Dante Chen is the first Singaporean to ever wrestle in a WWE match
Dante Chen, whose real name is Sean Tan, is the first Singaporean to wrestle in a WWE match.
A star is born: Tan, 25, made his WWE debut on Sept. 21 when he beat his opponent Trey Baxter, subsequently making him the first Singaporean wrestler to not only be a part of the WWE stable but also the first Singaporean to win a WWE match, according to Channel News Asia.
Tan walked onto the stage wearing a silver mask and red robe, with the announcer exclaiming, “His [Baxter’s] opponent from Singapore, weighing in at 215 pounds, Dante Chen.” The match between Baxter and Tan lasted less than a minute, leaving Tan victorious.
