Shawn Spears Explains Why Five-Star Matches Shouldn’t Exist



AEW’s Shawn Spears has by his own admission, not had a five-star match, as he believes such a perfect ranking shouldn’t exist in wrestling.

Spears signed with AEW in 2019, making him one of the longest-tenuring stars with the promotion, and previously worked for WWE as Tye Dillinger.

Speaking to WrestleZone, Spears shared his belief that having a match be rated perfect doesn’t work, as there is always something to improve upon. He said,

“I’ll never have a five-star match, in my opinion, or seven stars, or whatever the ranking is nowadays. In my opinion, never. Never will I ever. A lot of people watching this will say, ‘Oh yeah, of course, you won’t.’ No, I don’t, because I don’t believe it exists. Because there’s always something to improve on, somewhere.

“I learned that back in my ‘NXT’ days under Shawn Michaels in his class. He doesn’t watch a lot of his matches back. And I’m like, ‘Come on.’ He’s like, ‘No, no, no.’ If he feels good about it, he lets it go. So I kind of understand that mindset a little bit. If I feel good about it, I let it go. But I’ll never have a five-star classic, because I’ll always find something that I could’ve done better.”

Spears’ most recent match for AEW was as part of the April 26, AEW Rampage which saw him and Ricky Starks lose to Jay White and Juice Robinson.
