Uh oh, more of that silly practice of rating Rasslin' matches again. :roll:
Whether you like star ratings or not, people use it as a guide for what to rewatch. That's why people do them and why people rate them. It's cataloging and sorting more than anything.

Would you be as mad and eye-roll if people used "Good, very good and great" as a way to recommend matches to one another?
Why can't people just watch a match for the enjoyment of it?

You can. Star ratings are an easy, quantifiable way for me to compartmentalize my feelings on a match. I am a lists guy. If you just want to watch a match and the conclusion is simply I liked it or I didn't then fair enough. I feel like the non-star rating guys try to portray the ones that do ratings as these authoritative figures that force others to accept their rankings.

Because time is finite. If I only have a few hours a day to watch wrestling it's nice to know people whose opinions I respect enjoyed a match enough to rate it highly.

I'm immortal, so I don't worry about time.
