While many in Australia might think that WWE simply stopped airing after they ceased being interested in what crazy antics Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock were up to week-to-week, the biggest wrestling promotion in the world has continued to roll out show after show every Monday night, thriving well beyond any awkward adolescent phases.

The truth is, quite a few of our own Australians have been finding significant success as professional wrestlers in the American promotion in the past few years, but it seems like a lot of people back home simply don't know anything about it. As a matter of public awareness, at Complex AU we decided to collate a list documenting the detailed history of Aussie wrestlers making it to the big smoke in the WWE – where they're from, what they did, and where they're at right now.

Let's strap on the boots and take an in-depth look at some of the Aussie pro wrestlers that have managed to make it to television debuts on WWE so far, and a few young grapplers that might just be the stars of the future.
