  1. WWE Forums is giving away a copy of WWE 2K18 for any platform! More info: WWE 2K18 Giveaway (PS4, Xbox One, Steam)
  1. Not sure what to think of this, it's just footage I suppose, but it's cool that they don't have to censor shit all the time now. Oh, so that announcement that was happening in Vegas looks to be like it's the WWE Network. Thoughts?
  2. I don't see the point of the 'warning' but ok.

    does the NFL show a warning before showing OJ highlights? no, because OJ the amazing RB and OJ the killer are easily distinguishable. same with Benoit the amazing performer and Benoit the deranged killer.

  3. That's a good point.
  4. I'm just wondering, what exactly with the advisory even say? They're just showing his matches, not him killing his family or his hung body. Unless they're putting a warning label on all material that has headshots and diving headbutts to say not to try at home, but then that just wouldn't be on him. Glad they're gonna show his matches, since he did win a main event at a Wrestlemania, but the whole warning label is a stupid idea.

  5. exactly. why constantly bring up egregious things he did when what you are watching has nothing to do with that
  6. Warning, you are about to view footage of a wrestler who killed his family. This is him wrestling though, not killing his family. Please, do not kill your family while watching some guy who did kill his family, but is not killing them here. Parental Advisory is suggested. *shows Chris Benoit and John Cena putting soap in Paul Heyman's mouth*

  7. I guess it would look insensitive to be promoting him/making money off him without acknowledging the incident.
  8. I wouldn't mind if they never aired any footage of the creepy child murdering fuck ever again, but the warning is alright.
  9. hope it's OK to get a little off topic.. Does anyone know what other kind of programming this network would have? I've heard talks about this WWE Network for a while, but is it just old shows n docmentaries?
  10. Kinda glad to hear that he'll be a part of it.
  11. I don't agree with them doing this. Chris Benoit was certainly a good athlete, but the bottom line is he's a child killer. No matter what he's accomplished, it's near impossible for me to associate him with anything but that.

  13. good heat
  14. I actually wouldn't have a problem with this cause I don't really care that he killed some people.
  15. I look at it like he had a sickness. His brain wasn't right, and the WWE played a big part in that. So anyone thinking Benoit should be avoided should probably avoid WWE altogether.

  16. Think about the stress WWE places on someone. Especially someone like Benoit. He was probably always on the road with WWE and all the stress that comes with WWE like Vince's opinion and shiz.
  17. The neurologists who examined his brain said it was one of the most damaged brains they have ever seen. It was comparable to an 85 year old with advanced Alzheimer disease. Not excusing what he did but the dudes brain was mush
