PostSubject: Vince Will Never Acknowledge Chris Benoit   Fri Jun 22, 2012 8:25 am

In an interview with former WCW/ECW star Scotty Riggs and one of the topics
discussed was the Chris Benoit incident and why Riggs feels that Vince
McMahon considers Benoit to be a blac keye for WWE.

I still believe that what happened, the tragedy with Chris and
Nancy and Daniel. I knew them well. Used to eat dinner with Chris and he
would get on his cell phone and he would be on the phone with Nancy and
he would give me the phone and I'm like what and he goes, "Nancy wants
to say hello to you. She loves you."

I had a great relationship with the family. So whatever happened
in that period of time, I still don't think it's the Chris Benoit that
all of us knew. It might have been that physical person, but the mental
person. Whatever was going on with him mentally, I just don't think that
was him. Verne Gagne a lot of people knew him from AWA and this
wrestling historian, basically is in a retirement home. Killed a
roommate, something of the sort. Never got the publicity because he
wasn't high profile at that time. But he had no recollection of it.
Didn't remember doing it and they basically gave him a free get go.
Basically did the same thing, took another person's life. Whether its
your family or whether its a person or anything of that sort. Scott
Hall, he's had his demons, found out what he did early before he started
wrestling when he took a life, but how it affects you. You see how it's
affecting him, his demons and his life now. But with Chris, no one ever
saw what was happening in his mind. You saw glimpses of things that
maybe might make you question, but no red flags that would make you
think he'd do that. So for people who really really respect him as a
wrestler. The fans will never forget Chris Benoit. Wrestlers who knew
Chris Benoit as Chris and as a guy who was there as a friend will never
forget him and so he'll be remembered. I think WWE, Vince McMahon will
never acknowledge him because of their quote, unquote family PG status
right now. They just won't do it. To them it's a black eye. Vince, he
denys everything and he'll just sweep it under the rug and only let the
good be seen. He'll get rid of the bad, pretend it didn't exist. He does
that with everything and everybody and always has. It's unfortunate.

Honestly, there's no reason to acknowledge Benoit. He was in the WWE Encyclopedia, and will be in the 2nd edition, but no mention of his murder/suicide, and why should there be? Was he a great wrestler? Hell yes. But some things override the good you did, and the bad is just too much to be bothered with. I'm fine with him getting no mention ever again tbh. It's just a sour note.
