When Brock Lesnar Picked Up The Referee With Just One Hand

When Brock Lesnar Picked Up The Referee With Just One Hand

Brock Lesnar is well known for his strength and power and it might never have been on show more resoundingly than when he picked up a referee off the floor with just one hand.

There's very good reasons why Lesnar is known as the Beat Incarnate and the WWE champion is easily one of the scariest men in the company, he's a former UFC heavyweight champion after all.

Back in 2012, on his return to WWE, he had a match at Extreme Rules against John Cena. Despite losing the match Lesnar showed off his strength by picking up referee Charles Robinson with just one hand and tossing him quite casually back in the ring.

Brock left WWE in 2004 and had been in the UFC from 2008 to 2011. On April 2nd 2012 he returned to WWE for the first time in eight years when he interrupted Cena on Raw, the night after Wrestlemania 28.

The Leader of the Cenation had lost to the Rock at 'Mania' and when Cena asked for the 'Great One' to come to the ring he was met by Lesnar's entrance, with the former NCAA champion F-5ing his rival in the ring.

That set up their 'Extreme Rules' classic a month later with Cena getting the win over Lesnar.

Lesnar is back as WWE champion, having defeated Kofi Kingston for the title last month on Smackdown's debut on FOX.

He has since fought a rematch of his first UFC loss when he faced Cain Velasquez at the Crown Jewel even in Saudi Arabia in October, before quitting Smackdown to move back to Monday night Raw.

After fighting Velasquez he could soon face another well known face from combat sport with Tyson Fury calling out the 42-year-old.

Speaking on the After the Bell podcast, the lineal heavyweight boxing champion said, "Hopefully you see me in the ring again. I want to fight Brock Lesnar next. One clip from the Gypsy King and he'll wake up in Tokyo."

Cena's future with WWE is less clear. The 16 time champion's appearance have become more sporadic down the years and he hasn't appeared since the July 22nd 2019 Raw Reunion show, where he had a rap battle with the Usos.

He has certainly taken his 'you can't see me' mantra too far for many of his fans.
