A list of wrestlers Shinsuke Nakamura thinks are underrated in WWE

Shinsuke Nakamura WWE Network

A fun quote from the King of Strong Style, as told to SI:

“Honestly, most people in WWE are underrated. I can choose so many people. They have so much ability but can’t show everything on TV. Everybody has a great ability to wrestle, and you can see that at the house shows. Tye Dillinger, Shelton Benjamin, Primo and Epico, the Bludgeon Brothers, the New Day, they’re all underrated.”

It should be noted that “underrated” doesn’t necessarily mean “good,” as is often confused by many, but it seems clear he’s paying a compliment to each of the wrestlers mentioned here. And, really, all of them have shown they absolutely can be very good wrestlers if given the time. The problem, as Nakamura mentions, is they just don’t have the time to give all these very good wrestlers.

And that’s with five hours of first run programming each and every week, 52 weeks a year. And that’s before all the promised call ups happen to add even more talent into the mix.
