Documentary – I’m really not a fan of this type of Documentary where it’s spaced out every two matches, but I do like that it feels more of an interview. Honestly, there really wasn’t anything I really took out of this and compared to My Journey, Mysterio didn’t really go that deep. There definitely were some things that I learned about him but nothing controversial. I really wanted him to talk about how WCW made him wrestle without the mask but they totally avoided it. I do like how he brushes up on the mask and his entrance and how they came apart. He obviously talks about Eddie Guerrero which I do think belonged on there. I think he should have talked a lot more about WCW and some behind the scenes stuff but nothing really came out of that. The third disc I believe was the most insightful one, and I personally took the most out of that. I wasn’t really a fan of this and I really think they should have done a standard Documentary.

Overall Thoughts – I would probably say this wasn’t as good as “The Biggest Little Man” mainly because that DVD had most of his great matches featured on it. The majority WCW matches that were selected for this DVD weren’t that good whatsoever. They threw some matches on here from WCW Saturday Night and WCW Pro Wrestling which were extremely short. Again, I do understand why the WCW selection wasn’t that great because of the previous release. I had no major complaints about the two ECW matches since there really isn’t much to pick from being how long he was there. I was really surprised how there actually didn’t turn out to be one great match on this whole set. I don’t think the Documentary helped this majorly either, again if there was just a standard one on the first disc I do think this could have been much better. I do like that not all of the WWE matches were PPV and they had a variety of TV matches. The third disc’s matches were in the span of a year and a half which I really didn’t like and was the hardest disc to sit through. There were a lot of meaningless matches on the set as well, so I really don’t think this DVD was needed, it was just good. Hopefully this is the last Mysterio DVD, being his third and the lack of matches to pick from after this, coming from a Mysterio fan.

Recommended? – No

Overall Score: 7.25
