KnowYourEnemy Posted December 20, 2017 Share Posted December 20, 2017 It's time to flip the coin to the much easier side. Who is overrated in the C-Verse? This question can be interpreted in a number of ways. I'm going to be talking about workers who are often pegged as "main eventers" or "future main eventers" but never seem to pan out. You don't have to answer this question. I also didn't include the "smarky" wrestlers, because reasons. Tyson Baine is and has been overrated. He isn't that good in the ring and can't cut a promo. His star quality and overness sabotage USPW every month in the company wars. Yeah, I get people like to abuse Menace, but there are plenty of guys you can quickly hire with similar or better menace stats. Rick Law is and has been overrated. Bossman guy isn't. In a major company, he's an okay midcarder, but shouldn't be in the main event. In USPW, he's fairly far down the pole overall in star quality and won't carry a match. Like with Baine, his psychology falls on the right side of seventy, so he seems to get a pass on his average in-ring skills. Steven Parker is and has been overrated. In the SWF midcard, Parker is far from the top -- Spencer Spade, Scythe, Hellion, James Adams and Mikey Lau are more deserving of a push, and also much younger. And yet, players seem intent that "The Future", who recently turned thirty, deserves championship accolades. Now, he isn't a scrub, but he's far from the best prospect at this point in his career, and he also is locked in at middleweight, so he isn't going to rise or fall in star quality. The Dirty White Boys, Lead Belly and Grease Hogg, are overrated. I've always thought of them as the "store brand Nasty Boys" -- they've got tag experience, can brawl... and can't do much else. They lack the manager, the jackets or the look that made Jerry Sags and Brian Knobbs passable heels in WCW. Neither one has the stats to really consider a singles run unless pushed as a "monster of the week", and in CGC, they have several superior candidates. Felipe Caballero has been overrated for a while now. Many seem to think he's a top prospect, but from his in-ring skills to his entertainment skills to his star quality, he's fairly average compared to other wrestlers his age, and he never seems to develop that well in game. He's often paired in a prospect-with-prospect team with Xavi Ferrera, but Ferrera starts with better overall skills. Why push Felipe when you could push Mutant or Joffy Laine or Island Boy Apollo, and those are just the better prospects in FCW. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
