The Wrestling Observer compiled the complete win and loss stats for every wrestler under the WWE umbrella. This includes NXT and 205 Live. Every match from every live event, television taping, and Pay-Per-View was tabulated. There was a lot of wrestling last year. Some talent worked over 150 times while others worked less than 10. The numbers vary wildly due to injury, storylines, use on television and live events, and wrestlers leaving the company for one reason or another.
