Shinsuke Nakamura Names Underrated WWE Superstars
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, former WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura named Superstars (on the current main roster) who according to him are underrated.
While there is an entire bunch of underrated main roster talent waiting for the big break and exposure in their respective WWE careers, The Artist was frank enough to name a few people in specific.
“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.”
