Overall Thoughts – This is the sequel to the first “Ladder Match” DVD and I gotta say even though it didn’t top it, it was still great. A nice addition to this set was that Christian was the host of the DVD which was probably one of the very few I would have picked to host it, and he did a very good job. Now obviously they didn’t get all of the memorable Ladder Matches because it was on the first release, but they found a way to get some great ones on the first disc. The second disc is entirely after 2007, which was the year the first Ladder Match came out so it wasn’t hard to select matches for that. I do think they should have had at least 1 one ECW match on the set but they didn’t. I was very surprised to see HBK/Razor on this set since I entirely forgot they didn’t put that on the first release for some odd reason. This was if not the best, one of the best Ladder Matches of all time and one of many reasons to buy this DVD. Another reason to go buy this is for as Christian called it “a forgotten gem” which was Hardyz/E&C. I was also very satisfied with the amount of TV Matches that were on here. There were a lot of great matches on this set and I’m pretty sure almost every WWE Ladder Match has now been released on DVD. I do think this is the DVD of the Year as of right now but as I said before, there is some strong competition coming up.

Recommended? – Yes

Overall Score: 8.75
