Randy Orton WWE Superstar Collection DVD Cover

© 2012 WWE, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Randy Orton is one of the biggest stars in the WWE Universe. In 2004, the third-generation star became the youngest World Champion in WWE History. Randy is a six-time WWE Champion and a three-time World Heavyweight Champion. This value-priced single disc DVD was released a year after WWE Home Video gave him the three-disc DVD set treatment.

Review and Recommendation

Format of the DVD: As is the case with all of the previous sets in the Superstar Collection, this DVD is approximately 90-minutes long. It features four matches with three of them being for a World Championship.

Editing on the DVD: His match with Ted DiBiase is cut where the commercial break took place as it was when the match was originally aired on television.

Match Selection: While the prior sets in this series have focused on the matches where a wrestler wins a championship, this DVD features Randy in the role of the champion that is defending his belt. With all of the great matches in his career, I wouldn't count any of these amongst his best or most memorable. Another problem is that all three pay-per-view matches on this DVD have already been released on other DVD sets.

Overall Recommendation: While this DVD may not be expensive, if you figure out the price on a per-minute basis, these value-priced DVDs are not really a good value. If you are a fan of Orton, I would recommend buying the Blu-ray version Evolution of a Predator before buying this one. For roughly twice the price you will be getting more than four times the action.

Matches on This DVD Set

For matches that are available on another non-PPV DVD, I will note the DVD it is also available on in parenthesis and italics.
