    I know you really shouldn’t measure a Man by the acts of his Father and that kids gonna have a hard time getting booked because of what his Father did and honestly thats not fair to him.
    But still the idea of Chris Benoit’s son getting into his Fathers profession.
    I just don’t know if thats such a good idea you know.

      I agree its going to be hard for him to get booked because of what his father did, But I dont blame him for getting into the same profession as him. Just look at most of the guys wrestling today, they were just like him as kids in the back watching there fathers in the ring every night

      • BIG M

        Please Dont misunderstand me I wish the guy the best of luck but lets face facts here.
        The dark shadow his Father casts is not one he will ever be able to shake.
        Even outside the industry this poor guy will have a hard time getting by in life.
        People will always be whispering behind his back “you know that guys Dad was the Wrestler who went nuts and killed his wife and kid”.
        Society will only ever see him as a son of a murderer and as much as that is cruel and sad its something he’s going to have to find a way to distance himself from if he wants to get ahead in life and unfortunately thats just the dumb, sad and sick world we live in.
        If I were him I would avoid pro wrestling at all cost but if he thinks he can be a Wrestler than I hope he finds a way to make a go of it.

    Not sure how he’ll work, as others have mentioned his father’s legacy will always be over his and the industries head; but aside from that the guy looks fairly tiny (not just in height either) he doesn’t look to have much muscle mass and would more then likely have to do a tag team, bulk up, or will have to look at X division level success.
