If one is to include former and current Superstars, the answer is no. Former WWE Superstar Mark Henry was the strongest when he was still working with the company. In fact, he was the World’s Strongest Man. But, that’s officially. What about unofficially?

It so happens that Brock Lesnar reportedly benches over 600 pounds and swaths over 1,000 pounds. This figure in itself would put Lesnar at the top.

The Beast returned to the ring at WWE SummerSlam 2021. Following his return, he had a dark match with John Cena where he F5’d him multiple times. The Champ weighs around 251 pounds. This means, Cena has the capacity to lift 251 pounds with ease.

Next Roman Reigns weighs around 265 pounds. The Beast has executed moves where he has actually picked up and thrown Reigns over. This is evidence of the immense strength Lesnar possesses.
