Benoit List as of May 2007

This is a match list for every Benoit match that you can possably see. It's not a matchlist of every single match he's ever wrestled but rather every match I know of that at one time or another has existed on video tape.     There are going to be mistakes and there are no doubt going to be omissions. If someone wants to correct something feel free to do so and if someone knows about the existence of more matches feel free to speak up. The search for new Benoit matches never ends.   Also, If you have any questions or want to comment about any of the matches go right on ahead.     There are about 7 or 8 Benoit matches that I've heard of but don't know enough about their existence so I didn't put them down. I'm also not familiar with the complete run of New Japan Classics so of course not everything's going to be complete but the list will still be fairly complete.   Stampede dates are in most cases the "arena" dates and not the televison dates. Their matches were shown on more than one channel and as a result you can find different amounts of footage for each match. TSN is the channel that showed the most footage and is the channel Stampede should be watched from   New Japan dates tend to be the arena dates.   WCW matches tend to be the television dates.   ECW matches tend to be the television dates.     Spolers are in this thread because I have made brief comments about some of the matches so beware.   Part 1       Benoit/Patterson vs Moffat/Hammer 11/29/85   Benoit/Patterson vs Assasin/Terminator 12/6/85   Benoit/Cobra vs Moffat/Assasin   Benoit in Battle Royal 12/27/85   Benoit/Bad News Allan vs Singh/Brown 1/3/86   Benoit vs Mephisto JIP Very Early 1986 -- Mephisto is Kawada. Good match.   Benoit/Basserb vs Ron Starr/Honkey Tonk Man 2/28/86 Very good. Honkey uses some shoot style like submissions!!   Benoit/Basserb vs Disalvo Handicap Match 2/14/86   Benoit vs Gama 1/3/86   Benoit/Richie vs Gama/Singh 12/27/85   Benoit/K.Hart vs Honkeytonkman/Cuban Assasin 5/9/86   Benoit/K.Hart vs Scott/Foley 5/16/86   Benoit/Keith Hart vs Kerry Brown & Duke Myres 5/30/86   Benoit/Keith Hart vs Kerry Brown & Duke Myres 6/6/86   Benoit vs Cuban Assasin 12/26/86   Benoit/Hashimoto vs. Sano & Goto 2/5/87   Benoit vs Viet Cong Express #1 3/27/87 Lots of fun. Would look right in place in New Japan.   Benoit/Jeff Wheeler vs Kerry Brown/Duke Myers 4/3/87   Benoit/Hashimoto vs. Chono & Goto 5/14/87   Benoit vs Masa Chono 5/25/87   Benoit vs Funaki 6/9/87   Benoit vs Wellington Stampede 8/14/87   Benoit vs Gama 8/21/87 Benoit backdrops Gama over the top rope   Benoit vs Gama 8/28/97 No DQ title match   Benoit vs Gama 9/4/87 Lumberjack match,   Benoit/Pillman/B.Hart vs Gama/Zodiac/Jason 9/11/87   Benoit/Pillman/B.Hart vs Singh/Zodiac/Jason 9/18/87   Benoit vs M. Singh 9/25/87 KC Houston interferss   Benoit/Wellington vs M. Singh/Jerry Morrow 10/2/87   Benoit/Johnny Smith vs Viet Cong #2/Goldie Rogers 10/9/87   Benoit vs Zodiac 10/16/87   Benoit/Owen vs Jason/Zodiac 10/23/87 -- One of Benoit's top matches in Stampede   Benoit vs Jason 10/30/87   Did some Japan here   Benoit vs Takada!! 11/16/87   Benoit/Holiday vs Singh/Portz 12/25/87   Benoit vs Gama 1/1/88 -- Non title   Benoit vs Gama 1/8/88 -- TItle match   Benoit vs Gama 1/15/88 -- Gama wins by "botched" German   Benoit/Jason vs M. Singh/Rogers 1/22/88   Benoit vs Rip Rogers 1/29/88   Benoit vs Rip Rogers 2/5/88 Smith interferes   Benoit/Smith vs Rip/Brown 2/12/88   Benoit/Smith vs Rip/Brown 2/19/88 Smith "injures" leg   Benoit/Smith vs Rip/Brown 2/26/88 Smith turns   Benoit vs Morrow 3/4/88   Benoit vs Gama 3/11/88   Benoit vs Gama 3/18/88 Title win!   Benoit vs Gama 3/25/88   Benoit vs Assasin 4/1/88   Benoit vs Goldie Rogers 4/8/88   Benoit vs Yang Chung 4/15/88   Benoit vs Yang Chung 4/22/88 -- The Benoit vs Yang Chung matches are very good and even more fun   Benoit vs Rogers 4/29/88 Benoit uses the sunset flip off of top rope   Benoit/Thatcher vs Commandoes 5/6/88   Benoit/Wellington vs Commandoes 5/13/88   Benoit vs Kenny Johnson 5/20/88   Benoit vs Smith 5/27/88 -- Their first match with an ending similar to Benoit vs Jericho from Summerslam   Benoit vs Smith 6/3/88 -- Maybe their best match together. Superb heel domination period by Smith in this. There are two terrific knee shots to the stomach off of an Irish whip here which are the best I've ever seen for that manuever.   Benoit vs Smith 6/10/88 -- M. Singh interferes   Benoit vs Smith English Rounds 6/17/88 --   Benoit vs Smith English Rounds 6/24/88 -- Weasel interference. Arguably their best match. The ending is truly memoarable.   "did not" wrestle 7/2/88   "did not" wrestle 7/9/88   Benoit vs Smith 7/16/88 -- Same match that is on the New Japan Calgary DVD   Benoit vs Gama 7/22/88 Good match   Benoit/Wellington vs Smith/Gama 7/30/88   Benoit/Hart/Pillman vs Smith/Gama/Singh 8/5/88   Benoit vs Assasin 8/12/88   Benoit/Idol vs Commandoes 8/19/88 -- The Benoit Idol vs Commadnoes series is perhaps the highlight of Benoit's stay in Stampede. The wrestling, the Benoit/Idol storyline and the interviews are so much fun. The Commandoes are Jerry Morrow and the "Canadian" Cuban Assasin   Benoit/Idol vs Commandoes 8/25/88 -- Idol is a very good wrestler.   Benoit/Idol vs Commandoes 9/2/88   Benoit/Idol vs Commandoes 9/9/88   Benoit/Idol vs Commandoes Texas Tornado match 9/16/88   Benoit vs Assasin 9/23/88   9/30/88 -- Apparantly The show of older bouts with Dynamite Kid, Bret and Davey   Benoit/Idol vs Commandoes 10/7/88   Benoit/Idol vs Akam/Gama 10/14/88   Benoit/Idol vs Rip/Goldie 10/21/88   Benoit/Idol vs Commandoes 10/28/88   Benoit vs Idol 11/4/88   Benoit/Wellington/Hart vs Smith/Commandoes 11/11/88 -- A ring a ding dong dandy!   Benoit/B.Hart vs Commandoes 11/18/88   Benoit/B.Hart vs Commandoes 11/25/88 No DQ match   Benoit vs Wellington 12/2/88   Benoit vs Rip Rogers 12/9/88   Benoit vs V. Singh 12/16/88 -- Singh is Gary Albright   Battle Royal Benoit/Johnny Smith/Davey Boy/Dynamite Kid and M. Singh are among the participants 12/23/88   Benoit vs Smith 12/30/88 -- JIP which is too bad because the beginnings of the Benoit and Smith matches are always so fun to watch. You can tell Benoit and Johnny Smith were really feeling it that night and the result is a superb match.   Benoit vs Smith 1/6/89 JIP -- One of the Alberta channels has an awesome earlier exchange that TSN doesn't show. However, TSN still shows more footage.   Benoit vs Smith 1/13/89 -- English Death match Only very brief highlights and footage of this are shown because it got too brutal. Highlights are different depending on what channel you watch. This looked very promising.   Benoit vs Gama 1/20/89 -- Gama uses knuckledusters   Benoit vs Gama 1/27/89   Benoit vs Gama 2/3/89 nice pinning sequences at end. You can tell that Benoit was pumped that Dynamite was back in the territory.   Benoit/Wellington vs Smith/Gama 2/10/89   Benoit/Wellington vs Gama/Goldie 2/17/89   Benoit vs Kim Shau 2/24/89   Benoit vs Larry Cameron 3/3/89 Bulldog Bob interferes, Afterwards Dynamite almost does a retirement speech and gives his boots to Ed Whalen to give to Benoit. Dynamite calls Benoit the wrester of the 90s.   Benoit/Davey/Pillman/Richie vs M.Singh/Gama/Albright/Cameron 3/10/89 Big Skip   Benoit vs Goldie Rogers 3/17/89   Benoit/Wellington vs Singhs 3/24/89   Benoit/Wellington vs Singhs Bulldog Bob Brown is reff 3/31/89   Benoit vs Bulldog Bob Brown 4/7/89; may not have been the only match that night   ????   ????   Benoit/Wellington vs Smith/Hara 4/28/89   Benoit/Wellington vs Commandoes 5/5/89   Benoit vs Cameron 5/12/89 Ron Starr Interferes   Benoit vs Cameron 5/19/89 Starr interferes   Benoit/Wellington vs Cameron/Angel of Death 5/26/89   Benoit/Wellington vs Cameron/Angel of Death 6/2/89 -- Tv Date is 6/19/89   Benoit/Wellington vs Bulldog Bob/Kerry Brown 6/9/89   Benoit vs Smith 6/16/89 -- Tv Date is 7/3/89   ????? This might be Benoit vs Kerry Brown 6/23/89 or Benoit/Davey/Rice vs Cameron/Browns 6/23/89 Apparantly Benoit wrestled twice that day   Benoit/Johnson vs Dynamite Kid/Smith 6/30/89 Dynamite bumps like a freak for Benoit despite being crippled in their short exchange including taking a hit on to the cement. I have only seen the short version of this so I'm not sure what Benoit and Dynamite did earlier on in the match. I suspect there's a longer version of this on TSN. Edit -- And indeed there is!   Benoit vs Kerry Brown 7/7/89   Benoit vs Cameron 7/14/89   ?????

Observations on what I've been watching

I've been watching a Ted DiBiase compilation, covering his time in WWE, and the one thing that stuck out for me is that it became clear how Ted managed to wear his neck out to the point he suffered the herniated disc in 1993 that ended his career. In all of his matches with Randy Savage, when Savage would snap his throat across the top rope, Ted would take the resulting bump by falling backwards and then arching up using his shoulders and forcing himself to roll backwards, with all the weight going on his neck. He'd do that at least once or twice a match with Savage, and considering the run they had he had to be doing that an awful lot in 1988. And it's not just in that spot in the Savage matches that Ted takes the bump; whenever he goes for his missed reverse elbow off the second rope, where he faces away from ring, he takes that same bump when he lands. It doesn't look like a dangerous bump, and it looks very ordinary today, but watching those matches and knowing that Ted was doing that night after night for six years, and what the end result was, it makes you wince a little every time he takes that bump.   I know wrestlers gain career ending injuries from all sorts of bumps, some more crazier than others, but this was an ordinary looking bump that Ted did almost every night of the year. It makes it a little different, the bump being an ordinary one that he took nightly, rather than a crazy one he did once in his life.

Best Wrestling Matches I've Seen

Stolen completely from Loss. I like putting together lists, so I'm going to do one of the top wrestling matches by year, according to me. I left out matches that were significantly edited. I'll post additions at the bottom and will occasionally change or remove the status of a match. Comments appreciated, because I'd love to re-watch some of these, but generally don't have the motivation to do so without a good reason (too many unwatched matches kicking around).   1970 Antonio Inoki vs Dory Funk Jr. (9/2/70, ***3/4)   1973 The Destroyer vs Mil Mascaras (10/9/73, ****1/4)   1974 Mil Mascaras vs The Destroyer (7/25/74, ****1/2)   1976 Jumbo Tsuruta vs Terry Funk (6/11/76, ****1/2) Jumbo Tsuruta vs Jack Brisco (8/28/76, 2/3 Falls, ****) Jumbo Tsuruta vs Giant Baba (5/1/76, ****)   1977 Jerry Lawler vs Bill Dundee (8/29/77, ***3/4) Jumbo Tsuruta vs Harley Race (6/11/77, 2/3 Falls, ***1/2)   1980 Dynamite Kid vs. Tatsumi Fujinami (2/5/80, ****) Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Dick Slater (5/1/80, ****) Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Dick Murdoch (2/23/80, ***1/2) Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Dick Murdoch (3/5/80, ***1/2)   1981 Bruiser Brody & Jimmy Snuka vs. Terry Funk & Dory Funk Jr. (12/13/81, ****1/4) Bob Backlund vs. Sgt.

Cuban Assassian/Phil Lafleur vs Super Tiger/Osamu Kido (10/22/84 UWF) 70. Carlos Plata/El Doberman vs Mighty Inoue/Mach Hayato (11/1/80 IWE) 71. Super Tiger vs Osamu Kido (8/29/85 UWF) 72. Atsushi Onita/Dick Murdoch vs Masanobu Kurisu/Jos LeDuc (12/4/89 FMW) 73. Jimmy Backlund vs Mitsuteru Tokuda (10/6/89 FMW) 74. Killer Khan vs Stan Hansen (??/??/86 JPW) 75. Pete Roberts/Akira Maeda vs Keith Hayward/Osamu Kido (12/5/84 UWF)     Rusher Kimura vs Alexis Smirnoff (11/22/80 IWE) - I doubt this will be a popular pick, but I liked it. There was a lot of very, very basic and deliberate matwork, but it wasn't inactive matwork . Sometimes one hold would be held for 2 or 3 minutes at a time, but both guys would constantly try to fight their way out of those holds, and eventually, it turned into a solid and focused leg attack from Smirnoff. I'll take basic and deliberate combined with active and focused any day.   Super Tiger vs Akira Maeda (9/11/84 UWF) - I loved the back and forth in this match. Great counters and great momentum swings made this really dramatic for me.   Masami Soronaka vs Scott McGhee (12/5/84 UWF) - This was perhaps the most realistic match on the set so far. A lot of chain/amateur wrestling going on here, with both guys working for holds, and moving along in a realistic and smooth way. For how great of an amateur Kurt Angle was, these two seem to have a better grasp of how to translate that style into the pros.   Pete Roberts/Akira Maeda vs Keith Hayward/Osamu Kido (12/5/84 UWF) - A complete bore for 25 of the 30 minutes this match went. Lifeless matches aren't a big deal when they're short, but when they're long, it's just painful. Maeda did nothing except kill one of the first exciting sequences of the match. The other three only picked up their game during the last 10 minutes or so. There was little or no direction, focus or action and it lasted 30 minutes.   Yoshiaki Fujiwara vs Super Tiger (12/5/84 UWF) - Absolutely brutal. The early portions of the match are peppered with some great mat sequences, with both guys working for holds, transitioning to other holds when those weren't working and just looking really believable in general. Then Tiger starts killing Fujiwara with kicks. For about seven minutes. This was actually good and bad in that it was silly that Tiger was allowed to kick the hell out of Fujiwara while he was down and supposedly taking a ten count. If a ten count is going to be used for knockdowns, the other guy can't be allowed continue beating his opponent after the opponent gets knocked down. It ruins the point and drama of the knockdown. The whole finishing sequence would have been better if Fujiwara was taking the beating on his feet, along with making a few more attempts at a comeback. But I can't complain too much, since this is still early UWF, and the workers were still perfecting the style.   Kazuo Yamazaki vs Nobuhiko Takada (12/5/84 UWF) - This was more or less a better version of Tiger vs. Maeda from 9/11/84. A great swing match, where both guys had their moments. Great, fluid matwork early, awesome transitions from one move attempt to the next and a fantastic back and forth stretch run where the outcome was very much in doubt.   Osamu Kido vs Akira Maeda (1/29/85 UWF) - Maeda actually sold a bit. Early portions were very dull, as Maeda was in control for 95% of the first 10-15 minutes. Things picked up at various points, but the work was never more than good. Ends up being merely decent, which is a lot better than I thought it would be after the first few minutes.   Nobuhiko Takada vs Marty Jones (2/18/85 UWF) - Good bit of fun here, with some clever reversals, great body language from both guys and a neat mini-story revolving around the headscissors. Not much drama, just a solidly worked, shoot-style wrestling match.   Akira Maeda vs Kazuo Yamazaki (2/18/85 UWF) - Not such a great first 15 minutes, although it wasn't all bad. Things got really good when Yamazaki was allowed to make his comeback and get in some quality offense. Most of the match was mediocre, but the stretch run made it good enough to get a decent placement on the list.   Riki Choshu vs Genichiro Tenryu (2/21/85 JPW) - This was one of those matches where they don't waste any time in moving the match along, as Tenryu tried to bomb Choshu out of there right at the start, which made the whole match seem like a stretch run. If the sort of work these guys did was at the end of 15-20 minutes of build, this would be a MOTYC. As it was, it's just merely good, but a lot of fun regardless.   Nobuhiko Takada vs Akira Maeda (5/25/85 UWF) - This was way too clipped, showing only six of nineteen minutes. What I saw was mostly good, and was enough to put it over some of the weaker matches, but I didn't see enough for this to really get a good placement.   Nobuhiko Takada vs Yoshiaki Fujiwara (7/8/85 UWF) - The main point here was that Fujiwara is a prick, and that makes Takada angry. Angry Takada decides to kick the crap out of Fujiwara, but that doesn't really stop Fujiwara from being a prick. Short match, but it had a nifty story and it was a ton of fun.   Yoshiaki Fujiwara vs Kazuo Yamazaki (8/29/85 UWF) - There was some nifty matwork here which led to some bizarre positions, along with a couple of neat counters. The match never really got hot, and the ending was somewhat abrupt, but it was still a solid match due to how good the early portions were.   Kazuo Yamazaki vs Nobuhiko Takada (9/11/85 UWF) - Tough call between this match or their 12/5/84 match, but I went with this one. The early portions of this match were hit or miss and weren't as strong as their previous encounter, but the stretch run was a lot better. Only problem was that it may have gone on a little too long. In any case, this match seemed like a blueprint for UWF2, as this was worked much like the bigger UWF2 matches, with a lot of knockdowns, comebacks and tons of drama.   Kazuo Yamazaki vs Nobuhiko Takada (8/13/88 UWF) - Takada was actually heeling it up here, twice kicking Yamazaki while he was down, along with punching him right in the face. The opening 5-10 minutes of this match was full of neat little spots and story sequences like that. Later, Takada started going after Yamazaki's leg but couldn't put him away. One complaint is that the dragon suplex wasn't treated well, as it didn't even get a close near-fall, and it wasn't sold very well either. Finishing sequence was incredible and the actual finish was incredibly hot. Excellent match.   Nobuhiko Takada vs Akira Maeda (11/10/88 UWF) - Incredibly dramatic and epic match. Both guys were just whaling on each other by the end. Really great story, with Takada getting the worst of it early, and only being one knockdown away from losing, only to reverse the tide and storm back for the win. The finish was just beautiful, as they were drilling each other with their best shots, and it was only a matter of who would go down first. Maeda's selling was fantastic and it was the best performance of his that I've seen.
