I've been talking about this for years. Post-2012 Dave would have been giving ***** to ROH matches and those HBK/Taker/Angle Mania matches left and right.

I always knew it was a "thing", but didn't realize he'd completely gone off the rails the last few years... the graph is pretty eye opening.

It's more telling about Uncle Dave's obvious bias towards anything Japan, and Flair for the late 80s-early 90s era, and cruiserweight/indy-inspired matches. It's even more obvious when you add the dreaded 4,75* matches in the mix.

The graphic there does seem a bit inaccurate though since 1993 alone had thirteen 5* matches according to CageMatch.
