Underrated WWE Feuds That Added Excitement To The Promotion
By JACK GOODWILLIE
Orton vs. Kingston
The 10-year feud between Kofi Kingston and Randy Orton began with Orton and The Legacy bullying Kingston until he finally stood up against the faction. Their feud finally ended after the WWE Champion Kingston defeated Orton at the 2019 SummerSlam.
Savage vs. Honky Tonk Man
The feud between Honky Tonk Man and Randy Savage solidified the legendary status of both wrestlers, allowing Savage to create The Mega Powers with Hulk Hogan and helping Honky to have the longest Intercontinental Championship reign in WWF history. The two men faced each other 93 times between 1986 and 1990, and their chemistry was amazing.
Mysterio vs. Ziggler
When Dolph Ziggler began a feud with the IC Champion Rey Mysterio, he elevated himself from his cheesy heel comedic character by attacking the champion. The two had a very good match at Night of Champions 2009, but it was outshone by a sequel at SummerSlam that legitimized Ziggler in the ring and shaped his career.
Undertaker vs. Jeff Hardy
In 2002, a frustrated Jeff Hardy provoked The Undertaker, which led to their famed ladder match for ‘Taker’s Undisputed Championship. No matter what The Deadman threw at Hardy, he kept coming back for more which earned him the respect of the legend, and the match ended with a beautiful moment of ‘Taker raising Hardy’s hand.
Doink the Clown vs. Crush
Doink was an evil clown character, infamous for his heinous pranks, until the physically dominant babyface, Crush, confronted him. After the clown incapacitated Crush with a prosthetic arm, they faced off at WrestleMania IX, but a second Doink interfered and hit Crush with the same prosthetic limb that had previously injured him.
