The Undertaker’s Streak ending at 21-1 was an earth-shattering moment, one of the most shocking in wrestling history. Not only did it signal the end of an era, it also gave way to some pretty weird statistics. For example: did you know Rob Van Dam now holds the longest undefeated streak at WrestleMania at 4-0?
Even more astonishing: did you know that, as it stands, there are a number of women who are catching him up?
Let’s take a look.
Below is the current list of women with at least one win and zero losses at the show of shows. Only two of the thirteen women listed below are currently active wrestlers, and another five of those are NOT wrestlers to begin with. Godammit, WWE.
Just one victory behind Mr. Monday Night is the wild cat herself, Sable.
Sable’s first ‘Mania victory was in a mixed-tag match with then-husband ‘Marvelous’ Marc Mero against The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust and Luna Vachon. Sable hit Luna with a TKO to get the pin for her team.
Sable’s second win was a year later, at WrestleMania XV, successfully defending the WWE Women’s Championship against Tori (who wore that god-awful tiger/amazon/skinless body suit).
Sable’s third and final WrestleMania Victory came at WrestleMania XX, teaming with Torrie Wilson against Stacy Keibler and Jackie Gayda, in a Playboy Evening Gown Match. The teams started the match in their lingerie, making it less of an Evening Gown Match and more of a Lingerie Match. This is due to Sable reportedly rupturing a breast implant while weightlifting.
Leading the charge for the new generation is Norwich’s own, Paige.
Paige racked up both of her victories in tag team matches; first teaming with AJ Lee at WrestleMania 31 to defeat The Bella Twins, then teaming with Brie Bella, Natalya, Alicia Fox and Eva Marie to take on Lana, Naomi, Tamina, Summer Rae and Emma the following year in Dallas.
While Paige hasn’t scored a fall at ‘Mania, it’s noteworthy to mention that in both of those matches, she was the ironwoman. Paige took a lot of punishment and spent the longest amount of time in the matches, for her team, by far.
Joining (and, most likely, shoving) Paige on the #2 plinth is her tag team partner from WrestleMania 31, AJ Lee.
The aforementioned WrestleMania 31 match was the Geek Godess’ second consecutive victory on the big stage.
AJ holds the distinction of being the only woman to defend the Divas Championship at a WrestleMania event, doing so in the flustercuck that was the ‘Vickie Guerrero Invitational’ at the 30th outing.
Next up is the inaugural RAW Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair.
Charlotte’s victory came at last years WrestleMania 32, in Dallas, in a show-stealing triple-threat match with Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks.
Charlotte is just the second active performer on this list, and looks to build a streak in Orlando.
Why did WWE think non-wrestler Maria Menounos and barely-wrestler Kelly Kelly vs Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix and Eve Torres at WrestleMania was a good idea?
And who thought it a good idea to give said non-wrestler and barely-wrestler the win?
Thanks to this lapse in judgement for the 28th event, a television host is undefeated at WrestleMania.
It goes against my morals to willfully watch a Kelly Kelly match.
Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi
Oh shit, this happened.
Jersey Shore’s Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi joined forces with Trish Stratus and John Morrison to take on the team of LayCool and Dolph Ziggler at WrestleMania XXVII.
To be fair, Polizzi didn’t look like absolute dogshit -but she isn’t a wrestler.
Not sure why this occurred, but there you go.
Guerrero. Wrestling royalty. It doesn’t surprise me to see a Guerrero undefeated at WWE’s marquee event. Wait, what? The Guerrero is…..Vickie?
Vickie was certainly a trooper for WWE, going above and beyond the call of duty to make a compelling character for television (see above).
Vickie’s WrestleMania victory came at ‘Mania XXVI in a ten-woman tag match lasting a paltry 3 minutes 20.
Vickie teamed with Alicia Fox, Maryse and LayCool to defeat Beth Phoenix, Mickie James, Gail Kim, Eve Torres and Kelly Kelly.
Chyna netted her WrestleMania victory in a rare occurrence of a squash match done well in the women’s division.
In the karmic follow-up to their Royal Rumble match and subsequent angle, Chyna dropped Ivory -literally- to claim the WWE Women’s Championship at WrestleMania X-Seven.
Chyna would go on to hold the belt until her exit later in the year, making her one of the few undefeated Women’s Champions.
Terri’s victory came from her “match” against The Kat at WrestleMania 2000.
The “match”, which was a cat fight, saw The Fabulous Moolah in Runnels’ corner, Mae Young supporting The Kat and Val Venis as guest referee. It lasted 2 minutes and 26 seconds.
2000 was not a good year for women’s wrestling.
Hall of Famer and three-time WWE Women’s Champion Alundra Blayze had her only appearance at WrestleMania in 1994, at WrestleMania X.
Blayze successfully defended her Women’s Championship against a returning Leilani Kai.
Blayze easily defeated the veteran Kai, who had lost the championship at the inaugrual WrestleMania to Wendi Richter.
Sapphire, real name Juanita Wright, had only a handful of matches under her belt. Most of which involved ‘Sensational’ Sherri Martel.
Sapphire was primarily Dusty Rhodes’ manager throughout 1989 and 1990.
Her WrestleMania win came in a mixed-tag match where she teamed with The American Dream against ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage and Sherri at WrestleMania VI.
The Fabulous Moolah
The Fabulous Moolah’s one and only WrestleMania Match was against Velvet McIntyre.
WrestleMania II was the event, where Moolah managed to successfully defend the Women’s Championship in the first match in Rosemont, Illinois.
The match was the shortest over all three venues, lasting 1 minute 25 seconds.
Wendi Richter captured her second WWE Women’s Championship at the inaugural WrestleMania event.
Richter regained the title from champion Leilani Kai, who had beaten Richter the previous month at The War to Settle the Score.
The Hall of Famer scored a win over Ivory on the Sunday Night Heat broadcast before WrestleMania XV.
While the stage was set for WrestleMania, this match took place on Heat rather than WrestleMania and, as such, does not count.
*Charlotte did not defend the Divas Championship at WrestleMania 32, the belt was retired at the event. The RAW Women’s Championship was contested for between Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch instead.
