You seem upset over a man's opinion.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

I don't really do ratings. I usually just go by if I think a match was awful or awesome (The match was great, not really awesome, but great match). But a lot of people seem to care about them. But if this style of match is a ***** 1/2 then it baffles me how Dragon Gate isn't the company with the most 5* matches in the business

It's Dave's anti non-NJPW Japanese company bias, I'm telling you

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

yea strongly disagree with the main event rating. It was good don't get me wrong, second best match on the card, but ***** 1/2? Maybe I missed something but thew first two falls of that match were slow as all hell and uninteresting. It wasnt until the last fall when we started really getting into it.

Even by the cards standards I enjoyed WALTER/Dunne way more.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

It's interesting cause I dont think any other WWE show has ever had 4 matches rated ****1/2 or higher, he's basically saying this was the best WWE in ring show of all time.

Still need to see the tag match and Dream vs Riddle but the other 2 matches I had at ****1/2-****3/4.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

5 and a half stars?

it was a good match, yes, but it really didn't get going until it was 1-1.

I'd have given it 4.5 to 4.75 sure but it wasn't what I'd call a five star match.

Saying that Meltzer didn't give Undertaker v HBK at WM25 5 Stars and that is one of the best matches I've ever seen.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

I don't do match ratings, and I'm a fan of Johnny Gargano, but it's amazing how he's the greatest performer of all time 'cause Big Dave gave his matches stars.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

The going over 5* is beyond overkill. He did it that one time with Okada and Omega and because it got such attention its stuck around.

For me, it ends at 5. There are still matches better than others but you have to end the scale somewhere. Austin/Bret and Taker/HBK are both 5* in my book but the former is the superior match. You dont have to add 1/4* to say a match was better than another.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

What's funny I didn't even think the main event was the best match on that card or at WM weekend, I put Walter/Dunne over it, and I think Ibushi/Naito and Bryan/Kofi were better matches too.

One man's rating shouldn't be taken as gospel really. It's just his opinion. He even say's it himself. I'd personally have it at 4.5.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

Ehh I was side-eyeing that main event a bit by the end personally. I came out thinking Johnny could step on a landmine and kick out. The ending to Bryan vs Kofi was refreshing after that and I felt it was more emotionally investing. And at Takeover the Tag match was my favourite but the fact that it featured my favs Black and the War Raiders (and to a lesser degree Ricochet).

But we can agree it was a great Takeover, these pedantic star ranking comparisons I feel takes some of the fun out of enjoying the show though.
