10 WWE Wrestlers Who Never Tapped Out

Winners never quit.

Tapping out is seen as a massive personal failing in the kayfabe world of WWE, even though - in real life - admitting that you have a normal human pain threshold is clearly preferable to getting your arm snapped like a twig because you were too proud to quit.

Despite this, most of the company's top stars have, at one point or another, been made to submit. Triple H tapped at WrestleMania XX. Brock Lesnar gave up at SummerSlam 2003. Even John Cena, the walking embodiment of wrestling's never say die spirit, was forced to break the habit of lifetime during his early days by Kurt Angle.

While each of the aforementioned are guilty of bringing shame upon their families, a handful of others have managed to avoid this fate, going the entirety of their WWE career (at least, so far) without once giving up like a little baby.

Note: the case of The Undertaker is a slightly dubious one, since most of the times he has "tapped out" there have been mitigating circumstances (for example, Teddy Long recreating the Screwjob at Breaking Point '09). On the basis that he has been beaten via submission, we're going to exclude him from the list.

10. Goldberg

You can almost count on one hand the number of times Goldberg has lost a match in WWE. In fact, you literally can count one finger the number of times he has lost a singles match.

Needless to say, none of these were as a result of submission. With the exception of his two Royal Rumble defeats - where he was eliminated by being thrown over the top rope (duh) - all of them came via pinfall.

Those pin-based losses were almost always preceded by shenanigans too. Triple H only got the better of him at SummerSlam 2003's Elimination Chamber, for instance, because of an illegal assist from a sledgehammer-wielding Ric Flair.

The only man who has ever beaten Goldberg clean in a WWE ring is Brock Lesnar, who dismantled the former WCW star in their Universal Championship match at WrestleMania 33. No submissions, though.
