Since it debuted in 1993, WWE RAW has consistently ranked at the highest level of the pro-wrestling television programmes. The programme, also known as Monday Night Raw, is one of WWE’s two premier offerings, along with Friday Night SmackDown. The largest of the superstars have been on it throughout its historic history, making it one of the most prominent weekly shows in professional wrestling.
The show has seen a variety of workhorses give their all on Monday nights, from The Undertaker and Mick Foley to Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. Few stars from the legendary cast of the red brand during these three decades have distinguished themselves from the rest in that they have appeared on the programmes more frequently than anyone else.
One of the most well-known wrestling stars of the twenty-first century is John Cena. Cena possessed everything, including unrivaled promo abilities and incredible strength. It might come as a bit of a shock to learn that Cena’s first bout on the red brand didn’t occur until June 2005, nearly three years after his WWE debut.
But he quickly rose to prominence as the face of programming. The Leader of Cenation made sure that the RAW he appeared in was worth seeing by participating in tag team matches with his opponents and the audience favourite US Championship Open Challenge. He competed in his most recent RAW match in January 2019. He nevertheless continues to be the red brand champion with the most victories.
One of the most prominent personalities to battle on WWE RAW week in and week out is Triple H, who is now the man in charge of the show. He competed in his debut match on the programme in 1995 while going by the name Hunter Hearst Helmsley. Despite the fact that the bell never rang, WWE does not formally recognise his encounter against Randy Orton in 2021 as his final on the red brand and throughout his whole career, according to many fans. He defeated Dolph Ziggler in his final official bout on the red brand, which was also his final successful title defense, at Road to WrestleMania 32.
One of the most well-known wrestlers in the world right now is without a doubt Chris Jericho. He quickly changed Raw is War into Raw is Jericho, making his WWE RAW debut one to remember. After that, he continued to improve, eventually winning several programming awards.
The List of Jericho, which became an instant fan favourite, was something he boasted about during his final run on the red brand. Jericho and Dean Ambrose partnered up for their final RAW battle in 2017. The Miz is rapidly approaching the sad record held by Y2J for the most losses in the show’s history.
When he was in WWE, Kane was a superb workhorse. His stature and domination typically make him an uncommon sight in contests. The Big Red Machine, who frequently appeared on the red brand to terrorize his opponents, was an exception to this rule. In August 1995, Kane made his RAW debut as Isaac Yankem DDS. In March 1998, he faced Stone Cold Steve Austin in his debut match on the programme after donning the Devil’s Favorite Demon mask. The match resulted in a no-contest.
Randy Orton joined WWE in 2002 and hasn’t looked back since, becoming one of the biggest workhorses in the history of the organization. Given how well-known he is, Orton performing each week on the red brand prior to his injury in 2022 is a remarkable accomplishment. Given his dedication to the sport, Orton might exceed John Cena in terms of the number of triumphs on Monday Night Raw. Additionally, completing 500 matches appears to be a record only for The Legend Killer.
