Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe Rematch: Who’s More Likely to Win?

The recently held match between two of the toughest wrestlers in WWE was surely one of the biggest wrestling events of this year. WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, battled it out against the  street fighting style of Samoa Joe last Sunday night at the “Great Balls Of Fire” event broadcast on the WWE Network. The match turned out to be a victory for Lesnar, coming back from a severe beating by perhaps the toughest challenger he has faced.

Brief Summary of the match …

Samoa Joe dominated the early going sneak attacking Lesnar. However that domination lasted only a few minutes as the 40-year-old Lesnar found an opening to give Samoa Joe his signature move, the F-5. This then resulted in Lesnar pinning Joe.  The victory however took a toll on both competitors as this seemed more like an MMA fight than a wrestling match.

The Probability of a Rematch

The  was the first time Lesnar defended his title which he won by beating Bill Goldberg at WrestleMania 33.

The battle to prove Lesnar’s dominance wasn’t  highly convincing because Samoa Joe had a long share of dominance in different portions of the bout. The “Beast Incarnate” just got lucky because he timed his F-5 finisher perfectly.

If it wasn’t for Lesnar’s experience and perfect timing, the result might have turned out the other way. Because Samoa Joe proved himself to be such a brooding opponent for Brock Lesnar a buzz for a rematch began moments after the “Great Balls Of Fire” event.

Here’s a head-to-head matchup between the two in case they settle for a rematch shortly. The fighters’ career background and a handful of important stats are also presented.  Keep in mind that Joe will face top challenger Roman Reigns on June 17th and the winner of that match will go on to wrestle Lesnar at Summerslam.
