Going with Ambrose.

Has yet to break out like he was hyped to do

Think it is definitely Axel from the standpoint of how much I kept hearing how he got so much better since the last time he was on T.V and he just really fell flat not having any really notable good matches and whenever he did talk he proved why he needed Heyman as a mouthpiece. He has truly offered nothing.

Dean Ambrose blows and I'm truly baffled as to why people are still lauding him as a future world champion.

Unfair to put RVD in this, I feel like he's had a decent comeback. Nobody on earth rates Curtis Axel either, how can he be 'overrated'.

Never really saw much of Ambrose before his debut but with all the hype he was getting I kinda expected much more from him. People were treating him like a messiah of wrestling and thus far both Rollins & Reigns have outshone him in the shield alone.

Also do people really rate guys like Ryback? With his losing record I believe even the WWE don't really rate him. No one really rates Axel or Swagger either do they?

People have no idea what "overrated" and "underrated" mean.

Went with Punk because while I'm still a big fan of the guy, people rate him insanely high and he hasn't had near as good of a year as the past few.

My vote for Curtis Axel is but a non-violent protest of the lack of Bray Wyatt on this list.

Axel was rated though before he got recalled back up and when he first got put with Heyman. If you look back in threads you'll see guys on this forum talking about how much he improved and how good his matches are going to be with this guy and that guy and it just didn't translate at all based on that.

And I still don't see why because I was one of those guys. I still blame the booking because there's no way he can have amazing matches with Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater but not with Punk.

I'll agree booking didn't do him any favors he was kind of screwed from the start on that but regardless guy just ended up being very dry to me on all aspects. Thought he would at least get busy in ring wise if nothing else cause there has been guys who have been booked badly but still put on good matches for the most part.

And he did...on Smackdown and Main Event. What opportunity did he even have to put on a good high profile match? All his stuff was marred with Heyman interfering or Ryback interfering and he never got a real chance to just wrestle. I agree that he was overrated and part of that is his fault, but I don't think he's to blame for the most part.

I'll have to find those matches then cause guess I missed them. And yeah I won't say it is all his fault like I said he was fucked from the start with the count out shit and how he has been handled since. I just didn't get any flashes from him that screamed that I'm being unjustifiably held down. My main point though was against the thought that he couldn't be overrated cause he wasn't rated.
