In the world of wrestling and WWE in particular, the big stars of the promotion often grab the limelight and the adulation of the fans. They are treated like Gods by the adoring WWE Universe and rightly so, as they bring joy to the masses week after week.
But, WWE Superstars of yesteryear like The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan are incredibly popular with the WWE Universe even though they haven’t featured in too many Live shows and often just make appearances in pay-per-views and important matches.
There are a bunch of Superstars, though, who have appeared in almost every event of the WWE – from Live shows to pay-per-views and the weekly tapings of Raw or SmackDown – who are the real workhorses of the brand in their years in WWE and other promotions.
Here’s a list of 10 WWE Superstars (current and former) with the most matches. (This list includes matches in WWE as well as other promotions. The number of matches updated till 12 August, 2019) (Data Courtesy: ProfightDB)
#9 John Cena – 1372
John Cena is one of the most popular Superstars in WWE history, and for nearly a decade, the WWE banked on him to bring in fans. The Face That Runs the Place does not make as many appearances as he used to, owing to him becoming a television and movie star, but he is still hugely popular among the fans.
Cena has made over 1300 appearances in his wrestling career and has won 16 world titles in his glittering wrestling career. The Leader of the Cenation has won three World Heavyweight Championships and thirteen WWE Championships.
His feud with Edge propelled him into being the ultimate babyface of the company. Unlike other wrestlers on this list, Cena has fought a majority of matches in WWF/WWE promotion since signing for them in 2000.
Cena is now a part-time Superstar with WWE, appearing briefly on big PPVs as he is now concentrating on his acting career.
