Apter has always been more about kayfabe whereas Meltzer has always been more about exposing the inner workings of pro wrestling and what goes on behind the scenes.
As a whole, I don't really pay too much attention to wrestling journalists, never really did even as a kid. If I did, I'd probably be more of an Apter fan as Dave Meltzer is very much concerned with pushing his own agenda as to what he thinks is good wrestling and passes it off as gospel.
