WWE: Greatest Superstars of the 21st Century DVD review

Relive the rise to super stardom in the WWE of John Cena, Rey Mysterio, Batista, Edge, Randy Orton, and the return of Shawn Michaels in WWE: Greatest Superstars of the 21st Century.

Like past WWE DVDs covering the greatest superstars of the 80′s and 90′s, WWE: Greatest Superstars of the 21st Century covers the WWE stars that made the biggest impact from 2000-2009. More than 20 stars of the past decade are featured in short highlight packages on the first disc while the two other discs are filled with matches. The majority of the commentary comes from the current WWE roster and officials.

Surprisingly WWE showcases talent that no longer works for the company. Brock Lesnar, Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle all get their own video bios. Angle’s video does poke fun at Angle being a goof more than his abilities at being a great wrestler though. When it comes to Hardy and Lesnar they are both given their dues for their unique and memorable moments in WWE history. Eddie Guerrero is also given a respectable tribute for his five-year contribution to WWE.

Lesnar VS. Angle in a 60-minute Ironman match for the WWE Championship is the most exciting match on this DVD set as it was quite possibly one of the best WWE television matches of all-time. Great back-and-forth action with brilliant storytelling. Although Lesnar’s career in WWE was short, the Ironman match with Angle may have been his best match. Kane unmasking after his match with HHH is a noteworthy event as it spawned into Kane’s current demonic character.

For most WWE fans this is a trip down a very recent memory lane. New WWE fans will likely benefit from this history lesson if they only tuned in a few years ago. A little disappointed that they did not expand on some of the controversial moments a lot of superstars caused. While The Miz hints at how JBL is a bully and did not like him there was no in-depth reasons to why JBL treated new talent poorly. The WWE portrays a positive light on almost every aspect of their entertainers.

WWE: WrestleMania XXVII 2-disc DVD review

The Rock made his triumphant return to WWE home video guest hosting WrestleMania XXVII and laying the smackdown on John Cena and The Miz causing havoc in the main event.

Starting off the biggest WWE show of the year, The Rock promised to ‘bring it’ and he did so by hitting on Eve Torres, a face-off with long-time rival Stone Cold Steve Austin, and using his authority along with his move set against Cena and Miz. Fair to say that The Rock’s larger than life presence made this year’s Mania special.

The Undertaker putting his 18-0 WrestleMania streak on the line against HHH in a No Holds Barred Match was clearly the match of the night. HHH and Taker put on an exciting display of showmanship, athleticism, and dramatic pauses. HHH brought his brutal side that night, violently hitting Taker with numerous chair shots even a shot that nailed Taker on the head. HHH made sure that no matter the result Taker will no longer be the same ever again.

Jersey Shore’s Snooki made her WWE in-ring debut in a six-person tag team match as she teamed with Trish Stratus and John Morrison against LayCool and Dolph Ziggler. Surprisingly, Snooki displayed some impressive maneuvers that included a cartwheel handspring back elbow. This bout included a bit of controversy backstage as Morrison gave Stratus ‘the cold shoulder’ as their team celebrated. WWE announcer Michael Cole made his singles in-ring debut against Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler with Stone Cold Steve Austin as the guest referee. Almost every time Austin tries to talk audio is completely cut due to the amount he swears and WWE doing their best to keep their PG rating intact. Austin followed his own rules and raised hell like he usually does. This caused three announcers to go down allowing Jim Ross and Lawler to commentate on Taker-HHH, the six-person tag and Cena-Miz.

This is one of the rare WWE DVDs that has no extra content whatsoever. If you’re looking to watch the Hall-of-Fame ceremony, the United States Championship match between Sheamus and Daniel Bryan and quite a few more extras, you have to get the 3-disc Collector’s Edition. This edition only shows you the original broadcast that has been edited. Undertaker does not come out to Johnny Cash’s “Ain’t No Grave” just his WWE theme, HHH does not have Metallica’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls” for his special Mania entrance, Cole against Lawler was edited down due to the finger salute from Austin to Cole.

The 2-disc set is only recommended for those that only want relive the WrestleMania XXVII event. With Edge’s last ever WWE match defending the World Heavyweight Championship against Alberto Del Rio, the return of WWE Attitude stars The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin, JR returning to the announcers booth and quite possibly one of the last matches ever for The Undertaker, WrestleMania XXVII has so many historic moments all jam-packed into one night.
