Lesnar was a physical beast, not a super skilled wrestler. Goes to show that superior sheer physciality can overcome way superior technique, which is contrary to lots of martial art cliches and mantras.....the opposite can be true as well of course. Even as an NCAA champ, he is nowhere near elite level wrestling circles.
