The Road Is Jericho: Epic Stories and Rare Matches From Y2J

The Road Is Jericho: Epic Stories and Rare Matches From Y2J
Y2J fans rejoice: the ‘Highlight’ is back with an all new DVD/Blu-ray, The Road Is Jericho: Epic Stories and Rare Matches From Y2J,  set for release on March 16th. This release is a little different from the classic “where they grew up, how they broke into the business and where they are now” documentary-style release the WWE usually put out, and that’s a good thing. In The Road is Jericho, we join Y2J in his limo on route to a... 

WWE Brothers of Destruction Greatest Matches DVD Review

WWE Brothers of Destruction Greatest Matches DVD Review
The Undertaker and Kane are two of the most iconic wrestlers in the history of the WWE. Half brothers in kayfabe, the two men are both multiple time World Heavyweight Champions, and one could attribute much of their success to the existence of one another, as Kane’s character was created to be a foil to that of the Undertaker himself. Despite all of their rivalries and violent history with each other, the brothers went on to also be a successful... 

WWE OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents In WCW History DVD review

WWE OMG! Volume 2 – The Top 50 Incidents In WCW History DVD review
While many fans long for the days of the Monday Night Wars where we had two rival companies fighting for top dog status in the wrestling industry, it is a treat for long term wrestling aficionados to be able to view compilations of ECW, WCW and other companies released under the WWE banner. There’s a huge amount of rich history going back through names such as Ric Flair, Sting, Lex Luger and all the biggest names in the industry over the years,... 

WWE Payback 2014 Blu-ray Review

WWE Payback 2014 Blu-ray Review
June PPVs for WWE are typically a mishmash of finishing feuds and planting the seeds for bigger ones building up to Summerslam, one of the original ‘big four’ PPVs. Ones like Payback can be ‘sleeper’ PPVs that deliver far better than expected, and actually have the benefit of low expectations going in. With The Shield still staying strong and Evolution not giving up after their loss at Extreme Rules, it was inevitable that... 

WWE Ladies And Gentlemen, My Name Is Paul Heyman Blu-ray Review

WWE Ladies And Gentlemen, My Name Is Paul Heyman Blu-ray Review
Paul Heyman. A name that means many different things to many different people. To classic wrestling fans, he’s a manager from WCW. To others, he’s a commentator or the father of ECW. Modern audiences will know him best for being the advocate for Brock Lesnar and CM Punk amongst others. There’s no doubt that Heyman’s a guy that has had his fingers in many pies over the last nearly three decades – and I was very surprised... 

WWE Extreme Rules 2014 Blu-Ray Review

WWE Extreme Rules 2014 Blu-Ray Review
With the Road To Wrestlemania over, WWE once again faced that yearly question of ‘what now?’ So much of the year is spent building up to their biggest spectacular that they often struggle once they’ve reached the peak – in this case Daniel Bryan overcoming all odds to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title and the YES! movement celebrating worldwide. With the shocking result in the Undertaker/Brock Lesnar match and new stars like... 

WWE Royal Rumble 2014 DVD review

WWE Royal Rumble 2014 DVD review
If anyone was to ask me what my favourite gimmick match of all time was, I could answer that in a split second – the Royal Rumble. There is no match more exciting, full of superstars and complex booking over the space of an hour or so. It’s a match that not only brings all the current feuds together, but reignites old ones and sets the wheels in motion for new going forward. After all, it’s the first stop on that famous Road to Wrestlemania,...

ECW Unreleased – Volume 2 DVD Review

ECW Unreleased – Volume 2 DVD Review
It’s hard to believe that three letters synonymous with a small time bingo hall over a decade ago still float around the wrestling world with love and affection all these years later. ECW (aka Extreme Championship Wrestling) was the third biggest wrestling company at the time behind the two juggernauts of the industry WCW and WWE. Long before being associated with the Best and the Beast, Paul Heyman had moved from his managerial roles in WCW... 

WWE The Top 25 Rivalries In Wrestling History review

WWE The Top 25 Rivalries In Wrestling History review
As a fan of WWF/WWE for more years than I care to remember (my first memory is of a Wrestlemania IV VHS!), The Top 25 Rivalries in Wrestling History is a fascinating overview of the best feuds from times gone by. Not only is it a trip down memory lane but it also serves as a great introduction to wrestlers of the past for those newer fans out there. There are many who only know Hulk Hogan by reputation alone or the Verne Gagnes and Nick Bockwinkels...
