Madison Rayne gone from GFW?, John Cena on why WWE doesn’t acknowledge Chris Benoit (video)

Madison Rayne gone from GFW?

It would appear that Madison Rayne is no longer a part of Global Force Wrestling.

GFW has updated it’s roster section on and Ranye is no longer listed as an active Knockout on the site. Her profile page was also deleted from the site.

Rayne has only wrestled once for GFW this year. She has mostly been co-hosting With This Ring… with her husband, Josh Mathews. Here is the most recent episode of the show, which hyped last week’s Slammiversary PPV.

John Cena on why WWE no longer acknowledges Chris Benoit in a historical context

Chris Benoit murdered his wife and son in 2007 and then took his own life two days later. WWE has since removed references to Chris Benoit in the company. His matches are still on the WWE Network, but his name does not appear when trying to search or skip to the match he was in. A fan asked Cena why doesn’t acknowledge Benoit in a historical context during a Q&A in Australia and below is Cena’s response:

“Very difficult question, and I’ll answer it like this. 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 in believe 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.”

John Cena had a great answer to why WWE no longer acknowledge Chris Benoit

    Eh? How could Benoit take ownership of his actions?
    And how does mentioning his name mean what he did is overlooked?
    History is history. And those matches happened.
    No point trying to pretend he did not exist.

    And lets face it, WWE has had a history over overlooking things. They overlooked the fact that Austin was a wife beater. They overlooked the fact that Mike Tyson bit a guys ear off and was a convicted rapist. They overlooked Lesnars failed external drugs test after dismissing Billy Gunn for the same thing.

    I guess they only overlook things if they think the person is a big draw.
