Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar has returned to Pro Wrestling. After losings his title to to Cain Velasquez by TKO (punches) and then suffering another TKO loss to Alistair Overeem (with a kick to the body and then punches), he’s had his fill of MMA.
During his newly revived WWE career, he’s already been able to rile up drama with Triple H. In their first encounter, Brock Lesnar took it upon himself to take on the CEO of the WWE in a live confrontation. He punched down the CEO and continued to snap his arm with a submission move called the Kimura.
The two had an official match last night at WWE SummerSlam at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. In the official match between the two hulking giants, the back and forth contest eventually lead to another arm breaking Kimura by Lesnar on Triple H.
Now having used the move three times in his pro wrestling career, it’s a wonder as to why he hasn’t been able to pull off the move in his MMA career. But in the case more submission moves make it over to the pro wrestling universe, it just might be time for the Gracies to head on over and start pushing BJJ on them.
