Top 10 Unbreakable Records In The WWE
Every sport in the world has records that will probably never be broken. The WWE is no exception. Some of the greatest professional wrestlers in history have walked through the curtains and stepped inside the Squared Circle to entertain fans like only they can. In the process, they have raised the bar and established some records that will be never be broken.
We have put together a list of 10 unbreakable WWE records (in no particular order) and it is a list that might surprise you. Take a look:
- Shortest Royal Rumble Appearance
The 2009 Royal Rumble is an event that Santino Marella will never forget… for all the wrong reasons. It was a hilarious moment too. Santino Marella charged to the ring and leapt through the ropes. Unfortunately he came face to face with Kane who knocked him over the top rope and sent him crashing back down to the floor in just 1.9 seconds. It is a record that Marella will not be too proud of but it is one that it looks as though will remain with him forever.
2.Most WWE Matches
Every WWE fan will remember the debut of “The Big Red Machine” Kane at Bad Blood 1997in the first ever Hell in a Cell match. That was the first time the WWE Universe got a glimpse of Kane and he has left destruction in his wake ever since. Kane is a monster that has been close to unstoppable for over two decades. He also has the distinction of being the WWE superstar with most number of matches to his credit. He has wrestled close to 1500 times and with a physique and gigantic as his, this is nothing short of a miracle. It is also a testament to how well he has looked after himself over the years and this is one record that is unlikely to be broken.
3. Shortest Match in WWE History
In 2000, on an episode of Raw, the tag team of Jerry Lawler and Chris Jericho were supposed to take on the team of Tazz and Hulk Hogan. With Lawler, Jericho and Tazz in the ring, the music of Hogan blared around the arena. That is when it all went crazy. Instead of Hogan, Mideon came out. Tazz was bewildered and Lawler took full advantage of it by rolling him up for a three count. The duration of the match: 3 seconds.
4. Shortest Title Reign
At the No Mercy pay-per-view in the year 2000, the current World Heavyweight Champion, Triple H took on the current Intercontinental Champion, Kane. The stipulation of the match was that whoever won would unify the two belts. Triple H won and the titles were unified. He held the Intercontinental Championship Belt for under a minute before it made a comeback few months down the line. Triple H still holds the record for the shortest title reign in WWE history because of that.
5. Longest Intercontinental Reign
The Intercontinental Championship is one of the most prized and prestigious titles in WWE. It has been held by legends like Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Stone Cold, The Rock, Don Muraco, The Ultimate Warrior, Mr. Perfect and Razor Ramon among others.
The Honky Tonk Man however holds the record for the longest Intercontinental Reign in WWE history. He held the gold for a whopping 454 days and it remains the longest Intercontinental championship reign in history. This is a record that will not be broken any time soon.
6. Most Days As a World Champion
The record for the most days as a world champion is one that will never be broken. The record is held by none other than the legendary Bruno Sammartino. His reign began on May 17, 1963 when he beat Buddy Rogers at the Madison Square Garden. He lost the title on January 18, 1971 after a whopping 2,803 days. Yes, there weren’t as many championship defenses as there are in modern day wrestling but it is still an incredible record.
7. Longest Undefeated Streak
The man, the myth known as Andre The Giant was a larger than life superstar. Called The Eighth Wonder of the World, he was a wrestler unlike any other. Documentaries have been made on his life to tell fans what he was like in real life outside of the ring.
Among different achievements, Andre also holds the record for the longest undefeated streak in WWE history. He went unbeaten between 1973 and 1987. Yes, this is not a typo, he really went undefeated for fifteen straight years. The astonishing run ended when Hulk Hogan beat him at WrestleMania III.
8. Most Tag Team Titles
The WWE has seen some legendary tag teams over the years. Teams like The Hardy Boys, Edge and Christian, The New Age Outlaws and The Brothers of Destruction are on that list. There is however one tag team that stands out even from this group of legends. That tag team is The Dudley Boyz.
Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley together won more World Tag Team Championships than any other tag team in history. They were crowned WWE Tag Team Champions and the WWE World Tag Team Champions a combined nine times. If you add their WCW World Tag Team Championship reign to the mix, then the total goes to ten. There is not a tag team that will be able to top these numbers.
9. The Streak
WrestleMania is called “The Showcase of the Immortals” for a reason. It is the biggest and most watched professional wrestling pay-per-view in history and one every wrestler wants to be a part of. The event has dished up plenty of incredible moments and records over the years but none bigger than The Undertaker’s winning streak.
His winning run came to be known as “The Streak” which saw the legendary Dead Man go 21-0 between 1991 and 2013. He beat everyone that came in his way. The run was ended by Brock Lesnar in 2014. The Streak became so popular and so prestigious that ending it became a big honor than the WWE and the World Championships.
10. The Longest Women’s World Championship Reign
Last but definitely not the least, the iconic Fabulous Moolah holds the record for the longest women’s world championship reign in WWE history. She won the biggest prize in women’s professional wrestling in 1956 and lost the belt in 1984 after 28 years. It is probably the most impressive championship reign in the sport’s history, men and women combined. The duration of the reign makes it impossible for anyone to surpass.
