      “Former WWE Superstar Chris Benoit, who is banned from appearing on WWE programming or DVD releases”

      Not entirely true. He has not been on TV but he’s been in plenty of DVDs after the tragedy.

      • Kris Godwin

        Yeah, I think WWE just edits-out any commentary that references him.

    • Nicholas Williams

      What Benoit was accused of doing that night shouldnt shadow his wrestling career. Benoit was one of the best wrestlers in the world and no one can take that from him.

    • Can’t be done.

      I’m sure they would like to celebrate his wrestling career, but certain people have a hard time separating the murders he committed from his wrestling career. People would just say “how could celebrate someone who killed his wife and child?” Thats the issue that comes with having a publicly traded wrestling company.
