Brock Lesnar match steals show at WWE's 'SummerSlam'


If there's any doubt that Brock Lesnar can still hold his own in a scripted World Wrestling Entertainment event, he crushed those doubts Sunday night in Los Angeles.

Lesnar (the Beast), in a 25-minute match with good-guy C.M. Punk (the Best), stole the show at "SummerSlam," WWE's second-biggest pay-per-view of the year.

In their review of the show, the Torch gave the match 4.5 stars out of 5, calling it an "excellent, show-stealing brawl/fight/scrap."

Here's a video clip of part of the match via YouTube, but we're guessing the WWE machine will take down ASAP, so watch while you can:

Other sports/entertainment websites are also praising the match. SB Nation put it this way: "Take a former champ and a monster, add a sleazy manager and a steel chair. Bake for 30 minutes and get a classic."

The adds: "Lesnar has become a mammoth in the wrestling business once again. With his unmatchable stature and menacing appearance—coupled with the fact that he is a bona fide collegiate wrestling champion and was a MMA superstar—WWE’s decision to bring him back has been perfect."

Lesnar is on a part-time schedule with WWE. That means he's not on the road constantly, and only appears in the biggest events for the biggest paydays.
