Fair or not, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has only awarded five WWE matches a five-star rating.
How valid Meltzer's ratings are is often debated as is his perceived anti-WWE bias. Regardless, receiving a five-star rating is an honor.
These five matches are all phenomenal and the difference between the top-ranked and fifth-ranked bout is minute.
Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart were both a part of two of these matches respectively. With those legends retired, who can we look to add to this list?
What will be the next WWE five-star match and will we have to suffer through another 14-year gap again?
