Default Jericho vs Benoit - Classic Feud

Was just thinking about some of my favourite ever feuds, this one came to mind pretty much instantly. Most of the matches these two had together were amazing.
To refresh your memory, here are some of the best:

Ladder Match - Royal Rumble 01

Submission Match - Judgment Day 00
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5h...2#.UUO1dluAskc

2 Out Of 3 Falls - Summerslam 00
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6k...2#.UUO2S1uAskc

Just classics!

And here's a bonus
Fall Brawl 96

Agreed, their 2000-01 IC title feud is one of my all time favorites. I think their Rumble '01 Ladder Match is my favorite match between the two.

Great feud. I don't think they ever had a 'bad' match together. I agree with Charlie Bronson, the ladder match at Royal Rumble 2001 is fantastic.

Yeah i'd definitely rank the ladder match as the peak of the feud, at that point they just seemed so comfortable working with each other. They always had great chemistry, even in that match at the 96 Fall Brawl, they just worked together so well. Just a shame we can't see the match they would put on today, definitely would've been deserving of a Wrestlemania spot.

The 01 ladder match was unbelievable. I remember staying up late for that Rumble and thinking to myself "these two normally have good matches, but a ladder match?" - as this was the era of The Hardyz, Dudleyz and E&C doing all those crazy ladder spots. I just didn't think it was the best match type for these two... but wow.

The brutality of that match can be pretty much defined by the suicide dive chair shot. I feel guilty taking pleasure in that now knowing how fucked up Benoit's head got though...

Yeah it was a hell of a spot but in hindsight it does kind of make me cringe to see that. It kind of makes me wish someone would've just taken him aside and told him to not take big risks with his health like that, but then again hindsight is a wonderful thing.

This feud traces back to Super J Cup 95'. Two guys who crossed paths continuously and had a pact to put it all on the line in order to get the match over.

2001 Royal Rumble Ladder match and 2000 SummerSlam 2 out of 3 Falls match were one of my favorite matches ever. Those guys had a great feud. One of the most overlooked, because of what was going on in the main event back then. Kurt Angle-Triple H feud overshadowed them.

Default Re: Jericho vs Benoit - Classic Feud

Their 2 out of 3 falls and ladder matches are just classics. Haven't seen their WCW work together but from the rest of their 2000 matches, the WM16 three way is very good, Backlash I don't remember anything other than the illogical finish and Judgment Day was good.

They also had two decent matches on Raw in early 2005. The submission match from Japan 7/2/05 is very good specially.
