Could the son of the late Chris Benoit be eyeing a future in the world of mixed martial arts?
An image has surfaced of David Benoit standing inside the cage with reigning IWGP Tag Team Champion and former WWE talent Davey Boy Smith, Jr. (who has been intermittently training for a possible career in mixed martial arts since his time in WWE), presumably during a sparring session.
The Wrestling Observer reported recently that Benoit was interested in following in his late dad’s footsteps by becoming a professional wrestler. Benoit, as well as the son of Scott Hall, Cody Hall, have been training in hopes of joining the New Japan Pro Wrestling Dojo. It has been said that Benoit’s ultimate goal is to become a WWE Superstar.
