Default Chris Benoit's standing ovation

Can we please leave June 2007 out of this?

----------------------------------------------

Rumble 03

Moving on:


Re-watching Benoit-Angle and seeing Boston give Chris his rightful praise...I think is quite possibly one of the most "Feel Good" moments of all time.

Everyone talks about the Mania 20 moment with Eddie and rightfully so but I just watched Benoit's ovation again and for a guy without mic skills and "wwe marketing" to get that kind of ovation is a testament to his skill and the match that took place.

I could re-watch this over and over and feel it's an underrated moment in wrestling history.

The fact that he got the title in 2004 instead of earlier in his career, like he deserved, is a shame. The man worked his ass off to get where he got to be in the business and he deserved everything he earned.

As much as I would love to leave June 2007 out of this, unfortunately these boards are filled with assholes. Someone's gonna come along eventually.

I remember the moment you're talking about, and I agree that it was very special. Benoit's had a lot of great moments in his career, and I definitely miss the guy. One of the most inspirational technical wrestlers of all time.

He did, but he just walked out of WCW after they gave it to him.

The fact that he dragged a good match out of Kane is a testament to how great he was. God I miss watching him.

You're implying that Kane isn't a good wrestler. Which would be a poor assessment to make.
