No Championship in sight, but Wade Barrett still managed to be crowned King of the Ring

In WWE’s recent heavyweight title reign history, you may be surprised that there are less than 10 different nationalities represented. Out of that, you will find 4 in North America, 3 in Europe, 2 in Asia, one in the Middle East, and surprisingly no countries represented from South America or Africa.

For WWE fans, seeing their highly rated compatriots grace the top spot in the WWE can be seen as a greater win than the World Cup. So as times change and WWE expand their market ever further forward into the global hub, it seems only right to highlight the 10 countries that deserve the highest of accolades. Some countries are well represented in the current ranks, yet other nations may feel hard done by that they have no representation at all, let alone a champion in the midst.

#1 The Netherlands

Aleister Black is blazing a path in NXT

With a population of 17 million and a huge WWE following, it is an easy assumption to find a wealth of extraordinary talent lying in wait. Well, it seems the WWE has only just tapped into it.

Aleister Black is the one hope for the Dutch. With huge experience behind him, he is tearing up the opposition in NXT. It won’t be long before the Tattooed enigma fires straight into the heavyweight title scene in the developmental territory. Ultimately, this could see his popularity grow and allow him to accomplish the equivalent feat on the main roster.
