WWE: Greatest streaks of all time
Whenever it comes to the greatest streaks, Only one name hits our mind: The Undertaker. 20-0 at WrestleMania is remarkable. We perhaps had the best match of this era at WrestleMania 25, “The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels”. But is that it? Does The Undertaker hold the record for the best streak? Take a look at some of the greatest reigns of wrestling and you will find out which ones are really great.
Andre the Giant :
7 ft 4 and nearly 600 lbs, he holds the record of being undefeated for close to 15 years. It is no wonder that such a giant of a man remained undefeated. It took the immortal Hulk-Hogan to end this streak at WrestleMania 3 in a classic Championship Match. Take a look at some of the most dominant moves of the giant.
Fabulous Moolah :
She was undoubtedly the best female wrestler for several decades. She was WWE Women’s Champion for 10,170 days (about 28 years). Even after a few defeats, she still had some reigns of 527, 2862,947, 2113 and 3651 days. She was an inspiration for many women wrestlers. Here is a tribute video on her.
Hulk Hogan :
Hogan was the face of the wrestling company in his era. He was champion for 1474 days and his streak was ended by Andre the Giant. It seems to be funny that Hulk ended Andre’s reign and Andre ended Hogan’s.
Bill Goldberg :
It was 173-0 when Kevin Nash defeated him to break his straight wins. Bill didn’t lose any match for nearly 3 years. Goldberg was one of the most dominant wrestlers in WWE. We saw his dominance when he speared the Rock on his debut.
Bruno Sammartino :
He defeated Buddy Rogers in 1963 to win the World Championship and from that day, no one was able to defeat this Italian for about 2803 days. After that defeat, he got his belt back after 2 years and then he kept it again for 4 years. Sammartino was the first megastar of WWE. Here are some of the moves of this superman.
The Undertaker :
No need to say a single word about The Phenom. Everyone knows that The Dead Man is undefeated at WrestleMania. 20-0 at WrestleMania is quite an achievement. He is surely one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. I hope we will see him at this year’s WrestleMania too. Here’s a video of all his WrestleMania victims
I left some other great streaks like Bob Backlund (about 2135 days ), Honkey Tonk Man (454 days as Intercontinental Champion), Demolition (478 days as Tag Team Champion), Batista (282 days as Heavyweight Champion) etc. John Cena was WWE Champion for 380 days and now CM Punk is on his way to glory, but they still have a long way to go. Records are made to be broken but some of them are very difficult. The above listed reigns are hard to achieve and I guess no one can break those records.
