Professional wrestling latest news and results? The vintage star of WWE, Rik Flair aka The “Nature Boy”, was one of the 80s most gifted wrestlers. He held the NWA/ WCW World Heavyweight Championship more than any other wrestler. Unfortunately, the lack of attention in NWA/WCW compared to WWF was disadvantageous to Flair. Flair will be known for his unbelievable set of marathon matches with Ricky Steamboat. He now holds his place in the No.9 spot among the best wrestlers of all time.
Before becoming a professional wrestler, Big Swole worked in the Air Force as a fire truck mechanic. She chose to leave the Air Force when she was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, and she was told she would never be able to have kids or participate in high impact sports. However, Big Swole has proven her ability to defy all expectations, and she credits the Air Force for teaching her the importance of discipline. Although Big Swole was recently suspended for kidnapping Dr. Britt Baker, there’s no doubt she will continue to be a strong competitor in the women’s division.
In the second half of the 19th century, two wrestling styles developed that ultimately dominated international wrestling: Greco-Roman wrestling and catch-as-catch-can, or freestyle wrestling. Greco-Roman wrestling, popularized first in France, was so called because it was thought to be the kind of wrestling done by the ancients. Greco-Roman wrestling involves holds made only above the waist and forbids wrapping the legs about an opponent when the wrestlers go down. Originally it was professional and popularized at international expositions held at Paris, but after its inclusion in the revived Olympic Games in 1896, Greco-Roman wrestling events were held at subsequent Olympic Games except in 1900 and 1904.
It’s tough to keep winning streaks alive in today’s WWE. Except for Asuka’s incredible 914-day undefeated streak and Undertaker’s legendary streak at WrestleMania, there haven’t been too many impressive undefeated streaks to talk about in WWE, recently. Therefore, it’s impressive that Adam Cole did not take a pin in WWE for over a year. Before Keith Lee ended his run as NXT Champion, Adam Cole hadn’t lost a singles match via pinfall since winning the title at NXT Takeover XXV. Cole only suffered two DQ losses in his run as champion. Similar to Cole’s run, Becky Lynch, who wrestled her last match at WrestleMania 36, hadn’t had a loss via pinfall since losing to Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at Money In The Bank in May, 2019. After losing to Flair, Lynch only suffered one loss in singles matches (via disqualification). The DQ loss came against Sasha Banks at Clash of Champions 2019.

Only a silver medal for the man who carried WWE during the 2000s. From his Ruthless Aggression debut to becoming the Doctor of Thuganomics, Cena enjoyed an unprecedented rise to the top. His success sparked an infamously polarising reaction from fans as the leader of the Cenation became the undisputed face of WWE. The company’s franchise player accomplishments during the decade are too vast to list, as big match John racked up gold on route to equaling Ric Flair’s record for most world titles at 16.
