Daniel Bryan Superstar Collection DVD Review

WWE Superstar Collection: Daniel Bryan DVD Cover

© 2012 WWE, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
"YES! YES! YES!" Daniel Bryan is the star of the latest budget-priced DVD by WWE Home Video. Daniel Bryan began his career as a contestant on NXT and has gone on to become a United States Champion, a Money in the Bank Ladder Match Winner, and a World Heavyweight Champion. All of these highlights from his WWE career are on this 90-minute DVD with the exception of the match where he won the World Heavyweight Championship. "NO! NO! NO!"

Review and Recommendation

Format of the DVD: Just as with the first two discs in the Superstar Collection, this disc runs for approximately 90 minutes and features several matches without a host or documentary for the disc.

Match Selection: When Daniel Bryan started his WWE career, he entered as the top star on the indy scene and it was going to be interesting to see if he could adapt his game from that venue to the WWE. Over the course of 90-minutes, you see the transformation of his character and most of his career highlights. For some reason, his World Heavyweight Championship victory isn't on this set and I can't figure out why. It's not like the time of the disc would have been a factor because there was plenty of room on this disc and the match was only a few seconds long.

Overall Recommendation: While each disc of Superstar Collection is cheaper than a normal priced WWE DVD set, if you just buy them all you will find that on a per-minute basis you will be spending a lot more money than if you just payed for a normal three-disc set. With that being said, there is a legitimate need for discs like these. There are several wrestlers on the roster that have some great highlights to their career but haven't been with the company long enough for there to be a need for a three-disc retrospective of their career. A wrestler like Daniel Bryan easily fits into this category. If you are a fan of his then I highly recommend this disc. Even if you're not a huge fan of his work, there is still enough good stuff on this disc to make it worth purchasing a value-priced disc of his.
