When the WWE releases a multi-disc set about one performer you better be a fan of that athlete or entity. An obvious point, right. But I struggled to work through the three discs here because I’ve never cared about Brock Lesnar in the WWE – a Dino Bravo 2.0 that has neither engaged nor enraged me. I feel nothing towards his performances – I can acknowledge his strength, that’s obvious. But he is a lazy heel, no matter how much heat he draws. To me, it’s just boring.
That said, these are well-chosen matches for the most part. And I enjoyed the first disc – with bouts from his initial run in the early 2000s. It was nice to hear some of his insight too. Ahead of a match with Mr Perfect (one of Perfect’s last) Lesnar talks fondly about how Curt Hennig was a hero.
It also should go without saying that if you’re a Brock Lesnar fan or you have a Brock Lesnar fan in your life then this DVD will go over well.
Disc two is comprised of matches from his 2012 return on through 2014. And the final disc has matches from 2014’s Summer Slam down to the October 2015 Hell In A Cell event. Notable feuds include those with The Undertaker, Triple H and John Cena. There’s some seven hours of footage here. Far too much for me. But fill your boots if you’re a fan.
