7 months ago By Sports Desk

The world of professional wrestling is home to some of the most iconic performers in all of sports entertainment. Legends like The Undertaker, Triple H, Shawn Michaels and many more have had historic careers that spanned decades and revolutionized the landscape of WWE. While those Hall of Famers have hung up their boots, the current generation of superstars continues to ignite passions and spark awe in fans globally.

In this article, we take a look at five active competitors in WWE who have made the most pay-per-view (PPV) appearances. Through their jaw-dropping moves, riveting rivalries and championship victories, they have created several indelible moments at WWE’s flagship events.

Randy Orton is currently WWE’s apex predator with 181 PPV matches under his belt. Debuting all the way back in 2002, his menacing persona, wrestling skills and venomous RKO finisher have made him a marquee name for over 20 years. nickname “The Legend Killer” stems from Orton taking out icons like Mick Foley, Hulk Hogan and more early in his career. He is a 14-time world champion and has defeated the likes of John Cena, Triple H and the Undertaker at WrestleMania. Orton remains one of WWE’s most popular characters playing a vicious heel. Fans will never forget his sadistic, psychopathic tendencies shown during feuds.

John Cena is not only the franchise face of WWE but also a 16-time world champion with 164 PPV appearances. He debuted in 2002 with a rapper gimmick before transitioning into the Superman-esque performer beloved by many. Cena had instant traction with catchphrases like “You Can’t See Me” and moved tons of merchandise as the ultimate babyface. He had an unprecedented reign on top while having classic matches and storylines against a who’s who of wrestling legends and rising talents. Though Cena is now a part-time performer focused on Hollywood, he remains the standard-bearer and a surefire future Hall of Famer for WWE.

The Miz epitomizes how reality television can lead to WWE glory. After appearing on MTV’s The Real World, Miz trained and debuted as a wrestler in WWE in 2006. His persona as an arrogant, brash loudmouth made fans love to hate him. Inside the squared circle, he slowly sharpened his craft and ascended from midcard to main event status with hard work and personality. The Miz can currently boast 130 PPV showings and multiple Intercontinental and WWE Championship reigns cementing his place as one of WWE’s most consummate villains ever.

Rey Mysterio’s career has broken boundaries on the path to 122 PPV bouts in WWE. He brought the high-flying, fast-paced wrestling style of lucha libre from Mexico to a wider US audience. Kids and adults alike adore him for his colorful masks and costumes along with signature moves like the 619. Mysterio has often played the underdog battling behemoths twice his size. Despite his diminutive stature, he captured heavyweight championships and fans’ imaginations. In the ring, Mysterio’s quickness and daring aerial maneuvers set pulses racing. WWE would simply not be the same without his legacy of innovation.

Rounding out the list with 121 PPV showings is former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston. As part of The New Day, Kingston enjoyed tremendous popularity with fans clamoring for his first singles world title. In 2019, the audience erupted when he captured the WWE Championship after 11 long years with WWE. In the ring, Kingston flies high-risk maneuver and displays almost gymnastic-like athletics. His signature Boom Drop lives up to its electrifying name. While Kingston is currently on the mend from injury, his high-octane style will undoubtedly continue thrilling viewers upon his return.

Randy Orton, John Cena, The Miz, Rey Mysterio and Kofi Kingston currently make up the active roster with the most PPV matches under WWE’s banner. Their stories encapsulate triumphs, tribulations and the ultimate glory that comes with performing on wrestling’s biggest stages consistently. While others have come before them, their bodies of work will influence up-and-coming talents for generations.
