Sleeper/Underrated matches

What are some hidden gems that are really good matches or matches the you enjoy

RVD vs Tajiri for the Hardcore is a pretty good match both of their styles compliment each other very well



Benjamin vs John Morrison is another match where both men compliment each other and the flow of the match is pretty good fast at the start a good rest hold. John selling it pretty well.



Kurt vs Benjamin both have an amateur wrestling background and this match perfectly shows it off.



RVD vs Christain had some good spot and decent wrestling.

Re: Sleeper matches

Why is it called sleeper matches though? When I think of sleep I think of boring. Great list though.

It's slang for overlooking or underestimating, probably should change it to underrated lol

Underrated would've worked better imo.

People don't seem to talk much about Randy Savage vs The Honky Tonk man.

Re: Sleeper/Under rated matches

Tyson Kidd vs. Justin Gabriel from the NXT that aired 8/9/11 stands out to me as a match I expected to be a throwaway, but I ended up liking it to the extent that it's still a frequent re-watch for me almost 7 years later.

My Ratings System

DUD/No Stars = I hated it.

★ = I didn't like it.

★★ = Eh. It was there.

★★★ = I liked it.

★★★★ = I loved it.

★★★★★ = This is as good as wrestling gets.

Re: Sleeper/Under rated matches

Not sure if its underrated but one of my favourite WWE matches (not including NXT matches) is Daniel Bryan vs Dolph Ziggler from Bragging Rights 2010. Back then I didn't know much about either guy and was more interested on if who won and who lost but this is the earliest match that I remember that both guys wrestled and I just got invested in the action and didn't care who won.

Re: Sleeper/Under rated matches

My sleeper hit will always be Austin/Cactus/Funk/Owen vs Triple H/Outlaws/Savio from No Way Out 1998. Nobody talks about it, yet it was a hell of a lot of fun, really good match, great showcase for Austin. Can't say enough good things about it.
