Top 10 Potential WWE UK Competitors

Who would have thought just 6 months ago that WWE would have it’s own UK division, and an absolutely beautiful United Kingdom championship to go with it. This truly is a treat for fans around the world, not just in the UK, as we all get to witness some incredible talent on a much more regular basis. We’ve already seen the likes of Tyler Bate, Pete Dunne, Mark Andrews, and Wolfgang show off their craft within the WWE realm, but there are still plenty of incredible independent talents around the UK that need a worldwide platform to show off their abilities. With a weekly UK show starting on the WWE Network, there’s no better time than now for WWE to recruit some new stars from these isles, and these are the best of the best. Here are the Top 10 Potential WWE UK Competitors.

Kris Travis: A Fallen Warrior

Back in 2013, I was considerably less hairy, and a freshly single fan of the graps. To my delight, I started chatting casually to a beautiful woman who also just happened to like wrestling. She attended all of these cool indie shows, and talked about all these wrestlers I’d never heard of. At the time, I had barely dipped my toe into the re-emerging British scene, so in order to ‘impress’ someone I had absolutely no chance in hell with, I decided to educate myself a little. Out of all of the wrestlers she talked about, one name seemed to be mentioned again and again and again, so obviously I had to see what all of the fuss was about. His name was Kris Travis: he was handsome, had a fantastic physique, tattoos on his chest, and the girl I fancied was in love with him, so obviously, I fucking hated him. But over time, as we inevitably drifted further and further apart, and my interest in the British wrestling scene began to flower, my unjust hatred towards Travis subsided, and I began to realise how talented he was.

Doug Williams – An Underrated Legend

When people talk about the legends of British wrestling, the same crop of competitors are always brought up: Davey Boy Smith, William Regal, Johnny Saint, Rollerball Rocco, Big Daddy, Dynamite Kid, Mick McManus, among others. But in this long list of legendary talent, one name always seems to be wrongfully omitted. Perhaps it’s because he is yet to work for WWE, or because he wasn’t grappling in the days of World of Sport, or simply because he is yet to hang up his boots, but in my opinion, Doug Williams is one of the most underappreciated, criminally underrated wrestlers in not just Britain, but in the entire wrestling world.

Five Reasons Why the WWE UK Championship Tournament Will Be Amazing

I’d like to say that the WWE UK Championship is a dream come true, but in all honesty this is such an unlikely concept that I could never have even dreamt of this ever happening. For years, the UK has been pleading for another PPV emanating from our shores, but who knew that after a long wait, our patience would be awarded with not only our very own tournament and weekly show, but our own championship as well (and what a beautiful championship it is).

There aren’t many things that leave me in a state of shock, but this certainly did. The possibilities and potential for this tournament are immense, and could lead to some incredible matches, amazing moments, and world-class signings. So if you’re not already extremely excited for this major event in UK wrestling history, and convinced it will be utterly epic, why the hell not?!!!! Not to worry though, I have five whole reasons why the WWE UK Championship Tournament will be amazing.

Top 15 Wrestle Crate UK Items

I love a bit of merch. We all do; we want to show our support for our favourite wrestlers and promotions. The problem is that there’s so much beautiful merchandise out there, yet so little money in my wallet. Yet, no matter how light they may leave our pockets, we just cannot resist treating ourselves from time to time.
