Since it’s creation in 1985, over 400 wrestlers have participated in WrestleMania. In the spirit of ‘Maina season and being a stat-nerd, I decided to calculate each wrestlers record on the big stage.
Here is a quick overview of how the list was made.
- I only counted Wrestlers who have competed in at LEAST FIVE matches.
- All matches (single, tag, multi-man ladder, battle royals, ETC) counted
- Wrestlers who have competed in more than one match in the same night have counted as two or more matches to their respective records
- While normally pre-show matches don’t count for some, I included those in the win/loss record, to change things up.
After countless hours of research and history lessons, here are the top 10 best WrestleMania winning percentages.
10. Ted DiBiase (57.1%)
- Record: 4-3
The Million Dollar Man and Hall of Famer comes in at number 10. Mainly competing in tag team patches with Irwin R. Schyster and competed in the WrestleMania IV tournament to crown the new WWF Champion, but lost in the finals to Randy Savage.
9. Eight-way tie for 60%
- Brutus Beefcake: 3-2
- Dean Ambrose: 3-2
- Edge: 6-4
- Ricky Steamboat: 3-2
- Rikishi: 3-2
- Road Warrior Animal: 3-2
- Shane McMahon: 3-2
- Trish Stratus: 3-2
A wide range of superstars ties for 9th at 60%. From the early days of Brutus Beefcake and Ricky Steamboat to most recent wrestlers like Dean Ambrose.
The most notable name on this list is Edge, who had a nice winning streak early on his career ranging from his early historic TLC match to his last match against Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship. Trish Stratus is also the only female superstar to make the list, with every match she was apart of for the Women’s Championship.
8. Brock Lesnar (62.5%)
- Record: 5-3
The Beast Incarnate’s first WrestleMania win happened against Kurt Angle at XIX and lost the next year to Goldberg. He took some time off from the WWE and is known for being one of two superstars to beat The Undertaker and The Grandest Stage of Them All. He will have another match against Seth Rollins this Sunday in what many speculate as one of his final appearances in the WWE.
7. Randy Savage (63.6%)
- Record: 7-4
The Hall of Famer “Macho Man” Randy Savage had a lot of memorable WrestleMania moments which included battling the likes of Hulk Hogan for the WWF title.
6. Tie for 66.6%
- The British Bulldog: 4-2
- Roman Reigns: 4-2
The British Bulldog won a majority of his WrestleMania matches in tag team contest while Roman Reigns’ majority wins came in singles contests.

5. Four-way tie for 71.4 %

A stacked list of guys enter at five with all having WrestleMania moments in their own right. Stone Cold Steve Austin was in WWE title picture during the attitude era while Daniel Bryan’s double victory at XXX helped him jump the charts.
John Cena has been a staple during the 2000s to present WrestleMania with matches varying from WWE Championships to United States Championship matches. Let’s not forget Owen Hart here, as he had his fair share of victories including beating his brother Bret Hart at WrestleMania X
4. Hulk Hogan (72.7%)

The iconic Hulk Hogan was popular during the early stages of the then WWF where he was a constant presence in the title picture. His most recent win here was against Chairman Vince McMahon in a Street Fight at ‘Mania XIX.
3. Three-way tie for 80%
- Earthquake: 4-1
- Rob Van Dam: 4-1
- The Ultimate Warrior: 4-1
A wide-range of superstars, Earthquake is a notable name here as he was on the winning end of multiple WrestleMania matches in the early 90s. The Ultimate Warrior was an iconic wrestler who has also had his fair share of victories at The Show of Shows.
Rob Van Dam is the most recent superstar on this list, winning tag team matches as well as the Money in the Bank match at WrestleMania 22. His only loss at the show came on the XIX pre-show, teaming up with Kane and losing to Lance Storm and Cheif Morley (Val Venis).
2. Tie for 83.3%
- Big Boss Man: 5-1
- Seth Rollins: 5-1
Seth Rollins will look to add another victory in his ‘Mania record as he goes up against Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. Rollins’ other win include Triple H at 33, The Miz and Finn Bálor at 34 and cashing in his Money in the Bank contract at 31 to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Big Boss Man has had his fair share of victories, including beating Mr. Perfect by disqualification at WrestleMania VII for the Intercontinental Championship.
1. The Undertaker (92.3%)
- Record: 24-2
Before you scrolled down, you knew that The Undertaker would be number one on the list. The legend himself had a historic 21 straight WrestleMania wins before shockingly losing to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX. He had more wins after beating Bray Wyatt and Shane McMahon at ‘Maina 31 and 32 respectively before losing what is his final WrestleMania match against Roman Reigns at 34.
His 24-2 record is iconic amongst WWE fans and we will likely never see any winning percentage as close as he has had in a very long time.
