39 Best Wrestlers From 39 Different Countries

Breaking down the greatest superstars of all time, country by country.


Many may see North America as the be-all and end-all when it comes to the wrestling industry - and in fairness, Vince McMahon's WWE is easily the biggest promotion in the world - but that's not to say that the wrestling talent pool is confined simply to North American soil.

Over the years, the wrestling business has seen a whole host of wrestlers from every corner of the globe make some sort of impression. Sure, some of them outright sucked, but at least they were representing their homeland and bringing some form of diversity to the table. Others would reach legendary status and see their careers cemented as iconic.

Whilst many foreigners were often considered villainous heels when on other lands, not all of them were there merely to be treated as fodder for flag-waving heroes such as Hulk Hogan or John Cena.

Pulling out our trusty atlas and spanning the globe, let's take a look at the best superstars that 39 countries have had to offer to date. And just to make it clear, residency and billed-from don't cut it here - this is all about where a talent was born.
