Released: September 2 2013

Randy Orton's three-disc Evolution Of A Predator (released around a year before this low-cost compilation in the States) covered most of his biggest matches to date, meaning that the match choices on this Superstar Collection are of the less-memorable variety.

That being said, his battle with Triple H at The Bash 2009 (under Three Stages Of Hell rules) and his scrap with both HHH and Cena a month later at Night Of Champions 2009 are both worth watching, although they came at a time when Orton's feuds with both men had entered overkill (little did we know that we'd get four more PPV matches between Orton and Cena in 2009 alone).

Orton vs. Ted DiBiase from a March 2010 edition of Raw is an odd inclusion, since it's not a particularly strong outing (their previous meeting around eight months earlier was far better). Finally, we revisit the great Orton-Christian rivalry from 2011 which had the World Heavyweight Title at stake, in this case their very good battle at Capitol Punishment.

Since Orton has only had one proper DVD release, this compilation is a nice little profile of The Viper. The action is good enough on the whole to warrant a purchase if you're looking for a way to spend that last fiver.

Overall Rating: 6.5/10 - Okay
