When it comes to underrated superstars in the WWE, fans and critics alike are going to have differing opinions on those that are underrated or even underused.

Although those that are underrated continue to shine and fly under the radar without many rewards, things could be changing in the near future.


As announced by the McMahon family some weeks ago on Monday Night RAW, things are being shaken up in WWE with call-ups and fantastic match-ups.

We've perhaps seen a popular case of an underrated name receiving well-deserved attention over on SmackDown LIVE, with Mustafa Ali officially graduating from 205 Live to the blue brand.

Not only that, but Rusev was finally given a slight push again now that he's the United States Champion, so fans will be hoping that those that are commonly underrated will go on to thrive.

Shinsuke Nakamura recently took part in an interview with Sports Illustrated, discussing his idol Jushin Thunder Liger and how he actually got into the wrestling business.

What may come as a slight surprise is that The King of Strong Style didn't mention the usual name when he gave his take on underrated stars in the WWE.


Instead, he named The Bludgeon Brothers, Tye Dillinger, Shelton Benjamin, the New Day as well as Primo and Epica as underrated stars in all of WWE.


According to Wrestling Inc, he said: "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."

Nakamura also went on to pour cold water on the idea that he's leaving WWE soon and could be heading back to Japan, although it remains to be seen whether that's actually the case yet or not.

For the names mentioned, they'll be happy that someone as popular and as talented as Nakamura has publicly admitted how talented they are - and the fans can see that too.
