The Judge David Johnson Experience will blow your f'n mind.
Never give up.
Arguably the most popular professional wrestler in the world, John Cena snags a three-disc set from WWE. The first disc is essentially a John Cena documentary, a lengthy look at one of the biggest names in the wrestling circuit. The program is divided by chapters into a look back at the various events and activities Cena has participated in.
The John Cena Experience kicks off with the WWE's annual Tribute to the Troops and Cena talking about his admiration for the people in the armed forces. From there, it's a variety of appearances (accepting an award from Make-a-Wish, visiting wounded soldiers, appearing on late night TV, flipping the coin at the Fiesta Bowl) mixed with behind-the-scenes footage of Cena training, acting, recording music and promoting. Binding it all together is an ongoing interview with Cena as he gets into biographical information and touches on his value system. Also, there's a whole lot of boosting of the WWE brand.
The remaining two DVDs are all matches:
• John Cena vs Booker T
• John Cena vs Kurt Angle
• John Cena vs Kurt Angle vs Shawn Michaels
• Edge vs John Cena
• John Cena vs Edge
• John Cena and Shawn Michaels vs Rated RKO
• John Cena vs Great Khali
• John Cena vs Bobby Lashley
• John Cena vs Randy Orton
• John Cena Returns
• John Cena vs Triple H
• John Cena vs Shawn Michaels
• John Cena vs Jack Swagger
• John Cena vs Big Show
• John Cena vs The Miz
• John Cena vs Shawn Michaels vs Triple H
I like Cena; he's a charismatic guy and find his movies engaging (12 Rounds—check it out). He's served well in this set. The documentary gives a nice overview of the stuff he likes to involve himself in, and despite the blatant company-pushing line, Cena comes across as someone who's passionate about what he does. The matches? A good variety (and he doesn't win all of them).
The documentary receives a clean 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer (matches are in full frame and anamorphic widescreen), audio is 2.0 stereo and there are no extras.
