Sorry, I have to be an asshole.

Arn Anderson, the official in the match between Benoit and Sid, reversed his decision and, in the same statement, said "it's as if the match never happened." Benoit no more won the WCW Title that night than Chris Jericho did when he "didn't beat" HHH. Neither reign counts.

WWE, officially, is even "iffy" on the issue.

Heyman may have mentioned that Benoit was a former WCW World Champion during commentary, but Heyman isn't exactly a WCW authority. Vince McMahon mentioned that Rick Martel was a former Intercontinental Champion once during his Survivor Series '92 commentary, but that doesn't make it so.

Also, while WWE has acknowledged it in the past, WWE has also dis-acknowledged it.

    Originally posted by Benoit's bio
    There was a time when Chris Benoit was considered the greatest Superstar to never hold the World Heavyweight Championship. However, after a journey of more than a decade that included more valleys than peaks, Benoit picked the biggest possible stage to earn the biggest prize in sports entertainment when he defeated Triple H and Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XX to achieve his dream and stand as the very best in the business.

Of course, that same bio also lists "WCW Champion." I'd take an official proclaimation from a WCW official during the time of WCW than a contradictory WWE statement any day.

EDIT: Technically, the quote from says he never won the "World Heavyweight Championship," so maybe that statement doesn't totally contradict it. Still, Arn reversed his decision.

The Dusty finish on the Souled Out 2000 title match has always been iffy. As far as I'm concerned, WCW's revisionist retraction of Benoit's title win is null due to Benoit giving the title back and leaving before they had the chance to take the title back. RAW seems to be viewing the World & WCW Championships as seperate titles, so Benoit has one of each now.

My personal feeling about this is similar to the Mick Foley/Terry Funk win of the tag titles that was reversed on Raw the next night. If you win the title and the decision is reversed during the same show it's not a win. If people go home thinking that you are the champion, even if the title gets taken away from you 24 hours later, it counts as a win.

The Arn Abderson thing was just WCW trying desperately to deal with the fact that through their own stupidity that they had just gift-wrapped their champion and handed him to Vince as a late Christmas gift.

I would love somebody to do "Same Gimmick Matches--Through the Years" reviews like: 1. Singles Ladder matches 2. Iron Man matches 3. Street Fights I think THAT would be kinda cool. But that's just me. ;)
