Honestly

Do you really care about star ratings?
If the match is entertaining, and keeps me watching. It’s good.
That’s literally the only judgment any fan should have IMO.

    I post on the F4W forums and this place talks about his star ratings infinitely more than his own fans. Star ratings might get one or two related posts in the threads for the Observers, but they get posted here and generate 100+ posts of seethe every single time.

    These are the same people that claim they don’t care.

      Dude, if you’re on the Board, it’s considered gospel in the fat man hive. You’re brainwashed if you think it’s discussed more here. Source : me, subscriber since 2010

        Where are the star ratings discussed every week when they’re published? They get more than 100 responses on the board? Please point them out to me.

          It’s a constant conversation rather than one thread, validating their emotional love of AEW because Dave said a match was 4*. They are discussed and used as ammunition daily dozens of times, 365.

          And if you donated to the go fund me for that obese Boarder who was supposed to die two years ago and is still kicking (and is perhaps the most obnoxious piece of blubber ever), please join him in the hospital.

    Nobody sane actually cares about Dave's star ratings, they're just a nice "was this match decent" indicator. If it's over 4 stars you'll probably like it if you're a wrestling fan, that's all that's important.

    If the match tells a story, makes sense and sets the guys up for whatever they do next then it's good. Otherwise it's bad. So the opposite of what Dave thinks.

    I look at them, laugh at them, and forget them immediately.

    I just want logical and entertainment. How that's distributed is debatable. Andre VS Hogan WM3 was a technical nightmare, but 10/10 entertainment.

        Ospreay works his opponent style
        his shit is not the same
        you have clearly only seen his aew shit where he was at his worst since he was fighting flippy homosexuals
        He's had match with Okada and Zack where he hasn't done one flip

      This. If he gives something 4.5 or higher, I'll often go out of my way to watch it. I don’t always agree with the rating, but I've yet to regret seeking out a match because of it.

    Sometimes I look at them just out of curiosity but I disagree with Dave a lot so I don't really care. There's some five star matches I enjoyed but I've hate most Bucks matches and I think Ospreay is very overrated, but not bad

    Do you think I care about his star ratings when the best match of all time is Billy Gunn vs Booker T from Velocity?

    I care because they have obviously has an effect on modern wrestling. He is a tastemaker and he obviously is on the spectrum, that has morphed something I like into an embarrassing pantomine dance routine.

    10 years ago if Dave gave a match 5 stars or even 4.75 I would usually check it out, but he does it so often now that it really doesn't mean anything anymore.

    Meltzer has been doing this for over 40 years. Scott Keith has been doing this for probably almost 30. I'd like to think that they would know by now what makes a good or at least entertaining match.

    You would have to be a fool to take their word as gospel.
