10 Best WWE Kurt Angle Matches
#9 Kurt Angle vs. Edge vs. Chris Benoit vs. Eddie Guerrero - SmackDown December 5, 2002
With these four world-class athletes, everyone watching that night was expecting a great match, but I don't think anyone expected it to be one of the greatest matches in SmackDown history.
A Fatal Four Way with the number one contendership for the Big Show's WWE Championship at stake, this one already felt like a Championship match. The action was fast paced the whole way through, despite Edge has been at the receiving end of a steel chair attack by Albert just prior to the bell.
All four men didn't slow down even once, and throughout several big moves, finishers, suplexes, and more thrilling action. Tag Champion Eddie Guerrero was the first to go, at the hands of his 'frenemy' Chris Benoit and his Crossface. Benoit was next after Eddie attacked him after his elimination, which was capitalized by a Spear from Edge.
This left Edge and Kurt Angle, who had several classic one-on-one pay-per-views matches earlier that year, and this felt like another one of them. The two had a battle, complete with several Angle Slams, spears, an Edgecution DDT, several suplexes from each, an Angle Slam from Edge to Angle, and finally, a top rope Angle Slam to Edge to put him away.
