Not that I'm capable of successful threadjacking, but I didn't want to distract too much at the regular blog. I was typing in a response to another post, and it got me thinking: Who is the most underrated wrestler? Better yet, who do we, the smart marks, underrate more than anyone else?
Alberto Del Rio? Del Rio knows how to wrestle very well, has sharp mic skills (once he got past the destiny schtick), and has a semi-impressive MMA background. Yet, we crap on him every chance we get.
Rey Mysterio? Future Hall of Famer who has had countless 4-plus star matches. Yet, we never throw his name around with any of the greats.
We could list half the WWE roster as guys who are "underrated" when we really mean underutilized. That's easy. But with some introspection, who do we not give enough respect in terms of current wrestlers?
