he killed his wife and kid. I don't think that will ever 'blow over'. Surely people are bored of this debate by now? Lets move on.
I'm going to agree with The Piper on this one. The last time the Benoit topic was brought up, it caused hell.. I'm amazed, especially after we were told that no further Benoit blogs would be posted, to see this up here. To clarify matters, I am an absolute die hard fan when it came to Benoit's in ring ability, along with his wrestling career.
Benoit in the WWE hall of fame will never happen. Simple fact.
You must not have been here for the last two Benoit blogs that started a hell of a discussion
When was the last time OJ Simpson (who by the way was found not guilty of double murder) was featured on espn.com, yahoosports.com or another mainstream website highlighting his career? Oh wait, never. Why should things be any different with Chris Benoit and the WWE? If his wife's family comes out and publicly forgives Chris and says they don't hold him accountable and have no ill will toward him or the Benoit family because they understand he suffered brain damage, then maybe one day down the line he goes into the HOF.
On another note, I will admit that Benoit's in ring work was second to none. His matches were always top notch. However, his mic skills were pretty awful. I think a lot of the IWC gives him way too much credit. Was he one of the best ever, sure. Is he in the same league as Punk, HBK, Bret Hart....not even close.
I do have to agree that it will never happen not that he doesnt have the credentiels.to back up y he should for those who have children or a family they keep it with them unfortunatly and in a PG era the outrage from parents that know would be so.damaging they wont risk it just look at his entry in the,wwe encylepedia 2
Never going to put a man who comitted double murder into the Hall of Fame. Great wrestler, HOF career but his callous actions at his home that night will forever deny him any sort of recognition from WWE.
