• WWF Legend Explains Why He Won’t Stop Talking About Chris Benoit
On an episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, our Olympic Hero spoke about working with Chris Benoit during the famous Attitude Era (and also during the Ruthless Aggression Era) and clearly stated that he won’t be amongst those who try to erase Benoit from professional wrestling history.
Here’s what Kurt Angle said:
“Oh, by the way. I did want to say this. I know that people don’t really care about me talking about Chris Benoit, but I’m not doing it for Chris Benoit. If I erase Chris Benoit, I’m going to erase most of my career.
And I’m not going to erase myself. So, a lot of people might not agree with me having this show today talking about Chris and everything.
I don’t condone what he did outside the ring, but what he did in the ring was phenomenal, and I love the guy for that.”
Chris Benoit left Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling after the WCW Souled Out 2000 pay-per-view and joined the World Wrestling Federation in February 2000.
He stayed with the company (later WWE) until the infamous tragedy took place in June 2007.
