One of the matches at Wrestle Kingdom 17 surpassed its already high expectations.

The penultimate match at Wrestle Kingdom 17 saw Will Ospreay defend his IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship against a returning Kenny Omega.

The two stole the show with their high-intensity war and incredibly high-risk offense. They fought for 34 minutes before Omega put Ospreay down with the One-Winged Angel to win the match and the title.

And according to Dave Meltzer, it was such a great match that, in this week’s edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, he gave it a 6.25-star rating.

This is the second match to ever achieve such a high rating from Dave Meltzer, with the first being Okada vs. Omega II at Dominion 2017.

The current highest-rated matches according to Dave Meltzer are as follows:
