25 unique performers competed in a match on the main card of SummerSlam 2021.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at which performers have currently wrestled on the most consecutive pay-per-view (PPV) events at the conclusion of August 2021. 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 typical 24/7 title shenanigans will be ignored.
Here are the active streaks coming out of this pay-per-view:
- 12 events - Drew McIntyre
- 5 events - Bobby Lashley, Rhea Ripley
- 4 events - Charlotte Flair
- 3 events - Seth Rollins, Alexa Bliss
- 2 events - A.S.H., Styles, Omos, Riddle, Reigns, Edge
- 1 event - Orton, Marie, Priest, Sheamus, The Usos, The Mysterios, Lynch, Belair, Mahal, Goldberg, Cena
And here are the streaks that ended at SummerSlam:
- 2 events - Kevin Owens
- 1 event - Asuka, Morgan, Naomi, Natalya, Tamina, Vega, Erik, Ivar, Kingston, Big E, Morrison, Nakamura, Ricochet
Drew McIntyre has dominated this list for quite some time, but his streak is now in jeopardy. After dropping out of the WWE championship scene by the end of July, he moved on to a match with Jinder Mahal at SummerSlam, and doesn’t have anything brewing for Extreme Rules. Drew is currently overseas on WWE’s European tour and is expected to miss tonight’s go-home episode of Raw, so his chances of being added to the Extreme Rules card are slim.
Then there’s current WWE champion Big E, who did not wrestle on the main card of SummerSlam. He instead fought Baron Corbin in a pre-show match that wasn’t made official until shortly before the event began. Big E won the WWE championship less than one month later. I can’t imagine there are too many wrestlers who have made the leap from pre-show to WWE champion that quickly. Then again, most Money in the Bank winners are probably not left off the main card of the following month’s event.
The last two PPV main cards that Big E has competed on were Money in the Bank (July) and WrestleMania 37 (April), so he’s not someone who has a steady PPV presence over the last several months. We’ll see if that changes now that he has the top title in WWE.
What do you think about this list of active streaks, Cagesiders? Which wrestler is most likely to fall off the list at Extreme Rules?
