8 Wrestlers You Won’t Believe Have A Losing Record At WrestleMania Source:

Even though it was infamously ended, The Streak still holds significance simply because of how amazing the feat was. Many legends tried to end it, only to fail. That is, until Brock Lesnar got in The Undertaker’s way at WrestleMania 30. Given how much ending The Streak has elevated Lesnar even further, it’s worth taking a look at other prominent figures and their records at WrestleMania. You have Rob van Dam who has an undefeated 4-0 record, while the annoying Michael Cole is somehow 1-0. But what about famous wrestlers who have more losses than wins under their WrestleMania belts? Today we’ll take a look a look at eight wrestlers in that category—some might even surprise you!

8. Kane (9 Wins, 10 Losses)

Kane has been the cornerstone of WWE for over 20 years now, and despite his gimmick, he has managed to constantly evolve and not end up stale. However, this hasn’t helped his WrestleMania record. Even though he has a respectable seven wins, the Devil’s favorite demon also has nine losses under his belt. It’s understandable, however, considering he’s been a heel for the majority of his WWE career. Kane has also faced the likes of Kurt Angle at Mania, as well as participating in multiple Money in the Bank matches.

Some interesting facts about his record is that two of his losses came against his brother, The Undertaker. Kane has also won gold at WrestleMania, winning the Hardcore championship and ECW title too. His most recent WrestleMania efforts, however, have been meaningless appearances in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Source:

7. Chris Benoit (3 Wins, 5 Losses)

The Rabid Wolverine might be erased from the record books for the tragic and terrible way his life ended, but most fans will still remember Benoit as one of the finest technical wrestlers of all time. This didn’t give him a winning record at WrestleMania, though. Despite winning the Intercontinental and WWE championship, as well as retaining a U.S. championship, Benoit has more losses than wins at the grandest stage of them all.

A notable fact about Benoit’s record is that he faced off against Kurt Angle twice: first in a triple threat which involved Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 16, and then a singles bout at WrestleMania 17. Benoit also had a losing debut at WrestleMania, despite winning the Intercontinental title. This is because in the triple threat match, the first pinfall was for the Intercontinental title (which Benoit won), but the second pinfall was for the European title (which Jericho pinned Angle for). Poor Angle, who walked into WrestleMania with two titles and left with zero. Source:

6. CM Punk (3 Wins, 4 Losses)

The voice of the voiceless isn’t with the WWE anymore, and we’re pretty sure if we tell him what his WrestleMania record is, he just might get angry. That’s not to say that CM Punk has a bad record—it’s pretty decent—but it’s a losing record nonetheless.

The self proclaimed “Best in the World” won two consecutive Money in the Bank matches, having lost one in his WrestleMania debut. Punk also holds a win over Jericho, retaining the WWE championship, but suffered losses against Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton, and most notably, The Undertaker.

None of his WrestleMania matches were ever the “main event,” however, which is one of the reasons Punk decided it was time to leave. Source:

5. Randy Orton (6 Wins, 7 Losses)

The Viper was, at one time, seen as the face of the company. While he’s played second fiddle to John Cena throughout the years, he’s still a highly valued member of the roster. Having main evented three WrestleMania matches, Orton has had privileges very superstars can dream of.

Unfortunately for him, the heel factor comes in and having been a heel longer than a face throughout the course of his career, Orton has suffered more losses than wins at WrestleMania. Of course, he’s still only 37-years-old and could overturn it, seeing as he already has experience in 13 WrestleManias up to this point in his career.

Notably, Orton has faced Triple H twice at WrestleMania and emerged victorious in the main event of WrestleMania 24 in triple threat match which featured John Cena, no less. He also snagged the WWE Championship from Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 33, bringing his win-loss record closer to even. Source:

4. Ric Flair (1 Win, 4 Losses)

Arguably the greatest performer of all time, Ric Flair has done it all in the wrestling business. The current record holder for most heavyweight titles, Flair hung up his boots in 2008 after losing a retirement match against Shawn Michaels.

Unfortunately for the Nature Boy, that loss didn’t only retire him but added to an otherwise surprisingly poor record for the WWE Hall of Famer. Flair lost a Money in the Bank match, suffered defeat to The Undertaker at WrestleMania 18, and lost his WWE title to Randy Savage at WrestleMania 8.

His only win came as part of Evolution, defeating the Rock and Sock connection at WrestleMania 20. Source:

3. Chris Jericho (5 Wins, 9 Losses)

The King of the World is another WWE legend who has a losing record at the Super Bowl of wrestling. This might be a surprise, as despite being a heel longer than a face, Jericho put over quite a few wrestlers before becoming a part-timer, from Christian to Triple H to Chris Benoit. Jericho has also competed in and lost two Money in the Bank contests.

However, Jericho has also retained titles such as the Intercontinental, Tag Team, and WWE title at various WrestleManias. His only title win at a WrestleMania came in that triple threat match which involved Benoit and Angle, as Y2J won the European title for the first time in his WWE career. He most recently dropped the United States Championship to his former best friend Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 33. Source:

2. Triple H (9 Wins, 10 Losses)

This may or may not be surprising to you, but Triple H does indeed, as of WrestleMania 33, have a losing record. Why is this not surprising? The King of Kings has been a heel much longer than he’s been a face. Why is this surprising? Because Triple H is the bosses’ son-in-law, and as the running joke of the smart marks goes, Triple H must always go over.

The Game has faced a variety of different opponents at Mania including The Undertaker, Kane, The Rock, Jericho, Brock Lesnar, Booker T, Shawn Michaels and John Cena. The list goes on, with Triple H beating Sting at WrestleMania 31— a result many would have changed, having it the other way. We would takes losses to Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, respectively, at the next two annual WWE showcases.

An interesting fact about Triple H’s record is that of his 21 WrestleMania matches, three of them have come against The Undertaker, all resulting in losses. Source:

1. Shawn Michaels (6 Wins, 11 Losses)

Shawn Michaels had to be top of this list. Known as Mr. WrestleMania because he always steals the show, he’s had iconic performances against the likes of Bret Hart, The Undertaker, Ric Flair, Stone Cold and more. However, he has a stunning losing record at WrestleMania as well, having lost nearly 65% of these matches. To be fair, two of his matches involved The Undertaker, while he’s also had to put over the likes of Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, and John Cena. Notable wins for Michaels include victories over Chris Jericho and Ric Flair, as well as Bret Hart in the famous Iron Man match at WrestleMania 12.

Regardless of his record, though, Michaels will forever be known as Mr. WrestleMania. Source:
