Getting a win at WrestleMania is the highlight of many wrestlers’ careers. Winning on the Grandest Stage of Them All has launched careers, cemented legacies, and created moments that will live forever in wrestling history. But what about those wrestlers who lose? Over the years, far more wrestlers have emerged from WrestleMania with a big, fat “L” metaphorically hanging around their necks than have stood victoriously in front of massive fireworks displays and the adulation of the masses. You would think that such a huge loss would seriously affect their careers going forward. However, there have been several instances of wrestlers who lost at WrestleMania, and then instantly became far more successful afterwards. In fact, between WrestleMania 29 and 32, the wrestler who lost the second match to take place on the WrestleMania card ended up in the main event of the very next Pay Per View, which is an incredible bit of obscure trivia you can use to impress people. So if your favorite wrestler took a loss at this year’s show, don’t worry, it could just be the precursor to bigger and better things.
10. Ryback – WrestleMania XXIX
Ryback started off his WWE career as a pretty big deal, winning squash matches pretty easily, eventually working up to defeating multiple opponents at the same time. So when John Cena, who was challenging CM Punk for the WWE Title at Hell in a Cell, went down with an injury, Ryback was tapped as his emergency replacement. Unfortunately, being elevated to the main event sent Ryback into a bit of a tailspin, as he failed to dethrone Punk (who was in the middle of his legendary 434-day reign), then got embroiled in a war with The Shield that saw him come out on the losing end. By WrestleMania, he was on a significant streak of big losses, and there was concern that it had all been a case of “too much, too soon” for the Big Guy, which was underscored when he lost, unceremoniously, to Mark Henry in a meaningless undercard match on the show. However, the next night on Raw, Ryback shockingly turned heel and attacked John Cena, earning himself a series of WWE Title shots on Pay Per View over the next few months. While Ryback did not manage to wrest the title away from Cena, he did revitalize a career that had looked dangerously close to flaming out up to that point.http://www.cagesideseats.com/wwe-raw/2013/4/9/4204194/wwe-raw-results-and-reactions-from-last-night-april-8-wrestlemania-29-fallout Source: cagesideseats.com
