Dave loves commenting about wrestling and mixed martial arts but doesn’t like to disclose information about his family so much so the genders and name of his children are still a mystery.
On October 2016, Dave who rarely misses a Wrestling Observer radio show missed a show. He is the hardest working wrestler reporter there is and has been in the gold standard since the 1980s.
Later information was provided that his mother had suffered a stroke, but at the moment his mother is fit and doing well.
It was Dave Meltzer who popularized the “star rating” system. He works like a sort of a critic and rates wrestling matches on a scale of ‘zero to five’ sometimes the star goes into negative and sometimes it crosses too.
Kazuchika Okada vs Kenny Omega is the highest rated match by Dave Meltzer, the match got a 7-star rating.
Dave has also reviewed a match between Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa, an unsanctioned match.
The 58 years old American Journalist is so famous for his journalism and radio shows, his talking is often been snipped as short audio podcasts and been uploaded where the fans can specifically listen to the best parts.
