King of the Mountain Matches

This past Sunday featured the seventh and eighth King of the Mountain Matches in TNA's history. I noticed that Dave Meltzer did not think as highly of the KOTM matches on Slammiversary as I did. Based on that, I decided to go on the internet and view some of the KOTM matches from year's past.

6/19/05 Raven vs. Monty Brown vs. AJ Styles vs. Abyss vs. Sean Waltman (Slammiversary; KOTM II)
Meltzer: ***
S2X: ***1/2

6/17/07 Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles vs. Christian Cage vs. Chris Harris (Slammiversary; KOTM IV)
Meltzer: ****1/4 (his highest rating for any KOTM match)
S2X: ****1/4

6/5/08 Kaz vs. Chris Sabin vs. Jimmy Rave vs. Johnny Devine vs. Curry Man (TNA Impact; KOTM V)
Meltzer: ***3/4
S2X: ***3/4

6/8/08 Samoa Joe vs. Booker T vs. Robert Roode vs. Rhino vs. Christian Cage (Slammiversary; KOTM VI)
Meltzer: ***1/2
S2X: ***1/2

Hmm. Looks like I at least agree with him on most of those.
