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

Anyone else pick up on a minor logic flaw? The members of Nexus are banned from ringside ... yet the match must end in a pinfall or submission. IOW, no disqualification. So ... what would happen if Nexus interfered?
