THE GREATEST EVER

SUPERSTAR COLLECTION
SHAWN MICHAELS

The Superstars Series is a set of WWE DVD's that showcase a particular wrestler and gives you four or five of their best matches. From what I can tell they are more recent matches which is great if you are just getting into it. They are pretty cheap at only five dollars so once this one was released on my favorite wrestler ever Shawn Michaels I had to get it.

1.VS CHRIS JERICHO-excellent start to the DVD with a match from Judgment Day 2008. This was the true definition of a back and forth match with all the counters that these two traded. These two were responsible for some of the best matches ever in the WWE. From HBK's arm bar over the ropes to Jericho landed that "code breaker" before "some sweet chin music". Of course HBK gets the win after countering the "Walls of Jericho"

2.DX VS LEGACY- the match I was waiting for when this event happened as my boy HBK was returning, this being Summerslam 2009. Of course you all know by now that DX entered on the tank and such for the DX army. The match itself is great and really helped put Legacy over even in their losing effort like mentioned in other reviews. There is a lot of great wrestling going on in this match as well as some brawling. DX of course takes the win as the crowd was crazy for them the whole night.

3.[NO DQ MATCH] VS KANE-this match happened on March 22 2010 and was his last match ever on Monday Night Raw as he would lose the next match on this collection to Kane's brother Taker. This was a great match that would show Shawn's tenacity and will to win. Kane being the bigger man relied on his strength here but HBK still pulled of the win after a super kick. Of course I should mention that the Undertaker showed up and chokeslamed Shawn.

4.[STREAK VS CAREER] VS UNDERTAKER- the match I was waiting for the most that night [Wrestlemania 26] since Shawn is my all time favorite and I wanted him to beat Taker so bad. Of course everyone was right there with me but they all thought there was no way Taker was going to lose his streak even if they wanted HBK to win. Much like my brother said earlier with Bret's match but to me reality was taking place in that ring. It was because I knew that if Shawn lost he really was retiring, it was not part of a storyline. While I did not know the outcome yet I did know it would be match of the night and would live up to last year's match. This has got to be one of the most dramatic matches ever as the fans just stood up and were in awe of these two legends. There were so many near falls and close calls it was incredible. The memorable moments happened throughout the match including a great moonsault from Shawn. The ending of this match is absolutely perfect with Shawn giving Taker the throat slash so that he could be finished off like a warrior. Taker giving him respect at the end and the crowd reaction afterwards was great.

This is a great little set that really showcases HBK at his greatness. Each match is great and fun plus you get the epic final match of his career against Taker. I really didn't think I would get any of these Superstar sets until this one came out. I own every one of his VHS/DVD/Blu-Ray's so I had to get it. There are no special features but for five bucks this is a great set. If you are wanting to get into wrestling these little sets, this one in particular, might be just what you need.
