John Cena Gives An Honest Answer On Why The WWE Does Not Acknowledge Chris Benoit (VIDEO)
WWE Superstar John Cena is currently in Australia performing in “An Evening with John Cena.” While he was in the middle of a show, one fan took the opportunity to ask why the WWE does not acknowledge Chris Benoit’s history in the company.
Cena proceeded to give an honest answer to the question:
“Very difficult question, and I’ll answer it like this. Often times, we get caught up in a person’s ability and their performance – and this transcends WWE – this is a problem in sport. It is also a problem in entertainment. People will do bad things. But if they are good at what they do, sometimes those things are overlooked. I don’t believe in that. I believe you should take ownership for your actions. All of them. Not just ones that are performed in front of an audience. I think our company’s stance on the entire situation set a precedent for athletics, and a precedent for entertaining and taking ownership for your actions.”
It’s been 10-years since former WWE star Chris Benoit, over a 3-day period, killed his wife Nancy Benoit and strangled their 7-year-old son Daniel before hanging himself.
