Not really. It looks like that, because he tells a lot of things, which are common knowledge anyway. Therefore, his wrong stuff (Harper is done) seems to be a minority.
No I'm talking about stuff that nobody saw coming. Not his idle speculation which, again, he does not present as facts or legitimate predictions
like Harper being done. I'm talking about when nobody saw Finn Balor's push coming and he reported it minutes into the show because someone told him what was going to happen. Stuff like that, when nooooobody thought Finn was going to fight Brock and he throws it out there just before it happens. The idea that he doesn't have sources is laughable
only problem i have with meltzer is that his criteria for a 5 star match has greatly decreased over the years. the inflation of the rating system makes a 5 star match matter less than it once did.
Yeah his star ratings are a joke. I never really cared about them but 2019 fucking kiiiilled that whole system. Some of those Gargano matches
What I'm talking about is very simple. The fact that he's made so much money off of wrestling, while not actually being in the business is amazing. The fact he has no 1st hand experience in the wrestling business, yet has made a name for himself is amazing to me. He's so unessential to the business, yet so unavoidable it's damn near baffling.
I guess I just don't get the complaint. Every entertainment property has people like this. You don't have to be a politician to be a political pundit who makes money from listeners. Nate Silver never ran for president. Ariel Helwani has never had an MMA match. I'm not sure Roger Ebert ever made a movie (could be wrong)
So I don't really get your complaint. He makes money because people like him and don't care that he's never "been in the business"
