Looking at 19 WWE Records That Were Broken in 2019 (VIDEO)

A video was posted on WWE’s Youtube channel as part of their “WWE List This” series. I don’t normally write about them, but this one was interesting. It’s a video looking at some of the records that were broken this year. Here’s a recap of the 19 records (fitting for 2019) that they came up with.

1. Charlotte Flair passed Trish Stratus to hold the most Women’s Titles in WWE history. Flair won her 8th, 9th and 10th Women’s Titles this year. Stratus had the record with seven Women’s Titles in her career.

2. Bayley became the first woman to hold the Raw Women’s Title, Smackdown Women’s Title and Women’s Tag Team Titles (with Sasha Banks), which means she was the first to complete the Women’s Title Triple Crown. Alexa Bliss did it as well when she won the Women’s Tag Team Titles with Nikki Cross.

3. Seth Rollins won the Universal Title at WrestleMania and SummerSlam. That meant he was the first superstar to win a “World Title” at WrestleMania and SummerSlam in the same year.

4. Kofi Kingston became the first superstar born in the content of Africa to win the WWE Championship when he won the title from Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania.

5. When Dolph Ziggler lost to Kofi Kingston at the Smackville special earlier this year, Ziggler competed in his 10th televised WWE Title match. That’s the most televised opportunities without winning the title. Poor Dolph.

6. Brock Lesnar became the first superstar to win the WWE Title twice on Smackdown when he defeated Kofi Kingston to win the WWE Title in October. The first time Lesnar won the WWE Title on Smackdown was in September 2003. That was an Ironman match against Kurt Angle, which is the best match in Smackdown history in my opinion. Read my review of that 2003 match here. 

7. Kofi Kingston became the first WWE superstar to make it to 1000 days as a Tag Team Champion.

8. Shayna Baszler’s days as NXT Champion set a new record when she passed Asuka’s record of 522 days in November.

9. The first-ever women’s WarGames match took place in November and it was won by a team led by Rhea Ripley.

10. Ronda Rousey held the Raw Women’s Championship from SummerSlam 2018 to WrestleMania 35 for a grand total of 231 days, which broke the record held by Alexa Bliss. That record by Rousey was broken because current Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch now has the longest reign with the Raw Women’s Title. Lynch is at 242 days right now.

11. Becky Lynch won the first-ever women’s main event match at WrestleMania.

12. At Crown Jewel on October 31, Natalya and Lacey Evans became the first female superstars to compete in a match in Saudi Arabia.

13. Seth Rollins became the first superstar to win the Royal Rumble match as the #10 entrant.

14. Liv Morgan broke the record for the shortest time in the women’s Royal Rumble match at just 8 seconds. Poor Liv.

15. Nia Jax became the first superstar to compete in the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble match in the same night.

16. Jeff Jarrett competed in a match on Raw eight days after the Royal Rumble. It was his first match on Raw since September 27, 1999. That’s a record of 19 years, 4 months and 8 days since his last match on Raw. Great stat.

17. Maria Kanellis became the first pregnant champion in WWE history when she was the 24/7 Title. Now that’s a phrase I didn’t expect to write this year!

18. When the “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase bought the 24/7 Title from Madusa to become the 24/7 Champion, it meant there was the longest gap between title reigns in WWE history at 26 years when he was WWE Tag Team Champion with Irwin R. Shyster in 1993.

19. Pat Patterson became the most senior champion in WWE history by winning the 24/7 Title at 78 years old.

That was interesting. I think they picked some pretty good ones. You can check out the video below.

WWE: Could Becky Lynch main event ‘Mania for the second year in a row?

Few would disagree that WWE Superstar Becky Lynch deserves to main event WrestleMania for the second year in a row. Question is does she have the momentum to pull it off? It would be an understatement to say that 2019 belonged to Becky Lynch. In fact, a strong argument can be made to justify calling […]

Ronda Rousey Discusses Returning to the Ring, Current WWE Women’s Roster, More

Ronda Rousey has not been seen in a WWE ring since walking away to start a family after her history-making main event match at this year’s Wrestlemania. Rousey has not announced that she is pregnant, so no baby news to report yet although her husband Travis Browne has two sons from a previous relationship. Rousey recently sat down with People to discuss if she has plans to return to the ring anytime soon.

“I think I need to figure out a different way of doing it. To be able to not have to choose career over family or family over career and kind of find that happy medium.”

“Right now, I think my family needs my undivided attention. I’m happy to give them that. But I’m trying to figure out a way or a system or somehow that I could give both my family and WWE the best of me and not be half ass in both.”

Rousey went on to tell People that she is in no rush to return to the ring because she feels the women’s roster is doing amazing without her.

“The girls are doing amazing right now, I really don’t think that I’m that necessary in what’s going on. I think they’re crushing it and I really did want to bring a spotlight to what they’re doing and let them stand in it.”

Rousey finally went on to explain how she never wants to steal the spotlight or be a hindrance, feeling that the women may be better off without her right now.

“And I think it’s kind of better, they’re better off with me taking a step away right now, and kind of finding their stride without me. And I would love to add to what they’re doing. I don’t want to ever be a hindrance or take away from what they’re doing or steal the spotlight from some up and coming girls that deserve it more than me.”

Matt’s Musings: Very few people made an impact as quickly and strongly in the wrestling world as Ronda Rousey. It is unquestionable that she helped shine a spotlight on the women’s division and helped bring it to levels it’s never reached before. Hopefully, Rousey can find the balance between work and family that she is looking for, as I for one would love to see her back in a WWE ring.
