Strowman missed his first PPV in nearly two years

34 unique performers competed in a match on the main card of Fastlane 2019.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at which performers have currently wrestled on the most consecutive pay-per-view (PPV) events as of March 2019. The only rules are that the superstar must have wrestled for more than zero seconds on the main card of the PPV (sorry, pre-show fans), brand-exclusive events will not be counted against roster members of the alternative brand, and male wrestlers will not be penalized for missing Evolution. Events in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are omitted from this exercise.

  • 12 events - Daniel Bryan
  • 6 events - Nia Jax
  • 4 events - Kofi Kingston, Baron Corbin
  • 3 events - Shane, Miz, Banks, Bayley, Mandy, Tamina, Lashley, Joe
  • 2 events - The Usos
  • 1 event - Asuka, The Bar, The Revival, Ricochet, Black, Roode, Gable, Truth, Rey, Andrade, Owens, Ali, Lynch, Flair, McIntyre, The Shield

And here are the streaks that ended at Fastlane.

  • 18 events - Braun Strowman
  • 8 events - Ronda Rousey
  • 5 events - Carmella
  • 4 events - Finn Balor
  • 3 events - Ruby, Orton, Styles
  • 2 events - IIconics, Morgan, Naomi, Logan, Sonya, Jeff Hardy
  • 1 event - Lio Rush

The last time Braun Strowman didn’t wrestle on a PPV he was eligible for occurred in June 2017 at Extreme Rules, a Raw exclusive event. The Monster Among men began his 18 event streak the following month at Great Balls of Fire when he defeated Roman Reigns in an Ambulance match. Now that Braun’s streak is over, there are no more active streaks that reach back to the era of brand-exclusive PPV events, which ended one year ago with Fastlane 2018.

Daniel Bryan now leads all active streaks with 12 events, but there is a caveat. Bryan missed the Crown Jewel show in November 2018, and the first 7 events of his streak came before that one. I do not count the shows from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia because I do not know how to create a proper eligibility list (for example, is Sami Zayn eligible to compete?). But for those readers who think those events should be counted and all males are eligible, then Nia Jax would lead all active streaks with 6 consecutive events.

What do you think about this list of active streaks, Cagesiders? Which wrestler is most likely to fall off the list next month?
