Overall Thoughts – This release has now become a yearly thing for the WWE DVD catalog but I myself have no use for this. The only reason I would want to pick this one up is for the HD Footage since there wasn’t any Blu-Rays released since Over the Limit, but it really doesn’t bother me. This is obviously an easy way for WWE to make some money closing the year for the people who don’t buy the PPV DVDs. For the content itself, it just goes to show how great WWE was for the first half of 2011 and then how they fell off a cliff. Disc One consists of two perfect matches in my opinion which is almost unheard of from WWE, along with three great matches and three more very good matches. I think that disc alone would be worth the buy for the non PPV collectors but there is still more. Now although Disc Two only consists of one great match, you still have some good matches on here. It’s beyond me why they felt to need to put Kelly Kelly and Beth Phoenix on the set. They definitely should have waited until after Survivor Series to start working on this set to squeeze on The Rock’s return match. If you’re a fan that doesn’t buy PPVs or even just wants the HD footage, then by all means pick this up, but I honestly have no use for it.

Recommended? – Yes, If you don’t collect PPVs

Overall Score: 8.25
