Drew McIntyre tops the list of the British wrestlers. He is the first-ever British Royal Rumble Winner, WWE Champion, and WrestleMania main eventer. Quite the achievement for a wrestler who was let go by the company. This just goes to show that if you have a steely determination to do something, no wall is too high to scale.

Another British superstar who has achieved great heights in the company is Nikki Cross, a.k.a Nikki A.S.H. She is the first Brit Money in the Bank Holder. Along with this, she is also the first British to hold either of the two Women’s (current) Championships. She went from being a mid card act to a superhero and won the Raw Women’s Championship. What a journey!

WWE has more

The list doesn’t end here. There are many more British wrestlers making history in the company. Pete Dunne and Danny Burch are also on the list. Have a look.

WWE even has its own NXT UK where upcoming British wrestlers are born. The most prominent example is Piper Niven a.k.a. Doudrop. She debuted with WWE superstar Eva Marie on her return to Raw.

Doudrop has fought many matches in place of Eva Marie with the latter taking credit for all. We don’t think the British fans would like that very much.
