Some takeaways from the year end stats:

  • With 185 matches competed in, if nothing else Jinder Mahal was a fighting champion. Mahal began his year on Raw but finished the year having spent the majority of his time on the top of SmackDown.
  • You expected AJ Styles to make an appearance on the most matches lists but how about Baron Corbin? Corbin spent his first full year on the main roster wrestling night in and night out.
  • Best in the world? Styles is also the only wrestler to appear in the top five in both most matches and most wins categories.
  • Despite their fans often questioning their place in storylines, Dean Ambrose and Shinsuke Nakamura lead the way in the win column; with the Lunatic Fringe holding a 13 win edge on second place.
  • Nobody is ready for Asuka and her perfect winning percentage is still pretty impressive across an entire calendar year.
  • After his NXT run in 2017, is Aleister Black destined for NXT gold in 2018?
  • How did Nia Jax end up on the most losses list?
  • June 5, 2017 where were you when Bo Dallas defeated Curt Hawkins on WWE Main Event episode 244?
