Oh, I'm talking about this scene.She overpowered Kylo Ren for the same reason Luke overpowered his father; she was angry and Ren wasn't trying to kill her. Plus, you know, gut wound. That would kill anyone's fighting efficacy. Plus, Rey already knows how to fight: you don't grow up on a lawless pit like Jakku and not learn to defend yourself.
It was too early in the series for this. Luke had training, instruction on how to use the force, and in the first movie all he did was deflect maybe three practice bolts from a remote and have Obi-Wan help him use the force to shoot torpedoes into the Death Star.
Rey straight up bullied Ren in mind control. Pushed him back. With all the training Ren had, it was just "Nope, Better. Sorry, not sorry. Kthx"
