He's clearly unfairly biased against the WWF based on that. Savage/Steamboat, Rumble 1992, Bret/Owen WM, Hogan/Warrior, Warrior/Savage, HBK/Taker (probably both WM matches) to name but a few were about as good as it got.

 

I would possibly even argue that matches like Cactus/HHH were deserving of top marks.

I still have no idea how Joe/Kobashi can be considered a five star match.

 

Well I suppose if you like chops. :laugh:

350+ chops I'll add! or something around that figure anyhow!

 

I loved that match, I'd class it 5*****. Feels like there is a hell of alot WWF/E stuff missing from that list mind as it has been already mentioned above. Wheres the love!?

If that match isnt a five star match, then no WWE match will ever get five stars ever again. The main event of WrestleMania XX should have been a five star match as well. CM Punk vs Samoa Joe is a five star match though. Which is says a lot for these five star ratings.

 

Punk's about my favourite thing in wrestling but he's never had a 5 star match and I'm not sure he ever will.

It's completely subjective, which is why it's so stupid. I could pick a handful of WWE matches from the past few years I would consider 5 star matches, the obvious one being Taker/HBK 1. He clearly loves his spotfests, as do I most of the time, but for the people who hate them or the ROH style then it's a completely pointless rating system.

 

Another thing that's always pissed me off about the 5 star system is when fractions are added. Why not just mark each match out of 20 stars instead?

They all shook each others hands afterwards and they were all shitting smiles as they trotted off back to the locker room. You'd have thought they'd just had a go on the bouncy castle with their daughters, instead of having wrestled for 15 minutes landing on their heads and taking foot stomps to the face.
