Benoit's moment in the sun
21 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While not the greatest Rumble match, in my opinion (1992 will always top it for me), it is a definite #2, simply because Chris Benoit FINALLY won a big one, after years of coming up short. The '04 Rumble does have the best ending ever, with Benoit choking Big Show unconscious and tipping him over the top rope. The ending is perfect, as it works with both Benoit's character (vicious submission-style wrestler with a mean streak) and Big Show's character (clumsy big man with his own history of blowing big matches). And the way the Philly fans reacted to Benoit's win is tremendous.

The rest of the card isn't so hot, but Benoit's virtuoso performance is a must-see. There are other highlights in that Rumble: Ernest Miller's soul-brother routine (SOMEONE CALL MY MOMMA!), Mick Foley making a surprise appearance and eliminating Intercontinental champion Randy Orton. But it's really Benoit's show, and he delivers with gusto.
