Review:
This is an extensive look at the former WWE champion on a three disc box set that features just about everything he has ever done in and out of the WWE! The chapters menu is something original, showing a speedometer and you move the needle to select each different chapter! There are some fantastic segments and extras on these DVDs and I also have some information on Easter eggs hidden on the discs that I will get to in due course.

The DVD starts in West Newberry, John’s home town; with comments from his father and brothers about everything from his difficult birth to him spending days designing cardboard wrestling belts! Very interesting piece and a nice insight into his childhood and his family this continues into the next chapter, Hard Nocks; where we learn John first got into weight training and hear some interesting stories about his early days training with Dave Nock.

We get to hear how John went from body building to wrestling in OVW as Prototype, including some fantastic clips of his early promos and commentary from Jim Ross, Edge, Tazz and other members of the WWE team.

From there we go to his early matches in the ‘bike shorts’ against Angle and Jericho, and then to the famous rap persona he developed and how that took off and became HUGE.

So far, no commentary from the man himself…

We hear comments on the annual Tribute To The Troops shows and what it means to John to go over there as told by his old friends and his family.

The next chapter is all about the bling! Vince McMahon and Jim Ross give their opinions on the now famous spinner belts from his US Championship to the WWE championship belts that they ‘customised’ for John Cena’s reigns. Jim Ross says when he’s asked to get items for charity auctions etc the most requested item is the championship spinner belt!

Next up JBL talks very honestly and passionately about passing the title on to Cena at WrestleMania 21 for Cena’s first ever WWE Championship reign and voices his disgust that Cena was not the last thing we saw as WrestleMania 21 closed. Very interesting comments. We also see highlights from the following ‘I Quit’ rematch with JBL at Judgement Day that year which ended in an extremely bloody victory from Cena.

Still no comments from the champ….

Everything is on this DVD… EVERYTHING! If I was to go through chapter by chapter this would be a very long review, but we go through everything from signature moves to his weight training regime; his rap CD, ‘You Can’t See Me’ (Complete with comments from Snoop Dogg Method Man, Ice T and more!) to his switch from Smackdown to Raw in the 2005 Draft Lottery.

My personal favourite chapter has to be the WHOLE chapter on his rivalry with Edge and some very flattering comments from Jim Ross and Vince McMahon about how this feud played out that surprised me. Sure from a fan’s point of view I know I was in a win win situation, but I always love to hear what these things are thought about behind the scenes and this one got nothing but highly praised!

With clips from The Marine, Matches, promos, ads & more I really believe there is NOTHING more that could have been added to these DVDs. For any Cena fan it’s a definite watch from start to finish, I couldn’t turn it off even for a minute!

If you’re one of those ‘cooler than cool’ people who hate Cena.. borrow this from one of your not so cool friends then tell me how terrible John Cena is! If you’re a fan like me.. and proud of it..BUY IT!
