With that said, tbf, if there were people ranking your comparison point, Shots Umino, in the Top 50 wrestlers in the world for 2017, I'd call him overrated just the same. But nobody is doing that. Of course, this could just be a bubble thing and I'm ranting against fringe minorities. I'll cop to doing that from time to time, too.
The man is underrated.
Seriously though, I am curious if you could name five wrestlers all-time that have a better match quality resume than Dream @ 22 years old...and I will fully agree with you on your actual criticisms...because he does have a habit of botching and he does lose steam after about 10 minutes. But he offsets that with a mastery of his character that is incredibly rare for anyone at any age. He's got a lot of the little things down that is simply missing in many WWE wrestlers today.
