WWE: Best Pay-per-View Matches 2009-2010(2009-2010)
The pinnacle for every sports entertainer is to appear on pay-per-view, and once there, they desire to steal the show-put on the best match. For the first time ever on home video, the WWE Universe can enjoy the best PPV matches in a one-year span in one home video collection. The stars of Raw, SmackDown, and ECW present the greatest bouts of the year, from longtime PPV standards WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble, as well as newly themed events, including Breaking Point, Hell in a Cell, Bragging Rights, TLC, and Elimination Chamber.

WWE: Best Pay-per-View Matches 2009-2010 Blu-ray Review
Now you don't have to pay so much to view.
Reviewed by Martin Liebman, December 23, 2012
The WWE's bread-and-butter is served during each and every Monday and Friday night telecast. Yet if RAW and SmackDown are the staples, the WWE's Pay-Per-View matches are the elegant feasts, the finest choice cuts reserved for special nights of high prices but exceptional quality, far superior in presentation to be sure and far more often than not much more satisfying than the basic spread offered up on a bi-weekly basis. Anyone hungry now? Hungry from some wrasslin'? For Best Pay-per-View Matches 2009-2010, the WWE has selected, no surprise, what it considered the best of the best of its Sunday night pay matches, a veritable smorgasbord of high-end delights stretching from the calendar year (or so) of April 2009 through March 2010. There are plenty of big name stars and lots of highly entertaining matches. Rey Mysterio puts his mask on the line and a classic bout that pitted a long and storied streak against a longer and perhaps even more storied career defines the year that was. Oh yeah, this is the modern WWE at its best.
This is a nuts-and-bolts basic compilation program that begins with April 2009's Backlash and ends with WrestleMania XXVI in March 2010. The program offers audiences 15 total matches (including one ladies match), a pretty well-rounded cross-section for what basically amounts to eleven months worth of high-dollar sports entertainment. Sure, the complete collection of every Pay-Per-View event would be nice -- wouldn't it be great to see each and every one of them on Blu-ray a month or so after the fact -- but for fans who simply want a recap of the year's best, this is it, and it costs around half of what just one of the twelve events featured would have cost on the night of its airing. That's a bargain. Better, there's very little fluff; what's here is made up of only a few brief Michael Cole and Matt Striker interludes. This is nonstop wrestling entertainment at its best, delivered in high definition across two discs for hours upon hours of nearly uninterrupted WWE greatness. Grab a few beers, snag a bag of chips, plop into the recliner, and enjoy these fantastic matches all over again or for the first time.

WWE: Best Pay-per-View Matches 2009-2010 Blu-ray, Video Quality
Best Pay-per-View Matches 2009-2010 features a rather underwhelming Blu-ray presentation. The 1.78:1 material passes muster as a baseline acceptable, watchable image, but it's not as precise as the newer WWE material. The image is almost helplessly blocky and seems held together by just a drop of digital glue. The picture appears almost constantly unnaturally sharp and rough. Details suffice -- close-ups of faces are fine and graphics are mostly sharp if not a bit jagged around the edges -- but aren't rich or complex. Skin textures often look rather smooth, too, and the image is painfully flat. Colors are adequately vibrant, but the palette isn't naturally rich and lifelike like viewers might be accustomed to seeing on the newest WWE releases. Black levels are rather poor and noisy. Certainly, this isn't a videophile's transfer, but casual viewers more interested in the wrestling action than the exactness of the presentation should be able to look beyond the shortcomings and enjoy the basics.
WWE: Best Pay-per-View Matches 2009-2010 Blu-ray, Audio Quality
Best Pay-per-View Matches 2009-2010 features a largely satisfying Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. As most WWE-on-Blu-ray fans know, this is the norm for these releases, and most know what exactly what to expect. This one doesn't deviate from that norm. The announcer interludes aren't the pinnacle of dialogue clarity; there's a slight shallowness to such moments, but the delivery is adequately clear nonetheless. Music largely hovers around the front. There's more energy in the manufactured pre-match clips than there is during wrestler entrances or in-ring action. During matches, crowd reactions aren't so pronounced and spaced so as to place the listener in the audience; they're fairly front-end heavy but basically effective. In-ring dialogue and ringside commentary both are delivered as crisply and naturally as can be expected of a lossy soundtrack. Some of the heavy crashes, hits, and thuds deliver adequate heft. All in all, a fair track given the material.

WWE: Best Pay-per-View Matches 2009-2010 Blu-ray, Overall Score and Recommendation
This one's pretty simple. "WWE." "Pay-Per-View." "Best-of." This is a classy, nearly no-frills release that delivers as promised, nothing more and certainly nothing less. It offers nearly a year's worth of expensive pay matches for the price that's probably 1/25 or less of what all of the events together would have cost "live." Sure it's not everything, but for the casual WWE fan who just wants to pop in a few good matches on a lonely afternoon or for the hardcore enthusiast who has to have them all, this is a must-own set. WWE's high definition release features the usual good picture and sound qualities. A few bonuses are included. Recommended.
