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

You know when a feud looks great on paper and like it's gonna be HUGE... but turns out to be disappointing?

What immediately comes to my mind first is the Cena vs. Orton feud. I remember people online wondering when those two were finally gonna feud back in 2005-2006. People were VERY interested in seeing a big feud like this one day. People expected it to be the Rock vs. Austin of its generation... but it really wasn't. It was a big enough feud, but I can't say I cared much about it. I personally find Orton a bit too bland, and he could also be almost as annoying as Cena at times. Plus, none of the Cena vs. Orton matches I saw were that great and they wrestled each other WAY too often.

I found Edge, Punk and Rock much better bitter rivals for Cena, imo.

I'm gonna guess everyone is gonna mention the Invasion angle, which is a very valid choice which I agree with entirely, but I'm not gonna talk about feuds that happened before I started watching wrestling. And by the time I watched Invasion stuff I already knew the letdown it was gonna be, so I can't say I was expecting more out of what WWE gave us.

What about you? What's, to you, the most underwhelming feud of all time?

Edge vs Christian and Jeff vs Matt for me are tied.

Sheamus Del Rio in 2012. Roster was so thin that the feud went nearly 6 months

All I remember was a Heel turn that didn't follow up.

Pretty much 95% of all feuds the last decade.
