I heard it too on Monday and was JUST bored enough to research further...

Plus, I'm pretty sure he collected a few losses from his NXT*/AdR's bodyguard days, but for purposes of kayfabe, I believe they started counting from that period of time last year when he had a squash match on every episode of "Superstars" for about two months.

Problem is...I get more than 22-0 doing that.

(thanks to The Internet Wrestling Database (profightdb.com) for help compiling these results)

1-0 Superstars Aug 4th 2011 Brodus Clay def. Pat Silva
2-0 Superstars Aug 11th 2011 Brodus Clay def. Aaron James
3-0 Superstars Aug 18th 2011 Brodus Clay def. Jose Vargas
4-0 Superstars Aug 25th 2011 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Pete Gibson
5-0 Superstars Sep 1st 2011 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Brandon James
6-0 Superstars Sep 8th 2011 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Allen Turner
7-0 Superstars Sep 15th 2011 Brodus Clay def. Mike Palmer
8-0 Superstars Sep 22nd 2011 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Joey Gray
9-0 Superstars Sep 29th 2011 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Brian Thomas

Here was our long break, including weeks of "Brodus Clay is coming!" hype

Finally, the Funkasaurus "debuted..."

27-0 Over the Limit May 20th 2012 Brodus Clay def. (pin) The Miz (2)

Maybe they didn't count PPV matches? Maybe they didn't count non-pinfall victories? Maybe they just weren't as thorough as some dude on the Internet was? Yeah, probably that one.

Oh, and...after further review...

RAW May 28th 2012 Brodus Clay (literally no contest) The Big Show

*actually - interestingly - at the time, somebody had the foresight to not book Clay into a SINGLE one on one defeat while he was on NXT! And yet he still didn't win his season.

He WAS pinned twice as Alberto del Rio's bodyguard, however - his first loss was to Christian (RAW 3/7/11) and he was also pinned by then-WHC Edge (Smackdown 3/18/11) in the leadup to the Edge/AdR WrestleMania (and Edge's "final") match

Finally, on FCW shows, he appears to be Percy Watson's bitch, but I can't confirm or deny that as I've never seen the show.

I would assume they're counting just from when he "debuted" as the dancing guy. So any Superstars tapings before then wouldn't be counted either. It still doesn't add up, but at least it's closer?

Also, that last match with the Big Show shouldn't be a NC should it? I mean, Big Show never entered the ring, and the bell was never rung to start it.

Therefore it was a No Contest, since there was no contest. Right?

Well, if we throw out 2011 completly that makes 18-0.

I guess we could add the dark matches from TV tapings in 2012, but that would make it 23-0, which is still wrong:

Smackdown! Taping
Jan 31st 2012 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Heath Slater dark

RAW Taping
Feb 6th 2012 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Damien Sandow dark

Smackdown! Taping
Feb 7th 2012 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Damien Sandow dark

Smackdown! Taping
Mar 13th 2012 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Epico dark

RAW Taping
Mar 19th 2012 Brodus Clay def. (pin) Michael McGillicutty dark

Also, it would mean Damien Sandow WOULDN'T be undefeated (or does Sandow already have blemishes on his record due to his earlier forfeits?)

Oh, I dunno...

Oh, wait, I probably should have gone to wwe.com first:

    Originally posted by WWE, in this story (wwe.com)

So we have the 21 matches in 2012 (INCLUDING the ones that weren't singles matches) and obviously we've missed one somewhere. (I guess?)

EDIT: And it must be the dance off versus Vickie Guerrero. There you go.

I always thought for there to be a No Contest, that you needed to at least start the match. Match starts, a bunch of nonsense happens. Maybe they do an injury angle, a ton of people run in, something else weird happens, etc. The ref never rings the bell to end it, and so they can't say DQ or countout or w/e.

Just seems weird to me that a match that never starts can have an ending. Something very philosophical about that.

Excuse me! What time did you want to start the last fight?
There is no last fight! There were ten! You lost! Give it up!
The bet was ten, but your man only fought nine.
What are you talking about? Your kid punked out. He forfeited. A forfeit counts, didn't you know that?
Of course it counts, when there's a forfeit. But, in this case, there's no forfeit because Robby never entered the ring.
What kind of kindergarten bullshit is this?

Ironically, WWE has one guy on Smackdown getting 'Goldberg!' chants, and someone else on Raw whose undefeated streak has a number attached to it.

Whew! Thanks for clearing that up.

You can't just go throwing numbers like that out and not expect people to get curious.
