As a lifelong WWE fan, a person who owns many WWE DVDs and VHS videos from all eras - this one is one of the biggest disappointments I've ever come across.
Yes, there are some great moments on this DVD. The problem with it is you don't actually see them in their entirety. The best of Raw DVD was (mostly) complete segments, and it was excellent.
This DVD follows the format of those (extremely annoying) countdown shows you see on TV every week. The segments are chopped to pieces, and you get a constant running commentary from guys being interviewed about them such as Michael PS Hayes, The Miz, and Santino Marella - who is actually quite funny - not funny enough to make this DVD watchable, I'm afraid.
Younger viewers and fans of these countdown show MAY enjoy this set, but anyone who wants to see, feel, and truly appreciate these so-called 'Top 100 moments in Smackdown history' will not enjoy it. When you have a massive moment such as Hulk Hogan's return, you would expect to see a complete segment of it, from the beginning of his entrance to the minute he leaves the ring - but you don't. What you get is highlights of that 10-15 minute segment condensed into about 3 minutes. Not good enough.
When you buy a collection such as this, it's because you want to revel in the moments, the sounds, the sights, the music and the ovations - you do NOT get that with this DVD.
And whilst many of these moments really were great - there are a lot of them that only show the silly side of the WWE and even the funniest moments are chopped up so badly that you can't truly appreciate them. And by the time you do get to something worth watching, you're already in such a bad mood that it makes it hard to enjoy - and then they cut to a wrestler talking about the show in a studio which completely ruins it.
I'm not one the guys who complains about WWE's current TV product, because I do still enjoy it, and I truly expected to enjoy this DVD, but I didn't.
The one saving grace is that there are a handful of decent matches that are shown in there entirety - but that's not enough to make this DVD worth buying.
To put it in a nutshell, I would not watch this if it were on TV, and I'm not happy that I've bought it. Extremely annoying and deflating to watch as a WWE fan.
