When will he be in the Hall of Fame? Whilst what he did was bad it's easily dwarfed by how good he was in the ring. Literally one of the best wrestlers of all time kept out of the HOF because he fucked up the last couple days of his life. So what. If convicted rapist (and non-wrestler) Mike Tyson is in there then why can't they overlook what Benoit did in his private life?

They didn't air a two hour tribute to Mike Tyson the night after he raped somebody.

At some point they should induct Benoit. What he did at the end of his life was terrible, but he tried quitting the business to start his own wrestling school before the WWE lured him back to win the championship. IF he never did what he did at the end of his life there would be more fatal sports injuries and athletes being used beyond their physical limits today.
>>
Only faggot neckbeards think this murderer should be anywhere near the Hall of Fame.

The HOF is not a meritocracy and it means nothing. Was Benoit a great worker? He sure was, I think everyone knows that. Does it matter at all?

NO.


WWE doesn't have to acknowledge anything like this cunt. They are 100% right to have redacted him from history. Everyone that wants to jerk off to his ring work still can but why anyone thinks WWE are somehow obliged to keep his memory alive are morons at best.

He choked his kid and wife out until they died. UNFORGIVABLE.

this.
plus wwe is a company with a big brand reputation and want to keep itself from looking bad. anytime someone affiliated with them does something bad it's gonna get scrubbed from history, regardless of who, because thats what companies do when they have to protect brand safety.

They did it when benoit offed himself and his family, they did it when Hogan went off about niggers. If John Cena was ousted as a wifebeater on national television tomorrow ytou could bet your ass wwe would cut all ties and act like the man never existed.

i agree that what he did was unforgivable, but not because two people died. What he did was unforgivable because what he did resulted in the complete sterilization and blandening of the business. He ruined the industry and he shouldn't be inducted into the industry's top hall of fame because of that.
>>
>>1081039
>When will WWE actively promote a murderer
Never
>>
>>1081039
Probably because it stopped being his private life. I mean, they have the Fabulous Moolah in there and she was a serial sex offender, so it's not about morality. Moolah's crimes never became a big story, so she can be a revered role model. Benoit was negative press, so they won't touch him.

Because you can't talk about Benoit anymore without remembering that he killed his family. Ideally we could forget what he did and look at his amazing wrestling career, but that ain't happening.

I think Jericho explains pretty well why Benoit should not be in the HoF and never will be.
>>
It's hard to forgive a guy that murdered his family but it's painfully obvious he was suffering from CTE

If he were in the NFL he'd be in the Hall of Fame.
>>
Let's jump in the Benoit bandwagon again! Man, forget about him, already... One of the main reasons WWE chose not to talk about him anymore is because before he did what he did, he was consuming some kind of drug that made him end up doing what he did. He consumed that drug while being under contract with WWE, which is a violation of one of the terms and conditions of getting a WWE Contract, and is not to consume any kind of substance during the whole period you're under a contract with them. They didn't want that shit to make a huge scandal because that shit would have put WWE under a lot of heat. Benoit is the past, he has no future... Stop crying about him. You didn't give a fuck about him when he was alive, did you?
>>
WWE was going under a lot of heat because of the use of steroids, and PAM! Here comes this douchebag and kills his family and himself, right at the moment the steroids topic was around WWE making such a huge scandal. Now you get why Vince erased the shit outta him?
>>
>>1081317
Snuka, Scott Hall, and Vern Gagne are all in the HOF
>>
The Hall of Fame is completely meaningless.
>>
Because his actions that resulted into his death and his families death will overshadow his wrastling career. Do I think how WWE handled the situation was done incorrectly? Yes, do I think he should be almost completely "removed" from WWE history? I think they should still have videos of his matches, but erasing history is just never a good thing to do.
>>
>>1084806
Verne gagne wasnt a murderer, he was an alzheimers afflicted old wreck

Much like benoit

>>1081039
Never. Even if it turns out he went a better way, he has the reputation of a murderer.

Benoit: Technical skill, intensity, ring psychology
RVD: legitimately exciting for two or three years before people realized his offense is all retarded
Angle: can get heat with the best of them, ring general, hilarious when need be, legitimately talented
>>
>>1085945
Was never a huge Benoit fan but his grappling and technical ability are unmatched. He has a good ring presence in the way he moves and the aggression in his offense.

Don't get the appeal of RVD too much. I guess he's popular since he innovated a few moves and he's a relic of ECW. Also muh flips.

Angle is based all round. He's good at grapppling and wrestling amateur style, he has good ring psychology and he's good on the mic. I don't think there's anyone as good both in the ring and on the mic as he is.
>>
>>1081130

>He choked his kid and wife out until they died. UNFORGIVABLE.

As a result of legitimate, legal defense level mental illness brought about by Vince. Everything that happened is 100% on the head of the WWE, and that's why they don't want anyone remembering Benoit exists.

>>1081139

>plus wwe is a company with a big brand reputation and want to keep itself from looking bad

Exactly. As misguided as it is for them to give a shit about people who do not and will not ever give them money, Vince knows he's ultimately the one responsible for the shitshow that resulted from his consistent mistreatment of talent.
>>
>>1084806

I think they quietly [REDACTED] Snuka when he was arrested for that murder recently.
>>
>>1085490

Indeed. Calling this shit a Hall of Fame is an insult to Halls of Fame that actually make some effort to make sure only people who were actually GOOD at what they did are inducted.

Not the fucking Bushwhackers.

>>1081048

And frankly, that's a bigger honor.

Do you really think that The Fabolous Freebirds, Jaquline, and the Godfather will sell tickets? Half of the WWE fan nowadays don't know who the fuck are they. So no, fampai, it's not a business to sell tickets.
>>
>>1086320
Most of the people who go to the Hall of Fame ceremony buy the whole package that includes WrestleMania, the Hall of Fame Ceremony, and the Raw after WrestleMania. It's around $5000, and they sellout within hours of release.

Even if you're baiting. that's so fucked up. Especially considering one of them was a child. I feel sorry for you if you genuinely care more about car-crash, garbage wrestling than someone's life.

And on that "Blandening" here's a Jericho quote:
>"If you're a good performer, you make it good no matter what the rules are. I don't have to go out there and say 'son of a bitch' and get color and dump out-houses full of shit on Vince McMahon to get over.. It's your job as a performer to make it work."

WWE isn't shit cause there's not hardcore matches and constant chairshots to heads, you just don't like actual wrestling.
