I think he overrated the hell out of that womens match, other than that I pretty much agree or at least understood why they got those ratings

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

You could legitimately make an argument for Gargano being the greatest WWE in ring performer of all time.

He may have surpassed HBK in 5* matches now and has the highest rated match in WWE history.

Which is amazing considering he's certainly below Okada, Tanahashi, Omega, Ibusihi, Ishii and Naito. Goes to show how stacked NJPW is/was.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

everything is within 3/4 of a star rating of my rankings, and my rule of thumb is I won't argue with someone if they are within 3/4 of a star of mine.
Mine:
The War Raiders vs Aleister Black & Ricochet - 4 1/2
Velveteen Dream vs Matt Riddle - 4 1/4
WALTER vs Pete Dunne - 4 3/4
Shayna Baszler vs Io Shirai vs Kairi Sane vs Bianca Belair - 3
Adam Cole vs Johnny Gargano - 4 3/4

If you're going by Meltzer's ratings, they're tied at 2. But if this match is 5.5 stars, there's no way you can tell me HBK/Taker WM 25 is 4.75, which is what Meltzer gave it.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

Pete Dunne vs WALTER and that Johnny Gargano vs Adam Cole 2/3 Falls match earning that respect

It's also nice to see Velveteen Dream vs Matt Riddle get received highly

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

Wow, good for Gargano and Cole. They truly worked their asses off in that match and those final 10-15 minutes were some of the best wrestling and storytelling I've ever seen.

GOAT Takeover, change my mind.

Re: Meltzer's NXT Takeover New York ratings.

Gargano vs. Cole wasn't even better than the match with Almas or the first match with Ciampa last year, much less Austin vs. Hart. It was a good match and a match of the year candidate but it would be 4.5 from me at most.

The women's match is 2.75 at best. It would've been much worse without Kairi and Io.

The rest is fairly accurate.

Women's one is way too high as per usual.

Yeah that was definitely 5.

By the time it's all said and done I think Gargano will be the greatest WWE in ring performer of all time. He just needs a couple of 4.5*+/great matches on the main roster to cement it.

It amazes me that's possible when there are half a dozen better performers outside the WWE. Goes to show how great it is in ring in this era.

We're seeing 3 GOAT wrestlers, the WWE GOAT and one of the most naturally talented performers of all time (Ibushi).
