18 unique performers competed in a match on the main card of Hell in a Cell 2018.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at which performers have currently wrestled on the most consecutive pay-per-view (PPV) events as of September 2018. The only rules are that the superstar must have wrestled for more than zero seconds on the main card of the PPV (sorry, pre-show fans), and brand-exclusive events will not be counted against roster members of the alternative brand. The Greatest Royal Rumble event was omitted from this exercise.
- 31 events - AJ Styles
- 16 events - Seth Rollins
- 13 events - Braun Strowman
- 9 events - Roman Reigns
- 7 events - Alexa Bliss
- 6 events - Daniel Bryan
- 3 events - Jeff Hardy, Dolph Ziggler
- 2 events - Rousey, Joe, Becky, Charlotte, Miz
- 1 event - Maryse, Brie, Orton, Ambrose, McIntyre
And here are the streaks that ended at Hell in a Cell.
- 14 events - Shinsuke Nakamura
- 8 events - Kevin Owens
- 4 events - Carmella
- 3 events - Finn Balor
- 2 events - Corbin, Harper, Rowan
- 1 event - Lesnar, Big E, Woods
Shinsuke Nakamura joined the main roster in April 2017, two nights after WrestleMania 33. His first PPV match came the following month against Dolph Ziggler at Backlash 2017. Nakamura wrestled on every PPV he was eligible for since then, until now. After failing to win the WWE Championship on so many prior PPVs, Nakamura finally won a mid-card title at Extreme Rules 2018, and now he finds himself falling off PPV just two months later. Funny how that works, huh?
As for Kevin Owens, his lengthy PPV streak was broken last year at Survivor Series when his match took place on the pre-show instead of the main card. Therefore Hell in a Cell 2018 is now the only PPV during KO’s main roster run that he was eligible for but did not wrestle on either the main card or pre-show.
With those two superstars and Carmella falling off this list at Hell in a Cell 2018, there are only 6 remaining superstars with active streaks of greater than three events.
What do you think about this list of active streaks, Cagesiders? Which wrestler is most likely to fall off the list next month?
