The Epic Journey of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Blu-Ray Review

Disc One,

Documentary – Although this Doc was pretty damn good, I gotta say I was expecting a little more. I’m not discrediting it at all, it is definitely great, it’s just that I felt it was a very in depth Montage on his career. Also, I don’t think there was any inside information that wasn’t revealed before besides Rock revealing why he didn’t come back for all the years. I think that inside information really makes these kinds of DVDs interesting and there really wasn’t any of it here. I did like the very few that talked on the presentation and that we got a lot out of Vince McMahon. It also was timed perfectly and it just breezed by. I felt The Rock could have talked some more than he did but it was still nice to have a sit down interview with him. Foley, Jericho, Vince and Triple H put him over huge here and pretty much told his haters off. This is definitely a fantastic Documentary and highly recommended but it could have been a bit better.

Overall Thoughts – This is definitely the best Rock DVD that has been released by far. After the last disappointing release, I’m definitely glad we got this one. The Documentary is pretty much what everybody has been waiting for and now that there is one it plugged right in with some great matches and segments to form this great DVD. Although Disc One blew Disc Two out of the water with matches, the segments on the second disc redeemed itself a bit. You could definitely tell that Disc One was when The Rock was on fire if you never watched a day of his career. I liked that there were a few forgotten matches on the set which WWE tends to throw on most of these sets. People have their points on why WWE should have waited a bit longer to release this until after WrestleMania 28, but it still turned out great. The Blu-Ray exclusive extras were also great, I’m so glad that they put this stuff on here because it’s definitely worth the extra couple of bucks. Overall this was definitely a fun time to watch and a trip down memory lane so it’s good we got it. I’m glad WWE is getting their releases hot early and starting their 2012 DVD catalog off with a bang.

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

WWE Stone Cold Steve Austin: The Bottom Line on the Most Popular Superstar of All Time Blu-Ray Review

Disc One,

Documentary – I honestly don’t know where to start with this, but to say I was blown away is an understatement. This is now my favorite Documentary of all time of any kind, it was pure gold. The format of it was excellent, Austin was talking majority of the time which is how most Documentaries should be. The total running time was around 2 and a half hours and it honestly breezed by, I couldn’t believe how fast it went. WWE even managed to bring in Paul Heyman to be interviewed for this which was incredible. The content of the Documentary was amazing. Without giving too much away, it’s filled with stories you’ve probably heard before, but being discussed in full by the man himself, Steve Austin. They really didn’t spend time on his childhood which I think is a positive factor since everybody just wants the meat and potatoes of the damn thing anyways, and I truly think the whole presentation was that. They went through his WCW days and cleared up any misunderstandings or whatnot about Austin getting fired from the company. Austin told a funny story about being introduced and being billed from Hollywood, California for the first time. He moved onto ECW and talked about how he was on fire with his promos and such. When they finally got to WWE it was just jaw dropping from there, everything you need to know and more was talked about. Like I said before, I don’t want to give anything away but my favorite two things I took out of this was his regret of turning heel at WrestleMania X-Seven and his reason for walking out in 2002. I have heard stories and rumors but to hear all of this coming out of Austin’s mouth was what I needed. There were a lot of other things he cleared up for as well but I think those were the best two. They were definitely straight forward with this one, nothing kayfabe at all which is how a Documentary should be. There were also some really cool extras that didn’t make the cut but were still great. I can’t praise this enough, this is definitely the Documentary of 2011 without a doubt, and in my mind the best of all time.

Disc Three,

Segments – I don’t think any previous DVD has had a whole disc dedicated to segments and promos, but Stone Cold is damn worthy of being the first. I don’t even think anybody but Austin and a few others could even make a whole disc with only segments and have it work. They definitely had everything down intact, not a single important promo or segment was left off. It was very easy to sit down and just watch these great promos one after another. The Blu-Ray even had more segments including a hilarious one with Rock and Austin after Raw went off the air which was my personal favorite. There were also some more Blu-Ray exclusive special features, and I loved all four of them. The tour around his Ranch was really, really cool and the Twitter Q&A was pretty insightful, he even mentions he wouldn’t mind getting back in the ring. Definitely an amazing unique disc of great entertaining footage and I had a blast watching and reliving it.

Overall Disc Three: 9.0

Overall Thoughts – This was just an awesome Blu-Ray to watch from start to finish and now one of my personal favorites. I’m proud to have this one in the collection and so happy that WWE did a phenomenal job on this. Like I stated before, this is my favorite Documentary of all time, I think that alone is worth the 25 bucks. The matches were great even though this could have done without a few of them but that’s nothing to complain about. There was actually a forgotten gem that I had no idea happened on WCW Saturday Night on here, very underrated match. The Alternate Commentary was another cool feature they did which was awesome to hear JR and Austin’s thoughts on the matches as they were happening. I think that’s a very misused feature and WWE should start doing it a lot more with other DVD releases. If this is indeed the last Stone Cold DVD then this is a perfect way to leave off especially with the previous release being lackluster and I know Austin wasn’t satisfied with it. I highly recommend this to be picked up as soon as possible; this is DVD of the year no questions asked.

Overall Disc Two: 9.0

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.

WWE Randy Orton: The Evolution of a Predator Blu-Ray Review

*Blu-Ray Exclusive Extras are included in Overall Thoughts*

Disc One,

Documentary – This Documentary was outstanding and one of the best to come out of this year. It had a nice mix of Biography Material and Behind the Scenes Footage. I was really into this for the full hour and a half and felt it didn’t get dull at all. At first, this was supposed to titled ‘The Randy Orton Experience’ so I can see why the Road to WrestleMania 27 stuff that they did made sense which was just Behind the Scenes Footage that started at the Elimination Chamber and went up to ‘Mania 27. I was definitely hoping they would’ve made the actual Biography a bit longer, but nonetheless it was still great. They mentioned how Randy is a private guy so seeing some of the personal stuff on this really makes me appreciative that he to include it. I liked that the right people were interviewed for this and how they told things straight up instead of a Josh Matthews just praising him. I also liked how it came off as if Randy wanted to make this DVD special so he went as far as to bring the WWE cameras inside of his home to show what it’s like on his off days. I was shocked that he opened up about his past drug use which turned out to be really interesting. I also enjoyed that he went in depth on when he served for the military and the trouble he went through with that. As for the behind the scenes stuff, it showed Randy doing radio interviews, making a wish, meeting fans and even bringing his family backstage when Raw was in St. Louis. This was bound to come out sooner or later, but now that it finally did I think it really delivered. I have to say this is the best Documentary so far this year but with tough competition coming up.

Overall Thoughts – I definitely did enjoy this Blu-Ray as a whole but I had a few complaints with the matches. I felt the matches were a little tough to through, I didn’t have any complaints for the quality of the matches but it’s just Randy Orton’s style himself. I also didn’t like that there were only 3 Non-PPV matches on the set which would be a negative to any WWE DVD collector who might have majority of them. The last complaint I had with this was that the Royal Rumble 2009 match wasn’t in full. They started from were Orton entered the Rumble which was 8 so I didn’t really see why they couldn’t put the full Rumble in HD for the first time on a Blu-Ray. Other than that, the Blu-Ray was really well done. Again, I can’t praise the Documentary enough; I would even say it was worth the money alone. There were 5 Blu-Ray Special Features and all of them were very good and definitely fit. Like I said before, the Documentary is the best of the year so far, but I wouldn’t say it’s the best release of the year, but nonetheless it was still great.

WWE Greatest Superstars of the 21st Century Blu-Ray Review

*Blu-Ray Exclusive Extras are included in Overall Thoughts*

Disc One,

Documentary – I was waiting for this one to come out since late 2009 and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. I really enjoyed watching this one and it was not only easy to sit through but fun to watch. I would say this was the best “Greatest Superstars” series of the three. There were definitely a lot more positives than negative on this. The thing I liked most is that there was no order of who was better than whom, everybody was put over equally. I was a bit shocked that they put over Kurt Angle and Jeff Hardy the way they did when they usually don’t do that for guys in the other promotion and glad they looked passed that. I did like the layout of how they presented the Superstars by highlighting their careers and having other talent put them over like they usually do. Also the small introduction in the beginning with some stats of their careers I found cool. They definitely missed the boat on putting Rob Van Dam on this list and arguably Mick Foley, Ric Flair and CM Punk, but I do understand if they were on a limit of who to include. They did miss some stuff in a few of the bios more notably skipping over Undertaker’s American Badass gimmick. This definitely should have been talked about being it was some of the greatest years of his career. I also don’t feel they talked enough about Booker T’s pre-King Booker work and Shawn Michaels’ nWo run in 02. Also, I didn’t think Santino should have been interviewed for this whatsoever and that The Miz came off as a babyface. Other than those minor issues I don’t really have any other complaints. This didn’t come off biased at all and everybody included in the list were given credit. This is one of my favorite documentaries of the year, up there with “The True Story of WrestleMania” and I can see myself watching this again down the road.

Overall Disc Two: 8.5

Overall Thoughts – Like I said before, this is my favorite documentary out of the three “Greatest Superstars” series, but the matches might have been slightly better in the 90’s release. Don’t get me wrong, as you can see the matches on this on this are definitely not bad at all. For some reason, everybody on the documentary were in at least one match except for Stone Cold and if it’s not the Blu-Ray, Jeff Hardy. I think Austin should have had a match on here no questions asked. They also put on a lot of multi-man matches on the second disc to fit everybody on, which makes sense due to the time they have but the matches that were chosen I had no problem with. They did feature a perfect amount of television matches on the set, including the Ironman match between Angle and Lesnar in its entirety which I was very happy about. The Blu-Ray exclusive extras were really well picked; they featured both funny and important segments. I think disc two featured the better extras but disc one had some good stuff. My personal favorite out of all of them is the Jericho heel turn which I feel deserved to be on here. The Kurt Angle “You Suck” segment was also very funny and I was glad they put that on there. This set also featured a couple of forgotten matches like Triple H/Edge from Japan and Eddie Guerrero/Rey Mysterio for the WWE Championship. I totally forgot about both of those matches but now I’m glad to have them. Like I said before, the Ironman match definitely is a reason to pick this one up on top of the stacked documentary. I also really liked the artwork for it where its guys like Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle, Booker T and even JBL’s first cover in quite a while. You might want to pick up the Blu-Ray version of this obviously for the bonus content and matches that makes it better. If you decide to pick this up on standard DVD, the Overall Score doesn’t really change that much if any at all. I would probably say this is the best WWE release of the year and my personal favorite.

Overall Disc Three: 7.25

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
