All this talk of it makes me wanna review their little series of matches at some point. Off the top of my head, I can think of these matches:
- Two weeks before Backlash for the #1 contender spot against Lesnar
- The week before Judgment Day
- Some time after JD, Rhyno hits Benoit by accident with the steel chain, costing him the match
- #1 contender match for Lesnar's championship in December
- The infamous 2007 one... ugh.
What's even more stupid about their last match is the fact Cena used Benoit to make a statement to HBK for their WM23 match as if HBK is a tougher opponent than Benoit. Kayfabe, it makes no sense since Benoit made HBK tap out back in 04.
Why would anyone ever mention Cena/Benoit and benoit tapping out ever? That's just a no-no. I still can't believe they did that
If you want to recover from that, we got the footage!
