The reigning, defending, yadda-yadda WWE World Champion Brock Lesnar has announced that in 2020, which I still assume is fifteen years in the future, he will be entering the Royal Rumble at the number one spot. This opens the door to a load of dream matches, and tests the chemistry of those match-ups. It also raises the question: how on earth will Brock Lesnar, a man who is known for the brevity of his matches, go the distance in a match that usually lasts over an hour?
In 2019, the Destroyer had a total of eight matches, and his regular entrance lasted longer than three of those. While the Money In The Bank match lasted just over nineteen minutes from bell to bell, Lesnar only entered at the end of the match and exactly 60 seconds passed from his music hitting to him taking the case. His cash-in against Rollins lasted only a few seconds, as did him taking his current title from Kofi in a criminally underbooked match.
While there were longer matches in the year (versus Bálor at the 2019 Rumble, and the Rollins match at SummerSlam being particular highlights) I think it would be safe to say that all of Lesnar's matches in 2019 put together do not run the length of a typical Rumble match.
So, with Lesnar usually looking red-faced and ready to pass out after five minutes in most matches, here are five ways he can go the distance in the Rumble.
