3.0 out of 5 stars Even the hardcore Cena fan will be disappointed with this set, January 25, 2008
By 
This review is from: WWE: John Cena - My Life (DVD)
Seeing as how John Cena has been the franchise player in WWE for the last three years, it seems only right that WWE dedicate a three-disc DVD set to him. The DVD includes a documentary tracing Cena's life and career thus far, seven of his best matches, and a lot of extras, including a detailed look at his car and military coin collections and every installment of the popular "5 Questions With the Champ" webcast. That seems like a lot, but in the end, even the hardcore Cena fan will be left disappointed by this set. The documentary is pretty solid, focusing on Cena's childhood, his adventures in college, in bodybuilding and his rise as a professional wrestler. The look at his car collection is pretty interesting as well, as Cena holds some beautiful rides in his possession. The rest of the set, however, falls flat.

The second disc is dedicated to seven of Cena's best matches, in their entirety, complete with a brief commentary by Cena himself before each of them. The matches touch on every portion of his career: his OVW days (vs. Randy Orton), as a gritty up-and-comer in WWE (vs. Rikishi, Chris Jericho), and as WWE Champion (vs. JBL, RVD, Edge). Each match is symbolic of an important moment in his wrestling career, but viewers will feel simply underwhelmed after running through the match section, a portion which is usually the meat of WWE's 3-disc anthology sets.

The third disc only leaves viewers more disappointed, as the disc is simply every installment of Cena's "5 Questions with the Champ" webcast, over fifteen ten-minute segments featuring Cena ranting and raving while answering fan mail. These segments are generally amusing, but WWE could have used this third disc to include more matches, some of Cena's infamous promos or rap battles, or even more deleted scenes from the documentary.

In the end, the set starts off strong but just falls flat with the second and third discs. Still, for 20 bucks, you'll get plenty of bang for your buck.
