I thought this would be a great topic to discuss underrated heels from the WWE history, honestly one of the first that comes to mind for me is Sgt Slaughter, specially during his whole Wrestlemania VII stint he did alongside Hogan.
During this time Slaughter took on an incredibly risky role really, considering the time the gulf war was in full force, you have this American dude who is supporting Saddam Hussein and defacing Hogan's shirt by burning it live on TV (Slaughter was asked to deface the flag but felt he couldn't go that far so opted to burn Hogan's shirt instead, which as we know Hogan stood for America with his gimmick also), bare in mind that American people are very patriotic also and at this time, people didn't completely know how real wrestling was back then (of course they had an idea but it's not out there like it is now), it was an incredibly risky role for Sgt Slaughter to take on that he played with confidence and real well, something I feel he's under credited for way too much.
In the ring he wasn't bad either, I always thought Slaughter was immense at taking bumps (specially those corner turn buckle bumps) and he was pretty solid on the mic too, Slaughter is definitely one of the first heel wrestlers that come to mind for me who I feel is incredibly underrated.
What are your thoughts and who in WWE history do you feel is underrated?
