The WWE has rich history. Which of the company's records are unbreakable?
As the WWE gets ready for the biggest event of 2013, WrestleMania 29, it's time to take a look at some of the company's records that are unbreakable.
Just a forewarning, I am very literal in the sense of unbreakable. It may be a great record or accomplishment, but if it's breakable, it will be lower on this list.
The WWE has so many records that it was nearly impossible to narrow it down to just 10.
But without further ado, here are the WWE records that are unbreakable.
Record: 926 matches, according to Internet Wrestling Database.
It’s a shame that Kane isn’t on more “Best of All Time” lists. He has been a workhorse for the company.
He’s wrestled almost 1,000 matches in his WWE career, putting him 162 matches ahead of Big Show, who is second on the list.
Kane should be more than a three-time world champion, but his body of work is definitely impressive. His ability to stay relatively healthy during his career is a testament to both his athleticism and intelligence. Kane knows what moves he should and shouldn’t be performing on a nightly basis.
The Big Red Machine is the Iron Man of the WWE.
Holder: WrestleMania III
In March 1987 the WWE set its attendance record, packing over 93,000 people in the Silverdome in Pontiac, Mich.
In perhaps the most anticipated WWE Championship match in history, Hulk Hogan took on Andre the Giant, who hadn’t lost in 15 years.
The significance of the match was felt by the fans who flocked to Michigan to see it first-hand.
Never again will the WWE have as many people view an event. It may come close this year at Met Life Stadium and next year at WrestleMania 30, but there is no doubt in my mind the attendance record will always belong to WrestleMania III.
Record: 11 eliminations
Eliminating over one-third of competitors is a good way to make this list. The only reason this record isn’t higher is because he didn’t win the match.
Kane dominated the match from the second he stepped into the ring. He was the last competitor eliminated from the match, by the winner Stone Cold Steve Austin.
This performance may be one of the most unbreakable records because he eliminated 11 of the 29 other men in the Royal Rumble.
Record: 1.9 Seconds
Holder: Santino Marella
Let’s face it; Santino Marella is one of the biggest jokes in WWE history. He’s a goofball, as proved by his performance at the Royal Rumble in 2009.
After running to the ring with a determined look on his face, Marella was instantly met by a Kane clothesline.
“I wasn’t ready,” he shouted, obviously upset with his performance.
This was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen at the Rumble.
Record: 16-time World Champion…Wooooo!
Holder: Ric Flair
Ric Flair, the 16-time World Champion, is only threatened by John Cena, who is a 12-time world champion.
Flair’s record would be higher on the list
Other active wrestlers in both WWE and TNA who technically have a chance to catch him are Triple H (13), Sting (12), Kurt Angle (11), and Randy Orton (nine).
Ric Flair is one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, and he holds one of those records that will not be broken in the near future.
Stone Cold has won three Royal Rumbles, with the first coming in 1997.
Holder: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
“Stone Cold” Steve Austin dominated Royal Rumble matches during the Attitude Era, winning in 1997, 1998 and 2001.
Those three wins may be enough to give him the record for his lifetime. The only other Superstars who have won multiple Royal Rumbles are Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels and John Cena. All are tied with two victories apiece
Cena is the only active member of this club, but I doubt his chances to break the record. He may tie it, but he will not win four.
The WWE was on a trend of letting Superstars win their first Rumble before Cena won in January. The last time a Superstar won multiple Rumbles before that was in 2001, when Austin won his third.
The WWE will be smart to keep that trend going in 2014. If they do, Austin’s record will be safe.
Record: 15 years
From 1973 until 1987, Andre The Giant was unbeaten in the WWE. “The Eighth Wonder of the World” had his streak snapped by Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania III.
Think about that for a second. Most of John Cena’s fans haven’t been alive for 15 years. Being undefeated for that long is an incredible feat.
The Undertaker is 20-0 at WrestleMania.
Record: Undertaker is 20-0 at WrestleMania
If not for my literal stance on the meaning unbreakable, The Undertaker’s streak at WrestleMania would be at the top.
It may not be the most unbreakable, but it is definitely the most memorable.
As we all know, the Undertaker is currently 20-0 at WrestleMania. He’s defeated numerous WWE Hall of Famers, sure-to-be inductees and popular WWE Superstars at the Showcase of the Immortals.
There is no doubt that this Streak is quite possibly the most impressive record in WWE history. It can be broken, however.
Record: 2,803 days (almost eight years)
Holder: Bruno Sammartino
On May 17, 1963, Bruno Sammartino defeated Buddy Rogers to capture the championship inside Madison Square Garden. It wasn’t until Jan. 18, 1971, that Sammartino was defeated.
Seven years is a long time in wrestling. He may not have defended it as often as Superstars do now, but he still is the longest-reigning WWE Champion to date.
Record: 28 years, per WWE.com
Holder: The Fabulous Moolah
The WWE officially recognizes Fabulous Moolah’s reign as lasting from 1956, when she became the first recognized Women’s Champion, until losing the title in 1984.
A reign spanning four decades, is a ridiculous amount of time for anyone to hold a championship. There were many threats in the '50s, '60s, '70s and '80s, which makes this unparalleled record even more impressive.
Never again will another WWE Superstar or Diva hold a championship for a tenth of her reign (2.8 years). This record is truly the most unbreakable record in WWE history.
