10 Wrestlers With The Most WWE Ladder Matches Ever

1. Christian - 18

Rob Van Dam Jeff Hardy Ladder Match 2002

Yes, the man who has competed in the most ladder matches in World Wrestling Entertainment is none other than Captain Charisma himself, Christian. His statistics aren't particularly skewed either. Christian has taken part in the second highest number of traditional ladder matches (behind Jeff Hardy), he is joint-second in Money in the Bank appearances (with Kofi with six) and sits behind only Edge and Jeff Hardy when it comes to TLC bouts.

Christian is the MVP of ladder matches in WWE over the years, but the truth is he has experienced little in the way of success. Of his 18 ladder match appearances, Christian has only been successful at the top of the ladder on five occasions (twice in TLC bouts, twice in singles matches and once in a tag team ladder match). That gives him just a 27% success rate over the years.

Christian's biggest moment of success came at the top of a ladder however, when he clambered up the rungs in 2011 to defeat Alberto Del Rio and claim his very first World Championship in WWE. Sure, he lost it just a few days later to Randy Orton, but for a few moments the ladder presented the greatest of redemptions to Christian.


Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can get that and others from www.poshlostbooks.com.
