** The Women's Championship is often defended in multiple-woman matches. In 2002 Jazz defends against Lita and Trish Stratus. In 2003 Victoria defends against Trish and Jazz. In 2014 AJ Lee against ''every woman on the roster'' (that's thirteen to be specific). In 2016 Charlotte against Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch. In 2017 (with two titles now) Bayley against Charlotte, Sasha and Nia Jax - and Alexa Bliss against Naomi, Natalya, Becky Lynch, Carmella and Mickie James.
* OnceASeason: Wrestling/TheUndertaker takes on a legend or main event superstar and wins, an honor perhaps greater that being World Champion multiple times. Until 2014, he had ''never'' lost at the event, defeating the likes of Wrestling/JimmySnuka, Wrestling/JakeRoberts, Giant Gonzalez, Wrestling/KingKongBundy, [[Wrestling/KevinNash Diesel]], [[Wrestling/SidEudy Sycho Sid]], Wrestling/{{Kane}}, Wrestling/BigBossMan, Wrestling/TripleH, Wrestling/RicFlair, Wrestling/TheBigShow and [[Wrestling/MattBloom A-Train]], Kane again, Wrestling/RandyOrton, Wrestling/MarkHenry, Wrestling/{{Batista}}, Wrestling/{{Edge}}, Wrestling/ShawnMichaels (twice), Triple H again (twice), and Wrestling/CMPunk. And then ''[=WrestleMania=] XXX'' [[Wrestling/BrockLesnar came]]... Fortunately he rebounded the next [[Wrestling/BrayWyatt two]] [[Wrestling/ShaneMcMahon years]], but wasn't so lucky come [[Wrestling/RomanReigns 2017]]

** When Undertaker was set to face Triple at ''[=WrestleMania=] XXVII'', they pretended that Triple H and 'Taker had never wrestled before. 'Taker said that he had "beaten 19 men" at ''[=WrestleMania=]'', when he had faced Wrestling/{{Kane}} and Wrestling/ShawnMichaels twice. He had said "18 men have come..." on the promo the previous year, which was accurate up until the second time he faced Michaels, with his two matches against Kane being balanced by the fact that one of his matches was a two-on-one handicap.

** 31: Wrestling/SethRollins cashes in his Money in the Bank and defeated Wrestling/BrockLesnar and Wrestling/RomanReigns to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Unlike the previous examples, this doesn't really count as a DownerEnding--because the fans were a) ''extremely'' negative towards Reigns and b) a little weary of Lesnar's absentee championship run, the usually hated heel Rollins was mostly cheered.

* InvincibleHero: Wrestling/TheUndertaker's track record at ''[=WrestleMania=]'' is likely never to be topped: he was not defeated in his first 21 matches he wrestled at the event. (In an odd reversal, Undertaker and Wrestling/ShawnMichaels' match at ''[=WrestleMania=] XXV'', which was perhaps 2009's Match of the Year, was 'Taker's first one-on-one victory over Michaels.) Of course, after ''[=WrestleMania=] XXX'', Undertaker's record read 21''1'', thanks to one Brock Lesnar. As of ''[=WrestleMania=] 32'', Taker's record stands at 231.
