Most Overrated Pro Wrestlers

The Most Overrated Wrestlers, Guys Who Just Are not Real Pro Wrestlers.
The Top Ten
1 John Cena John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. ...read more.

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.

If you really think about it, nearly every wrestler has a handful of moves they use in a match. The few that are able to do more, guys like Mysterio, Styles, Michaels, Hart and Y2J were/are so knowledgeable in the ring. They can hit their opponents from anywhere, any angle. Their ability to counter every hold, whether they wrestled amateur or not, gives them an edge. Unfortunately, pro wrestling takes more than just, in ring ability. They have to look a certain way or talk a certain way, whatever their gimmick is. All this, and each has to connect with the audience or they have short careers.

I really hate Cena's character. He is always shown as the 'good' guy. Makes other partners look bad like Randy Orton or Edge and make himself look too good. He shows off like a hero. Always win. Even if he lose it will not be clean. He is so annoying. He wins every match and showsoff like a Superhero. He is so overrated, overpushed, constantly buries talents. Even guys like Shawn Michaels and Undertaker allowed to lose to today's jobbers like Khali and Big Show at one point in their career. What about Cena? He not even loses to guys who are equal and greater than him. So overrated.

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

2 Hulk Hogan Hulk Hogan Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American professional wrestler, actor, television personality, entrepreneur and rock bassist.

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!

Now of course I love hulkamania as much as the next guy, but Hogan could not wrestle worth a damn and needed someone like randy savage to carry a watchable match. Hogan far exceeded is own pile of overrated ass mess in Wcw virtually clouding anyone else and making sure he was the top guy. In short Hogan is one of those spotlight hoggers that get on my nerves, and he still does it in TnA.

Hulk Hogan sucks and is overrated as hell. He wins every match and hardly has put over anyone. He was always made to be the centre of attraction despite the fact that he was a terrible wrestler. Also don't forget that he was an egoistic moron and a pathological liar. I hate hulkamania.

Nobody with a brain likes super cena unless you are a kid. But at least cena is a good wrestler when he gets the chance to be. (Vs cm punk on raw and his aj styles matches) but hulk hogan just did them few moves for his whole career. He never really had an epic match of what I can remember.

3 Randy Orton Randy Orton Randal Keith "Randy" Orton is an American professional wrestler and actor who is signed with WWE, where he is a member of the SmackDown brand. He is a 12-time world champion, having held the WWE World Championship eight times and the World Heavyweight Championship four times.

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?

4 Ultimate Warrior Ultimate Warrior Warrior was an American professional wrestler, who most famously wrestled under the ring name The Ultimate Warrior for the World Wrestling Federation from 1987 to 1991 and again in 1992 and 1996. During his 1998 stint in World Championship Wrestling, he was known as The Warrior.

People complain about Cena having a limited moveset, but at least he has a moveset. Ultimate Warrior had no wrestling ability at all. I, with no wrestling experience at all, could probably do a better clothesline than the Ultimate Warrior.

Extremely poor wrestler and hideously unprofessional hypocrite. Plus a horrible person in real life as well. No redeeming qualities whatsoever apart from the steroided physique.

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.

James Brian Hellwig was a bigot and homophobic who said that, quote "Queers do not make the world work" and deemed them not as legitimate as the heterosexuals.

5 Dave Bautista Dave Bautista David Michael "Dave" Bautista Jr. is an American actor and former professional mixed martial artist and professional wrestler.

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

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!

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!

Batista is way better than Jhon Cena in terms of personality and character. at least he doesn't bury talents and does not always win unllike Cena

6 Diesel (Kevin Nash) Diesel (Kevin Nash) Kevin Scott Nash is an American professional wrestler and actor, currently signed to WWE under their legends program. He is best known for his time with World Wrestling Federation under the ring name Diesel, and World Championship Wrestling under his real name.
7 Triple H Triple H Paul Michael Levesque, better known by his ring name Triple H, is an American semi-retired professional wrestler, corporate executive, and actor.

Not my favourite, but he has put over a ton no of wrestlers in his time unlike. Also one of the best all time heels and has been a part of so many great matches and storylines. But when he was a face he was really good as well(DX). He may not be the best wrestler, but I really admire his longevity and ability to maintain shape and continue to put great fights consistently even when he got older unlike other legends like Undertaker who started to become weak as they got older. He was such a workhorse. Triple H deserves respect!

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.

He had many great matches that didn't involve weapons. vs benoit vs Michaels (wm 20, one of the best matches ever and best triple threat match), vs benoit vs Michaels (backlash), with austin vs benoit and jericho ( one of the best RAW matches, finished it with a torn quad! ), vs daniel bryan (wm 30, best wm opener ever), evolution vs shield (extreme rules), vs edge vs jeff hardy (armageddon), vs jeff hardy (no mercy), vs cena( NoC 2008), vs cena vs Michaels ( SS 2009), vs Michaels ( raw 2003), vs ambrose (roadblock) and several others. Besides, Foley and Terry Funk's matches always involved weapons, does that make them mediocre wrestlers?! Even now he puts on classics and makes everyone look like million bucks.

What the hell, How come is HHH at no.4! Do you realize this guy is legendary. His matches against the roch, HBK, undertaker, mick foley, Steve Austin, chris benoit, kurt angle, Y2J and many many more. He invented the elimination chamber. His stable D generation x revolutionized wrestling. In the year 2000(which was the WWE's best year) he was the best wrestler. whenever he loses a new talents is born E. G chris benoit, daniel bryan, John Cena, randy orton, batista etc. the game is legendary. and for those who say that HBK made him you are wrong. In the year 1996 during the infamous msg curtain call he was relegated to be a jobber and slowly walked up the ladder. and also those who say his succes your worong to! His best year 1998,1999,2000 was before he was in arelation with stephanie.

8 Daniel Bryan Daniel Bryan Bryan Lloyd Danielson is an American professional wrestler best known for his tenure in WWE under the ring name Daniel Bryan. He is a five time WWE world champion.

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

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.

This guy is just overrated. So overrated! Extremely overrated! His yes! chant made him famous but that guy has no talent.

I love him as a person, I just find his wrestling absolutely boring.

9 Goldberg Goldberg William Scott "Bill" Goldberg is an American actor, former professional football player, and semi-retired professional wrestler.

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, it's a surprise he isn't considered the worst wrestler of all time.

He is a very dangerous wrestler according to people who fought him. He had no damn training and nearly killed people.

Goldberg should be first one..Lets go Goldberg...Cena sucks!

10 Scott Steiner Scott Steiner Scott Carl Rechsteiner is an American professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, Scott Steiner.

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.

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!

Very bitter toward everyone. The fact he even mentions Ric Flairs name is a disservice to all of pro wrestling.

The Contenders
11 Brock Lesnar Brock Lesnar Brock Edward Lesnar is an American professional wrestler and former amateur wrestler, professional American football player, and mixed martial artist who is currently signed to WWE.

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."

Brock Lesnar is surely one of the strongest wwe superstars ever. Besides his strength the only good fights he ever had were against Rock and Kurt Angle. He totally sucks and is overall sloppy in the ring and on the mic. He sucks I hate Brock Lesnar. He isn't even slightly entertaining to watch! LET'S GO LESNAR, LESNAR SUCKS!

Brock Lesnar is the most overrated Jerk I have ever seen. He is neither cool nor badass unlike his stupid fanboys says. Has no respect for the opponent and has just 2 moves. Also ruined Universal title. This useless part timer doesn't deserve any attention. John Cena should bury this Douche once and for all before he retires

Lesnar sucks. He is way overpushed when he debuted. Within one year, he wins the Royal Rumble, King of the ring, and 3 wwe titles. Not to mention that he is a dick in real life too. Bigoted, homophobic, and hates women and kids. Also, has no mic skills and only uses 3 moves. At least HHH, Edge, and Cena had some skill.

12 Edge Edge Adam Joseph Copeland is a Canadian actor and professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the Smackdown brand under the ring name Edge.

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.

Edge has won everything that everyone dream of even though there were many better wrestlers who deserved more. Edge is overpushed.

His spear is lame and he always overreacts.

13 The Rock The Rock Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

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 would Rockbottom you all Haters and Cena Fans! Now I got it! You guys are so jealous of Rock because he kicked Cena's candy ass at Wrestlemania! Ha! Ha!

14 Kane Kane Glenn Thomas Jacobs is an American professional wrestler, insurer, and actor. He works for WWE, and is best known by his ring name Kane.

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.

Kane is very overrated. He is useless and boring. Yeah I know how he used to be. But I never found his gimmick interesting. I think Fiend is a better character.

How the hell all the underrated wrestlers are all over overrated wrestlers. This list totally sucks.

Kane is overrated. His annoying fanboys always talks about how he used to be awesome back in 2000 and blah blah. Thankyou HHH for burying Kane.

15 Alberto Del Rio Alberto Del Rio José Alberto Rodríguez best known as Alberto Del Rio is a Mexican professional wrestler and former mixed martial artist.  

I don't know why I hate him. But either way, I'm glad he quit wrestling.

16 Psycho Sid

He was an awful speaker, but a good wrestler. He is so underrated for his work. He main evented two Wrestlemanias, beat guys like Owen Hart, Vader, Chris Benoit, Kevin Nash, and more clean. He was the first man to ever kick out of Hogan's leg drop. How is he on here?

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!

Definitely does NOT belong on this list!

17 Roman Reigns Roman Reigns Leati Joseph "Joe" Anoa'i (Roman Reigns) was born on May 25, 1985. He is an American professional wrestler and former professional Canadian football player. ...read more.

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.

Over pushed and overrated. I was super pissed when he entered the 2017 royal rumble and eliminated Chris Jericho and the undertaker. He's literally beated everyone. If test, Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero were alive, they would have beaten him. He is so overrated and he is literally the definition of overrated.

He is just stupid and shouting everywhere that it is his yard. Why do Vince give him so much push Seth Rollins is much better than him. He don't have skills neither mic nor wrestling. How he has main evented 4 wrestlemanias? If those wrestlemanias would have been taken place without him then they would be better.

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.

18 Aj Lee Aj Lee April Jeanette "AJ" Brooks, better known by her ring name AJ Lee, is an American retired professional wrestler. Aj Lee started her professional wrestling career in 2009 where she spent 2 years in Florida Championship Wrestling. She debuted under the ring name of April Lee at FCW, until a few months ...read more.

I must admit I hate her for no reason..

19 Jeff Hardy Jeff Hardy Jeffrey Nero "Jeff" Hardy is an American professional wrestler, singer-songwriter, painter and musician.

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.

20 Kofi Kingston Kofi Kingston Kofi Nahaje Sarkodie-Mensah is a Ghanaian-American professional wrestler. He is signed to WWE under the ring name Kofi Kingston, in which he is a member of The New Day along with teammates Big E and Xavier Woods.

Why does he still wrestle?

21 Jeff Jarrett Jeff Jarrett Jeffrey Leonard "Jeff" Jarrett is an American professional wrestler, wrestling promoter, and co-founder of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, which he founded along with his father, Jerry, and more recently, Global Force Wrestling.

Hit so many wrestlers with a guitar, imitated Ric Flair on a daily baisis, and never drew a damn dime!

22 Roddy Piper Roddy Piper Roderick George "Roddy" Toombs, better known by his ring name "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, was a Canadian professional wrestler and actor.

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!

He sucks. But what the hell are cena, orton, christian, edge, batista, the rock, jerico and jeff hardy doing here? They don't't deserve to be on this list!

Even santino beat him

He is overrated he should be number 1 and orton is not overrated

23 Big Show Big Show Paul Randall Wight, Jr. is an American professional wrestler and actor, better known by his ring name Big Show.

Big Show is a boss. Wrestlers like John Cena is a joke and is a disgrace to wrestling.

He was good in WCW as The Giant.
He sucks in WWE as The Big Show, now he's just fat!

He's actually very underrated. People judge him because he's "fat." Whoever calls him fat is just mean

Big Show is underrated. Kane is overrated. He should be in top 5.

24 Xavier Woods Xavier Woods Austin Watson is an American professional wrestler currently signed to WWE under the ring name Xavier Woods.
25 CM Punk CM Punk Phillip Jack "Phil" Brooks, also known by the ring name CM Punk, is an American comic book writer, actor, upcoming mixed martial artist and retired professional wrestler who is signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. ...read more.

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

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.

His moves aren't crisp at all. His mic skills are way overrated, and he doesn't have the look at all he looks like a hill billy

How can Christian appears in this poll.
He is underrated.
Such a Idiot!
