The third to receive Cauliflower Alley Club's Future Legend Award, '''Chris Benoit'''Christopher Michael Benoit grew up in Canada idolizing such wrestlers as [[Wrestling/BretHart Bret "The Hitman" Hart]] and [[Wrestling/DynamiteKid the Dynamite Kid]]; in 1985, at the age of eighteen, Benoit debuted in Canada's Stampede Wrestling. From there, Benoit went to various overseas promotions for a number of years (mainly in Japan), then made his debut in Wrestling/{{ECW}} in 1994. It was in ECW where Benoit earned the nickname "The Crippler": during a match with Wrestling/{{Sabu}}, he performed a back body drop, but Sabu landed right on his head and broke his neck. Though this was an accident, Benoit's "Crippler" nickname stuck with him for the remainder of his career.

In 2004, Benoit had arguably the best year of his career: he won the Royal Rumble by lasting the entire match (over an hour after having entered #1), went on to ''[=WrestleMania=] 20'' to win the World Heavyweight Championship in Madison Square Garden in another Match of the Year candidate by making Wrestling/TripleH tap clean to the Crippler Crossface, and he retained the title the next month at ''Backlash'' by making Wrestling/ShawnMichaels tap to the Sharpshooter in Canada (a symbolic apology to the Canadian crowd for the Wrestling/MontrealScrewjob). Following that, Benoit stayed near the main event for the rest of the year, feuding with Edge, Wrestling/RandyOrton, and Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship (Orton defeated Benoit to earn his first reign with that belt at ''[=SummerSlam=] 2004'').

** As of February 2014, Benoit matches are available unedited on the WWE Network, preceded by a {{content warning|s}}. However, you will have to know which shows Benoit appeared on to do so, as the search engine doesn't acknowledge his name. In addition, every Benoit match lacks a jump-to shortcut when watching an event on the Network.
