Welcome to the first episode of a brand new podcast on the PTBN Wrestling Network, Starflation. The origin? Prior to January 2017, we had been using the long standing and well known 5-star rating system for rating wrestling matches. That all changed when Dave Meltzer gave the main event of Wrestle Kingdom 11 SIX stars, before going SEVEN stars on Omega/Okada IV in June 2018, giving us the 7-star scale we now use. But that poses a question, what about the hundreds of matches rated the full 5 and above before June 2018? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
In this episode Calum, Ben and Logan take a look at the #1 ranked match in the PTBN Greatest WWE Match Ever ballot, Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin from WrestleMania 13! Will it be adjusted for starflation or does it stay at the original 5? Listen in, watch along on the Network or Peacock, and find out.
