Default WWE's erasing Benoit from history is getting ridiculous?

I mean Cena cleary had Punk in a Crossface and Cole calls it the STF. I mean come on Benoit isn't the only guy to ever use a crossface it's a well known submission move. I'll never condone what Benoit did but you can't erase the fact he was one of the greatest wrestlers ever and a first class technician.















I have that SummerSlam on DVD the only problem is the audio cuts out midway through the match so i don't get to hear J.R. and King commenting Orton's victory great match however the audio cutting out still bothers me and ruins the atmosphere

I guess we will never see Randy Orton winning the World Heavyweight Championship for the first time on a DVD since it was vs Benoit.

Well Benoit murdered his family and committed suicide. I don't think they should get rid of his appearances and history, but they shouldn't mention him after what he did.

He murdered his child. He wasn't a first class anything.

Honestly i would give you 5 thumbs up for that statement. Erasing Benoit from history is ridiculous. Yes what he did was horrible, im not saying that he didn't do it but the amount of evidence that came from the scene kind of leaves thoughts for me. Yes they "may" have found steroids in his system or whatever, but it could still have been setup that. Of course no one will ever know the truth.































But like you said he is one of the greatest ever and you cant erase that. Anyone who knows wrestling knows that is not a "STF" but a crossface. they could have easily said that, they didn't have to say "crippler crossface".































And for the guy who said who is Chris Benoit, "I am not trying to be an d!ck or nothing, but IF you really don't know who he is, then i don't see how your a true wrestling fan IMO.

True. I agree with you! I think WWE should acknowledge the fact that they have been ignoring Chris Benoit and tell why.

He is not erased. He's in the record books, look it up on WWE.com . They simply aren't promoting him in any way which is why they may have cut him out of various products.

I think that was just a case of Cole messing up. In the past couple weeks, I've seen several mentions of Chris Benoit by name on WWE's website, and even a picture.































BTW, "STF Cole" was trending worldwide on Twitter after Cole called it an STF.

A man killing his entire family is ridiculous, then commiting suicide so he doesn't have to face any of the consequences, totally ridiculous!
