Hey everyone, back again with yet another match-up in the second round of the greatest technical wrestler tournament. Because of it's controversial nature, I'm going to remind everyone again that voting should only be based on technical ability only, not whether you like what the man did or what he stood for. With that being said, I really believe Benoit to be the better in this one. Regal is certainly great, but Benoit is in another class imo.

Here is a classic these two put on at the Pillman Memorial:

Nothing against Benoit but I always thought Regal was the best technical wrestler ever.

I'll say Benoit for this one, even though I think very highly of Regal.

Dean Malenko takes the cake though. And the Jello.

Man this is a hard one. Benoit was trained in the dungeon AND the NJPW dojo. That's a lot of influences! But Regal learnt the hard way and perfected the art of believable technical wrestling..

I have to go against my heart and say Benoit.

I've been asked to vote with my head, not my heart, so I went with Benoit

Yes, Malenko was certianly one of the very best, unfortunatly, he was already via Curt Hennig in round 1.

I'll vote for The Crippler over anyone in the techincal department.

Well, it's official, the poll is closed and Benoit has advanced. Congrats Wolverine. He moves on to face fellow Canadian Bret Hart in the semi-finals.

I would only vote Kurt Angle ahead of Benoit if he were the option.

Looks like this is not only possible, but probable. In fact, I would venture to say that if this weren't the case then it would be considered an upset.

EDIT: btw, Mutoh=WIN
