• WWF Legend Doesn’t Want Chris Benoit’s Career To Be Erased
During a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, Old School WWF Attitude Era Legend Kurt Angle revealed that he doesn’t appreciate WWE erasing Chris Benoit’s career by basically pretending he never existed.
While Benoit’s matches aren’t edited out of the Peacock & WWE Network PPVs & TV-shows anymore (as they were on the predecessor ‘WWE 24/7), you can not search for them using the search-field feature.
Also, Chris is never mentioned anywhere on WWE TV or in official documentaries about the old days and that is not going to change ever.
Here’s what Kurt Angle had to say:
“Five of my 10 best matches were with Chris, but obviously they want to keep him under wraps and it’s unfortunate.
The thing is, if they erase Chris Benoit’s career, they’re erasing a lot of my career.
I understand why they did it, but what about the other wrestlers that competed against Chris?
You’re taking those matches away, and you’re just not mentioning the name, Chris Benoit.
Anytime we have any videos that surface up on WWE television, you’re never going to see Chris.”
