The History of the WWE Championship

Recently released on DVD is this 3-disc set that was intended to provide a sense of history to current WWE fans, as well as cash in on the very marketable retro market for fans that don't necessarily enjoy the current WWE product. I say intended because, well, it's WWE so there has to be an agenda behind it. It's not an unbiased chronicle of the actual history of this 40-year-old championship, but a selected history. The program is unfortunately hosted by the rapidly deteriorating Jim Ross, and the matches shown throughout the discs were voted on by fans that visited WWE.com, which accounts for some of the decidedly odd choices. On to the review!
