Rank These Competitors

I’m watching the 2005 Rumble and there’s a stretch in the early part with an amazing group of talent coming in one after another.  My task for you all: rank the talent in the ring at the moment.  The guys in the match currently are: Guerrero, Benoit, Mysterio, Benjamin, Edge, Booker T and Chris Jericho.  I’m looking for what order you think they have in overall talent, not prestige or accomplishments.  My order:1. Chris Jericho

2. Chris Benoit

3. Edge

4. Shelton Benjamin

5. Rey Mysterio

6. Eddie Guerrero

7. Booker T

 

At the end of the day, there isn’t a wrong answer to this question.

 

Give me lists.  NOW!

    You want us to rate this as if it was 2005? Or as if it was 2013 looking back on their careers? Here’s both:

    If it was 2005:
    1. Jericho
    2. Mysterio
    3. Jericho
    4. Guerrero
    5. Booker T
    6. Edge
    7. Benjamin

    If it was 2013:
    1. Jericho (widened the gap thanks to his 2008 run)
    2. Edge (went on to win about a dozen world titles)
    3. Booker T (King Booker bumps him up big-time for me)
    4. Guerrero (if he didn’t die and thus end his career early he’d be higher)
    5. Mysterio (behind Eddie because everything he did after November 2005 was due to Eddie)
    6. The refs outside the ring
    7. The commentators
    8. The ring announcer
    9. The Timekeeper
    10. Benjamin

    Benoit ceased to exist as of June 2007, so he doesn’t get rated.

  11. Si says:

    Edge
    Jericho
    Benoit
    Guerrero
    Mysterio
    Booker T
    Benjamin

    Not a list of personal preference, more of a list of what their contributions and achievements have done in the long term

    On second thought I’ll put Jericho after Rey.
