Welcome to another exciting edition of Blog Wars. Last week deadly56 reign came to an early end to Wade Barrett 1979. Could we see the start of the Barrett Barrage or will he lose to newcomer DBrocks.
Top 5 Foreign Wrestlers to wrestle in the USThis list is very broad but let's see how our competitors think for this one. Only rule is they must have wrestled for a MAJOR Promotion.
DBrocksThis is my first shot on a blog and I am happy to get the chance in Blog Wars so bear with me some.
5. Andre the Giant
Responsible for many great moments in the WWE. He is a true rags to riches story, coming from the farms in France to Wrestlemania. Even though he had a hard time with his size, he did the best he could in the ring traveling around the world for the fans.
4. Chris Jericho
One of the reasons WCW failed was because they didn't capitalize on talent like this. Jericho has proved that he is one best in business and is a well balanced guy which is rare.
3. The British Bulldog
One of the best guys to never win the World title. But even without it, he still had a great career with different singles titles and being apart of one of the best tag teams around. It's ashame we didn't get to see a comeback after his death.
2. William Regal
Another guy who never won the big one. Regal has trained many successful guys and is great in the ring. He has had many memorable moments with the WWE in the ring and outside of it.
1. Jimmy Snuka
Along with some very memorible moments in wrestling, Snuka is the first ECW champion and is responsible for bring the high flying style of wrestling to the WWE, paving the way for many guys to come in.
Wade Barrett 1979Thanks to everyone who voted for me the last time. I hope as many of you agree with my choices again.

Ivan was known to have an ongoing feud with another professional at the time, 'Superstar' Billy Graham over the WWF World Heavyweight Championship, who also had an incredible physique and strength, which led to many pose-downs, arm wrestling bouts, and long, physical matches between the two. Other rivals included Iron Sheik, Ivan Koloff, and Jesse 'The Body' Ventura, who when commentating for the WWF would refer to Putski as "Puduski" in much the same way he would later refer to Tito Santana as "Chico".
