I'm not talking about wrestling angles like Sting vs Hogan that resulted in a 1.9 PPV buyrate for Starrcade. What is the greatest angle in your opinion that never caught on with the fans, or that for some reason the big payoff at a PPV resulted in disappointing numbers, or a fantastic angle that did the WWE (or any other company) more bad then good?

I'd say the ECW invasion of 1997

Summer of Punk is argubly one of the best angles of the last several years, so I am gonna go with that. But also the Hart Foundation angle in 1997, no one ever brags on how great a heel Bret Hart was and his group, made for a great summer that year.

I have no idea in terms of buyrates because I'm not some idiot who studies these things - but in terms of how often it's mentioned - I don't see Undertaker's feud with Brock mentioned too often (bar when someone says WOT WAS BEST HELL IN DA CELL LOL) - great feud which in my eyes really pushed Brock out as the top man in the company by overcoming Taker.

Plus, what a PPV promo! Up there with WM X7 IMO (although not better than!)

Steamboat vs. Savage at Mania 3 is ridiculously underrated to Andre vs. Hogan. The only others are I personally think X-pac and Al Snow were always extremely underrated.

I really think the invasion angle was real underrated. Many people hated it cause it wasnt the "real WCW", but it was the real ECW, and the real WWF in the storyline.


When you think of the actual events and everything that happened for those several months, it was real great. Every single match/segment meant something.

Speaking of Rey Mysterio, his feud with Eddie on Smackdown in 2005 over Dominic was very underrated as well.
