David Benoit, the 27 year old son of Chris Benoit remembers the good times he had with his father. He wants to carry on The Wolverine’s legacy and wrestle as Chris Benoit, Jr as well. He even has the gear.
One thing Benoit spoke about with Chris Van Vliet was how WWE washed his father’s name from their history. He understood why they would do this, but he still wants to see his father inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.
David Benoit said that he’s “working on” getting Chris Benoit inducted. If it does happen David said he wants to be the one inducting his late father. He can even picture how it would feel to go out on that stage during the big ceremony.
“I picture the moment. When that music hits, goosebumps, goosebumps every time. Every time [you’d] hear that theme song, you knew you were getting a fucking 5-star match.”
It couldn’t have been easy for David Benoit to grow up in his father’s shadow, especially after the horrific events surrounding his death. We’ll have to see if WWE will ever reconsider their position on Chris Benoit’s memory, but it doesn’t seem like they will be bringing much attention to him in the immediate future.
