I don't typically review DVD's that are short on documentary and long on wrestling content because - really - what value am I going to add beyond a listing of matches and a generic recommendation whether this DVD set is worth your money?
Sadly, the 2010 release Wrestling's Highest Flyers by WWE leaves me with more or less the same feeling: an interesting concept but not one I can probably sell anyone on. The problem, largely, is that WWE never really get into the subject matter. They don't tell you what makes certain highest flyers tick; there's no attempt to rank them in any way (hmmm.... perhaps there's a future Top 50 in that?). So what you're left with is a fairly random collection of high-flying wrestlers.
The collection itself is impressive, as between the WWE, WCW, ECW and World Class libraries, there are many great high-flyers to choose from. And each wrestler is given a brief music video before their featured match begins.
Unfortunately, the match selection isn't the best and when you don't have a documentary to fall back on, that's a pretty big deal. For example, we have Evan Bourne vs. Zack Ryder, Superfly Jimmy Snuka vs. Samoan # 3 (Samu), Chavo Guerrero vs. Jamie Noble, Taka Michinoku vs. Pantera, John Morrison vs. Tyson Kidd, The Hardy Boyz vs. Kaientai, and Brian Pillman vs. Alex Wright. None of them are terrible matches, per se, and I can't say I've seen them on a DVD before - but they're hardly showcase bouts.
Having said that, there are some classics on here. The Eddie Guerrero-Rey Mysterio match from Hallowe'en Havoc that you've probably seen a thousand times is worth making it 1,001 views. Great Muta and Sting always put on a great show, as do Rob Van Dam and Jerry Lynn and the Hardyz/Dudleyz/Edge & Christian in their first ladder match. Plus, you've got a cool match between Trish Stratus and Lita and the ECW reunion match between Super Crazy, Tajiri and Little Guido from 2005.
One other mini-feature between matches is some of the current (or current at the time of this release) wrestlers strapping on a Go Pro-esque camera to their bodies and showing you what it's like when they do a moonsault or dive off a ladder. I can't say it's worth the price of admission or anything, but it's a neat little extra.
Overall.... I can't say I recommend this collection. The match selection is decent but it becomes repetitive after a while. This is probably best viewed in half-hour bursts here and there (or via WWE Network or Netflix, perhaps) instead of going out and buying the DVD set. Your mileage certainly may vary.
