Stat Pack Vol 8

Welcome everybody to Stat Pack volume 8! I can’t believe we’re 8 stat packs in already. In this stat pack you’ll find all the statistics, facts and figures from the first 40 WWE PPVs all the way from the original Wrestlemania to Summerslam 94. You’ll find out who has the best and worst win records, who’s been putting on the best matches and who’s wrestled the most. All that and much much more coming up.

Since the last stat pack, Yokozuna has lost his World Heavyweight title to Bret Hart. That was at Wrestlemania X. Yokozuna had a good reign though, beating the likes of Undertaker and Lex Luger en route. Shawn Michaels is no longer Intercontinental champion as he was stripped of the belt. Razor Ramon won the gold and although he lost the belt to Diesel, he would go on to win the title back at Summerslam 94. The Steiner Brothers were tag team champions when the last stat pack went out but they lost the gold to The Quebecers who in turn lost the belt to The Headshrinkers who dropped the belts to the current champions Shawn Michaels and Diesel.

The Steiner Brothers are now gone from the WWF as are Ludvid Borga and Giant Gonzalez. Since then we’ve had debuts for the likes of Alundra Blayze, Bull Nakano and Men On A Mission.

Year Ranking

1. *1994 (57.25)
2. 1992 (52.8)
3. 1993 (51.5)
4. 1990 (50.75)
5. 1989 (50.5)
6. 1991 (49.8)
7. 1987 (47)
8. 1988 (46)
9. 1985 (40.5)
10. 1986 (39.5)

Since the last stat pack we’ve had some big changes to the top 10. The highest new entry is the newest pay per view reviewed, Summerslam 94. With classic matches like Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart it very nearly made the top spot but instead it settles for second. Survivor Series 93, Royal Rumble 94 and King Of The Ring 94 also make it into the top 10 which goes to show that match quality is improving from show to show. The lowest new entry is Wrestlemania 10 which enters the list at joint 13th. With Wrestlemania being the showcase of the year you would expect it to be higher. 1993 on the whole was a decent year and just sits below 1992 on the yearly ratings. Sitting atop the list is 1994, which although isn’t complete, only has Survivor Series yet to be reviewed and is far and away the best overall year so far.

Most PPVs Wrestled On

1. Bret Hart (33)
2= Hulk Hogan (27)
2= Shawn Michaels (27)
4. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (25)
5. Tito Santana (24)
6. “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase (23)
7. Jacques Rougeau/The Mountie (22)
8= Hercules (21)
8= Jake “The Snake” Roberts (21)

We just have a top 9 for this list because there are a few just outside of the list. Bret Hart stays top as he wrestled on every pay per view since the last stat pack. Hogan keeps his second place but he now shares it with Shawn Michaels who wrestled on Survivor Series 93, Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania. Randy Savage jumps up from sixth to fourth after wrestling on three pay per views. Jacques Rougeau is the only new entry to this list, although  he has been on this one before. He also wrestled on three of the newly reviewed shows. Tito Santana, Ted Dibiase, Hercules and Jake Roberts stay on this list despite not wrestling on any of the five newest shows (or more in some cases). Everybody on this list has wrestled on at least 50% of the pay per view so far and I have a feeling this list will be the last one to have that statistic.

Most Pay Per View Matches

1. Bret Hart (38)
2. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (31)
3. Hulk Hogan (29)
4. Shawn Michaels (28)
5. Tito Santana (27)
6. “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase (26)
7= Jacques Rougeau/The Mountie (23)
7= Hercules (23)
9= Jake “The Snake” Roberts (21)
9= Greg “The Hammer” Valentine/The Blue Knight (21)
9= “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan (21)
9= Rick Martel (21)

What we have here is a top 12. Bret Hart keeps his top spot having wrestled in 7 matches on the last five pay per views. He pulled double duty at Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania. Randy Savage leapfrogs Hulk Hogan into second place after his last three matches. Shawn Michaels jumped from sixth to fourth after wrestling three matches of his own. Jacques Rougeau jumps up from 10th to 7th and shares that privilege with Hercules. Greg Valentine re-enters this list at the bottom alongside Rick Martel. Barry Darsow is the only man to fall off this list. Again this list features guys that have wrestled 21 or matches on 40 pay per views.

Highest Win Percentage (2 or more matches)

1= Alundra Blayze 100% (2 matches)
1= Mr T 100% (2 matches)
1= The Jumping Bomb Angels 100% (2 matches)
4. Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat 80% (10 matches)
5. Ultimate Warrior 75% (16 matches)
6. Hulk Hogan 72% (29 matches)
7= Tatanka 66.6% (12 matches)
7= The Steiner Brothers 66.6% (6 matches)
7= The Smoking Gunns 66.6% (3 matches)
7= Mo 66.6% (3 matches)
7= Tama 66.6% (3 matches)

Alundra Blayze enters this list right in the top spot after defeating Leilani Kai and Bull Nakano. She takes the spot once held by The Stieners and Smoking Gunns, both of which drop down to joint seventh. Ricky Steamboat and Ultimate Warrior keep their spots whilst Hulk Hogan jumps up from 9th to 6th without even wrestling. He leapfrogs both Tatanka and Lex Luger. Tatankas losses in the Royal Rumble and to Owen Hart mean that he drops a spot from 6th to 7th. Tama re-enters this list at the bottom whilst Men On A Missions Mo arrives on this list for the first time following victories at Survivor Series and Wrestlemania.

Most Wins

1. Hulk Hogan (21)
2. Bret Hart (19)
3. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (18)
4. Ultimate Warrior (12)
5= British Bulldog (10)
5= Earthquake (10)
7= The Undertaker (9)
7= “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan (9)
7= “Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase (9)

This list has a top 9 instead of 10. Hulk Hogan stays top of this list, I’m not sure he’s ever dropped from that spot. Bret Hart has leapfrogged Randy Savage into third place following wins at Survivor Series, Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania and Summerslam. Ultimate Warrior stays in 4th and British Bulldog now shares his 5th spot with Earthquake after the big man returned and won at Wrestlemania 10. Undertaker climbs two spots from 9th to 7th joining Ted Dibiase and Jim Duggan with 9 victories. Big Boss Man and Ricky Steamboat drop off this list with 8 wins not quite being enough anymore.

Most Draws

1. Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake (3)
2= Bad News Brown (2)
2= Don Muraco (2)
2= “Mr Wonderful” Paul Orndorff (2)

Again this list stays the same. It has looked like this for a long long time now. There were no draws in the last five pay per views.

Most Losses

1. Tito Santana (22)
2. Shawn Michaels (20)
3= Hercules (19)
3= Bret Hart (19)
5. Greg Valentine/The Blue Knight (17)
6= “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase (16)
6= Rick Martel (16)
8= Jacques Rougeau/The Mountie (15)
8= Marty Jannetty (15)
10= Jake “The Snake” Roberts (14)
10= Barry Darsow (Repo Man/Smash) (14)

Well it’s Tito Santana that stays top of this list with his 22 losses. To be fair his losses have stopped now he’s not wrestling anymore but nobody can catch him up yet. Following Shawn Michaels last few losses he goes up to second on this list whilst Bret Harts losses means that he goes joint third with Hercules. Greg Valentine goes up to fifth following losses not only as himself but under a hood as The Blue Knight. Rick Martel is another man that jumps up this list and goes joint sixth with Ted Dibiase. Jacques Rougeaus is a new entry to this list and he goes straight in at number 8, joint with Marty Jannetty. Jake Roberts and Barry Darsow just about stay on this list.

Highest Loss Percentage (minimum 2 matches)

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

Just a top 8 for this. The likes of Adam Bomb, Kamala, Sam Houston and Judy Martin just missed this list with 3 losses out of 3 for them. Besides that, this list looks pretty much the same as before. Leilani Kai was the only one to wrestle from this list and she lost to Alundra Blayze at Wrestlemania 10. That puts her up to joint 6th.

Most Main Events

1. Hulk Hogan (20)
2. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (10)
3. Bret Hart (8)
4= Yokozuna (7)
4= The Ultimate Warrior (7)
6. The Undertaker (5)
7= Andre The Giant (4)
7= Sgt Slaughter (4)
7= “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase (4)

Well it now takes 4 main events to get on this list which means its bye bye to Shawn Michaels and Paul Orndorff for the time being. Hogan and Savage stay top of this list but Bret Hart gains on the top two as he leapfrogs Ultimate Warrior into the top 3. Yokozuna goes from joint 5th to joint 4th equal with Ultimate Warrior with 7 main events a piece. The Undertaker is a new entrant and he goes straight in at 6th after main eventing against the likes of Yokozuna and erm The Undertaker.

Top Rated Matches

1. Ultimate Warrior vs. Randy Savage – Wrestlemania VII (9/10)
2=  Randy Savage vs. Ricky Steamboat – Wrestlemania III (8.5/10)
2= Razor Ramon vs. Shawn Michaels – Wrestlemania X (8.5/10)
2= The 1992 Royal Rumble Match (8.5/10)
5= Randy Savage vs. The Ultimate Warrior – Summerslam 92 (8.25/10)
5= Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart – Wrestlemania X (8.25/10)
7= Hulk Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior – Wrestlemania VI (8/10)
7= Mr Perfect vs. Bret “Hitman Hart” – Summerslam 1991 (8/10)
7= Bret Hart vs. “Rowdy” Roddy Piper – Wrestlemania VIII (8/10)
7= Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart – Summerslam 94 (8/10)
7= The 1990 Royal Rumble Match (8/10)

To get on this list it now means a match rating of 8 out of 10 or above. And that’s exactly what three matches did this time round. Razor Ramon vs. Shawn Michaels in the classic ladder match at Wrestlemania 10 is the highest new entry in joint second. Both of the Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart matches enter the list at numbers 5 and 7 respectively showing just how good a match those two guys have. A few matches drop of the list because of the increasing quality that we see.

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)

For the third stat pack in a row this list stays exactly the same. For those interested, the worst rated match on the last five pay per views was Randy Savage vs. Crush at Wrestlemania X which got a 3.5/10 rating.

Tag Teams With Highest Win Percentage (minimum 2 matches) 

1. Natural Disasters 100% (4 matches)
2. The Steiner Brothers 100% (3 matches)
3= Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff 100% (2 matches)
3= The Brain Busters 100% (2 matches)
5. The Legion Of Doom 83% (6 matches)
6. The Nasty Boys 66.6% (3 matches)
7. Demolition 60% (5 matches)
8. The Hart Foundation 50% (6 matches)
9= The Bushwhackers 50% (4 matches)
9= The Headshrinkers 50% (4 matches)

There is only one small change to this list and that is that The Headshrinkers replace The British Bulldogs. The Headshrinkers defeated Crush and Yokozuna at King Of The Ring 93 which has helped their cause a lot. Like I said, everyone else stays the same.

Tag Teams With Highest Loss Percentage

1= Strike Force 100% (2 matches)
1= The Bolsheviks 100% (2 matches)
3= Money Inc 66.6% (3 matches)
3= Power & Glory 66.6% (3 matches)
3= The Beverley Brothers 66.6% (3 matches)
3= The Dream Team 66.6% (3 matches)
7. The Fabulous Rougeaus 60% (5 matches)
8. The Orient Express 60% (5 matches)
9. The Rockers 57% (7 matches)

This list is another that stays exactly the same. Tag team matches on pay per view seem to be dwindling now with only one per show. These tag team lists are based completely on two vs two tag team matches, almost like a league table of tag teams. As we stand, Diesel and Shawn Michaels are the tag team champions so it’ll be interesting to see if we get those guys on either of these lists.

Highest Average Match Rating (2 or more matches)

1. Adam Bomb (7.5)
2. Diesel (7.18)
3. Ric Flair (7.14)
4. Sid (6.5)
5. Tony Atlas/Saba Simba (6.5)
6. Terry Taylor (6.37)
7. Hulk Hogan (6.34)
8. Lex Luger (6.25)
9. “Rowdy” Roddy Piper (6.229)
10. Owen Hart (6.227)

Well this list looks fairly similar to the last stat pack but the bar has been raised. To get into the top ten this time it takes a minimum of a 6.227 rating and last time it just took a 6.09 rating. Adam Bomb is a new entry at #1 following matches at Survivor Series and Royal Rumble. Diesel is also a new entrant in at number 2. His matches include singles contests against the likes of Bret Hart and Razor Ramon. The next few are the same as before all the way down to Lex Luger who stays at 8th but Roddy Piper falls down from 7th to 9th after his match with Jerry Lawler. Owen Hart is a new entrant in at number 10 after some classic matches with his brother Bret. Ultimate Warrior, Ron Bass and Randy Savage fall off this list.

Lowest Average Match Rating (2 or more matches)

1. Corporal Kirchner (2.5)
2. Adrian Adonis (2.85)
3= Velvet McIntyre (3)
3= The Fabulous Moolah (3)
5. Rockin Robin (3.5)
6. Judy Martin (3.58)
7. Tama (3.66)
8. Leilani Kai (3.75)
9. Nailz (3.75)
10. Billy Jack Haynes (3.75)

The ten on this list are exactly the same as last time with the only different being Leilani Kai going from joint 6th to 8th. That follows her match with Alundra Blayze at Wrestlemania 10. Everyone else on the list stays exactly as they were as none of them have wrestled!

Bastions Top Ten

1. Hulk Hogan (15331)
2. Bret Hart (12328)
3. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (11988)
4. Ultimate Warrior (8060)
5. Earthquake (5750)
6. British Bulldog (5686)
7. “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase (5497)
8. The Undertaker (5262)
9. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan (4953)
10. Razor Ramon (4463)

Hulk Hogan stays top of this list unsurprisingly but Bret Hart has gained some points on his, leapfrogging Randy Savage along the way. He looks like the only one who could catch Hogan at this point. The points score you see is a complex formula based on matches wrestled, matches won, match ratings and main events. Earthquake has jumped up from 7th to 5th following his victory over Adam Bomb at Wrestlemania X. There are two new entrants on this list with Undertaker as the highest new entrant at #8 and Razor Ramon who joins at #10. Shawn Michaels and Ricky Steamboat are the two casualties and they drop off.

Top 10 Title Reigns

1. Hulk Hogan – 1st World Heavyweight Title Reign
2. Shawn Michaels – 1st Intercontinental Title Reign
3. Demolition – 1st Tag Team Title Reign
4. Razor Ramon – 1st Intercontinental Title Reign
5. Bret Hart – 1st World Heavyweight Title Reign
6. Alundra Blayze – 1st Womens Title Reign
7. Bret Hart – 2nd World Heavyweight Title Reign
8. Yokozuna – 2nd World Heavyweight Title Reign
9. The Legion Of Doom – 1st Tag Team Title Reign
10. Randy Savage – 2nd World Heavyweight Title Reign

Well we do have a few changes to this list. The top three stay exactly the same. It’ll take a good title reign to beat Hulk Hogans first World title reign. The highest new entrant is Razor Ramon who’s first Intercontinental title reign goes in at number four. That drops Bret Harts first world title reign down to 5th. Alundra Blayze then goes in at number 6 after defending her womens title against the likes of Leilani Kai and Bull Nakano. Bret Hart is the only man to appear on this list twice and his second World title reign goes straight in at number 7. Yokozunas second World title reign also enters the list and goes in at number 8. Legion of Doom and Randy Savage drop down to 9th and 10th as a result.

Highest Manager Success Rate (2 or more matches)

1. Miss Elizabeth 77.7% (18 matches)
2. Paul Bearer 75% (12 matches)
3. Diesel 66.6% (3 matches)
4. Sensational Sherri 50% (12 matches)
5. Frenchy Martin 50% (6 matches)
6= Oscar 50% (4 matches)
6= Captain Lou Albano 50% (4 matches)
8= “Superstar” Billy Graham 50% (2 matches)
8= The Fabulous Moolah 50% (2 matches)
8= “Classy” Freddie Blassie 50% (2 matches)
8= Mr Perfect 50% (2 matches)

Miss Elizabeth has taken the top spot back after Diesel and Paul Bearer managed their clients to losses. The only other change to this list is the arrival of Oscar who so far has a 50% win percentage with his tag team Men On A Mission.

Highest Manager Loss Rate (2 or more matches)

1. Luna 100% (5 matches)
2= “Cowboy” Bob Orton 100% (2 matches)
2= Kim Chee 100% (2 matches)
2= Oliver Humperdink 100% (2 matches)
5. Harvey Wippleman 91% (11 matches)
6. General Adnan 80% (5 matches)
7. Johnny Polo 66.6% (3 matches)
8. Afa 66.6% (3 matches)
9. Jimmy Hart 65% (64 matches)
10. Bobby Heenan 64% (37 matches)

Luna goes straight to the top of this list after managing Bam Bam Bigelow and Bull Nakano to consecutive losses. Maybe she should stick to in ring action. Harvey Wipplemans record gets worse and he goes from 6th to 5th. Afa also gets worse and he raises from 9th to 8th whilst Johnny Polo is a new entrant in at number 7.
