Top 5 UK and Ireland Wrestlers to Make It in WWE

Before professional wrestling was a big money business in the USA, it packed out community halls, stadiums and theaters across the Atlantic in good old "Blighty" and The Emerald Isle.

Names like Giant Haystacks were well known across the country and people seemed excited by the action on offer. It was nothing like the product of today, no pyro, no high-flying, little weapons, and it was focused mainly around "real" wrestling moves. People loved it nonetheless. 

Interest in wrestling died down and English companies found it difficult to fill out halls with the advent of Sky television. The WWE was a massive hit on Sky and once people saw the over-the-top storylines, daredevil moves and exciting matches, the English product looked stale by comparison.

Only a few have ventured from these shores to pursue a career at the top end of the business and in this list I will give you my top five, who not only have made the journey but also enjoyed success. 

If I have left anybody out, or if you disagree, then please do comment; nothing like a good old fashioned debate after all!
