Kurt Angle mentions Chris Benoit during a press conference

Kurt Angle

It’s a known fact that WWE has scrapped off Chris Benoit from its history and the company does not even mention the name of the former World Champion in any manner during any WWE Event, televised or otherwise.

However, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle recently broke this taboo and named the former WWE superstar while talking about his various WrestleMania opponents.

Kurt was taking part in a WWE Press Conference to promote the upcoming WWE 2K18 video game while he mentioned Benoit. You can check out a video of the Press Conference below:

It’s worth noting that Kurt Angle faced Chris Benoit on WrestleMania X-Seven in a singles match where he came out victorious by grabbing his tights and pinning Benoit via a quick roll up.

Currently, it’s not known what is the reaction backstage about Kurt’s comments and whether or not officials are thinking to punish him in any way though we’ll update you on any development

    They had some classic matches.

    Complete non-issue. Making a big deal about it would be a causality-loop that would create the very problem they would be looking to avoid. So he said his name. BFD. Move on.

    By not allowing him to do live promos, and thus, rewarding the audience.

    What if it’s WWE’s fault for not “briefing” him when he was re-hired…?

    Glad to see Kurt mentioned him. Didn’t blow it out of the water and just kept it casual. I wish little things like this would happen more often.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    In what form could they punish him?!
