Mr Kennedy Vs Chris Benoit - WWE Smackdown January 5th 2007

The final Beat The Clock challenge match for this week (continues over to the next show), and Booker still has the time to beat. These two guys had a great match on SD in 06 the week after Benoit returned, where Benoit beat Kennedy for the US title that he still has here.

Doesn't come close to their SD 06 match, but for the time they get (around 4 minutes) its one hell of a fucking fight. Both guys know the time they have to beat and what is at stake, and they just go full throttle with beating the living shit out of each other. Nothing fancy for the most part, just stiff shots and lots of countering.

I like how they build up to the finish throughout the match, with Kennedy whipping Benoit into the corner ribs and stomach first, just like Bret Hart used to do. Kennedy gets a 2 count early on, then goes back to it again and this time Benoit has to reach for the ropes to stay in the match, so Kennedy takes it a step further and removes the turnbuckle pad, and after almost tapping to the Crossface, Kennedy takes advantage of the situation he set up, and gets the win from it.

Its amazing what they managed to fit into the short amount of time they get, but hey, this is Chris Benoit we are talking about, and hell, given on what I saw from Kennedy in 2006, he deserves a lot of praise too for continuing to be great here.

Mr Kennedy Vs Chris Benoit - WWE Smackdown January 12th 2007

A rematch from last week, only this time there is no time limit!

The title isn't on the line here (US), and it isn't a Beat The Clock match either. Its just Benoit's way to gain revenge for the cheap loss he suffered last week. I like that. They don't need to throw all these stipulations at the match to make it interesting or to give Benoit a reason to take the fight to Kennedy, they just need to play up on Benoit's character.

Benoit is all over Kennedy for the first half of this match, even after it seems like Kennedy creates an opening for himself. Kennedy keeps trying to take down Benoit, but Benoit's thirst for revenge is too strong.

Unfortunately for Benoit, Chavo comes out to bore him with his pure dullness, and Kennedy is able to avoid it long enough to finally take advantage of the Crippler. We get some of the same stiffness and back and forth fighting in the match between these two that we saw the week before, only this time Kennedy can take his time and wear Benoit down as there is no time limit.

Loved the abdominal stretch spot from Kennedy, with him cheating and using the ropes for leverage, then the referee catching him. The ref counts to 5, Kennedy lets go but keeps the hold locked in, forcing the ref to count to 5 again, allowing Kennedy to get some extra time in the hold, causing more damage to Benoit. Not sure if I have seen anyone actually do that before tbh.

Kennedy fighting his way out of a Sharpshooter attempt is really great too. Such a shame that Kennedy really went downhill around 2008 and now completely sucks in TNA, because the guy was legit awesome for like, a 2 year period. Kinda wish he had managed to win the world title at some point in 07, would have loved some lengthy PPV matches with this guy as the champion.

We go into a really great finishing stretch, but your not average full throttle MOVES~! one, instead both men are showing signs of exhaustion and are doing their best to throw out their biggest moves at each other while selling the affects of the match. In the end though, Chavo bores Benoit out of the win when he gets on the apron.

Really awesome stuff here. They have almost 20 minutes, and do wonders with the time. Not quite sure if it is better than their 06 match, but its definitely up there in terms of ratings anyway.

Is there someone Benoit didnt get a classic out of? I mean seriously, the real victims when he killed his wife and son were the people who enjoy great wrestling.

Ummm... don't recall him having a great match with Big Show... though I do hear good things about their match on SD in either very late 02/early 03 for a title shot at the RR.

He and Undertaker also never had a great match, just 3 (I think) fun, short matches on TV/UK PPV (which might as well have been TV lol).

Son of a bitch was incredible. I loved his matches even before I became a smark.

Me too. Totally wanted him to be champion in 2000 when he was facing The Rock (though to be fair I would have rooted for David Arquette against The Rock ) too. Its funny when I look back at some of the wrestlers and matches that I loved before I became a smark, since most casual fans these days would probably hate some of that shit if it was on now .

Benoit just had so much fucking ability. The match that probably stands out most in my head was a TV match against Lesnar on 2003 Smackdown.

I'd take a good chunk of Benoit's SD 06 run over that Lesnar match tbh, and I loved that Lesnar match. Still wish they had gotten a PPV match... stupid fucking Lesnar leaving and going to MMA and becoming the biggest box office draw in the world... .

Also wish Benoit had gotten a PPV match with Undertaker in either 06 or 07 (before all that shit). 20-30 minutes of those two could have been epic.
