Underachieving Superstars?

What wrestlers do you guys think had more to give for the WWF, either from their point of view or the company's perspective of not using them well enough?

One that sticks in my mind is D'Lo Brown. I think he was good on the mic, had real technical ability (espcially off the top rope) and also had the charisma which was the focus during the Attitude Era.

Obviously the Droz accident may have played a part in that, but I feel that he was more deserving of Heat shows at that point anyway. I would've like to have seen him team up with the Rock like in the Nation of Domination to be honest, as they would of been one hell of a tag team (Not as funny as Rock and Sock mind).

As a random question, why was it he had missing teeth and a lisp during 97/98? It seemed to go when I started watching in 99.

Jake Roberts: One of the greatest minds, I've ever seen in pro wrestling. How he doesn't have a major job in a major wrestling promotion is a tradegy. Awesome promo cutter as well. What could he have been if he'd of controlled his demons

Scott Hall, oozed natrual charisma, again his personal demons got the better of him, noticing a theme here. Heck, he was even the focus of one of those E:60 segments.

Re: Underachieving Superstars?

Never was a William Regal fan, didn't like his character and image whatsoever. Probably because of his posh English accent which being English is annoying as hell!

Was it his wrestling ability you believe he was destined to achieve more with?

Regal, Hall and Roberts all should have achieved a lot more than they did.

Love Regal. Great in ring style and awesome on the mic, should have been world champion at least once

Re: Underachieving Superstars?

Regal goes without saying--awesome in the ring, criminally underrated on the mic as well: good at being serious and was quite funny in his own dry way. Although, at some points personal problems took him down a little.

Re: Underachieving Superstars?

The guys I think the WWF dropped the ball on is a list a mile long but the notables to me are:

Mr Kennedy
Matt Morgan
Paul Burchill
Steve Regal
Steve Keirn
D Lo Brown
Butch Reed
