Fittingly, WWE Royal Rumble 2010 is most notable for the Rumble match itself, and in particular the surprising return of Edge.
I feel that WWE Royal Rumble 2007 is a topsy-turvy show but Cena vs. Umaga is tremendous as is the closing stretch of the Rumble itself.
ECW December To Dismember 2006 goes down as quite simply being one of the absolute worst WWE Pay-Per-View events of all time.
WWF No Mercy 2001 is a forgotten gem of a show, with a great double main event and a very good Ladder match further down the card.
WWF SummerSlam 2001 is quite entertaining, though a notch below both the preceding 2000 and subsequent 2002 cards.
Under different circumstances and with more genuine star power, WWF Invasion 2001 would be remembered as an all-time legendary show.
WWF Backlash 2000 was one hell of an event and a great example of why people fondly reminisce about the Attitude Era all these years later.
In 2001, the wrestling business changed dramatically. Both ECW and WCW went under, the latter being purchased by the WWF. The short-term fall-out included the Invasion angle by what would become a WCW/ECW Alliance. But what if WCW had remained in existence?
This is by far the strongest of the initial Live In The UK DVDs, and possibly the strongest of the entire series. No doubt these episodes will end up on the Network, but while you wait for this development, I would definitely recommend getting this DVD.
If you're a Dudleyz fan, you'll love this DVD, and if you're not a fan of Bubba Ray and D-Von, this release might just convert you into an honorary Dudley. Just don't get too excited the next time that it's approaching dinner time and your relative kindly asks you to "get the table".
To conclude, this DVD isn't quite in the same league as Breaking The Code. However, it is a very enjoyable and entertaining look at some of Jericho's most memorable matches, but is more notable for bringing together plenty of hidden gems and unreleased battles. If you're a Jerichoholic, you will love this DVD.
If you don't own this, buy it today; it's one of the best overall packages that WWE has ever released, and it's not even on a wrestler. In fact, to achieve that may end up being Paul Heyman's greatest accomplishment.
This is my opinion on how the WWF/WWE could have handled the invasion angle involving WCW to improve on what we actually saw.
