We touched upon this on our “5 WWE WrestlersWho Are Avid Gamers” video.
Shelton Benjamin actually has an official Guinness World Recordfor having the highest number of wins in the WWE THQ Superstar Challenge tournament.
Thiswas an annual tournament set up by THQ, in which WWE superstars would compete to determinewho was the best SmackDown vs Raw player.
Shelton Benjamin has won the competition animpressive 4 times in a row and even voluntarily stepped out for his 5th potential title inorder to “…let somebody else get the chance to know what it’s like to be the champ”according to him.
If Benjamin and Woods do ever clash on UpUpDownDown, grab a front rowseat because it’s going to be a good one! Former WWE wrestler, AJ Lee achieved a GuinnessWorld Record back in 2012 for being the first female to win the annual WWE Superstar Challenge.
AJ Lee is actually an avid gamer so this challenge was right up her alley and without SheltonBenjamin around she was able to breeze through the competition.
AJ Lee scored a victory inthe opening round against Tamina and then another victory over The Punjabi Playboy,The Great Khali in the quarter finals.
In the semi-finals she defeated the IntercontinentalChampion at the time, Cody Rhodes before winning the finals against The World’s StrongestMan, Mark Henry in a five-minute contest.
The Chairman of the WWE, Vincent Kennedy McMahonachieved a world record by becoming the oldest person to win the then WWF Championship atthe age of 54.
Shortly after winning the 1999 Royal Rumble, Vince McMahon went on to faceTriple H for the then WWF Championship in a match, where Shane McMahon was special guestreferee.
Triple H dominated the match until The Texas Rattlesnake, Stone Cold Steve Austininterfered and performed a Stone Cold Stunner on Triple H.
He then dragged Vince’s batteredbody onto Triple H which allowed Shane McMahon to make a 3 count thus making Vince McMahonthe new WWF Champion, which he vacated on the following episode of RAW.
It is a common misconception to think thatthe youngest WWE champion was Randy Orton as he was the youngest WWE World HeavyweightChampion at 24 years old.
However, in actual fact it is the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnarwho is the youngest WWE Champion at the young age of 25.
He achieved this world record in2002 after defeating the WWE Undisputed Champion at the time, The Rock at SummerSlam not onlymaking him the youngest WWE champion in history but also the second fastest wrestler to winthe WWE championship just after Ric Flair.
Prior to his WWE Championship victory, Lesnaralso won the 2002 King of the Ring tournament just months after his debut.
Notbad at all! When you think of the kings and queens ofselfies, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and the Kardashian family all spring to mind but howabout Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? At the world premiere of the movie, San Andreas,The Rock attempted to set a new Guinness World Record with his fans for the most selfiestaken in three minutes and successfully did so.
The total number of accepted selfies hetook was 105 meaning he would have taken a selfie every two seconds.
He joked on twittersaying, “Helluva shoulder workout.
The Record has since been broken by DonnieWahlberg on the 21st October 2016.
He took 122 selfies in three minutes.
