JR Q&A Highlights – Chris Benoit in the HOF, Why WWE Focuses Only on Main Events & Potential Off Season

– Below is the latest Q&A section from Jim Ross’ website with several highlights below…

On if there should be an off season in WWE: “I do not think that an off season is necessary in our biz. I do think that giving talents ample off time is imperative along with strict adherence to the Wellness Policy and stellar PT for injuries.”

On if Chris Benoit will ever go into the WWE Hall of Fame: I do not think that Benoit will ever be inducted into the WWE HOF.

On why WWE only focuses on the main events: “Those are a production or creative issue. Times change. I don’t know why that was gone away from but it is what it is.”

  • Yes, he does deserve it on the basis of being one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. But on the other hand, could you imagine if they actually DID induct him? Who would want to do it? What would they say? How would the crowd react? How would the media react?

    At the end of the day, we’re talking about someone who destroyed his own legacy by murdering his own wife and son. Yes, it has been proven, more or less, that he may have been driven to do it by dementia caused by too many concussions, causing permanent brain damage. But, that doesn’t change the fact that he did what he did. Had he only committed suicide, had he killed only himself, it would have been tragic, but it would have left his wrestling legacy intact, and he’d no doubt already be in.

    Sucks for Benoit, he definitely deserves it.
