10 WWE Legends Who Ruled Suplex City Before Brock Lesnar

Far away, on the road to Parts Unknown, past the Bottomless Pit, and some fifty miles outside of Dudleyville is a city that€™s currently being ruled by Brock Lesnar. That city is famous for having inhabitants that throw each other around with a combination of technical grace and unparalleled brutality. It€™s a city where only the strongest survive, and the rulers don€™t reign for too long, as they tend to be disposed of on a regular basis. That city is Suplex City. The Suplex is one of the most fundamental moves in all of wrestling, with a myriad of different variations. Some of them are simple and easy to perform, like the Belly-to-Back Suplex, while others are more complicated or dangerous, like the Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex.

Lesnar rules Suplex City right now because he€™s one of the most intimidating forces in WWE, and someone who throws a mean German Suplex. Just ask John Cena, who suffered 16 of these at SummerSlam 2014. But this wasn€™t always the case.
