Re: Dave Meltzer Star Ratings for WrestleMania 32 Matches

Main event rated higher than the women's title match...

Dave, what planet are you on?

A great match would have gotten the crowd interested, but it was clear that no-one cared about it, it was dull and sluggish, the highlights were HHH's neckbreaker off the announcer's table and Reigns spearing Steph. Everything else just looked like your average Reigns match on RAW.

What was so great about the main event? Not even hating on the people involved. It was pretty ove- oh wait this is MELTZER rating matches? Gee, never mind. I know why it was rated highly.

Re: Dave Meltzer Star Ratings for WrestleMania 32 Matches

This is just one guys opinion, a lot of other journalists have blasted the main event.



Sunrise, wrong side of another day,
Sky high and six thousand miles away,
Don't know how long I've been awake,
Wound up in an amazing state,
Can't get enough,
And you know it's righteous stuff,
Goes up like prices at Christmas,
Motorhead, remember me now Motorhead!

Meltzer was fairly on the money until the main event here. I could barely stay awake through that boring, plodding mess. The best part was when the match was finally over and done. Either way, pretty piss poor ratings for a Wrestlemania, but this is what WWE is all about these days; all filler and no substance.

Re: Dave Meltzer Star Ratings for WrestleMania 32 Matches

Reigns' 4*+ match # 67546346? And this guy Meltzer is famous for overrating matches of wrestling styles completely contradictory to what was exhibited in the main event. Incredible.

Regardless, in my assessment the women's match was slightly better but HHH-Reigns was pretty solid as well- you can't expect many non gimmick matches with two 250+ lbs competitors being better than that. They complimented each other very well and exhibited their strengths and weakness very convincingly. But most importantly the match was coming off a strong build up which has it's roots planted way back in 2014 so people were interested in the match from the moment the entrances started.

Re: Dave Meltzer Star Ratings for WrestleMania 32 Matches

**** for that main event that run 20 minutes longer than it should have had?

Women's match was much superior.

Re: Dave Meltzer Star Ratings for WrestleMania 32 Matches

That's why I can't help but chuckle whenever people imply how guys like Styles/Neville are somehow much better wrestlers than Roman. Reigns gives a great match against a technical/brawl hybrid style heavyweight like HHH, the guy gave a great match against a super heavyweight like Big Show, gave a great match against a cruiserweight technical specialist like Bryan, gave a great match against a freak of nature brawler/ fighting specialist like Lesnar and the list goes on and on.

Gimmick matches, non gimmick matches.. wrestling cruiserweights, heavyweights, super heavyweights.. brawlers, technical wrestlers, freaks of nature, hybrid performers.. gimmick match, non gimmick match.. crowd of 5000, 15000, 75000, 97000.. the dude is just an incredible wrestler in every damn setting. Definitely Top 5 in the ring atm and if he keeps it up this year then certainly would be challenging to be in Top 3.
