Most Underwhelming Battles?

What are some battles that for all intents and purposes should've been at least good, if not great, but ended up being lackluster for one reason or another? Not even for chokes and shit, just performances that didn't live up to the hype.

The battle that I was just re-watching that made me think of this was Bender vs. Soul, I fuck with both of those guys heavy but man that battle was seriously lacking

A lot of people like this battle, but Bigg K vs B Magic was pretty underwhelming to me.

I felt like Bigg K gave 75% and B Magic gave 50%. It could've been a classic main stage battle on URL.

DFs champs have had their fair share:
RD vs Tony D
Soul vs Caustic

Then there are the battles that had history but disappointed :
Okwerdz vs Rex
Pesci vs Bender
Calicoe vs Pat
Budden vs Hollow

All of these had so much hype, but the result was mediocre at best.

surf vs roc was good. bender vs pesci and bender vs soul shoulda been better. tbh i thought qp vs chilla jones should have been better than it was.

Fingers is not the worst person
Aye Verb vs Swave
Aye Verb vs K-Shine
Aye Verb vs Arsonal
Big T vs Charlie Clips
Tsu Surf vs Calicoe

These 5 should've been absolute BlockBusters, but failed to deliver with replay value, or outstanding moments.

Bender vs Thesaurus, mostly because of Bender and an awesome setting that kind of backfired (I feel like Saurus feeds off of crowd reaction, and ummm).

Head ICE vs Swave. This was ICE's resurgence but these heavyweights fell flat.

Man, there are a lot more too.

Budden vs Hollow for sure.

I felt Calicoe vs Pat was dope.

It's probably obvious or maybe I was alone, but I was expecting massive things iut of Canibus vs Dizaster. Clips vs Lux was a real let down although holds up a little better now (on luxs side at least). Bender vs Soul and I'll probably be crucified but I really expected more from Solomon vs Magic. Didn't like that at all fron either. Anything with Mook in.

Surf vs Roc was actually super underwhelming IMO
Jc vs Yung ILL
Clips vs Lux
Big T vs O Red
Verb Vs Goodz
Verb vs Surf
Clips vs Red
Reed vs Chess
JJDD vs Roc
Prez vs Wavy
DNA vs Ill will... this battle hurt my heart. One of the biggest upsets OAT.
Most of Clips catalogue tbh.
Rone vs Illmaculate

I could go on and go on..


I think since 2012 I've been more disappointed with battles that were supposed to be good and surprised by battles that gave no indication they were gonna be fire.

Ness Lee vs RemyD definitely.

I didn't really expect Aye Verb vs Illmac to be good because Verb was on a run of off form battles and obviously didn't care about KOTD.

Bender vs The Saurus was a sick battle, the choke was a shame but I still enjoyed it and the setting was cool.

I actually like okwerdz vs trex and pat vs calicoe. Both had crazy moments and I revisit once in a while
