Which wrestler has wrestled the most different opponents? I'd have guessed Jerry Lawler, but looking through wrestlingdata, I found 2 that had him beat.

Lawler has 973 opponents listed. I found 1 man that broke the 1000 mark, and one that has had one more opponent than Lawler. Anyone want to take a guess?

Just from longevity and places worked, I'd guess Ricky Morton. He worked practically every major American promotion/territory plus Japan plus indies for 45 years.

Mil Mascaras has to be up there

Per the sames site, Morton has 925 and Mascaras 712.

But the most interesting thing I learned from that site is that Jerry Lawler is 0-1 against Gentle Ben the Wrestling Bear.

I'll take a stab at Chris Jericho being one of them.

Regal had a long career, and travelled a lot so maybe him?? Was a WCW tag champ too I think

Regal only 473, generally anyone who spent a large proportion of their career in post 2001 WWE does not rank highly.

Terry Gordy? He started young and moved around a lot.

Juventud Guerrera did too. But a lot of those sites won't have comprehensive coverage of Mexican indies.

Dave Taylor? But perhaps the site doesn't have a comprehensive list of 80s UK house shows.

If you presume the promotions that wrestlingdata has are the more prominent territories,and the clue, I’d say Greg Valentine, working in WWF, JCP and Northeast indies who records have been catalogued. 

Valentine is correct, 1003 listed opponents.

Yeah, i could see the real answer someone like Satanico, 50 year career, working anywhere from 6 to 10 matches a week. 

Satanico - 403

 

I've no doubt plenty of results for Lucha and old-school British wrestling are missing from the site. But those guys fought the same opponents many many times, rather than different opponents a few times.
