    Not really a lot to talk about here, it's an easy win in favour of Benoit. Shelton had maybe a couple years being good, but Benoit has over 15 of being great.

    Shelton's someone that I feel coasted off his reputation of 2002-2005 of being a good wrestler and one for the future, but then he never materialised into a great wrestler or a star, so the rest of his career was showing glimpses he was still good while just being a solid hand or an enhancement guy on the roster. He toured Japan quite a bit and I was never really impressed and his ROH run stunk.

    There's not a big enough output of work to say he was in Benoit's league.

    Couldn't put it better myself. Benjamin post-2005 was actively mediocre.

    I thought Benjamin excelled in Team Angle matches and stood out in them, some of which involed guys like Tajiri and Eddie Guerrero. And he has a few good matches down the years but nothing really to sink your teeth into. Not great matches come to mind either. Easy win for Benoit. Benjamin's best singles year (2004) is easy outdone by Benoit that year. I think that says it all.

    I remember a Shelton v HBK match from RAW back in the day that was pretty fantastic. Had a great finish, too (springboard into a sweet chin music). But yeah, outside of that there's not much on the level of the hundreds of good to great matches Benoit has had.

    I usually try to avoid doing this, but on a personal level Shelton was my favorite wrestler as a 12-13 year old and was highly influential to me personally. There's no question about Benoit being a better wrestler but I will go against my head and throw a pity vote for Shelton here to avoid a shutout. Not really guilty considering it's Benoit.
