Is it hard for you to watch footage of Chris Benoit?

Whether it be him wrestling or a backstage segment or him cutting a promo? Do you feel weird doing that? I was watching a backstage segment with Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle and that "incident" didn't enter my mind. In fact, I find Chris Benoit to be a better talker than most people give him credit for and that particular segment is a good example. I haven't watched a Benoit match in a long time, though. What if you play wrestling video games? Do you refuse to play as Benoit and do you avoid playing against Eddie Guererro? I've played as Chris Benoit a few times, but I usually don't wrestle against Eddie, no matter who I'm wrestling as. I will play as Eddie G, though.

nope.sometimes i do watch chris benoit matches but it never affected me.but with the end of chris and eddie,something else left from WWE.both of them were great wrestlers and no one can deny that.most of the time i get the urge to see one of the many locks benoit and eddie use against their opponent.my all time favourite is that criss-cross versus angel lock match.but these days its all about hitting,no technical locks.sometimes its pathetic to see micheals and john cena imitating the cross face and chavo isnt doing a good job of eddies moves.2 wrestlers that can never be replaced ever in wwe.i miss both of them very much

Yeah, I miss them too. I agree that Cena shouldn't be trying to be a technical wrestler with his STF.

I don't find it hard to watch Benoit footage. He was great in the ring and I really enjoy watching his matches on the dvds. That incident that happened never enters my mind when I am watching his matches. I knew that Benoit was not himself at that time. He still needed work on his speaking but still he was a great wrestler.

Right. That's what I believe. He didn't know what he was doing until it was too late.
