Rock/Benoit the most underrated feud of the AE?

I am currently on the year 2000. In July. Just watched the Fully Loaded ppv. That card was fully loaded haha. Jericho/HHH Last man standing match stole the show. But Rock Benoit is just so good. The way they booked Rock to put a beatdown on Chris. Was one of Rocks most defining moments. He was always a showman. But this showed he can be dangerous. These two had such great in ring chemistry. The Psychology is brilliant. This feud does not get talked about as much as say Rock HHH. But it is definately one of the feuds of the AE.

It is underrated I remember despising Benoit when he had his brief feud with Rock, I felt Benoit was a whole new threat compared to HHH.

Their Fully Loaded match was one of my favorite matches of 2000. I loved Rock but wanted Benoit to win so bad.

I agree 100%! Easily one of the most underrated feuds and matches from 2000! It’s amazing that such a brief feud, with the right booking and creative can turn out so well, hmmmm?

Benoit was a great heel during this run and putting him with Shane made him even more unlikable, you were just desperate to see him get his ass kicked! I remember the video package before the match was also great when Benoit vowed to make The Rock squeal! I actually feared for The Rock in this match which is great storytelling from all involved!

Him putting the Crossface on Earl Hebner was another highlight as it really emphasised how cruel and sadistic Benoit was.

The match was also very good with great chemistry between both guys and they told a great story!

One could argue Rock vs Jericho rival this.

It was really good. Such a great contrast of styles to. I remember seeing and interview with Benoit where he talked about how he'd always respected/admired Rock's charisma and ability to cut promos/get the crowd going. But he wanted to see how well Rock could go in the ring as well, and he came away from their match impressed with Rock's abilities there to.

It was fun when Kane. Undertaker and Rock beat down the crafty Benoit at Unforgiven too.

Is that the one where The Rock tapped out to Benoit on RAW, LOL.
