There’s the old saying in sports that records are meant to be broken.
Brett Favre's 297 straight starts in the NFL, Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak in baseball and Wilt Chamberlin’s 100-point basketball game are just a few that are considered legendary.
When it comes to professional wrestling, the old saying doesn’t always apply. Many of the best records from current or future Hall of Famers were set at a different time in wrestling than what we see now.
Records are talked about when we see a star holding a championship for an extended period of time, or when a new star wins every match in the first four or five months of his career.
Yes, the wins and losses are planned out. But just like any athlete, every pro wrestler wants to be able to stand center stage accomplishing what only few, if any, can do.
These five impressive records are the pro wrestling equivalents to the Dolphins 17-0 season or the century mark in basketball.
