Probably so, yeah. And if we're taking the books into account, Reacher also has like 10 inches and 100 pounds on Wick

Wick is damn good in a fight, but his true skill lies in guns, then knives and h2h.

Reacher is basically the exact opposite. He's okay with guns, but he's brutal in a fist fight.

Yeah, book Reacher is a big dude, but his fighting style is totally different if I remember right. More "brutalize, beat the fuck out of you with my size & strength" rather than the display of skill we got from Jack in movie 1 (I have yet to see #2 of either franchise lol).

Remember...John made a dude the size of Kevin Nash shit his pants and thank him (Wick) for being able to take a night off...rather than get his ass handed to him.

...by sneaking up on him and holding a gun to the back of his head

I've never seen either Jack Reacher, or the second John Wick, so I'm curious at how good Reacher is actually cause Wick is pretty nutty...but with guns, as people said

Well when you murder a city full of people in one night, it builds a certain reputation. Iirc he realized who John was, or saw him shoot a few guys and then gave up before he had to fight.

Reacher dented a military-grade desk with a guys head and not that much effort involved.

I will say as of 2 though, Wick has some stupid durability, although durability doesn't help with joint locks and bone breaks.

He's that much better in h2h?

Yeah, he goes through fodder minions hth like Wick does with Gun-Fu and his extended fight with an assassin at the end of Reacher 2 was long, brutal and impressive in terms of damage intake and yield.

I don't remember either movie or its sequel for a blow-by-blow account of their fights, but I'd imaging Reacher beats the hell out of Wick H2H and loses in a gun fight.
