This is an interesting situation
Mysterio in WWE can't hold a candle to Benoit
But Mysterio in WCW was outstanding and above Benoit at times.
But ima give it to Benoit for being consistently awesome.
Chris Beniot and it's not even close. I do admit that Rey is good in the ring, but Beniot is way out of his league. In terms of technicality, in ring psychology, work rate and the ability to tell a story, Beniot hands down takes the cake.
Honestly, both men are/were so gifted in the ring, and it makes it is a tough choice to make. However, Chris Benoit to me, was the overall better wrestler. He could do anything in the ring - literally anything. He blended so many different styles together and was such a perfectionist in all aspects that I think he is almost in a class all by himself...maybe accompanied by Angle, Hart and Michaels.
Mysterio, while an incredible in-ring performer, really has only excelled in the luchador/WWE luchador style. It is not his fault that this is the style that his heritage has put infront of him, but at the same time it can not be over looked that it has somewhat limited his overall work. Benoit could mat wrestle, brawl, submission wrestle or high fly. Mysterio is really only known for his high flying ability.
