Do you mean to tell me Meltzer's views are that of his own opinion and not fact? Go ahead and blow my mind why don't you.
There's no such thing as an official rating in the slightest. He's a man who knows his trivia and wrestling history.....but he doesn't know a better match than you or I. Every rating is entirely subjective, Meltzer could make a 30 minute review of why Taker/HHH is nearly a perfect match and Jawbreaker or someone else who differs in opinion could make just as good/if not better retort which convinces others to check out the match again.

Really this is a man who rated an Eddie/Mysterio SD WWE Title match in 2004 low because 'it wasn't Lucha'. Seriously what in the hell is that as a critique of the match? I get that because of his standing people think Dave Meltzer knows a better match than others but the truth is he doesn't. He's just a well known figure who publishes his own personal opinion of a series of matches, nothing more and nothing less.
