The biggest WWE Live Event Ever in Australia, WWE Super Show-Down, is set to take place on October 6 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
With WWE slowly moving into more international markets and the unveiling of the NXT UK brand, the company has been hiring more and more wrestlers from Oceania.
We have collected information on all the current WWE wrestlers from down under, and ranked them based on their accomplishments, experience, popularity, and ability. We decided to only include wrestlers from Oceania and exclude those just of Oceanic descent.
7. The Mighty (Nick Miller & Shane Thorne)
At one point, this exciting duo, also known as The Mighty Don’t Kneel or TM-61 (not the Pokemon move ‘Will-O-Wisp’), were on the cusp of being NXT‘s next great tag team.
They lost to the Authors of Pain in the finals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic 2016 in an exciting match. Shane Thorne unfortunately suffered a knee injury and was rendered unable to compete, which left Nick Miller without a partner for about nine months.
Since Thorne’s return, the Mighty haven’t been able to muster up the same buzz around them that they once had.
6. Dakota Kai
Dakota Kai is one of the NXT wrestlers with the most potential. The Irish-Samoan New Zealander won the NXT Women’s Championship Invitational (2018) and has been a fan-favorite ever since the 2017 Mae Young Classic.
Kai has experienced increasingly impressive outings on NXT TV in the past couple of months, including great matches with the likes of Shayna Baszler and Bianca Belair.
5. The IIconics (Billie Kay and Peyton Royce)
You know their names, their antics, and especially their voices. The IIconics enjoyed great promos and matches in NXT (mostly against Asuka and Nikki Cross) and were winners of the NXT Breakout Star of the Year 2016 award. They even had a cool main roster debut in which they beat-down Charlotte Flair.
Following a tag team victory over Asuka and Becky Lynch a couple of months ago, the duo of Billie Kay and Peyton Royce haven’t done much or been seen on television very often. With the rumored WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships potentially coming very soon, they may see a resurgence in popularity.
The IIconics will take on the team of Asuka and Naomi in tag team action at WWE Super Show-Down.
