Most Overrated Pro WrestlersThe Most Overrated Wrestlers, Guys Who Just Are not Real Pro Wrestlers.
The Top Ten
Cena needs to stop saying the same stuff week in and week out. he has like 5 moves people... FU (attitude adjuster), 5 knuckle shuffle, punch, STFU... ok a few more... but still... same crap every match... besides he doesn't deserve to be the name and face of the business, has anyone heard how badly he is actaully booed? its hard to hear on television but if you go to a wwe event, you see/hear how hard he gets booed. he changed the United States championship into a spinner? , they changed it back though, same with the wwe championship, they kept the same design but it doesn't even spin. I hope cena's airplane explodes or something. God damn RAW would get way better ratings to be honest
He does the same moves each and every week, and a lot of people call him a great superstar? No way is that gonna convince me. He is definitely one of the worst wrestlers of all time. One more thing: his T-shirts are really annoying fashion items. - aeromaxx777
Actually John Cena is a great guy in real life. I admit that at times when I got annoyed with him I have voted against him and also sometimes wrote disrespectful comments about him. But soon I realized that whatever he does not actually mean to do it. WWE forces him to do it I.E. it is scripted. Than I regreted for my acts and started to love him. Now it's been like years seeing negative comments about Cena and IT is clearly off the limits. I want you haters not to blame on Cena, blame WWE. Cena does whatever WWE says. Not only Cena and any other wrestlers or person. Do not hate others. Each plays an important role. There is no good or bad guys. Whatever they do it is only part of their profession. When you love your favourite person you also respect others even if yo do not like them. And I ask you guys to forgive me for disliking Cena once. Thanks.
John Cena sucks, John Cena, John Cena sucks. Love that song!
One of the best draws! But average wrestler and one heck of a liar.
I still just don't understand why everyone likes him so much! I don't find him so amusing. All that he can do is talk, wear a shirt saying, 'HOGAN RULES', do some salutes, tear his shirt, run here and there, a powerslam, a legdrop, 123 and finish! Can you even call him as a wrestler with only 2 moves? His matches are quite boring. Hogan cannot put up an exciting match like Bret Hart or Savage. Beside he was not a great entertainer. And WWE says he is one of the greatest wrestlers. He is really overrated!
All he does is body slams people and does a leg drop... In WCW, he was scared of sting... Which I would be too. But he was way to overrated. - jwileson
Hulk Hogan is particularly John Cena of past. But one difference is that he was a worse wrestler than Cena.
Here's the check list:
- Never made an interview that does make any sense: Check
- Can't sell any moves and is too afraid to have painful hits: Check
- Always is too powerful over all of his opponents: Check
- Very often makes short matches: Check
- Had the title too early while all the other wrestlers during his time deserves it more: Check
- Having more no-shows than any other wrestlers in history: Check
- Has a bad attitude with his employers and associate wrestlers: Check
- 99% of the times, he's a laughing-stock: Check
There's nothing more that can be said about this terrible person
He may have been energetic but he wasn't much more, sure he was strong but the warrior was always really selfish and wanted money money money.
To the autistic idiot who said "glad he's dead"...no one deserves to die because they are "overrated". You are pathetic
Can not wrestle at all
Orton may have few moves but he cannot possibly live up to the aura put around him right of the bat. Randy didn't even have to work very hard to get were he is at. He is very stiff and bland on both the mat and mic.
He used to be more "real" but unfortunately it seems that he's lost his ways considerably. It happened especially when he became known as the viper; I mean that he was better before.
Very good in-ring worker but the Viper gimmick really hurts him. "He hears voices in his head? " Very unnecessary to give him such a bad gimmick. Not overrated in my book.
Orton is only 35 years old and is already a 12 time World Champion! What the hell! Don't you guys think he is really overrated?
He is very overrated than than John Cena, triple h etc. He has no mic skills, wrestling skills are some what better. The only reasons he became popular because of his yes chant. WWE fans are hypocrites
This guy is just overrated. So overrated! Extremely overrated! His yes! chant made him famous but that guy has no talent.
I don't hate Daniel Bryan. But he is SO UNGODLY OVERRATED. People act like he is the greatest wrestler of the 21st, when that is not the case at all. Guys like Batista, CM Punk, John Cena, and Randy Orton made more of an impact than Daniel Bryan ever did. And get out of here with your ROH crap, because no one but hardcore wrestling fans watch it.
Yes Yes Yes! You are most overrated.
I cannot believe this guy is not number one. People always talk about how he should come back, this guy was nothing. WCW gave him a streak of beating up a bunch of no name jobbers until he got main event pushes. After his streak ended, Goldberg quickly became a nobody. He has constantly whined, complained, and flat out refused to wrestle for no good reason and has gotten pushes he never earned, he had a terrible work rate and an even worse attitude, its a surprise he isn't considered the worst wrestler of all time.
Goldberg should be first one..Lets go Goldberg...Cena sucks!
Never liked him from the beginning. BORING!
He is a very dangerous wrestler according to people who fought him. He had no damn training and nearly killed people.
This guy never had a great match that didn't involve a weapon. Buried great talent such as Shelton Benjamin, Carlito & MVP. His gimmick name triple h should mean triple hoe cause he stood by Vince McMahon, HBK & Ric Flair his pimps just to get where he is. HBK made not this overrated douche. He didn't deserve the main event win at mania 2000(16) or the main event title win at mania 18. I felt it should have been The Rock & Hogan for the title. I felt he was jelous of The Rock's spotlight stealing The Rock's main event title wins at mania 16 & 18.
I agree that this ass is top two along with John Cena in most overrated wrestlers list. And yes he is a whore or hoe to HBK because Michaels not HHH made. Without HBK, HHH & would be nothing. HHH had to stand by Vince McMahon, HBK & Ric Flair just to get where he is at. If not he would be a regular wrestler like others
Honestly I am not in the mood to type the list of what's wrong with the head breakfast clubber, that on its own can be its own top ten list, in short he got all of his success from politicking and if your not on his good side its doubtful that you will make it far. Just ask ken anderson.
He is the worst of them all and never does anything new. He is the epitome of how not to live your life as a WWE wrestler. He only made it because vince mcmahon is his father-in-law. I believe that CM Punk will be better at wrestling than triple h ever was.
Batista absolutely sucked. Horrible mic skills and gimmicks. When he was against the top guys like Brock lesnar and Undertaker he was manhandled. Dave please stick to Hollywood. Even in Hollywood no one knows him
Not at all good. Too overrated
Batista ya jealous bastard! you lose every match against john cena at a payper view! than the next night, monday night raw! than he comes out 1st and makes an excuse cause he lost! get the alligator out of your backyard ya sore loser! also, why the heck is john cena, randy orton, christian, edge and jeff hardy doing on this list! they don't deserve to be there!
BOTCHtista could not wrestle, had some of the of the most crappy promos and matches I have seen, hell, he even had less moves than Goldberg! Repeat the spinebuster six octillion times, and than do a powerbomb which does not even hurt! (i know because I've felt one of those.) shouldn't have been hired in the first place!
Well he started of as a great athlete, debuting a lot of moves from Japan in america and tearing up the tag scene with his brother but it escalated to him taking steroids dying his hair blonde and botching moves, definitely got more then he deserved in the later half of his career.
Very bitter toward everyone. The fact he even mentions Ric Flairs name is a disservice to all of pro wrestling.
If anything this guy is underrated. He has carried the WWE and would have done so with TNA/Impact but Hulk Hogan and Eric Bishoff were so jealous of him. I only watch TNA/Impact now for the female wrestlers. They are the hottest!
Scott steiners my grandpas name
He couldn't wrestle, had the lamest finishing moves of all time-the peoples elbow and rock bottom which is more like a modified chockeslam. His version of the sharpshooter makes me sick. Equally overrated in Hollywood. Personally I can not stand him. Uses a lot of steroids. For proof look at his picture in 1996 and then 2013. the only things his good is at mike. Was gone for 7 year and now comes and buries talents such as C. M punk. he is also really ugly. The only reason he got the WWE championship because of his Samoan blood. Man I remember when he debuted in WWE he was hated. He did nothing memorable in the attitude era. the only good matches he had was against triple H. His match again hulk hogan and cena were horrible.
Lets be honest the rock is really just good on the mic, other than that there is not much more to see, he isn't that fluent with moves as he used to be and he really only ever knew about five, and it was a joke that he won the belt in 2013 especially as a part timer.
Shouldn't be 12th spot! #1 spot! That guy is just so overrated! Ok he's awesome on the microphone but his People's Elbow finisher is one of the stupidest finishers ever realised. That guy stole Bret Hart's famous Sharpshooter
The Rock smells trash...
Now of course Edge is a great wrestler and is way better than Cena when it comes to skills and wrestling and I love him too. I agree Cena is too overrated but I feel Edge a bit overrated. Because Cena during his 14 year career has accomplished 24 Championships. At the same time Edge during his 14 year career has accomplished 31 Championships! And many Legends compared to them has accomplished quite less Championships like Taker and HBK. For instance Undertaker has only accomplished overall 15 Championships during his 25 year career. I know he had an undefeated streak at wrestlemania but I am just saying. Don't you guys think Edge is a bit overrated?
Edge may have been one of WWE's best workers during his stint (maybe #2 next to Cena), but he received too much favorable booking. He became an 11-time Champion within a span of only 5 years, defended the World Heavyweight Championship 4 Wrestlemanias IN A ROW, worked on a terrible babyface gimmick (2009-2011), and twisted main event storylines from 2007-2011 into one huge cluster.
The worst part was that Vince let a Legend like Kane to lose most of the matches to a normal star like Edge
Edge sucks. It's just that.
No he doesn't. He was one of the very best heels in the company's history, he was great on the mic and an amazing wrestler. - RogerMcBaloney
The most overrated thing in existence. He and his equally cocky fans are biggest jerks.
Number 1 for me on this list. Handed matches he didn't deserve with little fan based. I swear the WWE has built him up like the friends and family who lie to the people who audition for American Idle. To paraphrase Simon Cowell "You have to have a talent to progress it. I don't believe Brock has a professional wrestling talent. With him the WWE is completely wasting the fans money. Sorry."
Lucky he is in WWE. In UFC his ass got kicked and was manhandled in the very first match.
Has a lot of muscles and steroids. But his wrestling sucks.
Roman reigns is the most overrated guy. John Cena at least had mic skills, this idiot doesn't even have that. So he is a downgrade from John Cena.
He won the 2015 Royal Rumble. He is so overrated!
Roman Reigns is like the new John Cena.
And people say Cena is overrated. Roman is 14 on this list?! Vince has made him defeat EVERYONE. Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Triple H, The Undertaker, he would of beat the likes of Stone Cold, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Edge. They even had him beat John Cena. The only reason he isn't being shoved down our throats is because he has leukemia. Just so you know, I don't like that he has leukemia, and I hope he gets well soon. but, he's too overrated.
Overrated as hell. Kane legit sucks. Should have retired years ago.
Kane's strength has always been overrated. Even guys like Kurt Angle and Cesaro are a lot stronger than him in reality but their strength has always been underrated.
How the hell all the underrated wrestlers are all over overrated wrestlers. This list totally sucks.
How the hell Kane is more overrated than Steve Austin?! Is this list a joke?
No charisma, too much T.V. time
In one promo, I'm pretty sure he said "I have half of your brains! " I don't think that's how it was supposed to go down. And don't get me started on his in ring performance! - EspioTheChameleon
Good talker but not a great one and a sloppy wrestler
Definitely does NOT belong on this list!
This guy does not know wrestling
I must admit I hate her for no reason..
WHAT! WHY IS SHE IN HERE!?!?
Okay here me out, hardy is by far the most daring athlete in the biz, but after all the drug consumption and taking his career for granite you have to ask, does he truly deserve it. Hardy has a large fan base, and its been built through years of hard work but hardy has embarrassed the business multiple times and has that same mantra as mysterio via being so underrated he is over rated.
I respect Jeff for taking risks off the top rope but that's all he does, he's nothing but a boring spot monkey. Once you've seen one of his matches, you've seen them all. - john-cenation
Even santino beat him
He sucks. But what the hell are cena, orton, christian, edge, batista, the rock, jerico and jeff hardy doing here? They dont't deserve to be on this list! - AbdullahSaeedKhan
He is overrated he should be number 1 and orton is not overrated
Chances are, anyone who thinks Piper sucked is under the age of 30.
He was Awesome because he was so politically incorrect, which is probably why all the sheep like millenials don't like him!
Big Show is a boss. Wrestlers like John Cena is a joke and is a disgrace to wrestling.
Big Show is not at all overrated. Stupid list!
Shut up losers! Big Show is the best!
Was a great wrestler but now should really retire!
How is Kofi overrated?!?! The guy is one of the faces of Tag Team WWE. You just can't hate The New Day, especially Kofi.
How does he still have a job? BORING!
Hit so many wrestlers with a guitar, imitated Ric Flair on a daily baisis, and never drew a damn dime!
Midcard piece of Memphis monkey crap and TNA's 2nd rate equivalent to HHH
I remember watching the ECW reboot back in 2006 and 2007, and I kept wondering why he was as over as he was. His in ring work was good, but it wasn't great. All his matches were the same, with him hitting the same moves over and over again, and winning cleanly, every single time.
Many of his wins in WWE ECW were on guys who I thought were much better. The best example is against the New Breed, a group that had a lot of momentum after their feud with the ECW originals. Elijah Burke in particular was starting to look like a main eventer, but then he got jobbed out to Punk, killing his newly gained star power. Matt Striker got jobbed out to Punk. Almost the entire WWE ECW roster got jobbed to Punk, despite how boring his entire WWE ECW run was.
And yet, he was the most popular guy in WWE ECW, despite never having a particular interesting match and, up to that point, never cutting a promo of note. Sure, he became better once he moved on to RAW and Smackdown, but even then, ...more
One of the best promo cutters ever and a good in ring worker, this is a joke - themissourikid96
He is sloppy in the ring. He is an average wrestler at best. His mic skills are overrated. He needs to rely on information from elsewhere to deliver a good promo. Shawn Michaels can deliver on direct from the horses mouth.
He is the best and not overrated.
He is aldready in the list
He’s so overrated that he made this list... TWICE! - KingSlayer93316
Limited guy.squash match specialist. REALLY POWERFUL STEROID GUY, LIKES TO HURT PEOPLE.THE IDIOT WHO ENDED BRET HART'S CAREER.
Sting is ok. But not that great how everyone says. And also without Hogan he would have been nothing.
Sting just got lucky.
Like Scott Hudson say, sting is a good wrestler but he never give a 5 stars match.
Sting is just a lucky guy
What, sting is great.
You know what... all of New Day is overrated - KingSlayer93316
Fire this Lame Ass!
Christian is not only just a good wrestler but he is so sexy the blonde hair and handsome face and his body is muscular, his chest is blazing and ripped and his arms are toned and his tan surfer boy skin makes him a great wrestler and take all that away he would just be a normal wrestler.
He's not overrated infact he's considered as underrated by the fans and wrestlers. Arguably better than Edge, the guy was charismatic and crowd loved him to death during 2005 when Vince decided not to give him a title shot (because he didn't like Christian's face) and Christian left for TNA and became their top star. They don't make wrestlers like him anymore.
Winning tag team championships in 2001 and being called Captain Charisma is totally gone overrated.
How is he in this list. He is god wrestler. He should be in most underrated WWE wrestlers list. WWE story lines are suck. Why is christuan can not win big one?
Average wrestler! Most his fans are rednecks, which is half of the wresting fan base. Only reason he was has popular as he was. definitely overrated.
Overrated! 1998 great year for him but not better than taker. Taker 25 solid years.
People, yes he has 2 great years but that doesn't mean he's not overrated.
He save vince's company how can he was overrated. If it wasn't for him, WWF would have lost long ago and didn't have a chance to come up worldwide. - STFUSS
Just a spot monkey and no real realism to his matches
Anyone who thinks he is overrated is probably just some dumb millenial!
One of the most over and entertaining guys in WWE today. Not overrated. - RobertWisdom
Doubtlessly overrated. After hr won his WWE Championship in 2010, he started being cheered and when he won over Cena at WrestleMania! That guy is terribly overrated
Why do Michael kole always get hype when the mid come out and when he cheats Michael kole is like no he is just awesome!
Why is Eddie on this list?
Just there for his size. And because he's Indian and attracts viewers from that region. What is it he does in the ring? Just being big and slow. That's it.
He should be number 1! He could not even walk properly forget wrestling. I fainted when I saw him defeating The Undertaker. his matches are always
: slap, brawl, big boot, khali chop, pin. He even gets paid too much
An Indian tall wrestler who picks up women and kisses them... He's tall, that's why he's overrated. Giant Gonzales is taller and has never been mentioned.!
Stupid Khali. John Cena will destroy him.
He can literally beat the crap out of everybody on the roster and has a great resume. - RobertWisdom
I hate JBL because all he ever does is a stupid clothesline from hell. Seriously, what a basic finisher the clothesline. What a laugh.
For most of his carreer he was just BORING! Alright as a color commentator though.
He bullies wrestlers and making them suicide. the only reason he was WWE champion because eddie guerro health was not good triple h would not work on Tuesdays.
Wrong - RobertWisdom
Ryback is way superior to Brock Lesnar. Brock knows that he will lose if he fights against Ryback. That is why he doesn't want to fight a match against Ryback.
Ryback is so overrated. He just does his finsher shellshock and that's it. To be fair he is an alright wrestler but I think he is just a little bit overrated don't you think?
Rybotch and his foolish fans only know how to boast! He doesn't know ABCD about wrestling! He even lost to the 40+ year old Big Show who could be easily beaten by anyone! That proves how much he sucks! He can't even perform his own moves well! He is so foolish and acts too much! Should have been in the top 5! That is why Lesnar rules and Rybotch sucks! He can't never be a Legend like Lesnar
He's just gotta keep working. He's got potential
He was just plain BORING, & awful, I mean AWFUL MIC SKILLS!
This guy is awesome! - RobertWisdom
I thought my friends were joking when they told me he defeated The Undertaker clean and then also had an undefeated streak. Did not realize that they were saying the truth
He is so weird, if Stone cold and The Rock were around he would still be working at McDonalds - roblist
Totally Underrated, does NOT belong on this list! #
Underrated - KingSlayer93316
Any idiot who would consider an amazing performer and entertainer like this overrated has no credibility at all. - RobertWisdom
Michaels and Undertaker are overrated? Then how the hell they won less no. of championships?
Austin and Michaels should have been in the top 20.
Because he is so boring and is overrated.
He only won 3 Championships. - Jerry1
The promos looked so promising, then they ruined it with that stupid ass dancing gimmick!
