I desperately wanted this DVD as a Christmas gift back in 2010, and when I didn't get it that morning, I was pretty disappointed. However, a relative of mine ended up giving it to me as a gift when we went over to their house later that day, so that was a pleasant surprise. I watched the documentary in the first few days of the new year (2011) and absolutely loved it. Along with the "CM Punk - Best in the World" DVD that came out two years later, this was one of the best wrestling documentaries I've ever seen.
If I recall correctly, this movie was released on DVD around the time that Chris Jericho's second stint in WWE was coming to an end, so the timing couldn't have been better. The documentary ranges from his early beginnings to his WrestleMania match with Edge in 2010. He also takes you behind the scenes as to what he was doing during his time off from wrestling from 2005 to 2007. The documentary was very well done and the matches on the second and third discs were also a lot of fun to watch.
The matches features some of his earliest bouts against Lance Storm when he was first starting his career, the match where he became the inaugural WWE Undisputed Champion, his classic match against Shawn Michaels at No Mercy 2008 and much more. Since getting the DVD three years ago, I believe I've watched it at least three to four times. As a fan of Y2J and of everything he does, I was fascinated by the stories he had to tell and all the obstacles he had to overcome on his way to the top of WWE. Obviously, I strongly suggest watching this awesome three disc set if you haven't done so already. Jericho may be taking another hiatus from wrestling at the moment, but you can still relive his illustrious career by purchasing this fantastic DVD and learning everything you need to know about the nine-time Intercontinental Champion.
Should you see this movie? Yes.
