is 2013 the year of the roll up win in the WWE?

I cant remember a year in which more matches in the WWE have had more finishes with a roll up or non finisher than 2013

On a side note, how many heels ever win with a roll up?

Can't say I've noticed there being more roll up wins than there used to be. Back when K2 was Divas Champ there MIGHT have been a few more of those around...

It's simply to reinforce the fact that it can happen.

I remember one year, I think it was 2008 or 2009, you wouldn't believe for a moment that anyone would win via roll-up. Thus, the roll-up itself was too predictable and wouldn't actually warrant any investment in the match.

Ryback's only PPV win (against a named wrestler) was as a heel with a wuss roll up.

So there's. . .one.

In the past though, heels won with roll ups all the time. Especially with the "pulling the tights" spot, or putting their legs on the ropes for "leverage" to "steal a win".
