The “Rabid Wolverine” Chris Benoit will likely never ever come up again on WWE TV and for good reason. For those of you living under a rock, WWE has made every attempt to erase Benoit from their website and he is not allowed to be mentioned on WWE programming because of the murder-suicide from 2007 where he killed his wife Nancy and son Daniel before killing himself.
Benoit was respected by wrestling fans and wrestlers in the locker room because he was an excellent wrestler and, by most accounts, he was a nice guy out of the ring. No one will know for sure what caused Benoit to commit those heinous acts in 2007 but the story was all over the news for weeks and WWE was heavily scrutinized and perceived to be a company that freely allowed wrestlers to take drugs.
The aftermath from the Benoit story caused WWE to drastically change their product. Their shows are now TV-PG because they want to soften the public perception and appeal to advertisers, they’ve implemented concussion testing, and their drug testing is stronger than it’s ever been.
