WWE Compares Brock Lesnar's Kimura Lock To Undertaker's Hell's Gate
"It's no surprise Brock is utilizing a Brazilian jiu-jitsu maneuver to wreak havoc in his return to WWE. The former UFC heavyweight champion studied under Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belts Erik Paulson and Greg Nelson as part of his training in the world of mixed martial arts. However, Lesnar never actually got a chance to showcase that devastating Kimura Lock in any of his UFC bouts. Using the submission to inflict bodily harm on his opponents is fresh, frightening territory for the behemoth."
They also compare the hold to The Undertaker's Hell's Gate modified gogoplata submission. They added that Superstars have two choices in Hell's Gate - tap out or pass out, but with Lesnar's Kimura Lock, there is no choice. WWE wrote:
"The difference with Lesnar's Kimura Lock? There is no choice. Brock is not satisfied with making his foes tap or pass out; he wants to put them out of commission for good. If he's already left Cena in a sling and Triple H with a fractured arm, what makes us think he'll show mercy on anyone else who stands in his way?"
