It oddly starts towards the end of January–anyways. This is a bit of a step up from last year’s Best of Blu-ray for 2011. But this one also has its flaws. For one, this Blu-ray has NO Chris Jericho matches not even one or two segments from his feud with Punk. It does however feature the segment from when he finally talks before the Royal Rumble as well as the Punk vs Bryan match he interferes in. I feel like this Blu-ray doesn’t do a good enough job at pointing out moments from some of this year’s biggest feuds with the exception of Cena/Rock. There’s also no mention whatsoever of the Triple H/Undertaker. No mention of Antonio Cesaro and barely any mention of WWE’s 2012 diva, AJ. However this Blu-ray does succeed in supplying many moments of WWE Champion, CM Punk as well as Kane and Daniel Bryan.

You should buy this Blu-ray anyway just to have moments of Raw and Smackdown from 2012 to relive. However, I think that WWE should go back to making separate Blu-ray for Raw and Smackdown, just so each show and superstar get matches/segments they deserve to have recognized.

Final Thoughts

There were some matches here that I’m absolutely agree with are the best matches from each PPV in 2012 but some of the selections I would definitely question but you can’t win them all as this is a collection for those who those who have enjoyed WWE this year but obviously are unable to watch/collect most of the PPV’s.
