With 2021 drawing to a close and a new year on the horizon, WWE’s broadcast partners BT Sports have listed the ten WWE Superstars that have competed the most this year.
2021 in WWE has seen many things – rap superstar Bad Bunny stealing the show at WrestleMania, zombies trying to steal The Miz at WrestleMania Backlash, and The Tribal Chief ending the year as he began, ruling SmackDown with an iron fist as Universal Champion.
But which stars laced up their boots and got in the ring the most in 2021? WWE On BT Sport published a definitive list of the top ten on social media with a former WWE Champion way out in front.
Drew McIntyre competed in 2021 an astonishing 95 times. The Scotsman won 73 of those bouts, losing 19, and three bouts against Kofi Kingston, Sheamus, and Randy Orton on Raw all ending in a ‘no contest’ in the first half of the year.
While McIntyre’s 2021 might not have lived up to his 2020 when he won the WWE Championship, the star in second place has had a 2021 like no other. Bianca Belair competed a whopping 82 times for WWE in 2021, with one of those matches being the main event of WrestleMania 37 where Belair captured the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Sasha Banks.
That match marked one of The EST Of WWE’s 41 wins in 2021, while one of her 37 losses came in just 26 seconds when she lost her title to Becky Lynch at SummerSlam.
In third place on the list is current Raw Tag Team Champion Riddle who has competed 81 times with a win/loss record of 57-23. Joint third with Riddle but with a losing win/loss record of 29-51 is one-half of the current SmackDown Tag Team Champions, Jey Uso.
Three matches further down the list is SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair who has competed in 78 matches with 40 wins and 32 defeats. One of those defeats famously came at the hands of Becky Lynch in a champion vs. champion match at Survivor Series.
Behind Flair is current WWE Champion Big E who has competed 77 times this year. One of Big E’s 58 victories came against Bobby Lashley when The New Day star cashed in his Money In The Bank contract to win his first WWE Title.
Jimmy Uso takes a surprising 7th place on the list with 72 matches to his name. Uso’s place on the list is more remarkable given he didn’t return to in-ring action in 2021 until May following over a year out due to injury.
