NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion EC3 has agreed with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins that match ratings are greatly overrated.
In July of this year, Rollins spoke about the star-rating system of Dave Meltzer and believes that the idea of rating matches is “silly” given that what fans appreciate is subjective.
During a recent episode of the “Wrestle Binge” podcast, EC3 agreed with Rollins’ attitude that match ratings are often given too much credit. He said,
“I agree 100%. Seth is spot on. And as a man who’s an uberly talented very successful professional wrestler, who’s done… all forms of wrestling from the highest quality, pure and real, pure wrestling possible to like outlandish and goofy nonsense, he has…he’s… one strong voice in the advocacy of star ratings are stupid. So, happy to have him on the team, man.
“I love Seth. The dude, like, I think we talked about after Mania, but…he had a 5-star match with a fricking Instagram influencer. Like, so, you know, he has some carte blanche too. Well, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but his is actually correct.”
EC3 is in his first reign as NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion after defeating Tyrus at last month’s NWA 75 pay-per-view event.
