Judge David Johnson is the greatest superstar of the new millennium—in the sport of competitive Fruit Roll-up Eating.
A decade of distinction.
I'm not a wrestling guy, but I've usually appreciated what the WWE DVD studio does with its releases. More often than not I am confident in saying that wrestling fans will siphon significant amusement from the varied releases.
This one, however, leaves something to be desired. Greatest Superstars of the 21st Century is essentially a clip show and poorly produced one at that.
It's a three DVD set, the first disc dedicated to a rundown of the big names that had done battle in the squared circle, including such luminaries as:
That's an impressive list, no doubt, but it's the way these superstars are rolled out that's so disappointing. Each wrestler gets a three to four minute segment featuring dull narration, footage from their matches and the occasional sound bite from one of their peers. Unfortunately, each of these segments is preceded by a cheesy intro that belongs in something like Mortal Kombat 3 or Shaq Fu instead of a mainstream DVD production. It's laughably bad.
The next two discs offer a selection of 12 matches, featuring the aforementioned superstars engaged in all manner of pugilism on a variety of weekly shows or pay-per-view events.
The technical specs: full frame all the way, supported by a 2.0 stereo strack. No extras.
Put this one in the camel clutch.
