Underrated and Forgotten Promos Over the Years

I forgot how god tier Edge was during this until I just randomly came on it on YouTube

anyways Edge was Cena's best rival but for whatever reason they pretend it's Orton.

All of Randy Orton's promos during his 2009 feud with Triple H (around WM 25) The dude was on fire at that time.

Any promo that Punk did on Jeff Hardys drug addiction. That was solid gold, totally turned me around on Punk. I always used to say if you want me to like a wrestler, have them humiliate Jeff Hardy, that'll probably do the trick.

CM Punk’s promo delivery was just as good as Edge’s but I preferred Edge’s mannerisms and facial expressions.

Each to their own but yeah, I thought edge was better and looking at that promo you’ve reminded me how good he was.

Booker T’s promos as king booker are really undervalued. He was a jet, from his over the top pronounciation of King BOOKAHHH!! To his ridiculous English accent that was just so fucking bad, it was fucking amazing to his brilliant ability to stare off into space during his promo that made him look like he enjoyed smelling his own farts.

Dudes a genius !!

Glad you brought this up - Booker T is/was a performer that exceeded expectations across most areas IMO.

I loved the King Bookah gimmick - and to add to what you said, what put it into great territory was that when he would get angry he would put some of his regular accent back in to the British accent. Brilliant.
