Seth Rollins wins a lot, but someone won more than him in 2019

Just as they did in 2018, WWE’s released an edition of their List This video series running down the top five Superstars with the most televised wins this year (up through TLC on Dec. 15).

Unlike last year, for 2019 they included NXT in their count. That certainly helped the total of a pair of acts which started the year on the black-and-gold brand, but the fourth & third place finishers did a lot of winning on Raw, too.

The other three names are wrestlers who’ve been in the headlines a lot throughout the year. They’ve certainly had some high profile wins, but they’ve also been hot topics due to things like haircuts, being bad at Twitter, and losing to Brock Lesnar in record-time.

5. Bayley - 30
4. Viking Raiders - 32
3. Ricochet - 38
2. Seth Rollins - 39
1. Kofi Kingston - 41

It’s the latest confirmation that Kofi had a remarkable year. Sure, it would be nice if the end of his WWE title reign wasn’t booked as a speed bump on the road to a bad Lesnar/Cain Velasquez match. But 2019 cemented as one of the company’s top stars.

Finishing with more wins than Rollins, the only person to make the top five both this year and last, is proof of that.

If there’s a big surprise here, it might be that Seth’s fiancee didn’t make the list despite having been Raw Women’s champ since April.
