David Benoit Reveals Why He Was Banned From Backstage in WWE


David Benoit, son of the late Chris Benoit, was recently interviewed by Chris Van Vliet to talk about several professional wrestling topics.

Here are the highlights:

His love for wrestling:

I love wrestling with all of my heart. I watch it every day. When I’d go down to Atlanta (to visit my dad), we’d watch wrestling, then we’d wrestle in the pool a little bit. I got the diving headbutt done to me.

Where he’d like to sign after completing his professional wrestling training:

AEW or New Japan Pro Wrestling would be the goal. I tried getting in there (to NJPW). It was so hard to get in there.

Why he was banned from going backstage in WWE:

It was because I went to an AEW show. It blows my mind, bro. I had to make a few phone calls. I was trying to talk to someone, but they never got back to me for a good four to five months. Everything’s fine now, I talked to their lawyers. I’m welcomed everywhere now, we’re good.
