WWE Star Ratings Hub

Below is a list of every WWE match we’ve rated **** or higher throughout the course of our books or on this website. Because wrestling is subjective, the team at History of Wrestling have different opinions on some matches, so they are ranked by whatever the highest rating it received from any member of the team was.
Please remember, these are just our opinions and a way of sharing with you how much we enjoyed (or didn’t enjoy) what we saw. They are not to be taken too seriously, but will hopefully act as a resource when you consider what matches you should be seeking out in your own wrestling viewing.

[PLEASE NOTE, THIS LIST CURRENTLY ONLY COVERS UP UNTIL 2004, AND 2015, 2016 AND 2017. IT IS A CONSTANT WORK IN PROGRESS]
