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.
