8 WWE NXT UK Stars Who Could Eventually Thrive On WWE's Main Roster

8. Mark Andrews


Despite being on the smaller side, Mark Andrews is an absolute treat to watch whenever he steps in the ring.

Prior to competing in the inaugural WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament in January 2017 (where he had a solid showing before losing to Pete Dunne in the semifinals), Andrews wrestled in Chikara, PROGRESS, and most notably IMPACT Wrestling. He didn't do much of note there at all, which is why him leaving for WWE when he did was the best thing he could have done.

He's been a constant in the NXT UK division since the start. Although that has yet to translate to championship gold for him, he's had some stellar matches with the likes of Dunne, Fabian Aichner and Noam Dar.

Andrews has also had a fun tandem going in recent months with Flash Morgan Webster, but he's a strong enough underdog babyface to shine on his own when the time comes for him to be moved up to the main roster. Raw is already loaded with high-fliers at the moment between Ricochet, Cedric Alexander and Rey Mysterio, so he'd be a perfect fit on SmackDown Live.

Andrews has made a handful of appearances on 205 Live over the years, but it's clear he has a higher ceiling than that.
