    Do people rate Nakamura vs. Styles or the Cena/Rock matches?

    It's not overrated because pretty much everyone has willingly admitted that it wasn't great.

    I should rephrase. If it were a barnburner, it would still be viewed as overrated because of how it was hyped. But indeed, it was only a passable match.

    Edit: Ugh, I misread you OYDK. You are right, I've yet to see anyone sing this matches praises.

    I think it was John Cena who said ''If you then the volume down and watch that match then it's the worst matches ever, however, watch it was the volume up and hear the fans reaction and it's one of the greatest matches of all time''.

    I think he's bang on the money with that statement.

    This one will probably be somewhat controversial but I'm going with Okada vs. Omega from Wrestle Kingdom 11. Not that it wasn't a good match but wrestling if often subjective and I saw a number of matches last year that I thought were better including Cena vs. Styles, Omega vs. Naito, Bate vs. Dunne, WarGames, Black vs. Dream and some others. I suppose it also stems from Uncle Dave breaking his own rating system and declaring this, at one point, possibly the greatest match in the history of professional wrestling. Too often I felt that the match was purposely going on just for the sake of being an extremely long match and would've felt much slicker if they'd cut about 15 minutes off it.

    John Cena vs. Shawn Michaels from WrestleMania 23. Most recognise their match from a few weeks later in London as superior, but still herald this as Cena's best match at Mania etc... For me it's perfectly well and good, but not much different than most main event matches, and the match between Batista and Undertaker which went on as the first half main event was in my mind significantly better and more entertaining. It also helped they ended up in the feud of the year with a series of one-on-one encounters.

    Angle/Benoit (Royal Rumble 2003): Maybe I need to give it another watch, but to me it was just another great match from the two.

    Any hour long iron man match: Too long for my attention span.

    Steamboat/Savage: Another great match, but it gets GOAT status because it was an NWA-esque fight that no WWF fan at the time has seen.

    Yeah I've seen this applauded by many including KB (no offense) but I've watch it countless times and haven't been that blown away by it. My favorite match of theirs in Unforgiven 2002.
