Running Time: 89 Minutes

Released: February 10 2014

The final Superstar Collection release focused on Daniel Bryan. This compilation on Bryan kicks off with his exciting NXT debut against Chris Jericho. We see The Miz in his greatest ever match opposite Bryan with the us title at stake from Night Of Champions 2010, before his Money In The Bank Ladder match triumph from MITB 2011. After a showdown where he challenges Mark Henry for the World Heavyweight Title, both end up in a steel cage at Royal Rumble 2012, this time alongside Big Show and this time with Bryan defending the crown to close the DVD (oddly, Bryan's World Title win over Show from TLC 2011 via a MITB cash-in isn't here).

Based on match quality, this is the best of the four Superstar Collections. That being said, the best matches have been released on previous compilations, and the other bouts aren't quite good enough to justify a purchase on their own.

However, all four SC DVDs are at a budget price and are good to watch without having to overthink storylines, expect major spots or reflect upon drawn-out feuds. At that cost, they are designed to be mini-profiles, and so all are worth a gander. Hopefully, we'll get a UK release of the other Superstar Collections (amongst them the spotlights on Shawn Michaels, Kofi Kingston and Zack Ryder), but for now any of these will be a nice way to fill time on your next Bank Holiday Monday.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10 - Good
