Double history has been made! I think it would be a heck of an understatement to say that it can be difficult to keep track of a lot of wrestling history. Between the less than honest nature of wrestling in general, the incredibly long and detailed history and how there is little in the way of structure, records can be a bit confusing. Now we have some officially confirmed wrestling records.
Guinness World Records has officially confirmed two WWE records, both of which took place at Survivor Series. First, Randy Orton broke Kane’s record for the most WWE pay per view matches at 177. Second, Natalya set a record for the most pay per view matches by a woman in WWE history, though there was no word on who held the record before her. WWE acknowledged Orton’s record on last week’s edition of Monday Night Raw.
It was a big night. Check out the two in action at Survivor Series, plus some other WWE records:
Opinion: I know it might not exactly be the most thrilling record to set and there is a good chance that Natalya already held the record before Survivor Series, but it is nice to see WWE get some recognition. This is the kind of record that could stand for a long time and I’m not sure I can buy anyone having a real chance to catch Orton for a long time. It’s cool to see something like this and Orton and Natalya deserve the honors.
