    riiiiiiiiight benoits brain was so bad..yet he could book flights,find his way to arenas remember how matches were supposed to go and so forth.by your logic all serial killers are good people also i mean most of them are crazy so by your logic they should be rewarded also.

    @jim The brain is a magnificent thing. Beat it against the inside of your skull enough times, and it doesn’t work so well. It’s appropriately referred to as a tragedy for a reason. Chris would not have done that in his right mind.

  • jim

    @ justin..benoit is scum child killer im glad he isnt on the list.

  • chilly

    i’m surprised they didnt throw in cena as well, even the hell’s gate as well

  • Justin Sane

    Still, guys…
    Despite what he did, he was still the best.
    They just can’t pretend that he never existed.

  • Zach

    LOL @ Benoit.

    Vince would rather close down WWE altogether than mention his name.

  • damkat

    Did you forget the WWE has forgotten about Benoit. He will never be in any WWE best of.

  • Justin Sane
