Review


I found this one disc, 90-minute presentation to be a fairly entertaining look back at the WWE career of Sheamus. After a short intro package, you are thrown straight into the action as Sheamus chases his first WWE Championship in a Tables Match against John Cena from WWE's inaugral TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs PPV. It's a decent enough encounter with plenty of suspense based spots and a decent storyline based around Cena's supposedly injured back, which for the most part Cena sells pretty well. I'm still not sure if the finish is a botch though! Up next is an exciting Fatal Fourway bout from the aptly named Fatal 4-Way as Sheamus chases the WWE Championship again, with Edge and Randy Orton been thrown into the mix this time. This is what you'd expect with the action staying at a fairly high pace, with plenty of false finishes and signature moves, unfortunately the finish to this one holds it back. The match of the disc comes in the form of the 2010 King of the Ring final, as Sheamus takes on John Morrison. This probably isn't the best match that these two had, as I remember them having a stellar series of matches in the latter part of 2010, but it's certainly entertaining with both men coming off looking better for being apart of it. It's strange to see Sheamus slipping down the card as he challenges for Daniel Bryan's United States Championship on Raw in 2011. It's a decent enough match, but these two certainly had bigger and better later, nothing particularly memorable here. To round of this disc we get the tail end of the 2012 Royal Rumble from Sheamus's entry at number 22. There isn't anything particular notable in this one, until the very end with the final two men left in, as they both put on a good display with a number of exciting spots to close the disc.

I found this to be a nice little look back at one of WWE's more underrated wrestlers of the past year, but also one of WWE's success stories, as Sheamus is one of the few wrestlers who have risen up through the WWE ranks over the past couple of years. The action for the most part is entertaining, and pretty easy to sit and watch, and for less than a fiver you can't really go wrong with this disc, the match with Morrison would be a nice addition to any ones collection. It's a shame Christmas has come and gone as this would have made for a nice stocking filler for the kids.
