Edge vs Chris Benoit (Steel Cage) : Raw 2004
This was supposed to be HHH vs Benoit, but HHH faked an injury and Edge just so happened to piss Benoit off so here we are. Finally, we get a cage match where the face doesn't try to escape and instead sticks around to just beat down Edge all over the ring. Benoit can escape at one point but chooses to just utilize the diving headbutt instead, again staying to torture Edge. Edge gets some pretty good offense, busting Benoit up (over the commercial break nonetheless) , and tries constantly to pussy his way out of the cage throughout the match. Edge is a fringe main eventer on this point who just always gets screwed on his way to breaking through the glass ceiling... That trend continues in this match, as Edge is just about to win, but spears Benoit through the cage door for the win. Awesome ending, and this match plays to the strength of both characters. Looking forward to more of these Raw/SD cages.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
