Throughout the years, Brock Lesnar's part-time wrestling schedule has garnered its share of both frustration and jest among WWE enthusiasts. However, the current year, 2023, tells a different tale as The Beast has taken center stage at virtually every Premium Live Event, with a sole exception being the Money in the Bank pay-per-view.
The pinnacle of this journey was witnessed at SummerSlam, where Lesnar faced off against Cody Rhodes in a clash that ultimately saw Rhodes emerge victorious. Yet, it wasn't just the outcome that captured attention; it was Lesnar's performance during and after the match that truly stole the spotlight.
This encounter not only solidified Rhodes as a burgeoning star within the company but also unveiled a seldom-seen aspect of the former WWE Champion's persona.
Booker T Praises Lesnar's Exceptional Performance
One individual who was unequivocally impressed by Lesnar's recent endeavors is none other than Booker T, a seasoned WWE veteran and one of Lesnar's earliest adversaries upon entering the main roster.
In a candid discussion on the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T effusively expressed his belief that Lesnar should be acknowledged for his outstanding display at Ford Field. He passionately stated: "Brock Lesnar, what a worker!
What a truly exceptional worker. In my eyes, Brock should unquestionably be honored with the Worker of the Year award. His performance in that Saturday night match was nothing short of exceptional." Lesnar's 2023 journey began at the Royal Rumble, where he ignited a streak of Premium Live Events participation.
However, his tenure in the Royal Rumble match itself was notably brief, as he found himself eliminated by Bobby Lashley within a mere two and a half minutes. Subsequent to his loss against Lashley at the Elimination Chamber, Lesnar engaged in an unprecedented showdown with Omos.
This monumental encounter unfolded as the opening bout on Night 2 of WrestleMania 39. Reports suggest that Lesnar's decision to face the gargantuan Omos stemmed from his reluctance to collaborate with Bray Wyatt. The aftermath of WrestleMania saw Lesnar embroiled in a feud with Cody Rhodes, an altercation that laid the groundwork for a trilogy of matches encompassing Backlash, Night of Champions, and SummerSlam.
