There are guys like William Regal, Christian, Owen Hart and others who have been called underrated by many people around here and are discussed constantly

What about the underrated, underrated guys? Guys who were good workers but are rarely talked about even by the IWC

One that stands out in my mind is D-Lo Brown. Was he an amazing in-ring talent or an epic promo cutter? No. But he could definitely work a great match and wasn't bad on the stick either. He was also very charismatic back in the day. There aren't many guys (atleast not at the time in North America) that could effectively blend his style of power wrestling and highflying, and his time on the indy circuit proved he isn't a bad mat/chain wrestler

In 98/99 D-Lo Brown was arguably the company's top midcard act. He had multiple runs as European Champion and was the first to hold it simultaneously with the Intercontinental Championship. He has a surprising amount of strong matches against guys like Val Venis, X-Pac and Jeff Jarrett. And nobody could deny that the dude was WAY over. The chest protector gimmick was classic!


So what are some other wrestlers that you guys feel are criminally forgotten about

I barely here the Dynamite Kid get a mention on this forum. If he was a North-American he would be raved about but because he's English, he slips under the radar.

Dynamite Kid should be worshipped. He was so fucking far ahead of his time and all American and fellow European wrestlers. No one is more imitated than Dynamite.

Not enough people talk about Yuji Nagata.

Yeah, D'Lo was awesome. I kinda wish he would've stayed as The Rock's right hand man, because he was hilarious!

The Rock would be cutting some awesome promo about how he's the best I-C Champ ever, and D'lo would be in the background shaking his head and mugging for the camera!

Like this...




One guy people don't really talk about is Billy Kidman. Back in the WCW days, he was awesome! He had so many great matches with Mysterio, Juvi, Eddie.

He never really got an opportunity to shine in the WWE. He had that great Tag Match with Rey against WGTT, and that was pretty much it.

He had that really unfortunate botched SSP against Chavo, and pretty much was never the same after that.

People don't talk enough about Paul London. Anyone remember the "Please Don't Die" chants back in his ROH days ? THAT was awesome.

but silus fucking sucked

There are lots of wrestlers the IWC skips over. Lou thesz rarely gets a mention, same with most of the older wrestlers, because of the average age of the IWC

Ernest "The Cat" Miller. Very overlooked talent in the prime years of WCW.

Also any midcarders from the Attitude Era. Say what you will about their gimmicks or lack of technical skills but those guys knew alot more about working a match and getting over than the green bodybuilders and indie spotmonkeys of today.
