• Old School WCW/WWF Veteran’s Birthday Would Have Been Today
Today would have been the 52nd birthday of Old School WCW/WWF Veteran “The Crippler” Chris Benoit.
After his time in Calgary Stampede Wrestling during the 80s, Chris Benoit appeared for both New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling during the early 90s, before joining Extreme Championship Wrestling in 1994.
In late 1995, Benoit signed an exclusive deal with WCW, so he worked for them until leaving the promotion in early 2000 to jump ship to the World Wrestling Federation, alongside his close personal friends Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko & Perry Saturn.
Chris was loyal to the WWF (in 2002 renamed WWE) until the tragic incident in June 2007.
