If Dong Zhuo didn't have Lu Bu

If Dong Zhuo didn't have Lu Bu would he be able to face the allies and win.

Lu Bu's role against the alliance was insignificant. All I know is that he was defeated by Sun Jian. :P

do you mean Hua Xiong by any chance? :)
I know a lot of people say Sun Jian defeated him historically where it gives Credit to Guan in the SGYY
If he did defeat Lu Bu historically, can you expand because I find this a bit intriguing.

Sun Jian killed Hua Xiong, and took his head, right?
(for those who didn't know, that was how you would find out how many people a unit killed and if they killed enough, they would gain higher merit)
I don't know what happened after that, but I didn't think he even really fought Lu Bu.


Anyways, I too think his role was insignificant. Maybe I'm wrong, but people like him and Zhuge Liang, and Guan Yu are so overrated it's sometimes hard to tell truth from fiction.

I think it really wouldnt matter, Dong Zhuo had troops. And it was Hua Xiong

Lu Bu made a little difference, and maybe that Dong Zhuo would have prevaile in Chang An, but he would probably end up defeated by Cao Cao or Yuan Shao.

I meant Lu Bu of course since I'm not talking about the novel. Hua Xiong was another guy who got whooped by Sun Jian. :P

Dong Zhuo would still lose. He soly depended on Lu Bu to win the battle for him so without Lu Bu Dong Zhuo would lose really fast

There's absolutely no indication that Dong Zhuo depended on Lu Bu solely. Not even in the novel. :P

But still he would have lost I guess.
Don't think you're weird, just act like it!
