6 Canadian wrestlers currently in WWE
Over the years, WWE has been blessed with some of the best Canadian wrestlers; from the late wrestling legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, to Hall of Famers like Bret Hart, the late Owen Hart, Chris Benoit, and Trish Stratus, to name a few.
On the current roster, superstars like Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Natalya, Robert Roode, and Edge are testament to the constant influx of Canadian talent to WWE.
In this article, we look at 6 Canadian wrestlers from the current roster in WWE.
#6 Robert Roode – Canadian wrestler on the current WWE roster
A star of SmackDown Robert Roode hails from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. He started his career with Total Nonstop Wrestling (TNA) in 2004 having spent 12 years there winning multiple championships before moving to WWE in 2016.
In the WWE, Roode rose to fame as a former NXT Champion, and headlined the main roster as a United States Champion, Raw Tag Team Champion, 24×7 Champion and, more recently, as the SmackDown Tag Team Champion with his current partner Dolph Ziggler.
#5 Natalya – Canadian wrestler on the current WWE roster

Natalya, the daughter of the late Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart and niece of WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart, hails from Calgary, Alberta, Canada; the Sanctum of the Hart Dungeon.
Having debuted in WWE in 2008, Natalya has held her fair share of titles, from the Divas Championship in 2010 to the SmackDown Women’s Championship in 2017, making her the first woman in WWE to hold both these titles.
Natalya was also the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion with Tamina only to be beaten by Nikki A.S.H and Rhea Ripley this past Monday night on RAW.
#4 Sami Zyan – Canadian wrestler on the current WWE roster
Sami Zyan, a Canadian wrestler, currently works as a heel on SmackDown.
Born in Laval, Quebec, Canada, Sami is a former NXT Champion and two-time Intercontinental Champion.
His rivalry with real-life best friend, Kevin Owens, has been well documented this year with a showdown at WrestleMania 37 in which KO emerged victorious. Zyan got his revenge at Hell in a Cell with the rivalry culminating in the Last Man Standing match to qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match which was won by Owens.
#3 Kevin Owens – Canadian wrestler on the current WWE roster
Kevin Owens is currently a babyface on SmackDown. Born in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada, his feud with Roman Reigns last year was a compelling one.
A two-time Intercontinental Champion, three-time United States Champion, and former Universal Champion, KO, after losing to Reigns, wasn’t able to create enough traction with the WWE Universe as a babyface in his storyline with Zyan.
WWE could look to make him a heel again in the foreseeable future. A trait that fits him more naturally.
#2 Edge – Canadian wrestler on the current WWE roster
The Rated R Superstar is arguably one of the best Canadian wrestlers to ever step into a WWE ring. Born in Orangeville, Canada, Edge had one of the most remarkable comeback stories in WWE when he entered the 2020 Royal Rumble after a nine-year hiatus owing to a neck injury. He also beat Randy Orton at WrestleMania 36.
The four-time WWE champion, he won the 2021 Royal Rumble and went on to headline WrestleMania 37 in a triple threat match against Daniel Bryan and the Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.
Currently in a feud with Seth Rollins, the Rated R Superstar is still very much active on the SmackDown roster.
#1 Brock Lesnar – American-Canadian wrestler on the current WWE roster
Born in South Dakota, Brock Lesnar lived in Minnesota before moving to Saskatchewan, a province in Western Canada. It was a surprise for many fans who weren’t aware that Lesnar currently resides in Canada making him an American-Canadian wrestler.
A monster in the ring, The Beast Incarnate is a reserved individual as he likes to spend time on his farm in Saskatchewan. From hunting, to the tractors, to the quiet evenings, Lesnar enjoys tranquility when he’s away from the squared circle.
The five-time WWE champion and three-time Universal Champion will be in action against Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel 2021, looking to over-throw the Tribal Chiefs’ title reign, provided he is still the Champion after Extreme Rules.
