One of the most eventful years in the history of professional wrestling is coming to an end in a matter of weeks. 2019 saw a lot of firsts inside the squared circle, and a lot of things happened that fans deemed impossible not too long ago.

Former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes is now the EVP and top Superstar in a legit Pro Wrestling organization named AEW. WWE has brought back shades of the Attitude Era, and CM Punk of all people now works for a WWE show on FOX!

Amidst all this excitement, we also saw several records being broken by WWE Superstars. Let's take a look at 10 WWE records that were broken in 2019.

This year, Natalya broke Banks' record by lasting a whopping 56 minutes, but this was the night of "The Man" Becky Lynch, who was the last woman standing in the match.
