One of the most overrated wrestlers ever vs one of the most underrated. Sid was an awesome heel, and somehow he was even a better talker than captain boring.

Vote for the guy who didn't murder his family.

When they met on the biggest stage, a ppv main event with the world title on the line, WCW put Benoit over despite knowing he was possibly right out the door. He left put over strong.

He also went on to win the WWE world title at Wrestlemania. That's the kind of spot Sid had previously been built up to lose.

There are plenty more interesting monsters in this tournament than Sid to vote for. And there are plenty of potentially interesting matches for Benoit after this one. Its hard to argue against this being a clear vote for Benoit.

I disagree that it's hard to argue against Chris Benoit. One of the performers in this voting poll on an internet message board murdered his wife and family; the other did not.

Vote for the guy in this poll who isn't a child killer.

Also, in before someone tries the moral equivalence argument.

If we're not going to use the criteria of Benoit's wrestling career to evaluate him in these matches, why include him in the tournament?

He's clearly not going to win or make a deep run. But he should be advancing through this first round matchup, as history already tells us that this is a matchup that Chris Benoit was tabbed to go over in for a world title.

There's no reason to add Benoit every year just to see him get eliminated by the same reason. We all know about what happened. We all know that it was wrong.

I'm going to vote for Benoit here. He had classic matches and he was a machine in the ring. I still get excited when I hear his entrance music. Diving headbutt and crossface are included in my favorite moves of all time as they're damn good. I don't remember him speaking on mic but I continue listening that Benoit wasn't good on mic. But for me, in-ring skills >> mic skills.

So, Benoit.

I'm going to be voting against Chris Benoit for wrestling reasons. Sid was consistently on top of whatever promotion he was in, Benoit was occasionally placed there in desperate times, and then went back down or out the door again. Chris Benoit, from a wrestling perspective at least, was a safe pair of hands, but a promotion full of Chris Benoits wouldn't get out of high school gyms.

Match history, title legacy, all around badass, points to Chris.

Sid is known for sweating, yelling and breaking his leg.

Until Benoit is removed for his personal choices, along with anyone else with a sketchy/tragic outside life, then we should vote on in ring merit. I wont yell at you for making the choice against Benoit, but if thats the case, I assume any straight edge or devout religious folks should kindly vote against anyone listed who fails the moral checklist.

Vote against Chris if you must, but dont make a hypocrite of yourself by ignoring the same criteria later on.

Sid was a great spectacle, who dorked up his chances of being the next Hulk Hogan or Bruiser Brody.

Chris sold tickets, captured the hearts of the fans and had the kind of big moments that few wrestlers ever have.

I don't think that anyone who votes for Chris forgives him for what he became, I think they recognize that Sid didn't have half the heart or popularity that Chris had.

Vote Chris Benoit.

I'm going to be voting for Sid, but rest assured that it has not a damn thing to do with Benoit's personal life and what he did.

Bottom line is that Sid, while not the best in the ring or on the mic, was a consistent top draw in wrestling during the early and mid 90s. Also, the type of performers that he beat were the Benoit type of performers. Like Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels. Yes Benoit could wrestle circles around Sid, but honestly, that's about all Benoit had on Sid. He was a bigger spectacle, draw, and name. Going by that, how could you not vote for Sid?

Vote Sid.
