It’s a nice list to top. There are all kinds of wrestling shows on television today and some of them are some rather long events every single week. WWE has three nationally televisions shows every week, plus other shows on top of those. Throw in a few weeks of live events before the Coronavirus pandemic broke and there were all kinds of events this year. One wrestler did something more than any other.
The WWE women’s divisions came a long way in 2020 with Becky Lynch continuing her rise before handing the reins off due to going on maternity leave. This opened the door for some other wrestlers, with Asuka taking the helm on Monday Night Raw. The second half of the year was a great time for Asuka, who wound up doing something that no one else in WWE did all year.
According to Reddit user OMGitzjay28, Asuka topped the list of most matches wrestled for WWE in 2020, with 64 matches. This makes her the first woman to ever wrestle the most matches in a WWE year. Asuka wrestled on both Monday Night Raw, SmackDown and pay per views, plus live events before the pandemic began. The list also includes NXT matches. Here is the top ten:
1. Asuka – 64 matches
2. Angel Garza – 58 matches
3. Ricochet – 55 matches
4. Drew McIntyre – 54 matches
5. Seth Rollins – 53 matches
6./7./8. Bayley, Bobby Lashley and The Miz – 52 matches
9. Keith Lee – 51 matches
10. King Corbin – 49 matches
Asuka had a big year. Check out what she did in 2020:
Opinion: That’s a pretty cool accomplishment for Asuka and it isn’t even that big of a surprise. For someone as good as she is, it is all the more impressive to find someone who is around as often as Asuka. She is as consistent as it gets on the roster and hopefully we get to see quite a bit more of her as the new year begins. Just getting to be the first woman to top such a list is another milestone on an already great resume.
