenal, but he uses it in specific cases.
On the other hand, Bobby Lashley has The Hurt Lock, which is one of the most devastating submission moves out there. Thanks to this extremely painful lock, The All Mighty has been able to defeat anyone who crosses his path and reach the top of the company.
4 Brock Lesnar: Finisher
Bobby Lashley’s finisher is precisely The Hurt Lock, and while it is an excellent way to finish his opponents, Brock Lesnar’s is superior.
Lesnar sets up his opponent by taking him to Suplex City and then performs a devastating F-5, which is nearly impossible to kick out of.
The Beast Incarnate has used the F-5 to finish countless opponents, including legends such as The Undertaker, John Cena, Kurt Angle, Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan, Edge, Triple H and Roman Reigns. Brock Lesnar’s finisher is one of the most powerful in WWE history, hands down.
3 Bobby Lashley: Stamina
Neither of these two men is the kind of wrestler who can deliver an hour-long wrestling match, and maybe not even half an hour, or at least not nowadays.
At 44 years old, Brock Lesnar doesn’t have much stamina, as after five minutes he already looks exhausted, but if he reserves energy it seems like his limit is 15 minutes. Although Bobby Lashley is a year older than Lesnar, he can last longer in a match. In fact, last year he delivered a 25-minute match against Drew McIntyre.
2 Brock Lesnar: Career
Bobby Lashley has had a good career, with several great moments. And he is currently living his best moment. However, his career hasn’t been half as amazing as Brock Lesnar’s.
Certainly, Brock has been a part-time wrestler for most of his career, but he has still made a huge impact on the sports entertainment industry. Lesnar has arguably been WWE’s biggest attraction in the 21st century, destroying his rivals and winning championships on a regular basis.
1 Bobby Lashley: Improvement
As previously mentioned, Bobby Lashley is having the best time of his career. He improved a lot in 2021, and truth be told, it is not usual for a 45-year-old wrestler to improve. The All Mighty is doing an admirable job becoming one of the best wrestlers in WWE.
On the other hand, Brock Lesnar’s best years are long gone. Yes, he can still put on a fantastic show and is a terrific performer, but admittedly, he no longer has room for improvement.
Bobby Lashley’s WWE Championship reign has ended at the hands of Big E. How did each of his championship defenses stack up, when ranked?
