If I can't find the remaining matches, I may just be a lazy shit and do the Ziggler/Bryan series if nobody has already called dibs on it. I remember thinking their Bragging Rights match was a classic at the time. Always wondered if it held up.
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.

If you want to recover from that, we got the footage!
