Angle won at Wrestlemania X7, Royal Rumble 03, Judgment Day 01; Benoit won at Backlash 01. Those are the major PPV events that I can remember off of the top of my head, there may have been some TV matches they've had that I can't remember/care about.
One-On-One: -Angle def. Benoit by pinfall in 14:02 [4-1-2001; WM X7] -Benoit def. Angle in Ultimate Submission Match in 31:30 [4-29-2001; Backlash] -Angle def. Benoit in 2 of 3 Falls Match in 23:54 [5-20-2001; Judgment Day] -Benoit def. Angle by pinfall in 13:55 [9-22-2002; Unforgiven] -Angle def. Benoit by submission in 19:48 [1-19-2003; Rumble]
Angle holds the lead in one-on-one PPV matches...but X7 was with a handful of tights and Judgment Day was with Edge & Christian helping.
Benoit had the tights at Unforgiven 2002. The only non-PPV match I can remember was the cage match they had on Raw in May 2001 I believe. I think that went to a non-finish because of outside interference by Austin. I think they also had a match in February of 2003 on Smackdown but i might be thinking of Mysterio.
Well technically Angle won the Iron-Man Match, as Benoit tapped out immediately following the bell and before the sudden-death overtime. Outside of the Rumble match I don't think there's ever been a case of one or the other truly proving their abilities over the other, and seeing as Kurt won that then kayfabe-wise I'd give him the nod.

I knew they had a match then. Didn't know they had so many TV matches. Now that we've taken care of one-on-one matches, I guess we can all find the matches that they were involved with together. I'll start with the triple threat match at WM2000 w/ Y2J and the Royal Rumble 2003 match!
Originally posted by leggoThey had about four one-on-one matches on SmackDown during the days of the SmackDown six, for the record.
I remember this also, because at one ppv with Angle vs. Benoit they were putting over the fact that Benoit had won like three times in a row or something. So Benoit has atleast a hand full of wins on tv shows.
Edit: I have just about every Raw and Smackdown (since Angle and Benoit have been in the WWE) and according to what I have taped these are Kurt and Chris's tv matches

Really interesting. Seems like the same guy he is now for the most part. Liked the Eddie story. Man, TNA could have basically absorbed ROH during the Feinstein stuff if they'd put the effort into it instead of obsessing with WWE.
