Chris Benoit is one of the best technical wrestlers alive today. He was trained by the legendary Hart family in Calgary, Alberta. He wrestled for a few years in Canada, and then was brought to the United States with Extreme Championship Wrestling.
After his stint in ECW, he moved to World Championship Wrestling where he gained mainstream success in America. He was known for his wrestling skill and was one of the Four Horsemen with the likes of Ric Flair and Arn Anderson. It took him a few years, but he did win the WCW Heavyweight Championship in January of 2000, but he quit the company and headed for World Championship Wrestling.
He entered WWF with Perry Saturn, Dean Malenko and Eddie Guerrero and has had great success. He won the Intercontinental Championship, had a great feud with Chris Benoit and wrestled some great matches on pay-per-view. While he was poised at the top to be at his best ever, he suffered an injury that sidelined him for about a year. He was drafted to Mr. McMahon's Smackdown!, but he returned to Ric Flair's RAW. Now he seems to go wherever he wants to. Look for him to climb back to the top very soon!
