The Undefeated SummerSlam streak of James Harrison is an ongoing winning streak established by WWE wrestler James Harrison at the companies second biggest pay-per-view SummerSlam. It began in 1998 when Harrison defeated Stone Cold Steve Austin and the most recent win came in 2016 where he defeated Matthew Harrison to extend the streak to 20–0. Throughout the streak Harrison has only face CM Punk on multiple occasions. To date 17 of his 19 opponents have won a world title, he has also faced four Hall of Famers. He had two matches in 2013 after cashing-in his Money in the Bank contract.

Harrison personally described his streak as not as important as The Undertaker's due to the fact that his is not at WrestleMania.
