Which Top WWE Wrestlers Were Born in Ohio?
The state of Ohio has been the birthplace of a good number of professional wrestlers. From the legendary Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage to Perry Saturn, Al Snow and Bobby Fulton. The current WWE roster also has a lot to thank Ohio for. Those included on this list will be doing all they can in January 2023 to earn title shots at WrestleMania 39 in April. It will be possible to bet on favorites in top sports events from January 1, 2023, according to sports betting aggregator Ohio.Bet.
Alexa Bliss was born in Columbus, Ohio and has won several titles in WWE. To say she’s had an interesting career is a massive understatement. Bliss may be only 155cm high and weigh 46 kg but never take her lightly.
Her target in January will be to win the Women’s Royal Rumble on January 28. Doing so will earn her a title shot at WrestleMania. The past few years have been rather interesting for Bliss. One crazy storyline saw her team up with The Fiend and somehow gain supernatural powers. Then there was her association with a demonic doll called ‘Lily.’
Thankfully those storylines are history now. 2022 has seen Bliss win and lose the tag team titles. 2023 will hopefully see her win the Raw Women’s title for the first time since 2018
Another Ohio wrestler who has had a great deal of success in WWE is Dolph Ziggler. He was born in Cleveland and fell in love with professional wrestling when attending matches at the Richfield Coliseum.
After a successful amateur career, he joined WWE in 2004. His time in the company has seen him win many titles. He’s been the world heavyweight champion on two occasions, won tag team titles and earlier this year, he held the NXT title.
He may not be in the title picture at present but always seems to be involved in some feud or another. January 2023 will see him attempting to win the Royal Rumble and give him the chance to get more gold around his waist.
His life isn’t all about professional wrestling though. He’s also a stand-up comedian and an actor.
One wrestler born in Ohio who is likely to play a prominent role in WWE in the coming months is The Miz.. He was born in Parma and like Zigger, has been in WWE since 2004. He’s been in the main event at WrestleMania in the past and has held the WWE title twice in the past.
He’s another WWE performer who has found success away from the wrestling ring. Along with his wife Maryse (also a wrestler), he stars in the reality TV series ‘Miz & Mrs.’ The Miz has appeared in several movies and also in ‘Dancing With the Stars’
The Miz has feuded with everyone from Bad Bunny to John Cena. With his outlandish costumes and continual high opinion of himself, he’s one of the most irritating villains in WWE history.
Born in Seven Hills, Ohio, Dana Brooke has had a varied career. The 34-year-old has been a gymnast, bodybuilder and fitness competitor. and in the past year held the now discontinued WWE 24/7 title on 15 occasions. That’s a bizarre WWE title that has been held by everyone from Bad Bunny to Santa Claus (honestly he won the belt). Next year sees her celebrate 10 years in WWE
