2001 is recognized as the end of the last great era in WWE and that’s hard to dispute after watching former WWE Diva Ivory in the Kayfabe Commentaries shoot DVD series, Timeline: The History of the WWE.
Ivory, aka Lisa Moretti, for the first time in five years relives her WWE experience with a look back at the last year of WWE Attitude. From her Women’s Championship reign that ended at the hands of the difficult Chyna to the start and end of the InVasion storyline, Ivory gives viewers an unique perspective on the past backstage dealings of WWE.
The frustration working with ‘Divas’ instead of women that could actually work in the ring were only a part of the reason to why Ivory eventually performed a shocking shoot at a house show.
Surprisingly, the most intriguing stories Ivory tells are the ones that happened later on or earlier in her WWE run. Telling off Jonathan Coachman in wrestler’s court and having The Rock Dwayne Johnson asking her if she had a boyfriend are just a few of the entertaining moments. While Ivory is careful and professional with her insight she does not hold back on her feelings on HHH’s power in WWE, why Kurt Angle starting having ‘demons’, her dislike of Lita and much more. No mention is made on her rumoured past relationship with Gregory Helms.
A lot of shoot DVDs that run over two hours feel long, but this one doesn’t. Ivory criticizing WWE’s change of direction since 2001 is a unique and refreshing shoot DVD that does not give you the familiar insider stories. Ivory’s energy and distinct personality are also shown throughout the DVD. While her opinions or superstar status may not be accepted by a certain percentage of fans there is no doubt her thoughts on her bizarre relationship with Chyna and battles with the barbie dolls in WWE are worth hearing about.
