10 Wrestlers Who Have Never Lost A Match At WrestleMania

For many years, The Undertaker’s streak was an iconic aspect of WrestleMania, with “The Dead Man” remaining undefeated at the event for 21 straight matches. However, now that that has been broken, fans have to look much harder for those who are truly unbeatable at the WWE’s biggest annual event. Keep in mind all of the following have a 100% win record greater than The Undertaker’s. 

Having looked at those who have never won a match, we will now look at those who always had their hands held high after the second bell for all of their WrestleMania matches and as we shall see, there are far less! 

Honourable Mention: Rick Rude (2-0-1)

A quick mention before we start for Rick Rude, who never lost a ‘Mania match.  

In two victories, he took on Intercontinental champion The Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania 5 and Jimmy Snuka at WrestleMania 6, earning pinfall wins. At WrestleMania 4’s WWF title tournament, he fought Jake Roberts to a 15-minute draw. 

Holding a rap sheet without a loss, we will not count him on this list, however, due to his draw result in 1988.  

Rob Van Dam (4-0)

The most wins without record belongs to Rob Van Dam, who notched up four victories. 

In his first encounter, the ultra-popular Van Dam picked up the Intercontinental title belt from villainous titleholder William Regal. As well as starting RVD’s winning run, the opening match of WrestleMania 18 cemented Regal’s losing streak. Two years later at WrestleMania 20, he and Booker T retained their tag title belts in a four-way tag match. 

In 2006, Rob Van Dam was a participant in the Money in the Bank ladder match. Rather surprisingly, RVD prevailed, beating off competition from more proven stars such as Ric Flair and more standard WWE-image performers like Bobby Lashley. He famously cashed in at ECW One Night Stand 2006 to win the WWE championship. 

To round off his quadruple wins, RVD teamed with ECW originals The Sandman, Tommy Dreamer, and Sabu to beat The New Breed when “The Whole F’n Show” pinned Matt Striker after a five-star frog splash. 

The Legion of Doom (3-0) 

The Legion of Doom stride with determination to the ring.

One of the most popular acts in the company, the newly-arrived Legion of Doom continued to prove dominant at WrestleMania 7 with a one-minute squash win over Power & Glory’s Hercules and Paul Roma. The former Road Warriors won with their famous doomsday device, which hurt Roma (who later refused to take the move).  

After a long drought, the team again appeared at WrestleMania 13 in a Chicago street fight. They fought alongside Ahmed Johnson against The Nation of Domination, securing the win after Hawk pinned Crush. 

The next year, the returning team—rebranded LOD 2000 and accompanied by Sunny—would win the opening tag team battle royal. To earn the number one contendership for the World Tag Team titles, they last eliminated The New Midnight Express. 

Ax (3-0)

As well as the LOD, the WWF’s rip-off equivalent also has an undefeated record. Well, one of them. 

At WrestleMania 4, Demolition made their ‘Mania debut in a tag title challenge against incumbents Strike Force. With the use of manager Mr Fuji’s cane, Ax and Smash won the tag straps from the beloved babyfaces. 

By WrestleMania 5, the duo were still champions as a part of the same title reign, which at the time was the longest in WWE history and would remain as such until 2016. After becoming face with a double turn with The Powers of Pain at the Survivor Series, they defeated The Barbarin, Warlord, and Fuji in a three-on-two handicap tag bout. 

The next year, Ax and Smash took on new champions The Colossal Connection, Haku and Andre The Giant (in the latter’s final WWF match). The face-painted tandem won their third and final tag titles in this encounter. 

Why is only Ax undefeated in Demolition at WrestleMania? Well, at WrestleMania 7, Smash and new recruit Crush lost to Koji Kitao and Genichiru Tenryu. At the same event, as The Legion of Doom were shooting up the card, this was Demolition’s final televised encounter. 

Interesting stat: whilst Ax has a 3-0 record, Crush has a 0-4 one. 

Sable (3-0)

In the late 1990s, there was no woman in the entire wrestling business as popular as Sable. In the 90s, she became the most downloaded woman on America Online according to Wrestling Inc., whilst her April 1999 Playboy front cover is one of the highest-selling issues in the publication’s history and its quickest sell-out. 

A massive media star, she was never a competent wrestler but that did not stop her success. 

Amidst her breakthrough and during her on-air turbulent relationship with husband Marc Mero, she teamed with her partner Mero at WrestleMania XIV to defeat Goldust and Luna Vachon, pinning the latter after hitting the TKO. The more capable Vachon was told she would be fired had she damaged the inexperienced Sable and was only thanked by one person for making the blonde bombshell look better than she was: Owen Hart. 

The next year, Sable defended her Women’s Championship against Tori. The future D-Generation-X satellite member had been stalking Sable for some time beforehand. It was arguably the worst match on an already unexciting card, with Sable hitting the skin-tight catsuit-wearing Tori with the Sable bomb for the victory. 

Despite suing the company and winning over $100 million, Sable returned to the WWE in the early 2000s at WrestleMania 20, teaming with Torrie Wilson to beat Miss Jackie and Stacy Kiebler in a Playboy evening gown match. How far we have come. 

Bianca Belair (3-0) 

Bianca Belair smiles for the crowd.

NXT standout Bianca Belair came onto the main roster on a wave of popularity and promise. At WrestleMania 37, Belair—who was all over promotional material for the event— main-evented the first night, challenging Sasha Banks for the SmackDown Women’s title. Pinning her after a K.O.D, her first main roster title win was only slightly tempered by Michael Cole’s shouts on commentary that “The Boss” had kicked out when she did no such thing. 

After losing her belt in short order to a returning Becky Lynch at SummerSlam, WrestleMania 38 marked Belair’s opportunity for revenge. In a near-20-minute stormer, Belair prevailed over “The Man”, in a match of which Bleacher Report remarked: “Everything about it was as close to perfect as you can get.” 

The next year, Belair turned back a formidable title challenge by Asuka. “The Empress of Tomorrow” had won a number one contendership Elimination Chamber match for the chance to challenge for Bianca’s belt. Both capable workers, the match was somewhat overshadowed by the events surrounding it; a five-star Intercontinental three-way and Snoop Dogg’s people’s elbow.  

The loss continued Asuka’s win-less WrestleMania record. 

Mr. T (2-0)

No celebrity has been more vital to wrestling than Mr. T.  

As a part of the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling connection, the WWF attempted to blend their own product with high-profile celebrity names to further commercialise and popularise their brand, with Cyndi Lauper, Muhammad Ali, and Liberace all appearing at the inaugural WrestleMania. 

The A-Team star Mr. T also appeared, alongside Rocky actor Hulk Hogan, as a part of a winning team in the main event, defeating Roddy Piper and Paul Orndorff. 

With there being real-life heat between T and Piper, the two fought in a boxing match at the New York portion of WrestleMania 2. In the fourth round, “The Hot Rod” was disqualified for bodyslamming Mr. T. Described by Piper as “one of my most shameful moments”, Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer ranked it –5 stars whilst fans have given it a 0.99 rating on 

Terry Funk (2-0)

A legendary wrestling icon, Terry Funk had two ‘Mania showdowns, both tag matches but in completely different eras. 

His first was at WrestleMania 2 where he teamed alongside brother Dory Funk Jr., billed as Hoss Funk. In easily the best match of the Los Angeles portion and perhaps of the whole card, the Funk brothers took on the tag team of perennial babyfaces Tito Santana and The Junkyard Dog.  

An entertaining slog, the bout featured a near-unprecedented table bump on behalf of Terry before he was able to pin JYD after thumping him with manager Jimmy Hart’s megaphone.  

12 years later, Funk teamed with Cactus Jack to take on The New Age Outlaws in a dumpster match. It was set up after an incident on Raw where tag champions Billy Gunn and Road Dogg shoved a dumpster containing both men off a ramp and hospitalising them in an angle portrayed as deadly serious.  

The hardcore duo won the match to win the World Tag Team title. However, the next night, due to controversy over the wrong dumpster, the belts were held up and later won back by The Outlaws on the same night the new D-Generation-X was established. 

Virgil (2-0)

A rather surprising addition to the list, Virgil was never what you would call a jobber but he was certainly a few rungs below the top stars. 

At WrestleMania 7, Virgil challenged former master Ted DiBiase for his Million Dollar championship. He won by count-out after “The Million Dollar Man” was distracted by brawling with Virgil’s new mentor, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. The duo had a more memorable match at SummerSlam where Virgil picked up the title belt. 

The next year, having dropped the belt, Virgil was part of an eight-man tag match in which his team was victorious. Virgil, The Big Boss Man, Jim Duggan, and Sgt Slaughter defeated The Nasty Boys, The Mountie, and Repo Man when Virgil pinned Knobbs after a miscue. 

Chyna (2-0)

“The Ninth Wonder of the World” Chyna was the single biggest woman in wrestling at the turn of the century. A crossover star for her unique feat of wrestling men, she is also undefeated at the WWE’s flagship show. 

At WrestleMania 2000, she bizarrely teamed with hip-hop dancing duo Too Cool when taking on the recently debuted Radicalz. In the match, Chyna pinned Eddie Guerrero after a sleeper slam amid an ongoing storyline where Guerrero was hoping to win her affection. The next night, Chyna helped Guerrero win the Intercontinental title, kicking off a memorable storyline relationship. 

The next year, she wrestled a rare woman-on-woman match, taking on Ivory. Chyna had long fought The Right To Censor, who had kayfabe broken her neck shortly before WrestleMania. In a one-sided squash, Chyna pried away the Women’s title, pinning her scrappy opponent after a forceful powerbomb and a further military press drop. 

Despite being one of the company’s biggest stars—regardless of gender—Chyna was gone long before WrestleMania X8 amidst the fallout of her relationship with Triple H ending. 

AJ Lee (2-0)

In an otherwise dark time for women’s wrestling, the Divas division was propped up by AJ Lee. 

At WrestleMania 30, Lee retained her belt in the Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational. In the only time the title was ever defended at WrestleMania, Lee knocked off all the other 13 women in the bout, submitting Naomi in the black widow after forcing her hand onto the mat a number of times.  

Having defeated pretty much the entire female roster, there was little place to go beyond that, with Lee dropping her belt the next night to debuting NXT star Paige. 

The next year, Lee teamed with enemy-turned-ally Paige to battle against The Bella Twins. AJ’s team were victorious, with Lee submitting the Divas champion Nikki Bella with the black widow. 

Ironically enough, while 2-0 in matches, AJ’s contribution at WrestleMania 28 saw her kiss Daniel Bryan, costing him his World Heavyweight title match, in which he was beaten in 18 seconds.
