You've missed WWF Junior Champion Mark Rocco Wink

I think Regal & Bulldog have legacies in wrestling that put them out of reach of the WWE UK boys atm though there's every chance they'll catch up given how good they are so young

Neville is one of the most talented wrestlers in the world, let alone of British talent, and has added character in the WWE too. Ignore the biased couple of Scots who will walk into this thread and add Drew McGallintyre Whistle

Went for Regal on this one - as his career was a standout across an era I watched whereas Bulldog and Dynamite were before my time.

It would be interesting to see a poll like this for non-native English speakers in WWE and who can be considered to have had the "best" career in the 'E..

Greedy is right about Regal and Bulldog though, however good Bate and Dunne showed themselves as at their Takeover bout, Regal and Bulldog (the latter most likely to be forgotten/misremembered) are a level above at the moment.

I also haven't seen enough of Dynamite Kid to really argue either way; I know his talent is talked about as another level, but whether you'd argue WWE/F saw that over his troubles is arguable

Planning to do a similar poll with Asian Wrestlers in the coming weeks

Regal is a ring general and master of psychology.  Cant think of anyone you'd rather pick to work in the performance centre.

Voted Drew partially because he's my boy but mostly because hes a model professional.  Instead of coasting on past glories when he was released he went back into the indies, won titles everywhere he went, made the world notice and prove WWE wrong to the point he's just been giving the NXT title.

Neville was my third vote because like Dolph's already said he is a legit top talent.  Carries the whole cruiserweight division and has had incredible matches with the likes of Cena and Rollins in the past.

Dont understand the bulldog hype. If he wasnt British he would be regarded as just another Roid monster. Didnt really do anything in either WWF or WCW outside of Hart based storylines.

Harsh on Bulldog, he was one of the top 5-10 workers consistently in WWF for most of the 90s

McIntyre's Indy work was exemplary but he didn't work for the trendy Indy companies in the US or U.K. so went under the radar some what

It's been interesting to see the different generations of fans vote

I started watching in 1992 so have great memories of Bulldog - I also voted Regal and my common fav Mean Neville

I used more of a narrative to make the question sound natural!

I do think generally those who'd have replied to that will have been people who cared about him though so you aren't missing the core, meta opinion!

Very harsh on Bulldog, he was a temendous athlete and incredibly agile for someone of his muscle mass, his tag team with Dynamite was something else, such a great team they just upped the standards, then when he came back as a singles guy it coincided with SKY hitting the UK and the WWF being a regular household show, it might seem implausible now but in 91/92 the Bulldog was the British version of Hogan, the public absolutely loved him and you often saw his face on posters and billboards and he was a major reason SummerSlam 92 was held in Wembley.

A great worker and a very good character, If he didn't get fired in late 92 there's every chance he could've become a World Champion given the lack of depth in that department and considering Owen Hart joined Bret in the Main Event... everyone in the 80s early 90s was a roid monster to be fair.
