    IndyPuro Most Underrated Match

    Which match was the most underrated in 2010? Was it because the consensus is that it wasn't good and you disagree? Or because you believe it's better than matches that do get praise?

    Well.....what does this count for? Matches here or matches that just flat out don't get any love period despite being really great?

    Re: Most Underrated Match

    There's several meanings. Remember when Davey was simultaneously nominated for most overrated and underrated because he was considered underrated on this forum, but overrated everywhere else?

    Whatever you feel strongest about.

    Re: Most Underrated Match

    Well Richards vs. Black and Daniels vs. Omega are EXTREMELY underrated here. Every where else is freaking Hero vs. Shelly from PWG As The Worm turns. Match gets no love while I consider it the match of the night.

    Re: Most Underrated Match

    czw home sweet home-adam cole vs sonjay dutt.
    Really good match and Cole held his own with Sonjay and after the match Sonjay put Cole over

    czw tangled web 3-AR fox vs ruckus. Same as the home sweet home match but with some great high flying

    Brandon Bonham vs millachi jackson pwg-titantica
    good and inovative.

    I actually agree on this. This and Taylor vs. Gatson from the same show. I was expecting really bad matches but they were very fun. Gatson & Taylor should of ended about one minute early but I thought it was Gatson's best match.

    Re: Most Underrated Match

    Lol. Bonham/MJ was awful.

    Green Ant versus Pinkie Sanchez from A Touch of Class was my first thought. Is Bonham/Cage praised much?

    Re: Most Underrated Match

    Sami Callihan vs Rasche Brown is definitely one of my candidates. A ***1/2-3/4 match that I've seen rated as nothing more than a squash or like a terrible match elsewhere. Both men's best match from their time in ROH.

    No it wasn't. For a match that should of been the most awful match of all time, it was actually a good contest. Don't get me wrong, not a match of the night or even in that range but it totally wasn't a bad match.

    Re: Most Underrated Match

    There are a lot of matches I liked that didn't get much play either here or on the internet at large, but alot I wouldn't expect to get much play.

    I like Sami vs Brown as a good shout. ROH is still massively followed unlike CHikara undercards or IWA:MS, and it got no praise and wouldn't have done without Mark pimping it. Pretty much the definition of an over-looked match, and one that was probably in the top 10 ROH matches of the year.

    Yeah...I was in agreement until that part. There were still 3 better matches than it on Bitter Friends Stiffer Enemies 2.

    Re: Most Underrated Match

    It was probably the best ROH match not in the Steen/Generico feud or involving the KoW atleast, and when you take out Davey/Black/Roddy.... yeah it probably was up there. Or top 20 at the absolute least.

    Re: Most Underrated Match

    Just watched Bonham/Malachi and don't see what's wrong with it. I wouldn't say it was good, but there wasn't anything wrong besides a couple minor spots and Malachi looking green.

    czwfan calling it "inovative" baffles me, though.

    Goodtime/LTP vs Malachi/Taylor was better.

    Actually Goodtime/LTP vs Bucks would also be a good shout for this award.

    Re: Most Underrated Match

    Like every PWG opener from this year could be up for this. Sabin/Roderick from As The Worm Turns also. I saw it on someones MOTY list (God, I think?) a couple months ago, but other than that I rarely see it praised.

    Also, is there going to be a most overrated match?
