Welcome to the second edition in my ongoing series on "The Faces of WrestleMania."
In summary, the aim of the first edition was to explore which wrestlers had appeared at WrestleMania most frequently throughout history, that were still actively appearing there today.
The stipulation was that they had to have appeared at WrestleMania 26 or WrestleMania 27 to qualify. For full details of rules for inclusion, see the second slide of that article.
I will repeat, as people in comments did not realize it, this list includes all appearances (be they wrestling or not), but only people who are primarily wrestling. I will be doing a list of non-wrestlers as the next article. A lot of people complained about commentators and announcers that were not present.
If it makes the fact I am including them in a separate article easier to swallow, Hornswoggle would sadly belong on that list too.
This article aims to assess how much the list has changed after WrestleMania 28. Wrestlers must have appeared at WrestleMania 27 or 28, and those who last appeared at WrestleMania 26 (2010) will be cut from the list.
There are also a few additions to the list. As the men at the bottom of last year's list had seven appearances on a WrestleMania stage, I decided to set the ground figure as six, to allow for the fact that many from last year's list did not make the cut this time around.
This means wrestlers would have had to be competing in WrestleManias from 2007 or earlier—making this list a definitive look at the PG era's regular faces, whereas the previous list had a few Ruthless Aggression holdovers such as Batista and Shelton Benjamin.
Any guesses who might have made the cut that did not before?
Some are well-deserved and long-earned.
Others are certainly going to upset most of you, I suspect.
