As far as being under appreciated by the company who employed him and made him a superstar, Randy fucking Savage.

McMahon is such a stubborn, grudge-holding prick that he never put the second biggest household name in pro wrestling into the Hall of Fame while he was alive, and STILL didn't when Mania was in Florida of all places this year.

Windham is a good choice but I don't know that I'd say he's underappreciated. He's a guy that gets a tremendous amount of respect from his peers. Flair and guys of that era have allpraised him and Sullivan said he was the greatest babyface of ALL TIME. Sadly this generation of fans has no idea who he is though. And LMAO at how poorly Vince used him in hi final two runs with the company. And his last run with WCW for that matter, although WWF had him while he was still relatively in the prime of his career.

Arn Anderson

I don't think anyone was better from 85-95 than Arn. He was a great heel, a great face, great in singles and maybe the best tag team wrestler ever. He was a cornerstone of the two best in ring stables ever in the Horsemen and Dangerous Alliance, and imo was a top 5 promo in wrestling history.

The secret to the popularity of the Von Erich's is that Frtiz brought in the Freebirds to make his boys look good. Fact is Hayes and Gordy deserve more credit than Kerry, God rest his soul.
Kerry was the first guy who stood out to me as a kid as being larger than life real life superhero. I was 5 at the time, but I thought Kerry was awesome.

Kerry Von Erich is my choice as well. The guy was gold in the 80's. It's a wonder he didn't get a bigger singles push in the WWE.

Tito Santana. Yes he's a HOF'er and deservedly so. He wrestled for the company from the late 70s to early 90s; was used up and pushed aside (in Bret's words)

Barry was also a very good heel when he joined the Four Horsemen and feuded with Dusty Rhodes. I didn't particularly like his run as World's Champion in '93. I felt his workrate dropped around that period in the 90s and he would have worked better as a face champion in the feud with Flair in the 80s even if it was a short reign. He would have been a better choice than Garvin even I really like the two cage matches Flair and Garvin did in '87. But Barry was a phenomenal performer when he was at the top of his game. One of the best ever.
I wouldn't say Windham's workrate dropped in the early 90's. He had an amazing 92, and his title run was really great with one of my favorite undercard matches ever vs 2 Cold Scorpio. I think Barry changed his style to work more like a world champ should, and he was still figuring it out when his knee blew out. Barry was my favorite wrestle on the planet as a kid during this time so I may be biased, buy Barry and The Hollywood Blonds were awesome.

Because I'm not too familiar with most organizations like AWA, Mid-South, etc. I'm going to give my vote toward Taka Michinoku. While he wasn't in the WWF very long (1997-2001). He was one of the guys that managed to keep me entertained. Recently, I took a look at some of his matches over in Japan and I'm still a fan of the guys work.' Another name that did come to mind was Stevie Richards. From the BWO to RTC to Dr Stevie. The guy managed to keep me entertained.

While they may not be on the top of the list, as far as legends goes. Those two are two guys that I think are overlooked.
