REVIEW: WWE: Superstar Collection: Daniel Bryan

Leave a comment

I’ve been a fan of Bryan Danielson since about 2003 or so, he’s without question my favorite wrestler of the modern era. I was pretty excited when he got signed to the WWE but at the same time bummed because I knew there would be no more seeing him wrestle in Philly with a few hundred die hard wrestling fans. I knew there would be be no more hour long five star matches. And I really thought they’d either bury him or fire him pretty quickly. Luckily he’s stayed in the WWE and has risen to the top. This DVD looks lackluster on paper, whoever picked the matches should be ashamed but there were one or two I hadn’t seen and I had to buy it to support American Dragon anyway. This will be my first wrestling review of any type, hopefully more to come.

Vs. Jericho – This match was much better than I remember. I recall it being a five minute dissepiment. Granted it is short but not that short and it’s much better than I remembered. Pretty decent little NXT match.
On the DVD it says it has a history of Daniel Bryan and the Miz but really it’s just one of those promo things they seem to show during the shows of what happened the past two weeks or whatever. I was petty bummed about that.
Vs. The Miz – I hate the Miz, he’s pretty shitty. This match wasn’t a whole lot, it isn’t bad but it’s far from amazing and I’ll blame all of that on the Miz. I guess Danielson did pretty well with what he had to work with.
Money In the Bank – This is a match I had never seen, it was pretty good, especially considering half of the people in are pretty bad filler. It’s a fun match with some pretty good spots, I was entertained for sure.
Vs. Mark Henry – This match is was pretty good for what it was. It’s one of the ones I take issue with being on the DVD though (besides the damn Miz waste). There were much better matches from this whole Danielson/Henry/Show feud that they could have put on here. Still, not bad.
Vs. Big Show Vs. Mark Henry – This was a pretty great match, especially when you consider that it was two of the biggest big men in there. WWE did a great job building up to this match; I wish they would have put some of that stuff on the DVD. Hell they didn’t even put Danielson winning the title on here. But as a stand-alone match it works out pretty well. Best match on the DVD for sure.

All in all not the best collection, I’m pretty sure I could have put together a better Daniel Bryan collection for them but as it stands it’s alright. I knew there wasn’t going to be anything like the documentaries of the caliber that they put on the collections but I was hoping for something, instead we got nothing. But hey, I paid five bucks for it, it’s a pretty good DVD (why no Blu-ray I don’t know) at that price, and it supports the real best wrestler in the world.

Daniel Bryan vs. Chris Jericho (NXT)
Daniel Bryan vs. the Miz (US Title Match/Night of Champions)
Daniel Bryan vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Wade Barrett vs. Kane vs. Justin Gabriel vs. Sheamus vs. Sin Cara (Money in the Bank)
