WWE and David Benoit


Hey Scott,

Chris Benoit's son David is obviously someone who has dreams of being a successful wrestler. I know he signed with RCW back in August, but really hasn’t been discussed since. He’s been training for a while, but has obviously hit some roadblocks along the
way due to his father, unfortunately.

Hypothetically, if he were to become good enough, do you see WWE giving him any sort of shot in their development system? Or do you think WWE would cower away from him due to any PR nightmares caused by his father’s name?

Unless he’s got more charisma than Hulk Hogan, there’s not enough upside in the world for WWE to risk the backlash. It’s totally unfair to him but that’s the business.
