5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide to WWE star 17 Jan 2005
By T. Bently VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hard Knocks consists of a documentary describing Chris Benoit's rise up the pro wrestling ladder plus 15 of his matches spanning just as many years, from his time in the Japanese federations in 1990 right up to Wrestlemania in 2004.

The documentary contains lots of interviews with Benoit's family and his WWE colleagues Eddie Guerrero and Dean Malenko. He comes across as a really nice guy and it's interesting hearing how dedicated he was to making a career in grappling at a very early age. He idolized the Dynamite Kid and from the clips it's amazing how similar their ring styles are - they even look alike.

Of the matches, I liked the two early Japanese shows the best, against Jushin Liger and Eddie Guerrero. These were the days when Benoit wrestled under the name Pegasus Kid and Eddie appeared as Black Tiger. You've got the option of alternative commentaries on these bouts so you get to hear Benoit commenting on his own moves, together with Malenko, who also wrestled at the same time in Japan.

Overall, this is a good value DVD with a nice balance between documentary footage and whole matches.

Chris Benoit vs Sabu (OW That had to hurt)
Wild Pegasus vs Black Tiger(Eddie Guerrero)
and

This is a must by for any wrestling fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Story of a Fantastic Wrestler. 23 Jan 2005
Format:DVD
This DVD is totally perfect. At first, I was presuming that this would have Benoit doing the same ring moves as he does today, although I was certainly wrong. It was great to see a much younger Chris Benoit executing some unique moves that I have never seen him perform. See his fantastic matches in Japan facing legends such as Jushin 'Thunder' Liger and Black Tiger (Eddie Guerrero). I cannot recommend this DVD enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars !!Why Beniot Why!! 1 Aug 2007
Format:DVD
NOTE: The 3 Japanese matches on this disc come with 2 alternate commentaries each. The first is a pretty straight forward, but sufficiently informative, commentary by Michael Cole & Tazz. It's probably best to jump straight to this, unless you understand Japanese, or have a lot of time to spare. The 2nd commentary is by Benoit, Dean Malenko & Todd Grisham. It's nothing controversial or highly enlightening, but it's informative enough & fascinating because most of it is coming from Benoit himself.

vs JUSHIN 'THUNDER' LIGER for the IWGP Junior HeavyWeight Title. August-19, 1990: Benoit was under the mask here wrestling as 'The Pegasus Kid'. He was the challenger to Liger's title & defeated him in this 15 minute clinic of a match, to win his 1st ever Japanese title. The first 6 or 7 minutes of this bout, is a submissions based match, where basically every flashy submission move on the planet is used by one wrestler or the other. If I was to be in any way critical, I actually doubted the psychology of it all, but it was as entertaining as hell, and nothing lasted too long to get anywhere near monotonous. What followed was some fast-paced, high-flying, chain & counter wrestling which was right up there with any Benoit vs Angle match that you've seen. Benoit wins with a tombstone piledriver followed by a top-rope legdrop. As always with Japanese matches, it's also interesting to see how the crowds react to everything. Match Rating...9

vs TOO COLD SCORPIO. WCW SuperBrawl. February-21, 1993: I always thought Scorpio (who later became Flash Funk in the WWF) had a unique wrestling style that sometimes really worked & sometimes really bombed. You just knew that it would work to some extent with Chris Benoit.
