NJPW, ECW or ROH, i can make a legit case for either.
There's WAY too much emphasis on the sports aspect of NJPW, not much in the way of angles or character work, there's no balance at all.
ECW was ok, i felt like they had a good flow with their shows, but people blow It out of proportions, there's nothing compelling or larger than life about fat jobbers like Raven and The Sandman, it was far from the ideal pro wrestling experience. It also has the biggest cult following which doesn't help their case.
ROH, historically is a little bit of both (i don't follow it anymore), and the thing that puts it over the top are the 45 minute fake epic matches, and long winded amateur hour promos, with bland overrated fucks like Bryan Danielson and Austin Aries stinking up the joint.
ROH is the lock for n.1 for my taste.

You know what, with milions of people enjoying it from 06 and on, you have a point. But you have to take into account they have a large contengent of casual fans and kid fans, It's not an even playing field.

Re: Most overrated wrestling company of all time

Honestly, I can't find any overrated companies. It is a matter of taste. Many of us started watching wrestling when we were children with WWF or ECW. From there, everyone has been looking for what they like about each company and following the one they like best. There are many companies that do not know the vast majority and many wrestlers that we are free, that we also have our market niche but I don't think that's why we have to talk about overvalued companies.

LU for me. It was pretty much a ripoff of WMAC masters. And the fans invading the WWE and TNA boards even when they made a board for them was annoying as hell.

Re: Most overrated wrestling company of all time

ECW is the only defunct company that still holds up today, at least as far as the 96/96 season. And yes, Raven and Dreamer WERE larger than life. They captured the spirit of the decade years before Steve did it on a larger platform.

Re: Most overrated wrestling company of all time

There is no such thing as overrated companies in wrestling. All wrestling promotions have highs and lows so it is a matter of taste.

Re: Most overrated wrestling company of all time

AEW. A company built around Stardust, his wife and the his Elite geek buddies pretending to be serious execs. Add in a 50 year old Y2J, a roster full of the most smaller than life indy flippy shit spot monkies you could find and Ambrose. People are acting like it’s the greatest can’t miss company they’ve ever seen and will put Vince out of business before they’ve even had a year to prove themselves capable of pulling network ratings. The definition of overrated.

Patiently waiting for the Attitude Era to return
