Most Overrated Wrestlers?

Discussion in 'General WWE' started by Nickelodeon, Dec 14, 2013.

  1. Since this section needs some more activity, who do you think is the most overrated wrestler in the WWE atm?

    I would honestly have to go with CM Punk. As a Punk mark, it's difficult to at but it's the truth. He's worshipped like a god and people are putting him above guys like Savage, Perfect, hell, even Flair and Michaels. The dudes good and definitely a top 5 in the company guy, but he's not the greatest of all time.

  3. CM Punk, definitely.
     
  4. I'd say Punk too. I'm a Punk mark as well and even I think he is too much overrated.
     
  5. So much this, dude's a strong speaker with ring skills which are good at a push and lacks variety in his mannerisms. Bryan's become overrated now from a character standpoint, dudes generic babyface 3.0 now yet people act like he's some demigod. Punk the same as the others and I fucking love the guy, most of the guys from the past are massively overrated also due to the nostalgic approach.

  6. Those vanilla midgets Punk and Bryan, easily. I like both guys (only moderately, not a HUGE fan of either guy, although I used to love Punk a lot more than I do now because he's clearly lost a lot of his edge nowadays) but the way they're praised on the 'net is ridiculous. And let's be honest, in the Rock N' Wrestling Era of the 80's or in the Attitude Era of the 90's/00's, these guys would be competing for the Intercontinental Title, not in the main event. If Punk had a lot of his edge back, maybe he could be a pretty good heel to oppose the top face at some point, but he wouldn't have a 434 day title reign in those eras with guys like Hogan, Savage, Warrior, Austin, Rock and others around and would still spend the majority of his time in the midcard/upper-midcard. I appreciate the work of both guys, but them being the top two faces underneath Cena has more to do with a lack of true main event star power than it does with either guy's greatness.

    Dean Ambrose is a good shout, but I'm mainly holding back opinions on him because we haven't seen what he's capable of outside of The Shield. I do get tired of people saying he's the next #1 heel of the company because I'm doubtful of that being the case but only time will tell.
     
  7. Rare that no one said Cena
    but I`m going for Punk, even though I`m a punk mark, I think he is super overrated
     
  8. In the IWC Cena is crazily underrated.
     
  9. What is IWC?

  11. Internet Wrestling Community. Judge it as a majority of the opinions and Cena is hated by most who completely ignore his ability.

  12. Mainly the ones who have been stated already, Punk and Ambrose are overrated. Bryan's character is overrated (and I'm a huge Bryan mark).
    I find Ziggler to be a bit overrated, buts thats mainly personal opinion. I see no reason to care for him. I like Dolph, but I ain't gonna cry if I don't see him.

    Outside of WWE, Aries. Same as Punk, worshipped as a demigod but being pretty one trick on the stick.
     
  13. Oh, thanks

  14. Aries and Punk are one trick ponies when it comes to promos?

    - Comedy

    - Serious

    - Comedy

    - Serious

    They both have a variety of styles using different pacing and pitches. Calling them one trick ponies is a criminal exaggeration IMO.
     
  15. I'll give you Punk, but with Aries I just feel like I am getting the same package each time I hear him talk. I love his ring work, but I feel like there is no depth to his character when he speaks.
     
  16. Yeah, I agree with this. He definitely shouldn't be jobbing like he is, but I also don't think he's as great as some make him out to be.
     
  17. How much of that is TNA's nonesensical booking though? His preGMTEL schtick was very much a different kettle of fish also. He's got his own style absolutely but the emotions different IMO.
     
  18. Booking is definitely a factor, same with Punk in the E. And I admittedly need to see more of preGMTEL Aries to form a full opinion.

    On the subject of mic skills. I kinda think Daniels' heel work is a bit overrated. It's good but too hammy at times. When he's a heel he tends to full comic book supervillain. Fun but not fitting all the time. Still love Daniels though
