| The best he is at what he does.
Jericho's been my favorite pro wrestler since I started watching almost a decade ago. My excitement for his epic victory over the seemingly-unstoppable Rock and Steve Austin for the biggest prize in the game on the same night was on the same level at least as a die-hard football fan's team winning the SuperBowl. His in-ring style/prowess and comedic talent are what captivated me early on all those years ago, and are two factors he still has in spades to this day. After watching this encompassing DVD that works as a visual WWE-ified version of his interesting book, A Lion's Tale(a great companion piece for a better look at his pre-WWE life), I've figured out what makes him the best he is at what he does, which is the sheer consistency of his work throughout his career, something he owes no credit to but himself. Whether its outperforming "Mr. Wrestlemania" Shawn Michaels on his own show or getting the very best out of old fogies like Hogan and Undertaker, Jericho encapsulates sports entertainment and is the one man who always gets a good match out of anyone, even if the crowd is dead on arrival. This DVD is a satisfying, often humorous, look at the man's career; taking a detour to his life outside, but mostly hitting the high notes. My favorite aspect was seeing skits from his t.v past thought lost in the annals of boob-tube history, including very random footage, highlights being the ridiculous sightseeing promo for his team the Thrillseekers and a post-Raw segment with Stone Cold Steve Austin more entertaining than their actual match showcased on the extras. The matches are all good, however, Jericho's got enough material worth five disks at least; noticeable omissions I noticed was the lack of various "big" matches he was a part of such as the first MITB or Elimination Chamber or TLC 4/5, something that would've spiced up the single-match heavy disk some more. Another was the lack of Benoit, Jericho's one great rival throughout his career. His notoriety is reason enough to omit him; however any fan can see the holes classics such as the Royal Rumble ladder match were supposed to fill had things turned out differently. The final nitpick would be the lack of WWE promos showing the soap opera hijinks that lead up to to the event. They were always something WWE did well, their omission from the matches that apply being something missed by this nostalgia seeker. All in all, this DVD is fun all the way through, and I recommend it to both Jerichoholics and people hoping to see the aspect of pro wrestling worth watching represented in the career of one Ayatollah of Rock N' Rolla.
