AEW Dynamite Match Gets 5 Star Rating

While not everyone is a fan, including Pete Rosenberg, Dave Meltzer’s star ratings in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter have been a way of rating the quality of PPV matches for decades.

Meltzer rarely rates weekly TV matches, but has admitted that a match from this week’s AEW Dynamite show received a coveted five star rating.

This week’s show opened with a brilliant tag match between The Young Bucks and the Death Triangle duo of PAC and Fenix. Meltzer had this to say about the match.

“This was one of the best matches in the history of the company and maybe the best match ever on Dynamite and certainly top two or three. I had it at *****.”

This makes it the the 9th five or above star match of 2021, eight of which have been in New Japan, and one in AEW. AEW’s previous five star match was the Kenny Omega vs. Rey Fenix at New Year’s Smash Night One.
