WrestleMania 31 is tomorrow, and there are going to be a lot of superstars looking to up their numbers and possibly make a huge name for themselves. They want to go down in the record books and be someone who everyone always remembers. With that, let’s take a look at some random and fun facts that have come about through the history of WrestleMania.
A lot of research has been done to figure out these WrestleManiafun facts, but WWE has been gracious enough to provide some of their own as well. Looking at the numbers, it may be hard to believe some of the things that have happened at the huge event over the past 31 years.
Most WrestleMania Appearances — 22: This title belongs to The Undertaker, and that means he also owns the record for most matches with 22 as well. What some people don’t know is that while his undefeated streak is over, WrestleMania 31 will mark his 14th consecutive appearance, which adds on to the record he already owns.
Bret “Hit Man” Hart had the old record for most consecutive WrestleMania appearances with 12. He appeared in WrestleMania 2 up through number 13. Undertaker has now appeared in number 17 and this year will mark through number 31.
