Five most underrated WWE superstars of all timeLast updated on Dec 29, 2018, 08:34 pm
Not all talented performers are destined for the ultimate glory.
While some reach pinnacles of stardom without even being worthy of all the fame and fortune, other deserving candidates keep grasping at straws.
There have been such cases in WWE as well, where a wrestler's growth has been strangled when he deserved to be on the top.
We bring to you five such instances.
William Regal was a fine wrestling talent WWE never boosted
Hardcore wrestling fans know his worth, but when discussing WWE and WCW's most successful performers, the name of William Regal hardly comes up.
Regal had the trademarks of an icon- he could wrestle well, had great on-mic skills, and constantly delivered high-quality promos.
Though he is never considered among the legends, the Englishman seems to have settled well into his role as NXT Commissioner.
Drugs and health problems clouded Brian Pillman's career
Brian Pillman is another supremely talented but underrated performer who brought new flair to the cruiserweight division in wrestling.
Even though he was a part of the feud that almost kick-started the Attitude Era, Pillman never became the star he deserved to be.
Pillman was the one who showed WWE how well-crafted promos can boost storytelling to a large extent and garner huge following.
Bam Bam Bigelow
Bam Bam Bigelow was quite underrated considering his wrestling talent
Bigelow had all that is required to be successful in WWE- he was a large 300-pound man gifted with immense wrestling abilities, but he never managed to win any title with the company.
Bigelow was successful in the earlier promotions he worked at, like NWA, but WWE never acknowledged his immense potential, thus resulting in him quitting the promotion.
Physique, looks, athleticism, Lance Storm had it all
Lance Storm had a great physique, something Vince McMahon really admires.
He was also someone who could perform difficult moves in the ring with ease, and was doing well as a heel in WWE.
However, Storm was never given that ultimate push by the company despite his immense talent.
Thus, he ended his run with the company and went back to the independent circuit.
Shelton Benjamin deserved a lot more than what he got
Benjamin had a solid foundation in amateur wrestling and his in-ring work was brimming with finesse, every single time he performed.
Benjamin boasted of immense athleticism and power, resulting in the Wrestling Observer naming him the "Most Underrated Wrestler" thrice.
He won the Intercontinental title and the Tag Team Championship, but considering what Benjamin was capable of, he deserved a whole lot more.
