When you talk of pro wrestling, one family, in particular, has left an indelible mark on the sport through the illustrious list of athletes it has produced. We are talking about none other than the esteemed ‘Hart Wrestling Family’, which has churned out legends like Bret Hart and the late Owen Hart to name a few.

This family has dominated the wrestling world all through the 80s and 90s. And now another Hart family member received her legendary status by being presented with 6 Guinness World Records!

Natalya is the niece of WWE Hall Of Famer Bret Hart and the late Owen Hart. So awards and accolades are not a surprise for this superstar. She has been with the WWE for 15 years now. She has been a two-time Women’s World Champion and also raised the Divas Championship and SmackDown Women’s Championship once each. But while conquering these milestones, she has also toppled many wrestling records along the way.

And recently Guinness World Records awarded her with 6 pro wrestling records all at once at the MITB event in London. Natalya posted a picture on her Instagram and wrote, “These kinds of stats paint the picture that I want for my legacy, long after I’m done. Each one of these records was attained while trying my hardest to build a division, not a person. That’s the greatest lesson my dad, my uncles and my grandfather taught me. Wrestling is a singles sport you can’t do on your own. 🤼‍♀️.”

She also revealed that revered pop singer Shakira served as an inspiration, as she once got 14 Guinness World records for her excellence in music. Natalya added, “Thank you @guinnessworldrecords for the amazing surprise yesterday in London! Truly made my day!!!!! Also, I was trying to channel my inner @shakira when this pic was taken yesterday (swipe right!)😜”

But this is not the first time that Natalya has broken a Guinness World Record.

Natalya received her first Guinness World Record at Survivor Series

Back in 2021, Natalya set a record by appearing for the 68th time on a pay-per-view at Survivor Series, the most by any female wrestler. The same night, Randy Orton also received the record for most pay-per-view appearances by a male wrestler. He appeared in 177 PPVs, breaking the previous record held by the Big Red Machine Kane.

But circling back to Natalya’s achievements, below are the respective Guinness World Records she has broken in her prestigious WWE career.

Most WWE matches (female) – 1,514

Most WWE wins in a career (female) – 663

Most WWE PLE appearances (female) – 75

Most WWE WrestleMania appearances (female) – 8

And doesn’t seem like these are going to be the last records to her name. Come Monday at RAW, Natalya will face ‘The Judgement Day’s’ Rhea Ripley for the Women’s World Championship. If she succeeds, she will be a three-time Women’s World Champion, a far cry from Charlotte Flair’s record of 14. But there is always scope for improvement and only time will tell if she can topple this Guinness Record as well. What do you make of the achievements secured by the legendary female wrestler?
