Dave Meltzer has awarded a match from AEW Dynamite 4.25, in a week of fantastic wrestling in AEW.
Kenny Omega vs Will Ospreay‘s match from Forbidden Door was given a 6-star rating, which is now the joint highest in AEW history.
AEW followed this up with a fantastic card on AEW Dynamite, which featured a tag team match pitting Sting vs Chris Jericho for only the second time in 35 years.
In this article, we’ll talk you through Dave Meltzer’s star ratings from AEW Dynamite, revealing which match was awarded an impressive 4.25 Stars from the Wrestling Observer.
Jon Moxley vs Tomohiro Ishii (AEW Dynamite 28/6/23)
It was a highly anticipated rematch from their G1 Climax classic in 2019, and the fans were not disappointed.
The hard-hitting affair was a straight-up brawl. Huge hits and monstrous clotheslines were on offer, with neither fan giving up lightly.
Jon Moxley won the match with the help of the BCC, although a run-in from Eddie Kingston moved their story forward.
Dave Meltzer awarded this match 4.25 Stars, making it one of the highest-rated AEW Dynamite matches this year.
- Dave Meltzer’s Star Ratings – 4.25 Stars
- Cagematch Rating – 8.37
- Atletifo Rating – 3 Stars
Despite the star-studded show, this was the only AEW Dynamite match rated by Dave Meltzer this week.
This ignored the Texas Tornado match between Sting, Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho, as well as the six-man tag team match between The Hung Bucks and The Dark Order.
However, it is said that if a TV match is below 4 stars, then it will not be given a star rating in the Observer, so we can assume these AEW Dynamite matches were around three stars each.
