The 20 Most Underrated WWE Superstars and Divas
20. Paul Orndorff
The lack of a major push in the WWE for Paul Orndorff may be one of the most surprising things in the company’s long history. Orndorff had the statuesque body that the WWE loves, and his Mr. Wonderful gimmick was one of the best in the company at the time.
Orndorff was no slouch in the ring either. His great feud with Hulk Hogan in 1985 and 1986 is considered one of the best in wrestling history. This great feud is also what propelled Hulk Hogan to his massive superstar status. Despite all of that, Paul Orndorff never won a single championship during his nearly 10 year run in the WWE.
19. Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston has the body type and move set that typically gets overlooked by the WWE. Kingston has consistently proven that he can carry a championship belt in the WWE with his four reigns at Intercontinental Champion and four reigns with the Tag Team Championship. Despite the solid championship runs, Kofi Kingston has never got away from his mid-card status in the WWE.
Kingston has become one of the biggest fan favorites in the WWE right now with his work in The New Day, but history says he will not receive the push he deserves.
18. Billy Kidman
Billy Kidman consistently put on great matches in the WCW and WWE using his high flying skill set. Kidman’s small size and lack of memorable gimmick meant he was destined to stay in the mid-card his whole career.
He had four reigns as WWE Cruiserweight Champion and one reign with the Tag Team Titles, but that was the peak of Kidman’s career in the WWE. Jeff Hardy and Rey Mysterio advanced to the top of the company with a similar resume, but the push never came for Billy Kidman. The WWE has since recognized his great skills as a wrestler by employing him as a producer and road agent.\
