Meltzer’s Ratings: Payback

As a public service for the people who do not get the newsletter, I have scoped out Dave Meltzer’s star ratings for all the big shows.  Here’s what he thought of Payback:

Dolph Ziggler d. Baron Corbin – **1/4

Kalisto d. Ryback – **3/4

Vaudevillains d. Enzo/Cass – no rating

Kevin Owens d. Sami Zayn – ****

The Miz d. Cesaro – ***1/4

Dean Ambrose d. Chris Jericho – ***3/4

Charlotte d. Natalya – ***1/4

Roman Reigns d. AJ Styles – ***3/4

 

As always, Meltzer love of the Flair dynasty overrates Charlotte’s match, and I think Ryback/Kalisto deserves slightly more love, but otherwise these seem to be internally reasonable.  Thoughs?
