HBK / Taker first HIAC for me.

This match had literally everything. It was utterly brutal and heart wrenching. Two masters at their craft. A violent bloodbath with many twists and turns. Plus it lead to an unforgettable ending with the debut of Kane which NOBODY saw coming (if you did, you’re a fucking liar).

Bret Hart vs Steve Austin at WM13 is the best on the list, with Shawn Michaels vs Undertaker at Badd Blood `97 being a very close second.

The North American Title Ladder Match is probably the best 5 star NXT match on the list.

CM Punk vs Cena is more for the crowd reaction to Punk and the scene of him leaving with the WWE title through the crowd.

Re: The best five-star match at WWE ?

Also, I'm shocked that neither of the HBK vs. Undertaker WM matches got the 5 star nod. To me, the WM25 match is the greatest match ever.
Wait, the HBK vs Taker WM match wasn't 5 stars?

I was already looking for that one as soon as I saw the topic but wasn't there.
Abysmal that it isn't 5 stars. Best match of all time.

The amount of NXT matches in that list says it all.

If by five star, you mean no-selling, poor psychology, finisher spams, innumerable false finishes, etc, then it makes sense why NXT would dominate that list, but don't tell me that he can only think of four matches pre-2011 in the history of the company. That's just blatantly bs.

Re: The best five-star match at WWE ?

Seeing Adam Cole vs Johnny Gargano on the same list as an all time classic like Bret Hart vs Steve Austin is just absolutely disgusting, completely revolting.
Or is it an amazing concept to compare the 5*s of decades ago to the 5*s of today?

To see how wrestling has changed?

Nothing in that comes close to Bret Steve Austin for me. Their entire feud was great storytelling and this match was nothing different.

How is this even a valid contest? Austin vs Hart among the choices provided.

To me the all time greatest match will always be Rock vs Hogan at WM 18.

WOw these are the only ones in HISTORY rated 5 star by Meltzer in WWE? I didn't realize the club was that exclusive.

Everyone complaining about some matches getting 5, some not, why do few in the first century?

Because it's Meltzer. He's a washed up hack. Don't put any value into anything he says. Taker v HBK WM 25 was definitely 5 stars. You don't need Meltzer to tell you that.
