Underrated: Superstars without their due

Tito Santana, chosen by Ezekiel Jackson

JACKSON: "I remember the reaction I felt when Tito Santana came out as the torero with the bullfighting outfit. You know, 'Ole!' I remember how excited I got when I saw that, but today you don't hear much about him. You don't hear that he was an Intercontinental Champion, that he was a World Tag Team Champion. He was one of those dudes I liked. He was in the first match at WrestleMania. I just remember him being somebody that I liked, and today doesn't get that respect or recognition that I think he deserves."

WWE CLASSICS: There is no question that "El Matador" Tito Santana was one of WWE's most exceptional performers for nearly 15 years. His first taste of success came when he won the World Tag Team Championship along with Ivan Putski by defeating WWE Hall of Famers The Valiant Brothers. Santana had memorable Intercontinental Championship wins over two more WWE Hall of Famers, Don Muraco and Greg Valentine, becoming the first Mexican American to win the prestigious title. Although he lost it in a fierce bout with "Macho Man" Randy Savage at the Boston Garden, he found tremendous popularity as a member of Strike Force with Rick Martel, including besting The Hart Foundation for the World Tag Team Championship. Following his split with Martel, Santana became King of the Ring in 1989 by defeating his former parter, and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005. Due to this litany of accolades, and his extreme popularity at the height of his career, Santana must be considered not underrated.
