• “Just shows what an idiot you are” – WCW Veteran To Jordynne Grace After Comments On Chris Benoit
Whenever the name of Chris Benoit comes up in a conversation, it always leads to a heated exchange between the fans.
A fan recently tweeted:
“It’s always wild listening to wrestlers discuss Chris Benoit in a professional context cause they always be sure to note they aren’t excusing what happened before praising his in-ring stuff for 10 minutes.
Except New Jack.”
Former IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace then replied:
“This is gonna be the coldest take I ever tweet on this app. I already know y’all gonna be mad.
I don’t think Benoit could 100% hang with most of the present day best wrestlers. He would not be able to remember matches. Also may he burn in hell, amen 🙏🏼
Proving a point: I said something very lightly critical about him. People jump to defend him. He should NEVER be defended. Dude lost that right when he gave his 7 year old Xanax and strangled him while he was already unconscious.”
A fan then replied:
“Removing the CTE, you don’t think Benoit in his prime could keep up with the best of today? May I ask what the rational behind that is?”
“Maybe I’m biased because he murdered his family, idk. Probably just me. I think we should all hate him and disregard his entire body of work. But again. That’s just my take.
I always found it revolting to see people praise his wrestling after what he did.”
TNA Hall Of Famer & former WWE Women’s Champion Gail Kim tweeted:
“Controversial for sure. I disagree though with the take of hanging with the best of the best of today. He most certainly could and I saw someone comment Kurt Angle couldn’t either. He would mop the floor with everyone.”
Grace then replied:
“I just personally can’t separate the person from the wrestler.”
After reading all of this, Chavo Guerrero tweeted the following:
“I think @JordynneGrace just lost a lot of wrestling credibility from some of her comments.”
WCW Veteran Konnan said the following about this topic on the Keepin’ It 100 podcast:
“I can’t believe that she would publicly come out and make an a$$ of herself like that. But that ain’t the first time she’s had stupid takes. And, you know, with age comes wisdom. You’ll get here soon enough.
Obviously, you don’t know what the f**k you’re talking about. Benoit without a doubt out of all the years and all the dressing rooms and all the people that I’ve worked with is one of the greatest performers I’ve ever seen.
His passion was second to none. His intensity was second to none. His preparation was second to none. What do you mean he couldn’t hang with nobody today? Bro, 90% of the guys today could not hang with him. That’s the bottom line because I worked with them.
And what do you mean that he would have forgotten everything? Listen, if he was at a point where he was forgetting, nobody would let him put together matches.
He had the ability to control the match and say, ‘Hey, we don’t need this, take this out’ because he was wrestling with Rey Mysterio, who was a wild f**king guy that he had to edit down and say, ‘Hey, do this, Juventud do this, Psychosis do this.’ So I mean, I don’t know what the f**k you’re talking about. That’s f**king ignorant.
And bro, okay, yeah, he killed his family. Yeah, the guy had CTE. It ain’t like he was a serial killer. The guy had all these problems accumulated from years like we’re seeing now in wrestling, like we’re seeing now in football, like we just saw with this one guy, the 33-year-old wide receiver (Demaryius Thomas) that just passed away.
It’s a serious thing for you to make light of it and make a stupid idiotic remark like that just shows what an idiot you are.
If you’re gonna bury somebody, you better have a better career than them.”
