OO: Ozfan's Opinion - Chris Benoit

Rating: 5 votes, 2.80 average.
Hey everyone. I am here to share with you my opinion on Chris Benoit. I hope you enjoy.

[B]Chris Benoit: May 21, 1967 – June 24, 2007[/B]
- World Heavyweight Champion
- WCW World Champion
- Intercontinental Champion
- United States Champion
- WCW United States Champion
- WCW Television Champion
- WWE Tag Team Champion
- WCW Tag Team Champion
- WCW Tag Team Champion
- Royal Rumble Winner of 2004

The fact of the matter is that Chris deserves to have his name mean something again. He deserves to be acknowledged once again. He was one of if not the most technical wrestler in history. He accomplished a lot, was well known and has now been completely knocked out of the heads of WWE fans and staff because of his death and the situation leading up to it.

How many other wrestlers committed murder? If you recall, Bruiser Brody was stabbed by Jose Gonzalez back in 1988. Jose is still acknowledged, although the memory of a man who commits murder and then takes his own life is then shut out out completely? I don't think that is right. Not fair at all.

Not to mention, Benoit didn't have control of his own actions, as he had perminant brain damage caused by stunts pulled over the years during his time in WWE and WCW. He had a form of dementia and the brain of an 85 year old with Alzheimer's disease, leading to his actions. And it is not fair that WWE should be the ones to decide to have no more affiliation with Benoit. If it has to happen, it should be his family to decide.

Benoit is a legend, living or dead, it doesn't matter. Everyone knows he would not have done what he did if he had control of his body. He deserves to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Dean Malenko, Rey Mysterio and Chris' father should induct him together.

[B]CHRIS BENOIT FOR HALL OF FAME 2014! [/B]
But that probably will not happen...

    Due to the length of this "blog" i kind of feel as if it is to garner some heat or start a debate. We've all bee up and down this road together several times. We've argued. We've fought. Some people even got banned over this topic. I dont feel as if i speak for everyone here on ewn but we all agree that he was an in ring genious. He was a 5 star performer and had a hall of fame worthy career. Now personally, and i know many agree with me, wwe did the right thing bu severing ties with him. He will never be in the hall of fame. Simply because he murdered his wife and son. Its as simple as that. You can claim brain damage and this and that but there isnt a single person alive that can prove that chris wasnt in control of his actions. Im not saying he was but it cant be proven otherwise and honestly, inducting him or celebrating his in ring work would garner nothing bit the worst kind of publicity. As a publicly traded company, they cant have that. And its as simple as that.

    Blink is 100% correct. Chris was my favorite wrestler, but he ruined his own reputation.

    2014, no. Will he possibly get inducted? Maybe, but it would be another 20-30 years from now after the whole incident has completely blown over.

    I'm not going to trash you but this is a stupid opinion. In every other real sports hall of fame they tell the voters to choose on character considerations as well as in game accomplishments. Benoit murdered his wife and son and even though you say he had permanent brain damage that's not an excuse for what he did. He clearly wasn't completely insane because he put Bibles next to his wife, son, and himself. He should not and will never ever go into the Hall of Fame.

    If you think otherwise I can't imagine that you are married or have children. If he had committed suicide that's one thing but this is forever inexcusable.

    100% Agreed, he will NEVER be in the HOF, and deserves no such honor. Period.

    Never going to put a man who comitted double murder into the Hall of Fame. Great wrestler, HOF career but his callous actions at his home that night will forever deny him any sort of recognition from WWE.
