Overall Thoughts – I finished this DVD in one sitting and it was not bad at all. This was a very smart idea by the WWE to release a DVD based on this. The match selection was very good being that there was a fair amount of ECW, WCW, and WWE matches. Not a Disc is under 8.0 IMO, and the match of the DVD was the infamous Triangle Ladder Match. The Artwork is a bit kiddish, and doesn’t seem like they tried on it. I like how each Superstar/Division was given their own match. Also the skycam that included John Morrison, Kofi Kingston, Evan Bourne, and Jamie Noble was very cool. But Overall the DVD is not hard to sit through, they have a nice selection that mixes things up, and is worth the money. I do recommend this DVD if you like High Flying action, want some WCW or ECW footage, or just looking for a new WWE DVD because this will most likely satisfy you.

Overall Score – 8.25
