That they lack either the skills or charisma to justify the time they get in the spotlight.

Overhypes could be one of two things. 1. When a wrestler is performing and over exaggerates when being hit or doing a move. Ex. Shawn Micheals when he faced Hogan at SummerSlam '05(?) or 2. Someone like Ryback for example when he was first introduced as Ryback. Yes, he was cool and everything. Yes, he was strong, but they kept building him up as one of the toughest and strongest competitors out there when in reality, he only faced local opponents. Local opponents aren't REAL competition in the WWE. Yea, Ryback picked up 2 competitors at times, but they weren't big name, heavyweight wrestlers. Now that he is actually fighting a big name star, he isn't considered overhyped anymore.

I think it means when a wrestler gets far to much attention, too much promotion, when people keep talking about something, and it may not be worth the attention it kinda like when Alberto del rio made his debut everyone keeped saying how great he was gonna be.
