Overated "Classics"In the past, there have been many threads asking what matches are the greatest ever,worst ever, and most overlooked. However, this post will be different addresing matches that you feel got all hype from people as being wonderful and didn't live up to the hype of many internet Marks/Smarks.

In my opinion the most overrated matches are:

Ric Flair vs Ricky Steamboat (NWA Wrestlewar 89)-

Let me just say that I loved their first 2 out of 3 falls encounter at Clash of the Champions that year to death, but this rematch, while very good did not live up to the hype many people bestoyed on it. First of All, It lacked the Physchology and the spontanuity of the Clash encounter. Also, I heard people brag about the faster pace of it which I think was a crock. It moved about the same speed as the Clash match, but was just shorter. Finally, the storyline was tainted already from the Dusty finish in the previous match. It still was about **** 1/2 in my book.

Any Jerry Lynn vs Rob Van Dam match

If you ask any ECW mutant what the best series of matches in ECW history was, most of the time, they would say Rob Van Dam vs Jerry Lynn. I don't agree. Most of their matches consisted of Stalling and fast paced suicidal moves by Van Dam that never seemed to hit Lynn. Van Dam usually just laid on the floor for about a minute into Jerry Lynn picks him up and tries to exhibit some technical and weapons based maunuevers while Van Dam was no-selling every minute of it.

Then, they would stall some more until the 20 minute mark when the match picked up a little bit and Lynn did his usual carryjob of Van Dam who would by a miracle hit a Van-Daminator and ***** Frog Splash while Bill Alphonso just rang his whistle as annoyingly as he did earlier in the match.

In conclusion, the first 10 or so minutes of the matches would be stalling with occasional "action" and constant no-selling by Dam until Lynn finally picks up the match and makes Van Dam look coherent and himself look like very good.

Marty Jannety vs Shawn Micheals RAW is War 1993- The match is very dated in Retrospect in comparsion to latter Shawn Micheals contests and the near falls added very little to it with a lack of physcology.

P.S. I'm sorry if my thread didn't work last time, it must have been some glitch.

well when you put it all in retrospect, all the video packages and build ups make matches that we think are going to be amazing...ehh not so great. It has happened a lot recently in the WWE at almost every pay per view. Now i can go on and on with overrated matches, but i will say some that i pointed out specifically.

King Of The Ring 1998 Mankind vs Undertaker

ahhh yes the unforgettable Hell In A Cell. By far a bloody brutal match, with foleys biggest bump ever. What needs to be realized though is that the Hell In A Cell is not just a pain inflictor, theres another part of it which is the match itself, if they focused a little more on the match and used less weapons, this would of been an unforgetable match, and not just an unforgetable fall.

Wrestlemania 9 Bret vs Yokozuna

how could we forget JIM ROSS's FIRST EVER PAY PER VIEW. well we should because it was the worst wresltemania ever. I'm not going to get too in detail but overal the match sucked, and Hogan won on a fluke, bottom line didnt look anything like a main event

thats all you will hear from me

the ruler of the world is...IM GONNA BLOW YOU AWAY

With all this talk of "Where it all begins...again" and the WWE's supposed return to a more mat-based, story-telling style of pro wrestling...does this mean that the NWA may have a chance?
