Every 5 Star Wrestling Match...Ever...

Tuesday, September 15, 2015



I rate wrestling matches, as one does.  I've rated 50+ matches at 5 stars.  If you don't see a match here that you believe to be 5 stars, there are three possibilities.

1. I haven't seen it.
2. I've seen it.  It's a 5 star match.  I've just forgotten to put it here.
3. It's not a five star match.

3 is most likely; there aren't too many super elite matches I just haven't seen.  It's probable that I've scored it below 5 stars. My non WWF/WCW record keeping is not complete for sub 5 star matches, so were you to say "what did you give to X" I wouldn't necessarily know, but if there are queries I'd give it a shot.  Ain't nothing wrong with a 4 3/4 star match.  That's not a slight.  Someone says "hey, do you want to watch this 4 3/4 star match, I'm gonna say yes, yes, yes, I would like to watch that match, yes."  It's just not quite 5.  I give fewer five star matches than do most people, admittedly.  I try to limit the grade inflation.
