"The DVD features a few major matches between The Rock and major names from 1999 to January 2000. You won't find his matches with Steve Austin on here but you will see how the rivalry between him and Triple H starting to gain some steam.You get to see a few backstage views of The Rock and how his fans really idolize him. Of course, the pie references are interesting as well. This DVD is jam packed full of The Rock and if you are a Rock fan, this DVD will be an awesome purchase because not only do you get 143 minutes of the electrifying wrestler, you get these special features such as his memorable verbal assaults including the pie references. Not sure if they showed those on television before.The interviews from the announcers to the wrestlers help the audience gain some insight on the wrestler and if you buy the VHS, you will be missing out on these awesome special features. The sound and video is really good and the special features included are pretty fun to watch. A definite DVD must-see for WWF and The Rock fans."

"The first thing that should be known about this particular DVD is that it is not about The Rock's wrestling, nor does it show any of his matches in its entirety. Instead, the 143 minutes of footage is devoted solely to the entertainment aspect of The Rock's character.
From The Rock's interviews, to his catchphrases and feuds with characters like The Undertaker, Triple H, Al Snow, Mankind, and The Big Show, and some clips of him outside of wrestling, such as throwing the opening pitch at a Chicago Cub's game, signing copies of his book "The Rock Says...", or getting a haircut.
This DVD falls somewhere among the likes of Mick Foley's "Hard Knocks and Cheap Pops" DVD, minus the bonus matches. It's filled with some of the most memorable Rock moments during 1999 and parts of early 2000, most having to do with his interviews, catchphrases, and trash talking his opponents. It's not wrestling, but it's pure entertainment, and just like Mick Foley's DVD, it's genuinely hilarious."
Great compilation, especially on the promos

"In truth, the Rock's continuing story entitled "The People's Champ" is a little light on his matches. It matters little, as most of The Rock's best moments occur not in the ring (where he has also had several classic match-ups, particularly showcased here with Triple H and the Big Show), but on the microphone.
The Rock simply has a knack for coming up with these catchy phrases. He literally has dozens of them - he is kind of like Johnny Cash in that he can make up a phrase on Monday and have the whole crowd repeating it on Thursday. All of those classic phrases and promos are highlighted on this DVD. And did I mention that the Rock 'N Sock Connection, one of the best and most humurous angles in WWF history, is given significant screen time?
The DVD extras are also well-done for the time this DVD was released. A decent slide show, and yet ANOTHER look at promos is featured.
A must-have for WWF fans, and worth consideration to people who hate the sport."
