    Now that Meltzer has broken his own scale that existed for 25 years by giving out 6 Star matches to Omega and Okada, I think he should retroactively add stars to deserving matches of the past to even things out.

    I think the easiest one is Hart Austin at Wrestlemania 13. It didn’t have a million crazy spots, but it is still the best match in my opinion. Best story, best use of blood, tight work, felt so real. I’d give that match at least 5 1/2 stars.

    What other five Star matches from the past now deserve more credit?

    In general, how do you guys feel about matches receiving more than five stars?

    I disagree on retroactively adding stars. The whole point of breaking the scale is that it's a match that goes above and beyond what we've seen before. The original scale was 4 stars, so 5 star matches in themselves are scale breakers. I think that adding stars just devalues everything by "curving" match scores so they all even out, which defeats the purpose to begin with.

    Watched it 100 times and it never gets old. Perfect's cocky entrance, Brain/Piper/Gorilla on commentary. Fucking clinic by two great workers.

    HBK vs Angle was one of the greatest matches of all time.

    I’ll also throw in Triple H vs Benoit vs HBK at WM 20.

    I think this is the match where Perfect’s back was absolutely shot, too, right? Makes it even more amazing.

    I'm not 100% sure on the back injury timeline, but by the time RR 1992 came along he was already in the "executive consultant" role to Flair, not wrestling anymore.
