Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the Iron Man award for 2019 goes to Ricochet. He worked 159 matches while Baron Corbin came in second place with 156 matches. 

In previous years, top stars for the company would routinely top 200 matches. As recently as 2018, Finn Balor worked 180 matches and Shinsuke Nakamura and Corbin at 175.
