So forget what I posted earlier today (I need to stop drinking at work) about Kane tying Bret Hart's record for most consecutive WrestleManias with a match.
He didn't tie Bret's record last night. He BROKE it.
Bret competed at 12 WrestleManias in a row, from 2 to 13. Kane has now competed at 13 in a row - from 14 to 26.
Triple H is third, having appeared in 11 consecutive Manias (from 12 to 22) before a quad injury sidelined him for Mania 23 in 2007. To date, as part of his streak, Undertaker has appeared in 10 in a row, dating back to 2001.
Setting a record like this takes incredible longevity and consistency. Congrats to Glen "Kane" Jacobs on a WrestleMania record that quite possibly will never be broken.
(And I apologize for my earlier math error; good thing someone else does my taxes)
