Drew McIntyre has played the most matches in WWE of 2021
Another year is coming to an end, which gives us and the rest of the wrestling world a chance to look back and reflect on what has happened in the business. The best games, the biggest impacts and the moments that will be remembered well beyond the end of 2021. It’s also a chance to recognize the hardest workers, and according to Cage Match, there is no has had no hard workers across WWE and AEW that Drew McIntyre.
93 games in 2021
The Scottish psychopath has played an impressive 93 games in 2021, winning 72 which is also a record in 2021. Bianca Belair takes a very respectable second place wrestling 82 games, while Jey Uso and Riddle round out the top three with 80 games. each. No one even came close to McIntyre in terms of wins, however. Big E takes silver with 58 and Riddle takes bronze with 56.
McIntyre kicked off his 2021 defending the WWE Title on Raw against Keith Lee. This match alone, and the one McIntyre will face off in to kick off 2021, shows how much things can change in a year. McIntyre is no longer a WWE Champion, of course, and his first match of 2022 will be somewhat of a draw against Madcap Moss on Day 1. Plus, the man he defended the title against on January 4 n ‘s more with the company.
AEW’s prize is still up for grabs
The total number of AEW matches is not that high. The three-year class doesn’t run as many live events and has fewer PPVs though, so that adds up. Jungle Boy currently holds the AEW Most Matches title in 2021 after appearing 52 times. With two shows to do before the end of the year, that could change everything. Evil Uno and Tay Conti have both played in 51 games, while Max Caster is sitting in 50. That title could elude Jungle Boy depending on what happens during Dynamite and Rampage this week.
As with most wins, Conti probably already has that title tied. 43 victories in 2021 against 40 for Orange Cassidy. Unless Cassidy makes multiple appearances on a show this week, the Brazilian star’s record is safe. Conti has had a pretty remarkable year in AEW. Not only because she’s competing for the women’s title on PPV, but the transformation she’s had since signing with the promotion has been remarkable.
Hard to believe he’s been gone for a year.
