As 2023 draws to a close, the world of professional wrestling, mainly WWE, reflects on a period marked by significant shifts in management and ownership, along with numerous roster changes. Amidst this transformative phase, certain WWE superstars have risen to unprecedented heights, setting new benchmarks for success in the ring.
Leading the pack of these exceptional athletes is none other than "The American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes. Rhodes' year was spectacular, beginning with a triumphant Royal Rumble victory, followed by a headline act at WrestleMania.
His rivalries with Brock Lesnar, The Judgment Day, and his current showdown with Shinsuke Nakamura have captivated fans worldwide. Rhodes competed in 108 matches, emerging victorious in 103, suffering only five losses, and recording no draws.
His staggering 95.4% win rate showcases his dominance and cements his status as the superstar with the most wins in 2023.
2023: Rollins' Winning Streak
Hot on his heels is Seth Rollins, who turned the tides from a series of losses to a remarkable winning streak.
Rollins' year was highlighted by his inauguration as World Champion, alongside his involvement in some of the year's most intense storylines. In 100 matches, Rollins secured 79 victories, faced 20 defeats, and encountered one draw, thus achieving an impressive 79% win rate.
This outstanding performance positions him as the superstar with the second-highest number of wins for the year. Sami Zayn's 2023 journey is also noteworthy. Breaking away from The Bloodline to become a beloved top babyface, Zayn not only main-event WrestleMania 39 but also held the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship.
His potential as a World Champion has been undeniable. Out of 89 matches, Zayn won 60, lost 27, and had two draws, resulting in a 67.4% win rate. This solid track record earns him the third spot among WWE's most victorious superstars in 2023.
As WWE continues to evolve and excite, the achievements of these wrestlers not only highlight their talents but also underscore the dynamic and ever-changing landscape of professional wrestling. Their victories and storylines will undoubtedly be remembered as some of the most defining moments of WWE in 2023.
