An advisory that murder/suicide is wrong?
Good.  I'm sure people wouldn't know if you didn't tell them.

So now we won't have Eddie Guerrero celebrating with himself?

WARNING


WWE, Inc. is ready to admit to Chris Benoit's existence. Please check your local venue of eternal damnation for snow and ice. Be also advised that porcine animals may have become airborne.

My favorite is the pre-match graphic showing Shawn Michaels vs. HHH vs. NO ONE ELSE.

I thought I saw one of those porcines outside my apartment...No wait, it's the damn wind blowing all this snow around.

Amazing WWE finally realized they can't write out Benoit's entire existence like they can script a wrestling match.

I think we are seeing from the worlds of boxing, football etc that the WWE were far from being the only ones to blame for concussion caused injuries.

I can't wait for UFC guys to start getting to potato level myself (hell GSP may be smart enough to realize it hence his 'hiatus')

He was the perfect opponent for Chris Jericho IMO. Their ladder match at Royal Rumble was the tits.
 
2014-01-03 03:13:51 PM
What he did was inexcusable, but Benoit is still a part of WWE's past.  Trying to white-wash him out of existence only fuels fan speculation more.
 
2014-01-03 03:14:10 PM
If I remember right the autopsy on him revealed he had the brain of a man in his late 70's or 80's.  What he did was horrible, but with that much trauma how can one know if he knew what he was doing at that moment.

It's more of a tragedy to me than the act of an evil abusive man.

Boxing has seen a huge spike of severe brain injuries directly after fights, unlike football injuries which seem much more accumulative in nature. I know there has been a few cases in high school football and such, but as a general rule we tend to see the effects much further down the line at the highest level. A fighter that unfortunately died after a fight was a very good friend of mine, and he was also close friends with the guy that ultimately put him to sleep.

I can only speak from my experience with boxing, but it seems that training methods, nutrition, supplementation (legal and illegal), etc. keep getting more advanced and allowing athletes to push themselves to new heights at a pace that protective gear/methods just can't catch up. It seems like there is only so much that can be done in that regard, while athletes keep getting bigger and more powerful.

IIRC, Benoit didn't even know the crimes were real. Much like the concurrent Vince death storyline, he thought it was all kayfabe and would lead to a revenge match against the Undertaker. When he discovered the murders were legit he committed suicide. On the witness stand Triple H broke down and admitted he set the whole thing up to bury Benoit, literally and figuratively. He was sentenced to life but referee Earl Hebner reversed the decision. Source: lordsofpain.com
 
2014-01-03 03:25:32 PM
Kind of a shame that he was able to draw the heat in death that he could never manage in life.
 
2014-01-03 03:29:10 PM
He had some amazing matches.  Benoit and Jericho vs. Austin and Triple H for the Tag Team Championship was fantastic.

On the plus side, at least two people were willing to put him over in the end.

"WWE finally to admit that Chris Benoit existed Brain."

"Hopefully it will bring awareness to catastrophic brain injuries, Monsoon."

"Let's hope so Brain."

"Do you think they got Bed, Bath and Beyond to sponsor that DVD? They sell the best pillows."

"WILL YOU STOP?!"

"You're right, it's probably like when they turned down that rope and rigging company for the Owen Hart retrospective."

"STOP! I'm SERIOUS!"

"I heard afterwards their stock price just crashed through the floor"

"We're done here."

Why can't you wait?  Sadism?

Go watch some of the power bombs he was dishing out in his early WCW day.  They have been dubbed the "I Don't Give A fark Power Bomb" in my household.
 
2014-01-03 04:43:03 PM
Good. He was one of the best in ring performers (top 5 easily) in the history of the industry and even though I understood why WWE would want to make him an unperson, the last few hours of his life should not erase what he contributed to the WWE and to pro wrestling at large.
 
2014-01-03 04:43:42 PM
There's a WWE network? That certainly is something.

Exactly. You knew when his music hit that you were in for a great match. He could even make underperformers look good.

Yes he farked up, but as you said his contributions shouldn't be forgotten.

farking up is speeding on an icy night with your family in the car.  What Benoit did goes beyond that haha.
 
2014-01-03 04:57:19 PM
Does this mean redacted submitted this headline while drinking vodka and eating pancakes?

I'm very surprised though they'll show his matches, I kind of liked the erasing him from existence thing.

Yeah, I didn't mean to make it sound like it wasn't terrible. What he did was unforgivable, but he was a great wrassler.

Watch Austin during this match.  He is impressed/freaked out.

mikaloyd: Somebody should buy his old house and convert into a cage match arena


I think the house has been sold at least twice since The Incident.  The first people to buy it sold it less than a year later after wrestling fans kept knocking on their door, asking to tour the place.

It'll still be edited, though.

Any commentary praising him will be deleted, camera angles will be changed as to not show close-ups of him, ring intros will be cut out, segments will be removed, and worst of all, they'll never show the Tonka Chris Benoit wrestling buddy ever again.

I bet they do like they did with the old logo and just put a huge distracting blur over him. The whole video it'll look like Kurt Angle is fighting Noob Saibot.
