5 WWE Superstars who lost more than they won WrestleMania

5 WWE Superstars who lost more than they won WrestleMania
Being a part of a WrestleMania card is a huge achievement in and of itself. It's the biggest pro wrestling event of the year, and every WWE Superstar puts in a year's worth of effort in order to secure a big spot at the event.

In WWE's illustrious past, a long list of performers have competed on The Grandest Stage Of Them All and wowed the WWE Universe with epic performances. Just a few people have impressive WrestleMania history. Most of the WrestleMania matches have been dominated by The Undertaker, Edge, John Cena, and a few others.

And there are superstars who have been regulars at The Show of Shows for years and have a dismal win/loss record.

The performers on the following list have lost more matches at WrestleMania than they have won at the mega event. The list will concentrate on WWE's biggest superstars over the years who, despite losing the majority of their matches, are remembered as some of the show's best competitors.

Chris Jericho matches at WrestleMania

Chris Jericho's first appearance at WrestleMania was in 2000 when he won the European Championship by defeating Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit in a Triple Threat match. On the same night that Benoit won another Triple Threat match to win the Intercontinental Championship, Chris Jericho lost his first match at the show. In the main event of WrestleMania 18, Jericho will lose the Undisputed WWE championship to Triple H.

Over the next few years, he faced Shawn Michaels in (2003), Christian in (2004), Edge (in the first-ever Money In The Bank Ladder match in 2005), and CM Punk, among others (another MITB outing in 2008).

During his WWE career, Chris Jericho mostly played the role of a heel, so it was inevitable that he would lose the majority of his matches at WrestleMania. He lost the United States Championship to Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 33 after an upset defeat to Fandango in 2013. This was his last match at WrestleMania, and he is now a top star in the AEW.

Randy Orton matches at Wrestlemania

Randy Orton has played in WrestleMania 16 times. The Viper is one of the most infamous villains in the history of the squared circle. Randy Orton won his first WrestleMania match with an RKO on WWE legend Mick Foley, earning him his first victory at the show. In 2005, he lost his first WrestleMania match when he was defeated by The Undertaker.

In 2006, Randy Orton lost a Triple Threat Match for the World Championship to Rey Mysterio, as well as a Money In The Bank Ladder match in 2007. In 2009, he was unable to beat Triple H for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 25. Orton's next defeat came in 2012 when he was defeated by Kane in a singles play.

Daniel Bryan beat Batista and Randy Orton in the main event of WrestleMania 30 to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. At WrestleMania 35 and 36, Randy Orton was defeated by WWE legends AJ Styles and Edge. In the culmination of a months-long rivalry, he will face The Fiend at this year's gathering.

Shawn Michaels matches at WrestleMania

Despite having a poor record at The Show of Shows, Shawn Michaels has been dubbed Mr. WrestleMania. The nickname comes from Michaels' long list of iconic WrestleMania performances, despite losing the majority of his matches. During his two WWE stints, Michaels played in 17 matches, losing 11 of them.

Razor Ramon, Diesel, and Stone Cold Steve Austin are just a few of the big names. During his first stint in WWE, Steve Austin beat Shawn Michaels in singles WrestleMania matches. In 2003, Michaels made a major comeback to The Show of Shows by defeating Chris Jericho.

Shawn Michaels' second term saw him lose to Chris Benoit, John Cena, Kurt Angle, and The Undertaker, among others. In 2008, when he retired WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels won his last WrestleMania match.

He would go on to lose two more times to The Undertaker, the second of which was his final match on The Grandest Stage Of Them All. Many consider Michaels vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania 25 to be the greatest match of all time.

The Big Show matches at WrestleMania

The Big Show is one of the most fearsome rivals to ever reach a WWE WrestleMania arena. Because of his massive size and immense strength, anybody who beat him on a major stage will get a huge rubbing. As a result, WWE booked him in a series of WrestleMania matches, all of which he lost humiliatingly. On the way to WrestleMania 28, Cody Rhodes made fun of him for doing the same thing.

In 1999, the Big Show's first WrestleMania resulted in his first loss. Mankind, a WWE legend, was defeated by DQ. The Big Show didn't win a WrestleMania match until 2006 when he teamed up with Kane to beat Carlito and Chris Masters to successfully defend the World tag team titles. During this time, he lost to Akebono, John Cena, and The Undertaker, among others.

At WrestleMania 24, boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. dealt The Big Show an embarrassing defeat. A year later, The Big Show lost another fight, this time to John Cena, who won the World title by defeating him and Edge. Before being thrown out by Cesaro at WrestleMania 30, he came close to winning the first Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royale.

Triple H matches at WrestleMania

Triple H's WrestleMania record should put anyone who claims he rarely puts anyone over to shame. To date, The Game has played in 23 WrestleMania matches, losing 13 of them. In 1996, Triple H was defeated by The Ultimate Warrior in his first WrestleMania match. A year later, against Goldust, he won the event for the first time. In 2001, he suffered his worst WrestleMania defeat to The Undertaker.

Over the next few years, Triple H participated in a series of WrestleMania main events, losing to some of WWE's biggest stars. In 2004 and 2005, he lost the World title to Chris Benoit and Batista, respectively. In high-profile matches in 2011 and 2012, Triple H wrestled The Undertaker. On both occasions, he was unable to stop the run.

At WrestleMania 30, Triple H and Daniel Bryan had a classic battle, with the latter winning. In the final match of WrestleMania 32, The Game was defeated by Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. A year later, he suffered a major defeat to Seth Rollins. In 2018, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon lost a Mixed tag team match to Ronda Rousey, and Kurt Angle continuing their losing streak. In 2019, Triple H defeated Batista in his final match at WrestleMania. Last year, he didn't compete in The Show of Shows.
