Most Underrated WrestlerWho hasn't gotten their due?

  1. If I remember correctly, they wanted to but he didn't want to change his gimmick. They couldn't come to an agreement, so he got released and left wrestling to become a teacher.

    Still reeks of wasted potential, though. Dude could've been a big star.

    I don't understand why they didn't just send him back to Raw. From what I understand, the issue was that UPN had a problem with him being on their network. Spike TV evidently had no such issue because he was doing more or less the same shit on there for months without incident. I remember the stipulation being "if Muhammad Hassan loses, he'll never show his face on Smackdown again." Even my 10-11 year old brain was able to register that they specified Smackdown and there was no reason he couldn't be on Raw.

  2. I would have liked to have seen Steve Blackman ascend to the level above that of the janitor in WWF. He had a good look to him, he inspired at least mild interest from the crowd with his glow-stick routine before his matches. He knocked JBL the fuck out in an airport. He even went undefeated for nearly a year after his debut... though it didn't amount to much. He was pigeon-holed into the same routine that Lance Storm was, that of a boring straight man to those with more influence.

  3. The sad thing about Storm is that while he will never be mistaken for Dusty Rhodes on the mic, he is an engaging likable guy. I used to read his blog back in the WCW/ECW days and listened to his podcast. He was saddled with some shitty gimmicks when he could have just gone back to his ECW/SMW gimmick

  4. Check out the podcast he does with Don Callus (Cyrus the Virus/Jackal). They talk about a lot of their careers in a fair light.

    Edit: Unless you listen to this already. Ignore my exceptional post, otherwise.

  5. Kanyon. Entertaining, pretty good on the mic, good worker, interesting/innovative move set.

    Had a shitty construction worker gimmick, a shitty Mortal Kombat gimmick, a pretty okay run as himself when he feuded with Raven which transitioned to a pretty okay run with Paige and Bigelow, a quite funny but not overly substantial DDP parody gimmick and just as he seemed to be getting things back on the right track with a serious, edgier gimmick, WCW folded. He was brought in to WWE, buried along with most of the rest of WCW talent during the Invasion and utterly wasted from that point on with his last prominent role being a throwaway gay joke; a rib based on his real life homosexuality.

    He could've been a lot more, possibly even a main eventer if he had ever been given a proper, serious gimmick and a push. He had an idea for presenting himself as a gay wrestler but one that fought against stereotypes. Had he been 5-10 years younger and hit his prime that much later, it may have had legs since that's where the culture zeitgeist was at the time, but people in 1999-2005 were not ready for it.

  12. Hassan was amazing. They never should've gone the terrorist route, as it made no sense. He had a perfect gimmick as the non-white heel, but yet he was still American and could've gone over as a babyface.

    Sadly, he was booked to win the title from Batista at Summerslam, too
