WWE: Best of Smackdown! 2009-2010 DVD review – Ringside Report + Wrestling Uncensored

The Rock’s video appearance return to World Wrestling Entertainment starts off a sensational 2009-2010 year for WWE’s blue brand in an extensive compilation three-disc set entitled WWE Smackdown!: The Best of 2009-2010.

Smackdown! is considered to many as the second show for WWE behind WWE’s flagship show Monday Night RAW. This DVD set shows why wrestling fans should be watching WWE on Friday nights, as many times it is far more entertaining and exciting than RAW. Only on Smackdown! do you get to see Rey Mysterio, The Undertaker, Kane, the Big Show, Drew McIntyre, Alberto Del Rio, and plenty more WWE superstars.

Mysterio and The Undertaker are easily the most featured stars on the DVD and at some points in the past year Smackdown! revolved around them. Taker defending his world championship or Mysterio finally getting the better of WWE alum Batista, showed why these two individuals are the measuring stick for the show.

The rise and fall of the Straight Edge Society is well-documented throughout the three-discs. There are small video packages describing what happened in each month on the show. Glad to see that WWE showcased all of the major storylines and feuds on Smackdown!. Although Mickie James left WWE early in 2010, she still had a major angle on the show feuding with LayCool in the infamous ‘Piggy James’ storyline.

As you explore the latter parts of this DVD set, you’ll notice how much McIntyre is heavily featured. Newcomers Kaval and Del Rio are also shown in matches for the first time on WWE DVD. The evolution of Jack Swagger and Dashing Cody Rhodes showed how Smackdown! is slowly generating new stars.

If you’re wondering why Kane attacked The Undertaker and how Dolph Ziggler became Intercontinental Champion, this three-disc set will definitely get you caught up with the way Smackdown! currently stands. No doubt you get a wide variety of matches and zany moments—Jack Swagger and Rey Mysterio getting thrown into the Gulf of Mexico does not happen every episode.

There's are surprises and a zinger or two from all directions in each show. Not to be missed live, but you'll want to hear it again on the podcast to be sure you actually heard those words.

Wrestling Uncensored

Here you're treated to unique and passionate perspectives, with lifelong wrestling fan Dave Simon and pro wrestler Johnny North, into the goings on in and outside the ring with rumours and predictions primarily touching the dominant promotion, WWE, but also New Japan Pro Wrestling, TNA, Ring of Honor and the many independent and local circuits. Compiling over 400 episodes, their opinions and continued zeal comes from years of ups, downs, ins, and outs they have witnessed and spoken of.

Dave & Johnny LIVE!

Before they record Wrestling Uncensored, Dave & Johnny go live on YouTube every Friday afternoon where fans and viewers not only get to hear them both opine on some of the latest reality TV shows, both wrestling and non-wrestling related, you'll also likely hear them head to very unexpected and often hilarious topics. They've been known to talk about fashion or what's appropriate clothing. It's a terrific opportunity for viewers to share their passionate opinions too. It's the only place where you can get Johnny's movie reviews with his unique and sometimes odd perpective.

What's Phantom in Japan

Dave Simon is teamed with hardcore pro wrestling legend, The Green Phantom. Sharing a distinct fervor for pro wrestling they delve into New Japan World Wrestling, the world's second largest promotion. It attracts some of the best pro wrestling talents to perform in their ring in Japan and now some North American events too. Phantom and Simon go deep with NJPW and often make comparisons to the WWE in their wild and demanding manner. Truly entertaining and a must for any wrestling fan.
