OOH. Most overrated Mysterio is the No Mercy 2002 tag. Underrated IDK about. It has to be something people have seen otherwise it's not 'underrated'. you can't rate something too low if you haven't seen it. Do people think the GAB Chavo and Judgment Day JBL matches are awesome? Because they are. Probably them.
Cal giving ECW no credit again. FUCKER.
I'd probably agree with both overrated/underrated pics. Pretty sure most will have seen Rey/Chavo but just forget about it when they bring up best cruiserweight/juniors matches in company history. It would probably be my #1 unless I really dug the Mysterio/Noble Velocity match more on another rewatch. You seen the Mysterio/Tajiri series from September 03-January 2004? Its pretty high end stuff cruiserweight wise in WWE. The first match and final match (1st Smackdown of 2004) are the standouts, but the No Mercy 03 match is a fine follow up to the Smackdown September match between the two.
I'm not a massive fan of a lot of ECW, but they definitely produced some really great brawls and multi-man tags which broke down into lunacy. I can take or leave the Taz/Sabu/Funk 1997 and beyond stuff but the likes of Scorpio, Mikey Whipwreck, Spike Dudley and Tajiri demonstrate there was a lot of talent in the promotion. Tajiri in 2000 is still one of the most overlooked years for a wrestler.
My favourite thing in the match might be Christian's bump off of the apron from Swagger's shoulder tackle. That honestly might be one of my favourite bumps of all time. I skipped to that spot like 6 times after it happened. I'm in no place to discuss 2009 MOTY since the majority's a blind-spot, but I don't think I'd have it above Ikeda/Ono v Suruga/Oba. That'd probably be my MOTY but there's a stupid amount of shit I want to see first.
Oh man that was a hell of a bump and something I'd actually forgotten about. Quite a dangerous bump when you consider how fast Swagger went in and the landing Christian had to take. The finish is really perfect for me though, they really manage to have a series of counters which feel dramatic (largely because you fear Christian's arm will give out at any moment) and well timed before Swagger manages to steal the match just as Christian looks to have outsmarted the champion.
Is that tag the 4/26 one? I went through some of Lenny's matches on his site for FUTEN matches since Ditch is lacking and that's the only tag of theirs I could find. I know its an April tag but sure I've seen a tag of theirs pimped from early April and wasn't sure if there's more than one or someone got the date mixed up.
