Review: WWE Us Championship - A Legacy of Greatness (Blu-ray)
19 May 2016 2:43 AM, PDT
WWE releases come in two flavours, the regular PPV sets that are always good for reliving those favourite moments, and the releases that focus on a particular topic or aspect of the WWE’s illustrious history. These latter releases have proved to be exceedingly well put together over the last few years, having established a winning template of including a feature length documentary accompanied by a couple of dozen matches.
I was somewhat disappointed to discover, then, that the new WWE Us Championship – A Legacy of Greatness release doesn’t include a documentary, as I would have thought that the long and varied history of this often overlooked belt would have been ideal for this treatment.
Instead we get a bumper crop of matches that are introduced in groups by short clips of John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield awkwardly reading off his autocue and not entirely convincing the viewer that he really wants to be there. »
