The match listings for the upcoming Superstar Collection Daniel Bryan and Sheamus DVDs have been released on wwedvd.com.au.  Both compilations will hit store shelves on Aug. 7.  

Daniel Bryan's one-hour DVD will include his match against Chris Jericho from NXT in 2010.  In addition, the collection will feature the following:

Daniel Bryan vs. the Miz for the United States Championship at Night of Champions 2010

The SmackDown Money in the Bank Ladder Match at Money in the Bank 2011

Daniel Bryan vs. Mark Henry SmackDown 2011

Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show vs. Mark Henry in a Steel Cage Match at Royal Rumble 2012


The Sheamus DVD will focus on big moments in his career, rather than the best quality matches.  The matches included on his collection are as follows:

Sheamus vs. John Cena in a Tables match at TLC 2009

Sheamus vs. Randy Orton vs. Edge vs. John Cena at Fatal 4 Way 2010

The 2010 King of the Ring tournament finals, Sheamus vs. John Morrison

The Royal Rumble match from Royal Rumble 2012


Daniel Bryan fans will be happy to have his first WWE match, that intriguing battle against Jericho, in their collection.  His clash with Miz, as well as the Smackdown Money in the Bank match, are both excellent viewing.

The inclusion of the other two matches are questionable, though. 

In his brief WWE career, Bryan has already complied a number of classics.

Had this DVD featured his work against the Miz and John Morrison at Hell in a Cell 2010, his Beat the Clock gem against Batista or either of the superior matches (vs. Punk at Over the Limit and vs. Sheamus at Extreme Rules) he put on this year, it would be a must-have.

As it stands, Bryan fans will enjoy this set, but likely purchase a bigger collection later on as well.    

The Sheamus DVD is less appealing. 

From a career importance standpoint, it makes sense to include the Royal Rumble match and his first WWE championship win, but there are far more entertaining matches they could have chosen.

His ladder match with John Morrison from TLC 2010 comes to mind first. 

Big Sheamus fans will love reliving his Rumble win as well as re-watching his excellent work at King of the Ring and Fatal 4 Way. 

At around $10 in the US, both DVDs are good buys despite not featuring the absolute best from either wrestler's resume.  Of the two, the Bryan DVD is the better overall value due to the quality of the matches.
