“It was my best performance by far,” said Angle. “That match was magic. Chris and I lit up that night. As a matter of fact, when the match was over I won. I remained champion. Team Angle carried me off and Vince McMahon allowed Boston fans to get on their feet and give Chris a standing ovation for 15 minutes during the pay-per-view. So he was wasting time but the match was that good that Vince McMahon just decided to let that guy soak it in and that speaks volumes about the kind of match it was.”
Chris Benoit will never be in the WWE Hall of Fame, and he was washed from WWE History. After taking the lives of his wife and son before ending his own life, Benoit was seen as a monster, but he was also one of the best pro wrestlers alive during his time on this earth.
