John Cena on why WWE erased Chris Benoit from their history books

John Cena is a man with great poise and he’s a brilliant public speaker, to say the least. He was scheduled for this week’s WWE house shows but was pulled from the tour in order to do a few promotional spots in Australia. After all, when WWE needs to send someone to be the face of the company, Cena is always one of the first people they call.

One of the stops featured a Q&A session where John Cena was asked why WWE has taken Chris Benoit out of their history books since the tragedy surrounding his death. Cena was very precise in his reply and it was extremely tactful. If anyone’s going to answer a question like this it needs to be John Cena because most other Superstars might stray from the topic completely.

John Cena really put over WWE’s ability to wash Benoit’s memory from their history due to the controversy surrounding his horrible death and the murder of his wife and child. This is why WWE calls John Cena first whenever they need someone to field a bunch of questions from the general public.

“Very difficult question, and I’ll answer it like this” John Cena replied. “Often times, we get caught up in a person’s ability and their performance, and this transcends WWE, this is a problem in sport. It is also a problem in entertainment. People will do bad things. But if they are good at what they do, sometimes those things are overlooked. I don’t believe in that. I believe you should take ownership for your actions. All of them. Not just ones that are performed in front of an audience. I think our company’s stance on the entire situation set a precedent for athletics and a precedent for entertaining of taking ownership for your actions.”

    Cena’s answer may have been precise, but he didn’t actually answer the question.

  • I know, right? I have no idea what is going on. I just started writing here a month or so ago. There is some kind of communication breakdown going on here, but I’m working on it. Hopefully this won’t happen anymore.

    Aaron Varble wants to erase Robert Lentini’s article from the day before he posted this.

    Plagiarism, reusing phrases in every article… I feel like I’m back in my middle school English class.

    He wasn’t erased, they just don’t mention him. And doing the same article twice isn’t very appealing.

    I feel like you guys are double posting the same article more and more frequently now. Starting to get pretty old fast…
