If A-League clubs were WWE Superstars

-

Who does not love to compare the things they love? Not us, so we will be looking at what WWE Superstars the A-League clubs would be.

We will be sticking to current superstars for now (with one exception).

Wrestling is a great entertainment spectacle, the WWE superstars put their bodies on the line to produce top content and tell incredible stories. While the stories they tell may be scripted, the punishment their bodies take is all but fake.

There is nothing like combining two fandoms and having a bit of fun, so let us jump in and see which clubs are which superstars.

Adelaide United – AJ Styles

The underrated duo who are just continually putting in effort and getting results. Can always be relied upon to work with new talent and bring them up to the level required.

Not to mention, both share a pretty packed trophy cabinet and enjoyed a good run in Asia. AJ is proud of his southern upbringing and what is more southern than our very own South Australian team.

Brisbane Roar – Sheamus

Besides the obvious connection with orange, everyone seems to remember these two absolutely dominating everyone in the early 2010’s and if you check their trophy cabinets there is not much missing.

While they are not quite at the main event anymore, they are still putting up some decent results and there is always the potential of returning to their glory days.

Central Coast Mariners – Rey Mysterio

Hard not to bring these two over-achieving underdogs together. Small in stature but ready to give everything to make it to the top and prove the small guys do it just as well.

Really strong in the 2000s, but then seemingly disappearing for a while before making a successful comeback recently. Also parallels between Rey winning things with his son Dominik and the Mariners winning things with their kids.

Macarthur FC – Damian Priest

Both new on the scene and looking to impress immediately. Priest shot to prominence in the last year after teaming with already very famous Bad Bunny, the Bulls did a similar thing by signing so many well known players.

While they are not quite ready to take the step up and challenge for the main title, they are certainly showing promise.

Melbourne City – Roman Reigns

Finally living up to the potential that everyone could see is there, Reigns and City are finally on top of their respective fields.

For years we have heard how they are the next big thing, and it is only a matter of time before they rightfully dominate. There is also the perceived feeling from fans of having them jammed in our faces for so long.

Melbourne Victory – John Cena

The face that runs the place, the biggest club in the land. Two juggernauts that dominated their opposition to the point where other fans just could not stand them anymore.

They spent 15 years at the top but the last few years their attention has turned in other directions, Cena has gone to Hollywood to be a movie star and who knows what the Victory are doing, but it is certainly not winning anything. Maybe their time is up?

Newcastle Jets – Dolph Ziggler

This poor duo, all the potential in the world but they just making losing a habit.

Sure, they had those miracle runs where it seemed everyone wanted them to finally win the prig prize, but it just never worked out and they went right back to losing.

Followed by die hard fans that cling to the hope that maybe next year will be their year.

Perth Glory – Shinsuke Nakamura

Charisma and attacking quality. Nakamura is known for his incredible accomplishments prior to joining the WWE and Perth are known for their titles from before the A-League.

Nakamura is known for his hard strikes and Perth are well known for the deadly attacking prowess. While neither has won the big one yet, everyone can see they have the firepower to get it done.

Sydney FC – Seth Rollins

Very loud in both appearance and stature, these two seem to be at the pinnacle of their realms. Claiming titles left and right and almost looking down on the rest of their opposition.

Opposition fans love to hate them and even claim they get help from the refs/VAR to keep them on top. The perfect bad guy for modern times.

Wellington Phoenix – Sami Zayn

Another underdog story but it seems these two just can not get to the top without someone coming along and knocking them down and having to start over.

While Zayn will do anything to get to the top, the Nix will keep being smart. The people just can not help but get behind these underdogs and Zayn’s idea that there is a conspiracy to keep him down will resonate with some Nix fans.

Western Sydney Wanderers – The Miz

The loudest voice of any room they are in. Clinging to past success and claiming to be the best of the best when really they are just fine being in the middle of the pack.

They are both extremely flashy and if things do not go their way it gets ugly fast. Every now and again though they pop up and get all the media attention, sometimes it is hard to tell whether that is good or bad though.

Western United – King Corbin

An important part of their divisions but hated by almost everyone, no one really seems to like them. While that works for Corbin cause he is the bad guy, it is not great for Western with their limited fan base.

Both seem to be clingy to hang out with others to try and build up their reputations, like Western playing out of AAMI park. We all need a bad guy and I guess Western are it.
