Was at Real Canadian Wrestling show tonight (August 29th, post wasn’t approved until Sept 2) in Edmonton and this guy showed p. They then announced David is the newest member of their roster roster and he will be wrestling for them in the future. Should be interesting to see what he really can bring to the table.

David Benoit hinted at his interest in following in his father’s footsteps. Chris Benoit was regarded as one of the greatest pro wrestlers on the planet prior to his tragic death. Hopefully, David Benoit can prove what he has in the ring. We will continue keeping track of his progress.


Benoit also trained at Canadian Strong Style Wrestling Academy in recent memory. You can check out out a photo below that he took with Josh Alexander.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
