Undertaker

Undertaker has had eight different ring names

It is common for WWE superstars to change their ring name often.

However, The Undertaker went through a change for a record eight times.

He made his debut as The Master of Pain, followed by Texas Red, The Punisher, Punisher Dice Morgan, Commando and Mean Mark Callous.

His seventh name was unique, Kane The Undertaker, before Kane arrived in WWE. Weird!

Most watched match

Andre, The Giant vs Hulk Hogan (1988) the most watched

After Andre, The Giant lost to Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 3, the former challenged for a rematch at The Main Event, a year later.

While Andre managed to pin Hogan, it was not a clean one as Ted DiBiase had conspired and hired referee Dave Hebner's twin brother.

The match was viewed by over 33 million people (a record at that time).

Bryan rumbles

Royal Rumble's most unique record held by Daniel Bryan

In another unique achievement, current WWE superstar Daniel Bryan holds the record of being in a Royal Rumble match for the longest time.

He scripted the record in 2018 during the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia, lasting for one hour and 16 minutes.

However, the strange fact is that Bryan did not win the match.
