Re-Post: DVD Review WWE Top 50 Superstars of All Time

Re-Posted from my original blog as I am removing all wrestling references off of it making it a family blog.

Hosted by Todd Grisham, WWE’s 50 Greatest Superstars is an excellent countdown documentary of the 50 greatest stars as decided by the current superstars in the WWE.

Each wrestler featured is highlighted in a 2.5 – 3 minute bio-clip featuring highlights of great moments as well as comments both old and newly recorded by fellow superstars.  The bio-clips for the top 5 were a couple minutes longer.  Most of the bio-clips are extremely emotional and can make you laugh, smile, and at times cry. 

One of my favorite bio-clips is of Bruno Sammartino for the comments from Vince J McMahon and the old comments from Bruno himself.  I would truly love WWE to put out some documentaries on the 60’s & 70’s with the old footage.

William Regal, Arn Anderson (both should have their own DVD’s), and Matt Striker provide some of the best comments on almost every superstar.  Other’s that comment frequently are the Miz, JJ Dillon, John Cena, Jerry Lawler & Billy Kidman.  There are many, many more that comment as well.  

As far as placement on the list, I don’t agree with Rey Mysterio being in the top 10, and am appalled that Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard were left off the list.

Number 1 on the list is Shawn Michaels, and he deserves it, Chris Jericho sums it up best with, “He steals the show at every event that he is on, because he’s Shawn Michaels and that’s what he does.”

The Extra’s on this 3 DVD set are amazing as they cover a broad spectrum of time including:

NWA World Championship: Lou Thesz vs. Argentina Rocca

Women’s Champion: The Fabulous Moolah vs. Susan Green
Madison Square Garden – June 16, 1975

Boxing Match: Gorilla Monsoon vs. Andre The Giant
Puerto Rico – September 23, 1977

AWA Heavyweight Championship Match: Jerry “The King” Lawler vs. Curt Hennig
August 13, 1988

WWE Championship: “Nature Boy” Ric Flair vs. Bret “Hit Man” Hart
SaskatoonCanada – October 12, 1992

Undertaker, Ken, Matt & Jeff Hardy vs. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Triple H, Edge & Chritian             RAW – April 23, 2001

Eddie Guerrero vs. Big Show
Smackdown! – April 15, 2004

World Heavyweight Championship: Edge vs. The Undertatker
WrestleMania XXIV – March 30, 2008

Plus many, many more matches, 21 in all. 

Definitely a great DVD to add to the collection!
