Welcome to the debut edition of TPWW’s Emperor Smeat’s Match and Show Ratings for the week of October 27th to November 2nd.
- The criteria being used is a star system ranging from 0 to 5 stars with half star increments. 0 stars being the lowest and meaning the match was terrible to watch. 5 stars being the highest and meaning the match was very great to watch.
- A 3 star match is considered as average and the starting score for every match, which then moves in either direction based on quality and entertainment. A match that ends in a 3 star rating means it remained around average but was still enjoyable overall.
- A No Rating means only some and not the whole show was watched, which is required for an overall star rating.
- The overall rating includes everything else that happened and my general mood during the show.
- Some shows will only have an overall rating and best/worst for matches listed due to their shorter length and watching them in a casual viewing.
- Best and Worst category is simply what I felt was the best match or moment of a show and what was the worst or weakest as well.
