Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose. My expectations were sky high. The heel turn was extremely dark, emotionally gripping and effective. Everything after that stunk like shit and the WWE will literally never have another opportunity to recreate the conditions that led to such an emotionally charged moment, if we're lucky. What a waste

Good answers all. I liked the Matt/Jeff match from WrestleMania XXV more than many seemed to, but yeah, the feud was no fun. Edge/Christian was just flaccid, Cena/Orton felt like a sad attempt to recreate Austin/Rock, and the less said about Sheamus/Del Rio, the better.

I'll throw another one out there: Sgt. Slaughter v. Hulk Hogan from 1990-1991. A lot of it was in poor taste vis a vis the war in Iraq, Hogan had seriously cooled off as a babyface, and fan interest was so soft that they had to abandon running the LA Coliseum. It was the first Hogan WrestleMania match and feud that didn't really work.

HHH vs Orton both times and neither did anything for Orton.

Re: What would you say is the most underwhelming feud of all time?

Bryan vs Miz

They had a great set up for the feud but WWE just totally did everything that could be bad for the whole feud, involving wives and making Bryan look weak as a face.

Orton vs Cena

Should have been the feud both these guys were remembered for but ended up having a ton of matches and the fan's just been bored.

Nakamura vs Styles

Just was there, and should have been a ton better.

Punks Vs Jericho

Just never clicked for me, strange considering both guys are great at what they do.

For me, I would have to say Shawn Michaels and Hulk Hogan feud, it was underwhelming and it did not last long either

Re: What would you say is the most underwhelming feud of all time?

The ones I remember:

AJ vs Kevin (idk what it was about it, maybe Shane or something, but it was so underwhelming, even KO vs Braun was better imo)

Ambrose/Rollins vs the Bar (they had so many matches it became stale. The in-ring segment amounted to “X gets ambushed by Bar. Y comes out to save X”.

Ambrose vs Rollins (due to Ambrose’s botched heel turn)

Finn vs Bray
