There have been several WWE Superstars with impressive undefeated streaks that have awed the performers' many fans. For every wrestler who has made history with an unbreakable succession of wins, there is a behemoth who obtained glory by finally dethroning them. All streaks have to end sometime, and the longer they last, the more is at stake.
Multiple champions have elevated the prestige of the title belt around their waist with a fantastic streak of matches, and just as many have made history by finally bringing that streak to an end. Here are five Superstars who had impressive undefeated streaks, as well as the five Superstars who finally defeated them.
10 Undefeated: Asuka
Asuka's reign with the NXT Women's Championship is historic. From the moment she debuted in developmental, the Empress of Tomorrow was an unbeatable force who tore through the Women's Division, picking up wins over the likes of Dana Brooke, Emma, and Ember Moon.
Asuka held the NXT Women's Championship for 510 days after defeating Bayley at NXT TakeOver: Dallas in 2016. She relinquished the title of her own accord upon ascending to the main roster, where she has held the SmackDown Women's Championship once.
9 Defeated By: Charlotte Flair
Charlotte Flair is arguably the biggest star in the women's locker room. She is a 9-time Women's Champion, a former NXT Women's Champion in her own right and one of the first women to headline a pay-per-view, as well as main event WrestleMania.
Asuka's defeat at the hands of Charlotte at WrestleMania 34 for the SmackDown Women's Championship was a controversial decision, as it plunged the Empress of Tomorrow into directionless obscurity. Hopefully, a reign with the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships alongside Kaira Sane is in her future.
8 Undefeated: Andre The Giant
Andre the Giant remains one of the most notable stars of the wrestling industry and a pinnacle of WWE history. He was undefeated for nearly fifteen years, booked and sold as an unstoppable giant who was incapable of losing a match.
Andre the Giant was one of the most beloved babyfaces in wrestling during the 1970s and early 1980s. Despite technically losing a few matches outside of WWF (as it was known), his near fifteen-year streak is still remembered as being intact.
7 Defeated By: Hulk Hogan
If there was going to be a wrestler that would finally dethrone Andre the Giant, it was WWF poster boy, Hulk Hogan. The Real American dealt Andre his first loss during WrestleMania III's main event, pinning the Giant following a bodyslam to win the WWF World Heavyweight Championship.
This match was a clash of titans. Both icons of wrestling, it was an almighty collision that ended the streak of one of WWE's most acclaimed Superstars.
6 Undefeated: Honky Tonk Man
The Honky Tonk Man has become synonymous with the Intercontinental Championship thanks to his historic reign and undefeated streak. He held the title for 454 days and is one of only four wrestlers - including Pedro Morales, Don Muraco, and Randy Savage - to have held the title for over a year.
The Honky Tonk Man played a heel for most of his career, but that hasn't stopped fans from remembering his reign fondly. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2019.
5 Defeated By: The Ultimate Warrior
The Ultimate Warrior is another wrestler synonymous with WWF during the 1980s. He defeated Honky Tonk Man at SummerSlam 1988, ending his reign with the Intercontinental Championship at 64 weeks.
The Honky Tonk Man was originally intended to defend his title against Brutus Beefcake, who was replaced at the last minute due to a storyline injury. Warrior defeated the Intercontinental Champion in thirty-one seconds, making it one of the shortest title defenses in one of the longest reigns.
4 Undefeated: Tatanka
Tatanka had an impressive undefeated streak in WWF, taking no televised losses from February 1991 until October 1993. The Native American Superstar defeated every other wrestler who stepped into the ring with him, including Shawn Michaels, Rick Martel, and The Brooklyn Brawler.
It was rumored that Vince McMahon wanted to push Tatanka heavily, which caused other wrestlers in the locker room to grow disgruntled. Nevertheless, Tatanka looked set to be the next big star in the company, as Vince was intending on putting the WWF Championship on him should his streak prove popular.
3 Defeated By: Ludvig Borga
Vince McMahon wanted to wait for the right Superstar to break Tatanka's streak, and he found it in Finnish wrestler Ludvig Borga. Borga had impressed McMahon with his international work in Japan and it was said that Vince saw "big things" in his future.
After interference from Mr. Fiji, Borga hit Tatanka with a steel chair before picking up the pin-fall victory, preceding a further beatdown for the fallen hero at the hands of WWF Champion Yokozuna.
2 Undefeated: The Undertaker
The Undertaker's streak is one of the most famous aspects in all of WWE history. The Deadman reigned supreme on the Grandest Stage of Them All, winning every WrestleMania match and defeating Superstars such as CM Punk and Shawn Michaels.
Admittedly, many fans were convinced that The Phenom would retire with his undefeated streak intact. Considering the prestige that surrounds The Undertaker whenever he steps into the ring, the loss of his streak was a moment that devastated the crowd, but damaged none of The Undertaker's credibility.
1 Defeated By: Brock Lesnar
When Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX, fans across the world held their breath. It was a moment so full of significance that nobody was quite sure how to react, the true indication of an end of an era.
The decision to have Lesnar finally be the Superstar to break the streak was controversial, though it succeded in portraying him as an unstoppable force of destruction. 'Taker has since been dealt with another loss on The Grandest Stage of Them All by Roman Reigns, which naturally put him on a collision course with the Beast Incarnate.
