WWE Superstar Natalya Now Has 6 Professional Wrestling Guinness World Records
The WWE RAW Superstar Natalya was presented with six certificates ahead of Money in the Bank 2023.
While the WWE Universe may consider Superstars like Rhea Ripley, Asuka, Becky Lynch, and Bianca Belair the pillars of the women's division, one athlete unquestionably stands above them all – and she has the certificates to prove it!
Ahead of Money in the Bank 2023 in London, Guinness World Records presented RAW Superstar Natalya with six certificates, staking claim to some impressive world records, something no other WWE Superstar can boast. When you have the longevity that Natalya has (she made her WWE debut in 2007), you're bound to embark down historic territory. On July 1, Guinness World Records finally made it official.
How many Guinness World Records Does Natalya Hold?
After RAW, Natalya has six Guinness World Records. Unsurprisingly, Natalya was thrilled with the news, and she accepted her certificates with an authentically Nattie response.
"This is such an amazing surprise – I'm going to need more luggage to take these home!" she told the Guinness representative.
WWE's official Instagram account also revealed the physical struggle of receiving six Guinness World Records certificates, a struggle no one else on Earth can relate to except Natalya!
According to the most prestigious world record-keeping organization in the world, Natalya holds six distinct records:
Most WWE matches (female) – 1,514
Most WWE wins in a career (female) – 663
Most WWE PLE appearances (female) – 75
Most WWE WrestleMania appearances (female) – 8
Most WWE RAW matches – 174
Most WWE SmackDown matches – 200
Many of Natalya's records are better appreciated when put in perspective. For example, she has doubled the lifetime WWE matches that Charlotte Flair has. Her all-time win record will also be challenging for any female Superstar to catch up to. Charlotte trails her by more than 200 wins, and Becky Lynch is behind Natalya by nearly 300 victories! There's something to be said about longevity in sports. If you do it long enough, you'll end up with some seriously impressive records. And the best part? By all reports, Natalya isn't close to hanging up her boots, meaning she can keep adding to these impressive numbers.
Unfortunately, Natalya didn't compete at Money in the Bank this year, so her Premium Live Event appearance tally stayed at 75. Hey, there's always SummerSlam!
There is, however, one category that Natalya will sadly most likely never have a chance to hold the Guinness World Record in, most championships. With only three women's titles (one of them a tag team championship reign) on her resume, it remains to be seen whether her impressive longevity will mean more in the eyes of the WWE Universe than individual accolades and titles.
Natalya Finds Herself With Another Championship Opportunity
Fortunately, on the July 3 edition of Monday Night RAW, Natalya has a golden opportunity in the form of a WWE Women's World Championship match against reigning champion Rhea Ripley. It will serve as Natalya's best chance to hold the ever-elusive women's title that has escaped her for the majority of her career. Despite failing to capture the gold from Rhea at May's Night of Champions event, she has another crack at dethroning the Eradicator, and this time, we hope she believes in herself a little more! It doesn't help that Rhea seems to have Natalya's number every time they cross paths, though:
You never know; the Canadian-born Superstar could find herself celebrating the Fourth of July early with the rest of America if she can pull off the upset of the year against Rhea Ripley! We'd have to think that any of Natalya's self-doubt has been – ahem, eradicated – after receiving six Guinness World Records certificates, right?
We'll be rooting for Nattie on RAW, but win or lose, Natalya has the hardware that proves she is one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time, male or female. Knowing where you stand as an all-timer sometimes means more than another championship reign.
