Year Ranking

1. 1996 (58.8)
2. 1997* (58.2)
3. 1994 (57.8)
4. 1992 (52.8)
5. 1995 (52.37)
6. 1993 (51.5)
7. 1990 (50.75)
8. 1989 (50.5)
9. 1991 (49.8)
10. 1987 (47)
11. 1988 (46)
12. 1985 (40.5)
13. 1986 (39.5)

1997 was such a fantastic year for PPV but only up until the last 5 shows it seems. The last 5 PPVs really aren’t ranked too highly, with In Your House: Ground Zero being the highest new entrant, in at number 18. Survivor Series 97 is then the only other PPV to crack the top 35 which is amazing really when you consider some of the other PPVs from 1997. These poor rankings bring down the overall average of 1997 to 58.2 dropping it below 1996 with one PPV to go. It’s not too late for 1997 to become the best year for PPVs once again with In Your House: Degeneration X still to go.

 Most PPVs Wrestled On

1. Bret Hart (57)
2. Shawn Michaels (51)
3. British Bulldog (48)
4. The Undertaker (45)
5. Owen Hart/The Blue Blazer (40)
6. Jake “The Snake” Roberts (28)
7. Hulk Hogan (27)
8. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (25)
9= Tito Santana (24)
9= Marty Jannetty (24)

Well for the second Stat Pack in a row this list stays exactly the same. Bret Hart wrestled on all five of the PPVs since the last Stat Pack and has cemented his place at the top. But the story now is that Bret has gone. He fought in his last PPV match at Survivor Series and now it is up to the guys below him to catch him up. Owen Hart and British Bulldog fought on all 5 of the last 5 PPVs whilst Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker only wrestled on 4. There are no new additions to this list although I will tell you that Crush is the man closest to getting on it. Tito Santana is the man that is on this list despite not wrestling for the longest period, it’s been nearly 5 years since his last PPV match.

Most PPV Matches

1. Bret Hart (63)
2. Shawn Michaels (52)
3. British Bulldog (49)
4. The Undertaker (47)
5. Owen Hart/The Blue Blazer (43)
6. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (31)
7= Hulk Hogan (29)
7= Jake “The Snake” Roberts (29)
9. Tito Santana (27)
10. “The Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase (26)

This list is another that stays exactly the same as the last Stat Pack. Bret Hart leads the way with 11 more matches than Shawn Michaels who is in second place. Bulldog has doubled his lead over The Undertaker having wrestled two more matches than him now. Owen Hart, much like the previous list, keeps his fifth position with a huge gap between he and sixth. The rest of the list doesn’t change with the same, familiar named propping the list up. With only three members of this list on the current roster, it means there could be a lot of potential change over the coming Stat Packs.

Highest Win Percentage (2+ matches)

1= Max Mini 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. The Ultimate Warrior 79% (19 matches)
6. Hulk Hogan 74% (29 matches)
7. The Steiner Brothers 66% (6 matches)
8= Brian Pillman 66% (3 matches)
8= Tama 66% (3 matches)
10= Mo 60% (5 matches)
10= The Headbangers 60% (5 matches)

For this list, we have a top 11. Max Mini is a new entry, he’s one of the new “Mini’s” and the face of the Mini’s Division. He has won 2 from 2 much like Mr T and The Jumping Bomb Angels. This moves the likes of Ricky Steamboat, The Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan, The Steiner Brothers and Tama down a position. Doug Furnas and Phil Lafon drop off the list following their loss at Survivor Series 97 and The Undertaker drops off the list following a poor run of matches where he won none of his last 4. Rocky Maivia drops off the list following his loss at Survivor Series 97 but now Mo is joined by The Headbangers who have beaten the likes of Los Boricuas in recent months. Brian Pillmans win over Goldust at Ground Zero was enough to bring him onto the list in joint 8th.

Most Wins

1. Bret Hart (35)
2. The Undertaker (27)
3. British Bulldog (25)
4. Shawn Michaels (23)
5. Hulk Hogan (21)
6. Owen Hart (20)
7. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (18)
8. The Ultimate Warrior (15)
9. Razor Ramon (13)
10. Savio Vega (11)

Since Stat Pack Volume 11 (20 PPVs ago) it has only taken 10 wins to get on this list but finally there has been a change. Savio Vega is the new man to enter this list after he recorded his 10th and 11th wins respectively since the last Stat Pack. He knocks both Yokozuna and Earthquake off this list and joins the other 9 who have made up this list for some time. Shawn Michaels leapfrogs Hulk Hogan after winning 3 of his last 4 PPV matches. Bret Hart won 4 of his last 5 matches whilst British Bulldog has gained on The Undertaker somewhat after winning 3 of his last 5 matches. The Undertaker hasn’t won any of his last 4 PPV matches. It’s still something that after 75 WWE PPVs, it only takes 11 wins to get on this list. Hunter Hearst Helmsley and The Legion Of Doom are not far away.

Most Draws

1. Shawn Michaels (5)
2= Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake (3)
2= British Bulldog (3)
4= “Mr Wonderful” Paul Orndorff (2)
4= Bad News Brown (2)
4= Don Muraco (2)
4= Mankind (2)
4= Vader (2)
4= Yokozuna (2)

This Draws list is very similar to the one on the last Stat Pack with the only exception being that Shawn Michaels has one more draw to his name following his match with The Undertaker at Ground Zero. That takes his draw tally up to 5. Paul Orndorff has the biggest draw percentage as 33% of his matches ended in a no contest.

Most Losses

1. Bret Hart (27)
2. Shawn Michaels (24)
3= Tito Santana (22)
3= Owen Hart/The Blue Blazer (22)
5= Jake “The Snake” Roberts (21)
5= British Bulldog (21)
7. Marty Jannetty (20)
8= Hercules (19)
8= Crush (19)
8= The Undertaker (19)

It now takes 19 losses to get onto this list as opposed to 17 as the competition heats up. Bret Hart keeps his spot atop this list followed by Shawn Michaels, which is fairly predictable considering how many PPV matches they’ve had. Tito Santana stays in third but is now joined by Owen Hart/The Blue Blazer who lost 4 of his last 5 PPV matches. As a result, Jake Roberts falls to 5th place and is now joined by British Bulldog who lost 2 of his last 5 PPV matches. Jannetty drops two places from 5th to 7th as does Hercules who goes from 6th to 8th and is now joined by Crush and The Undertaker who have both lost 19 pay per view matches. Greg Valentine and Rick Martel drop off this list and will be thankful for it. Valentine was on this list since the very first Stat Pack.

Highest Loss Percentage

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

This list, like the same list in the last Stat Pack, features 11 of the WWFs unluckiest victims. The top 2 stay the same with Koko on top. The first change comes in the #3 spot as it was once co-occupied by Phineas Godwinn but he actually won a match and that was at Badd Blood when he and Henry won the Tag Team titles from The Headbangers so he drops off this list. As a result, Ron Bass and The Bezerker rise a position to joint 5th and they are joined by Leif Cassidy who lost his match to Tiger Ali Singh at One Night Only. We then have Leilani Kai, Ken Patera and Paul Diamond in joint 8th but they are now joined by Barry Windham who lost his match at Survivor Series 97 to get on this list.

Most Main Events

1. Bret Hart (24)
2. Hulk Hogan (20)
3. The Undertaker (19)
4. Shawn Michaels (18)
5. Diesel (12)
6. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (10)
7= British Bulldog (9)
7= Yokozuna (9)
9. Sid (8)
10. The Ultimate Warrior (7)

There is only one subtle change to this list and that is British Bulldog, who main evented One Night Only against Shawn Michaels, rise up one position from joint 8th with Sid to joint 7th with Yokozuna. Bret Hart leaves the WWF with a comfortable lead on his competitors and it would take a lot of wins to knock him off this list completely. The Undertaker has closed the gap on Hulk Hogan and he and Shawn Michaels could be the second and third men to leapfrog him by the time the next Stat Pack comes around.

Top Rated Matches

1. The Hart Foundation vs. Team Austin – IYH: Canadian Stampede (9.5/10)
2. Ultimate Warrior vs. Randy Savage – Wrestlemania VII (9/10)
3=  Randy Savage vs. Ricky Steamboat – Wrestlemania III (8.5/10)
3= Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin – Wrestlemania 13 (8.5/10)
3= Razor Ramon vs. Shawn Michaels – Wrestlemania X (8.5/10)
3= Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker – Badd Blood 97 (8.5/10)
3= The 1992 Royal Rumble Match (8.5/10)
8= Randy Savage vs. The Ultimate Warrior – Summerslam 92 (8.25/10)
8= Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart – Wrestlemania X (8.25/10)
8= Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon – Summerslam 95 (8.25/10)
8= Shawn Michaels vs. Mankind – IYH: Mind Games (8.25/10)

Lowest Rated Matches

1. Guerrera, Heavy Metal & Estrada vs. Aguayo, Canek & Garza – Royal Rumble 1997 (1/10)
2. Leif Cassidy vs. Tiger Ali Singh – One Night Only (1.75/10)
3= Paul Orndorff vs. Tito Santana – Wrestling Classic (2/10)
3= Fabulous Moolah vs. Velvet McIntyre – Wrestlemania II (2/10)
3= Uncle Elmer vs. Adrian Adonis – Wrestlemania II (2/10)
3= Corporal Kirchner vs. Nikolai Volkoff – Wrestlemania II (2/10)
3= Tony Garea vs. Ted Arcidi – The Big Event (2/10)
3= Haku vs. Don Muraco – The Big Event (2/10)
3= Adrian Adonis vs. Junkyard Dog – The Big Event (2/10)
3= Jake Roberts vs. Andre The Giant – Wrestlemania V (2/10)
3= Demolition vs. Tenryu & Kitao – Wrestlemania VII (2/10)
3= Jake “The Snake” Roberts vs. Jerry “The King” Lawler – Summerslam 96 (2/10)
3= Mosaic & Tarantula vs. Max Mini & Nova – Badd Blood 97 (2/10)

There are a few new additions to both of these lists. For the best matches, there is just one and that is the first ever Hell In A Cell match between Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker. A brilliant match that set the bar high for this type of match and of course featured the debut of the demonic Kane. In terms of the lowest rated matches, we got the second lowest rated match ever between Leif Cassidy and Tiger Ali Singh and joint third with the Mini’s match from Badd Blood. The Leif Cassidy match was a bit of a shocker considering how good his previous matches had been.

Tag Teams With Highest Win Percentage (2+ matches)

1. The Natural Disasters 100% (4 matches)
2. The Steiner Brothers 100% (3 matches)
3= Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff 100% (2 matches)
3= Men On A Mission 100% (2 matches)
3= The Brain Busters 100% (2 matches)
6.  The Legion Of Doom 80% (10 matches)
7= Owen Hart & Yokozuna 75% (4 matches)
7= The Headbangers 75% (4 matches)
9. The Nasty Boys 66.6% (3 matches)
10. Demolition 60% (5 matches)

Just a couple of small changes to this list. The Headbangers are the only new entry, they have won 3 of their 4 tag team matches which include wins over the likes of The Godwinns and Los Boricuas. Owen Hart & The British Bulldog are the team to make way. The Legion Of Doom have gone down from an 86% win percentage to 80% but it doesn’t affect their position on this list.

Tag Teams With Highest Loss Percentage (2+ matches)

1= Strike Force 100% (2 matches)
1= The Blu Brothers 100% (2 matches)
1= The Bolsheviks 100% (2 matches)
4. The Godwinns 87.5% (8 matches)
5= Money Inc 66.6% (3 matches)
5= Power & Glory 66.6% (3 matches)
5= The Beverly Brothers 66.6% (3 matches)
5= The Dream Team 66.6% (3 matches)
9. The Orient Express 60% (5 matches)
10. The Fabulous Rougeaus 60% (5 matches)

There is only one major change to this list and that is The Godwinns going from first to fourth after they finally won a match together. Not just any match either, they defeated The Headbangers at Badd Blood to capture the Tag Team titles. All the rest is the same as before, with The Fabulous Rougeaus propping up the list and not joint with The Orient Express due to the match they drew with The British Bulldogs.

Highest Average Match Rating (2+ matches)

1. Ric Flair (7.14)
2. Hakushi (7.06)
3. Aldo Montoya (7)
4. Mick Foley (6.79)
5. Kwang (6.75)
6. Kama (6.7)
7. Dean Douglas (6.66)
8. D-lo Brown (6.62)
9. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin (6.61)
10. Shawn Michaels (6.55)

This is an interesting list. A lot of the higher names have highly rated Royal Rumble matches to thank. Ric Flair being the exception of course, he could have a good match with a broomstick. Mankind has become Mick Foley due to Dude Love making his PPV debut and he rises from 5th to 4th. Kwang has gone above Kama and they have both risen above Steve Austin who drops to 9th. D-lo Brown, although yet to have a singles match on PPV, is the highest new entry, in at number 8 whilst Shawn Michaels enters the list at number 10.

Lowest Average Match Rating (2+ matches)

1. Corporal Kirchner (2.5)
2. Max Mini (2.75)
3. Adrian Adonis (2.85)
4= Velvet McIntyre (3)
4= Fabulous Moolah (3)
6. Rockin Robin (3.5)
7. Judy Martin (3.58)
8. Tama (3.66)
9= Leilani Kai (3.75)
9= Nailz (3.75)
9= Billy Jack Haynes (3.75)

With match quality getting better over the years it is very rare that we get a new entry to this list. However, this one is the exception to the rule as midget wrestler Max Mini is a new entry, straight in at number 2. And although his singles match wasn’t too bad, the tag team match we saw at Badd Blood was awful. And so Max Mini enters this usually untouched list at 2.

Bastions Top 10

1. Bret Hart (24162)
2. The Undertaker (18186)
3. Shawn Michaels (16882)
4. British Bulldog (15644)
5. Hulk Hogan (15331)
6. Owen Hart (12712)
7. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (1198)
8. The Ultimate Warrior (9629)
9. Razor Ramon (8195)
10. The Legion Of Doom (6461)

This is the big one. This really determines how much of an affect wrestlers have had on their audience. The numbers you see is a complex formula made up on matches had, match ratings, main events and win success. Since the last Stat Pack, Shawn Michaels and The British Bulldog have both leapfrogged Hulk Hogan. The only other difference is that Yokozuna has made way for The Legion Of Doom, both Hawk and Animal who have identical scores due to having always been in the same matches together.

Top 10 Title Reigns

1. Diesel – 1st World Heavyweight Title Reign
2. Shawn Michaels – 1st World Heavyweight Title Reign
3. Owen Hart & The British Bulldog – 1st Tag Team Title Reign
4. Hulk Hogan – 1st World Heavyweight Title Reign
5. The Undertaker – 2nd World Heavyweight Title Reign
6. Yokozuna – 2nd World Heavyweight Title Reign
7. Bret Hart – 3rd World Heavyweight Title Reign
8. Rocky Maivia – 1st Intercontinental Title Reign
9. Shawn Michaels – 1st Intercontinental Title Reign
10. Demolition – 1st Tag Team Title Reign

This list stay exactly the same as on the last Stat Pack. The tag team titles have been passed around recently from Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels to Steve Austin and Dude Love to The Headbangers to The Godwinns to The Legion Of Doom giving the titles no stability. The Intercontinental title has been vacated also between being passed between Steve Austin and Owen Hart. The World Heavyweight title has had a bit more stability with Undertakers long reign and Bret Hart recent reign.

Most Matches Managed

1. Jimmy Hart (64)
2. Mr Fuji (40)
3. Bobby Heenan (37)

6. Slick (23)
7. “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase (21)
8. Miss Elizabeth (18)
9. Marlena (15)
10. Harvey Wippleman (13)

Paul Bearer moves a step closer to Bobby Heenan on this list having only managed one match in the last 5 PPVs. That was managing Kane to a victory over Mankind at Survivor Series 97. The other change on this list is Marlena who moves above Harvey Wippleman after managing Goldust twice on the last 5 shows.

Highest Managerial Success Rate (2+ matches)

2. Jose Lothario 77.7% (9 matches)
3. Chyna 75% (8 matches)
4. Diesel 66.6% (3 matches)
5. Paul Bearer 61% (36 matches)

8= Bob Backlund 50% (2 matches)
8= Fabulous Moolah 50% (2 matches)
8= Freddie Blassie 50% (2 matches)
8= Mr Perfect 50% (2 matches)

The only change to this list is that Chyna has fallen down from first to third after managing Triple H to a couple of losses. Paul Bearer goes up a percentage from 60% to 61% after Kane beat Mankind at Survivor Series.

Highest Managerial Loss Rate (2+ matches)

1. Hillbilly Jim 100% (6 matches)
2. Luna 100% (5 matches)
3. Uncle Zeb 100% (3 matches)
4= “Cowboy” Bob Orton 100% (2 matches)
4= Kim Chee 100% (2 matches)
4= Oliver Humperdink 100% (2 matches)
7. Harvey Wippleman 85% (13 matches)
8. General Adnan 80% (5 matches)
9. Diana Smith 75% (4 matches)
10. Clarence Mason 73% (11 matches)

Absolutely no changes to this list from the last Stat Pack. All of the above managers haven’t been active and there are no current managers doing badly enough to warrant getting on this list.
