This presentation takes place all day behind the scenes at the RAW after WrestleMania 32 looking at different superstars preparing throughout the day for that night's RAW. The main story told is based around Enzo & Cass who made their main roster debut & looked back at their journey from Enzo being discovered through YouTube to Cass being told at one time that "the only reason you haven't been fired is that your six feet tall" all the way through to what they feel is their "graduation" along with who else was there to make the moment even more special. Other stories looked at was the return of Maryse to WWE after 5 years to be beside her real life husband The Miz, the debut of Apollo Crews, A.J. Styles "arrival", who didn't appear on camera but was backstage to sign their contracts discussing how a different path was taken to make it along with a mini-reunion with a "brother" backstage along plus highlights of past major events that have happened on this yearly edition of RAW. Along with looking at the events of that day was different discussions of how the crowd makes the entire event "bizarro world" from their different chants to interactions with each other & the superstars from "YES! YES! YES" to Fandangoing.
WWE Womens Champion Bull Nakano vs. Alundra Blayze - Bull Nakano was heavily using her size advantage in the beginning by overpowering Blaze and applying various submission holds including some you don't even see the men attempt to do while Blayze counteracted with her speed as this was a very competitive match that is probably the best womens wrestling match on national television of the decade & a "lost classic" under those circumstances.

Mankind vs. Bob Holly - This was the debut of the Mankind using intense brawling tactics & doing things to himself such as pulling his own hair along with a submission move that had never been seen before or since by anyone else as "Spark Plugg" was able to get some offense in but this was mostly a showcasing of what was the most unorthodox character in WWE history at that time not just from his in-ring style including having different entrance & exit music.
WWE European Champion Chris Jericho vs. Eddie Guerrero - This happened the night after WrestleMania as Eddie Guerrero was chasing after Chyna for weeks who also just happened to be Chris Jericho's associate as well. The match itself wasn't on the level of their past WCW & future WWE matches but still very competitive for what it was with both men going past paced & hitting some moves with heavy impact but this was all about the beginning of the "Latino Heat" character Eddie would have throughout his WWE career as far as his entertainment value from the pre-match promo & post match antics while also constantly making references towards "mamacita" Chyna.

Elimination Match: World Tag Team Champions Lance Storm & Chief Morley vs. Dudley Boyz vs. Rob Van Dam & Kane - It was during this time that the Dudley Boyz were forced to be members Eric Bischoff's administration helping Storm & Morley retain the tag titles the previous night at WrestleMania XIX setting up this match where RVD & Kane would join the Bischoff administration if they lost. RVD & Kane relying on their own individual strengths with RVD's educated feet & Kane's power while both using teamwork such as dual aerial offense & combining their signature maneuvers with Storm & Morley attempting to divide & conquer while the Dudleys worked as they were instructed to causing miscommunication in more ways than one in a match advertised as an elimination but played out as something different.
Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin vs. Chris Jericho vs. Christian - All three men came into the match sore from the first Money In The Bank Ladder Match at WrestleMania 21 to the point where one participant had his ribs taped as one man was the odd man out early on to the point where the other two opponents turned on each other because they kept shoving each other out of the way to beat on the other man as the match went on with each man attempting the same strategy such as attempting to isolate one opponent in order to focus on the other & stealing pins or even one man pinning both opponents at once in non-stop action match.
Tag Team Battle Royal: World Tag Team Champions John Cena & Shawn Michaels vs. Chavo Guerrero & Gregory Helms vs. The Hardy's vs. Brian Kendrick & Paul London vs. Sandman & Tommy Dreamer vs. Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch vs. Val Venis & Viscera vs. Kevin Thorn & Marcus Cor Von vs. Dave Taylor & William Regal vs. Johnny Nitro & The Miz - Despite Shawn Michaels & John Cena main eventing WrestleMania 23 for the WWE Championship, they were both World Tag Team Champions & had just finished defending their titles in a battle royal before being forced to immediately do it again with various highlights & stories told include the one man everyone singled out in the beginning & the smart strategy used to eliminate him, the shocking elimination with one man making it clear he only had "one goal" and when it came down to the final two teams.
Lumberjack Match: Unified WWE Tag Team Champion Carlito & Primo vs. Miz & John Morrison - This was the rematch from the unification match on the WrestleMania 25 pre-show with the special stipulation that saw both teams attempt to use the lumberjacks to their advantage maneuvering their opponents to the outside for the lumberjacks to take liberties before tossing them back in as both teams executed double team maneuvers & both taking some high risk that didn't always pay off while the participants themselves also took revenge on the lumberjacks themselves in a fun tag match.
World Champion Alberto Del Rio vs. Dolph Ziggler - Alberto Del Rio just defeated Jack Swagger & Zeb Coulter in a handicap match but had his ankle heavily worked over throughout the entire match to the point where he wasn't able to stand which was the perfect opportunity for "The Show Off" to become "The Champion."
[Best Of RAW & SmackDown 2013; Blu-Ray version of Straight To The Top: Money In The Bank Anthology]
Kofi Kingston vs. Fandango - This wasn't much of a match as they were just feeling each other out before a man who had his issues with Fandango made his presence known but this match was more significant for the crowd inventing what would go on to be known as "Fandangoing."
[Best Of RAW & SmackDown 2013]
WWE Divas Champion A.J. Lee vs. Paige - A.J. came out to brag about her dominance over the divas division & being the longest Divas Champion in history before NXT Divas Champion made her debut to congratulate her leading to a challenge from A.J. that ended with Paige doing something that nobody had been able to do for months as this was all about Paige making the biggest impact possible in her debut.

WWE Intercontinental Champion Daniel Bryan vs. Dolph Ziggler - Former Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett was on commentary as both men came into the match sore from WrestleMania XXXI Ladder Match as what started out as chain wrestling evolved into trading strikes & pulling hair on the lock up as both men pulled out all the stops with innovative versions of impactful offense & executing offense that would hurt themselves as much as their opponent such as trading headbutts as they went back & forth throughout the match in what was a highly competitive encounter but more significant for who decided to appear afterwords.
WWE United States Champion John Cena vs. Dean Ambrose - This was Cena's first open challenge after winning the championship the night before at WrestleMania while Ambrose is coming into the match with a bad back from his participation in the Ladder Match. They traded momentum using their trademark offense while having counters & using their opponent's offense against them such as Cena countering a powerbomb into an STF & Ambrose finding a way out of an Attitude Adjustment on more than one occasion in a hard fought match.
[U.S. Championship: A Legacy Of Greatness]
WWE Intercontinental Champion Zack Ryder vs. The Miz - Ryder won the Intercontinental Championship in a Ladder Match at WrestleMania 32 & gave his victory speech including a reference to his own childhood memory coming full circle before Miz interrupted setting up this match that saw Ryder going aerial with various dropkicks & top move maneuvers while Miz was able to avoid Ryder using his momentum against him using his trademark offense with ultimately a surprise appearance being the deciding factor in this back & forth match.
A.J. Styles vs. Cesaro vs. Chris Jericho vs. Kevin Owens - This was to determine the #1 contendor for the WWE Championship at the upcoming Payback PPV with Cesaro making his return from injury replacing Sami Zayn in a match that featured various highlights & stories told from old feuds reignited along with dream matches yet to be seen in WWE with each superstar hitting signature moves at one point including back to back or on all three opponents with each man attempting to steal a pin in a match full of non-stop action with all four men interacting with each other from start to finish.
(Blu-Ray) Ken Shamrock & Steve Blackman vs. The Rock & Faarooq - The Rock was limping to the ring due to the injury suffered at WrestleMania XIV with Faarooq fighting both men as The Rock would avoid tagging into the match before eventually walking out in what turned out to be nothing more than a glorified handicap match with the bigger story being the aftermath between Rock & Faarooq along with the rest of The Nation Of Domination.
(Blu-Ray) World Tag Team Champions Big Show & Kane vs. Spirit Squad - Kenny & Mikey were the legal participants while the rest of the Squad was on the outside has Kane & Show were completely dominate with their power resulting in the Squad getting involved on the outside leaving an opening for the legal members of the group of focus on a body part before taking advantage of a situation to make things seem even in their favor.
[Blu-Ray edition of Wrestling's Greatest Factions]
(Blu-Ray) Jeff Hardy, CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, John Cena, Ricky Steamboat vs. Chris Jericho, Kane, Matt Hardy, Big Show, Edge - This was the WrestleMania 25 All-Star Showcase with most of the opponents from the previous night meeting in this match that featured some highlights like opponents reigning their rivalry from the previous night with one man avoiding his challenger, past feuds being revisited, not only tension between opponents but also partners, and one opponent being singled out & worked on to the point where you saw Big Show's hand print on his body, and one man being shown the ultimate sign of respect from his partners after the match in a fun match.
[Best Of RAW 2009]
(Blu-Ray) WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. Wade Barrett - This was a rematch from the WrestleMania 29 kickoff show where Miz won the championship as Barrett started off very aggressively causing the referee to pull him away in the opening seconds as both men went back & forth using their trademark offense & using similar strategy against each other as they continued to trade momentum both in & outside of the ring in a competitive match.
(Blu-Ray) Zack Ryder vs. Alexander Rusev - Rusev made his WWE debut (outside of NXT) at the Royal Rumble earlier in the year with this being his first official match along with the debut of his manager Lana as this was Rusev using his power & various kicks in a quick dominate showcase.
Other DVD extras include include Sid's betrayal of Shawn Michaels, Mr. McMahon face to face with Stone Cold after WrestleMania XIV, X-Pac returns, the nWo turns on Hulk Hogan, Brock Lesnar's original debut & his later return, Eric Bischoff fires Stone Cold, Goldberg's debut, Ric Flair's retirement speech, The Rock challenges John Cena for WrestleMania, Ultimate Warrior's final appearance with Shawn Michaels' retirement speech & the debut of Enzo & Cass on the Blu-Ray.
This presentation is very similar to another recent DVD set in The True Story Of The Royal Rumble where this wasn't the typical in-dept documentary expected from WWE more than just a combination of a highlight reel & backstage look at the event while the extras were a mixed bag as some matches had quality but were more more about different moments such a debuts. In the end, this wasn't a bad presentation but only something I would recommend for those who don't already have access to the network.
