Year Ranking

2= *1995 (52.8)
2= 1992 (52.8)
3. 1993 (51.5)

8. 1987 (47)
9. 1988 (46)
10. 1985 (40.5)
11. 1986 (39.5)

Well here we have it folks, the first 50 WWE PPVs reviewed and ranked for your own reading pleasure. Not a list ordered as you would expect at all. We have five new entries to the list, the highest being Survivor Series 95 straight in at number 5 and the lowest entry being In Your House 4 which is all the way down at number 44. In Your House 3 is also good enough to feature in the top 10 mainly down to matches like Razor Ramon vs. Dean Douglas and the tag team main event. The most recent pay per views have actually bought the year 1995 up to joint second making it a strong year overall. There is one more pay per view to review in 1995 so it'll be interesting to see if they solidifies 1995 as the second best year overall or whether it means a drop down the table.



Most PPVs Wrestled On
1. Bret Hart (41)
2. Shawn Michaels (35)
3. Hulk Hogan (27)
4. "Macho Man" Randy Savage (25)
5= British Bulldog (24)
5= Tito Santana (24)
7= "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase (23)
7= The Undertaker (23)
9. Jacques Rougeau/The Mountie (22)
10= Hercules (21)
10= Jake "The Snake" Roberts (21)
10= Rick Martel (21)

The first difference you'll notice to this list from last time is that it is made up of 12 guys instead of 11. There is one new entrant and he goes straight in at joint 5th. He's the man that's been in and out of the WWF ever since the second ever PPV, The British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith. He featured on four of the last five PPVs main eventing two of them. Undertaker is a man who climbs up the list going from joint 10th to joint 7th after wins of the likes of Kama at Summerslam. Bret Hart continues to sit pretty at the top of the list and he's followed by Shawn Michaels, two men who are showing no signs of slowing down just yet.



Most Pay Per View Matches
1. Bret Hart (47)
2. Shawn Michaels (36)
3. "Macho Man" Randy Savage (31)
4. Hulk Hogan (29)
5. Tito Santana (27)
6. "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase (26)
7. British Bulldog (25)
8. The Undertaker (24)
9= Hercules (23)
9= Jacques Rougeau/The Mountie (23)

This top 10 is slightly different to the last list. Whereas on the last one Bret Hart was only top by 6 PPV, on this one he has actually had 11 more matches than Shawn Michaels. The top 6 remain the same on this list as the last stat pack. In at number 7 though is The British Bulldog who has wrestled on exactly half of WWEs PPV up to this point. The Undertaker rises to number 8 whilst Hercules and Jacques Rougeau drop down to number 9, just hanging on. It seems like a long long time since Hercules was on pay per view so it's quite amazing how nobody has overtaken him. I think that's a credit to how underrated he was and how he wrestled a lot more than most care to remember.



Highest Win Percentage (2 or more matches)
1= Goldust 100% (2 matches)
1= The Jumping Bomb Angels 100% (2 matches)
1= Mr T 100% (2 matches)
4. Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat 80% (10 matches)
5. The Ultimate Warrior 75% (16 matches)
6. Hulk Hogan 72% (29 matches)
7. Savio Vega 71% (7 matches)
8. The Steiner Brothers 66% (6 matches)
9= Hunter Hearst Helmsley 66% (3 matches)
9= Tama 66% (3 matches)

This is the most important record of them all, the highest win percentage. The top spot of this list has always been taken up by The Jumping Bomb Angels and Mr T but this time they are joined by Goldust who actually replaces Alundra Blayze. Goldust is a newcomer to the WWE and has recorded back to back PPV victories over Marty Jannetty and Bam Bam Bigelow. Ricky Steamboat, Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan boast awesome win percentages so keep their spots in the top 6. Savio Vega drops down from 6th to 7th whilst The Steiner Brothers rise from 9th to 8th. Hunter Hearst Helmsley is a new entrant in joint 9th joining Tama. Helmsley replaces Razor Ramon who falls from 8th all the way down to 20th following losses to the likes of Dean Douglas.



Most Wins
1. Bret Hart (25)
2. Hulk Hogan (21)
3. "Macho Man" Randy Savage (18)
4= British Bulldog (14)
4= The Undertaker (14)
6= Shawn Michaels (12)
6= Ultimate Warrior (12)
8. Razor Ramon (11)
9. Earthquake (10)
10= "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase (9)
10= "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan (9)
10= Owen Hart (9)
10= Yokozuna (9)

You're very luck because you get a top 13 for this list due to the amount of guys on 9 wins. Amazing that it still only requires 9 wins from 50 PPVs to get on this list. Bret Hart stays on top after wins over Isaac Yankem, Jean-Pierre LaFitte and Diesel. Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage keep their spots in the top 3 whilst The Undertaker is joined by The British Bulldog in fourth place. Shawn Michaels is the highest new entrant going straight in at 6th joint with The Ultimate Warrior who slips down 2 places. Razor Ramon slips down to 8th whilst Earthquake falls to 9th. Owen Hart and Yokozuna are two new entrant joining Jim Duggan and Ted Dibiase in 10th place.



Most Draws
1. Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake (3)
2= Shawn Michaels (2)
2= Bad News Brown (2)
2= Paul Orndorff (2)
2= Don Muraco (2)
Despite the draw between Mabel and Yokozuna at In Your House 4, this list stays exactly the same as on the last stat pack with Brutus Beefcake the draw specialist.



Most Losses
1= Shawn Michaels (22)
1= Tito Santana (22)
3. Bret Hart (21)
4. Hercules (19)
5= Rick Martel (17)
5= Marty Jannetty (17)
7= Greg "The Hammer" Valentine (16)
7= "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase (16)
9. Jacques Rougeau/The Mountie (15)
10= Jake "The Snake" Roberts (14)
10= Barry Darsow (Smash/Repo Man) (14)
10= Mike Rotunda/I.R.S (14)

I decided to make this list a top 12 as opposed to a top 9. The top 4 all stay exactly the same with none of them recording any further losses in the last five events. In fifth place Rick Martel is joined by Marty Jannetty. Jacques Rougeau slips down to 9th whilst in 10th we have Jake Roberts, Barry Darsow and for the first time, Mike Rotunda. You'd think going forward this one will be a two way race between Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels.



Highest Loss Percentage (minimum 2 matches)
1. Koko B. Ware 100% (11 matches)
2. Boris Zhukov 100% (7 matches)
3= Adam Bomb 100% (6 matches)
3= Skinner 100% (6 matches)
5= Ron Bass 100% (5 matches)
5= The Berzerker 100% (5 matches)
7= Ken Patera 100% (4 matches)
7= Leilani Kai 100% (4 matches)
7= Paul Diamond (Kato/Max Moon) 100% (4 matches)

This list stays the same as the last stat pack with all 9 wrestlers losing all of their pay per view matches. It takes a minimum of 4 matches to get on this list so you really have to do something wrong to get on it.



Most Main Events
1. Hulk Hogan (20)
2. Bret Hart (12)
3= "Macho Man" Randy Savage (10)
3= Diesel (10)
5. Yokozuna (9)
6. The Ultimate Warrior (7)
7. The Undertaker (6)
8. Shawn Michaels (5)
9= Bam Bam Bigelow (4)
9= "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase (4)
9= Andre The Giant (4)
9= Sgt Slaughter (4)

Hulk Hogan stays top of this list of course but Bret Hart is slowly catching him up. He's up to 12 now and with the WWF title around his waist I can only see him getting closer to Hulks record. Diesel goes up from 7th to joint 3rd after main eventing the last five PPVs whilst Yokozuna slips down to 5th. Shawn Michaels keeps his 8 spot and Bam Bam, Dibiase, Andre and Slaughter drop down to joint 9th, just hanging on to this list.

Lowest Rated Matches
1= Paul Orndorff vs. Tito Santana – Wrestling Classic (2/10)
1= Fabulous Moolah vs. Velvet McIntyre – Wrestlemania II (2/10)
1= Uncle Elmer vs. Adrian Adonis – Wrestlemania II (2/10)
1= Corporal Kirchner vs. Nikolai Volkoff – Wrestlemania II (2/10)
1= Tony Garea vs. Ted Arcidi – The Big Event (2/10)
1= Haku vs. Don Muraco – The Big Event (2/10)
1= Adrian Adonis vs. Junkyard Dog – The Big Event (2/10)
1= Jake Roberts vs. Andre The Giant – Wrestlemania V (2/10)
1= Demolition vs. Tenryu & Kitao - Wrestlemania VII (2/10)

The lowest rated match stay exactly the same with Mabel and Yokozuna's terrible match being the closest to making it onto this list. In terms of the highest rated matches there are a couple of new entries with the epic ladder match at Summerslam between Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon being the highest new entrant. The wildcard match between Shawn Michaels, British Bulldog, Ahmed Johnson, Sid and Razor Ramon, Dean Douglas, Yokozuna and Owen Hart also making it into the top 10.



Tag Teams With Highest Win Percentage
1. The Natural Disasters 100% (4 matches)
2. The Steiner Brothers 100% (3 matches)
3= Men On A Mission 100% (2 matches)
3= The Brain Busters 100% (2 matches)
3= The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff 100% (2 matches)
6. The Legion Of Doom 83.3% (6 matches)
7. Owen Hart & Yokozuna 75% (4 matches)
8. The Nasty Boys 66.6% (3 matches)
9. Demolition 60% (5 matches)
10. The British Bulldogs 50% (2 matches)

There's only one new entry to this list and it's Mabel and Mo, Men On A Mission. They're recorded wins over The Quebecers and Razor Ramon & Savio Vega. This knocks The Hart Foundation off the list. The British Bulldogs are prioritised over other teams because they have won one and drawn one match on pay per view. The rest all stays the same.



Tag Teams With Highest Loss Percentage
1= Strike Force 100% (2 matches)
1= The Blu Brothers 100% (2 matches)
1= The Bolsheviks 100% (2 matches)
4= Money Inc 66% (3 matches)
4= The Dream Team 66% (3 matches)
4= Power & Glory 66% (3 matches)
4= The Beverly Brothers 66% (3 matches)
8. The Orient Express 60% (5 matches)
9. The Fabulous Rougeaus 60% (5 matches)
10. The Rockers 57% (7 matches)

There's one major change to this list and it's The Smoking Gunns, who picked up wins over Razor Ramon and The 123 Kid and The Smoking Gunns dropping off the list and being replaced by The Blu Brothers who's loss to The Smoking Gunns puts them at the top of the shop. None of the other teams change as none of them have wrestled!



Highest Average Match Rating (2 or more matches)
1. Ric Flair (7.1)
2= Hakushi (6.75)
2= Kwang (6.75)
4. Dean Douglas (6.6)
5. Diesel (6.57)
6. Tony Atlas/Saba Simba (6.5)
7= Sid (6.375)
7= Terry Taylor/The Red Rooster (6.375)
7= Sione (6.375)
10. Hulk Hogan (6.34)

This list is an interesting one and features a lot of guys you would not expect to be on it. I think guys like Tony Atlas are only on it because I'm sure a Royal Rumble mark. Ric Flair remains top of the list which could come as no surprise to most. Newcomer Hakushi is a new entrant to the list and goes straight in at number 2 after good performances at Summerslam and Survivor Series. Dean Douglas is the second highest new entry, in at number 4 after decent showings against Razor Ramon. Diesel drops down from 2nd to 5th but is still in a good spot. Adam Bomb and Roddy Piper are the two casualties, dropping off the list.



Lowest Average Match Rating (2 or more matches)
1. Corporal Kirchner (2.5)
2. Adrian Adonis (2.85)
3= The Fabulous Moolah (3)
3= Velvet McIntyre (3)
5. Rockin' Robin (3.5)
6. Judy Martin (3.58)
7. Tama (3.66)
8= Leilani Kai (3.75)
8= Billy Jack Haynes (3.75)
8= Nailz (3.75)

There are no changes to this list due to none of the top ten being in action in the last 5 PPVs and match quality being a lot better than it used to be. Nailz is the newest entry to this list and he hasn't wrestled for 3 years. Half of this list are actually women, showing how bad the quality used to be in the late 80's/early 90's.



Bastions Top 10
1. Bret Hart (16023)
2. Hulk Hogan (15331)
3. "Macho Man" Randy Savage (11988)
4. British Bulldog (8098)
5. The Undertaker (8081)
6. The Ultimate Warrior (8060)
7. Shawn Michaels (7950)
8. Razor Ramon (7114)
9. Yokozuna (6012)
10= Owen Hart (5750)
10= Earthquake (5750)

This list is made up of a complicated formula of matches won, average match rating, main events and total matches. There are some big changes to this list after 5 big WWE PPVs. Most notable is Bret Hart who now sits to of this one, leapfrogging Hulk Hogan. Randy Savage hangs on to the third spot but Ultimate Warrior, who was 4th, has been overtaken by both British Bulldog and The Undertaker. Shawn Michaels is the highest new entry, going straight in at number 7. Razor Ramon drops down to 8th, Yokozuna rises to 9th and Earthquake drops down to 10th, joint with new entry Owen Hart.



Top 10 Title Reigns
1. Diesel - 1st World Heavyweight Title Reign
2. Hulk Hogan - 1st World Heavyweight Title Reign
3. Yokozuna - 2nd World Heavyweight Title Reign
4. Shawn Michaels - 1st Intercontinental Title Reign
5. Demolition - 1st Tag Team Title Reign
6. Alundra Blayze - 1st Women's Title Reign
7. Razor Ramon - 1st Intercontinental Title Reign
8. Owen Hart & Yokozuna - 1st Tag Team Title Reign
9. Bret Hart - 1st World Heavyweight Title Reign
10. Shawn Michaels - 3rd Intercontinental Title Reign

Well we have a new number one on this list and its Diesel who's year long reign as World Heavyweight champion is enough to put him at the top. He's defeated the likes of Shawn Michaels, Mabel, The British Bulldog and Sid along the way and it means Hulk hogans first World title reign drops down to second. The next five reigns are exactly the same as before but new in at number 8 is Owen Hart and Yokozunas tag team title reign. The other new entry is Shawn Michaels third Intercontinental title reign. He defeated Jeff Jarrett for that gold and successfully defended it against Razor Ramon and in tag team action.



Most Matches Managed
1. Jimmy Hart (64)
2. Mr Fuji (39)
3. Bobby Heenan (37)
4. Slick (23)
5= Miss Elizabeth (18)
5= Paul Bearer (18)
7. "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase (17)
8. Jim Cornette (16)
9. Harvey Wippleman (13)
10. Sensational Sherri (12)

This is the only new list that I've added to this stat pack. Jimmy Hart is miles ahead of the number two spot with 64 matches managed. That's pretty unbelievable when you think about it. Fuji is in second with 39 matches managed and he's still going strong. The likes of Paul Bearer, Ted Dibiase, Jim Cornette and Harvey Wippleman are also on this list and still going but I'm not sure they'll ever catch Jimmy Hart.



Highest Manager Success Rate
1= Miss Elizabeth 77.7% (18 matches)
1= Paul Bearer 77.7% (18 matches)
3. Diesel 66.6% (3 matches)
4. Sensational Sherri 50% (12 matches)
5. Mo 50% (6 matches)
6. Frenchy Martin 50% (6 matches)
7= "Superstar" Billy Graham 50% (2 matches)
7= The Fabulous Moolah 50% (2 matches)
7= "Classy" Freddie Blassie 50% (2 matches)
7= Mr Perfect 50% (2 matches)

There are a few changes to this list with Miss Elizabeth once again going top. The man who was top before, Mo, drops down to fifth place after his man Mabel lost a couple of big time matches. Paul Bearer climbs up to joint top with Elizabeth after Undertaker also won a few matches with Bearer in his corner. Diesel and Sensational Sherri both go up one place whilst the rest of the list stays exactly the same.



Highest Manager Loss Percentage
1. Luna 100% (5 matches)
2= Cowboy Bob Orton 100% (2 matches)
2= Kim Chee 100% (2 matches)
2= Oliver Humperdink 100% (2 matches)
2= Sunny 100% (2 matches)
2= Uncle Zeb 100% (2 matches)
7. Harvey Wippleman 84% (13 matches)
8. General Adnan 80% (5 matches)
9. Afa 70% (10 matches)
10= Johnny Polo 66.6% (3 matches)
10= The Roadie 66.6% (3 matches)

And finally, this is the top 11 for managers with the worst record. Luna keeps her spot on top of this list with an awful 5 losses from 5 matches. The two highest new entrants are Sunny and Uncle Zeb who have gone straight in at joint second with 100% loss records from two matches. Ted Dibiase and Jimmy Hart actually go off this list whilst The Roadie joins the bottom.
