Re: The most Under/Overrated storylines/feuds?

Overrated would go to Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H, after Summerslam 2002 I stopped caring but the feud just dragged on and on, gimmick match after gimmick match, it was so tedious.

As for underrated, i'd give it to Eddie Guerrero Vs. Rey Mysterio, I know that people weren't big on the whole Dominic thing but even then it was interesting for me, despite being farfetch'd. Although the feud before all the Dominic stuff was absolutely brilliant, amazing matches to top it off with some brilliantly told storytelling by Eddie's amazing heel turn.

Re: The most Under/Overrated storylines/feuds?

Overrated - Cena vs Orton. They built it up like it was the next Rock/Austin and it failed. Cena looked better in every match, even though the majority of the crowd were cheering Orton. I was not impressed by their matches either. The best one they had was the Iron Man and let's face it, they had 60 minutes. That includes "segmentish" stunts like Orton trying to blow up Cena, the refs cleaning up Cena's blood for about 10 minutes. I don't even know if I would call that a match. Same goes for their Breaking Point match.

Raw Favourites: Natalya, Sheamus, Daniel Bryan, The Hart Dynasty, Evan Bourne, Justin Gabriel, CM Punk, Wade Barrett, The Miz.
Smackdown Favourites: MVP, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, Kaval, Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio, Drew McIntyre.

Overrated: Shawn Michaels v. Triple H. Triple H bores me to tears, and I don't feel as though ANY of the 38,000 matches between these two were all that good. Their best matches were the two involving Chris Benoit.

Underrated: Razor Ramon v. Goldust. This was a GREAT feud that really got Goldust over in a creepy, unsettling way. Razor Ramon was my favorite wrestler, and to see him deal with Goldust's harassment and unwanted advances, culminating with him losing the Intercontinental Title at the Royal Rumble, was frustrating but did the job of getting me to positively HATE Goldust.


God, this third hour of Raw really drags...

I agree with both of these.

Re: The most Under/Overrated storylines/feuds?

The most underrated storyline that comes to mind for me would be Mick Foley and Randy Orton from back in early 2004 which was the real breakthrough feud for Randy Orton in my opinion, Mick Foley really did do a great job of bringing Randy Orton up to a whole other level and i would say that their match from Backlash in 2004 whilst not the biggest he has been involved in may still be the best match that Randy Orton has had so far in his career.

As for the most overrated that would be quite easy for me and that would be Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H from in between 1999 and 2001 which whilst good was never the great storyline that it should have been and after Triple H was revealed to be the mastermind behind Stone Cold Steve Austin being run over at Survivor Series 1999 went backwards. Outside of Austin/Rock this was the biggest thing WWE could do back then and it just didn't hit the heights that it should have done in my opinion although the blow off match at No Way Out 2001 was great.
