Re: CM Punk answers a question about WWE trying to erase Chris Benoit from history
Even though he lied, Punk did a pretty good job at handling the question. The average employee would have shit themselves trying to dodge it and change the subject and although I'm missing out on what was so funny about the youtube comment, I give it up to Punk in the way he responded. Vince gave the same answer back in 2009. The truth is, they are not 'erasing' Benoit for the most part (except when they don't acknowledge him being one of the guys that inducted Eddie to the Hall of Fame) but pretty much acting like he was a ghost that somehow has such a huge legendary career.
I think that contradicts Vince's comments when he said "It's okay to acknowledge him for historic purposes". I understand not promoting him as one of the greatest or whatever but I find it really stupid when they make articles on wwe.com about the U.S. Championship's history and just skip past every year when Benoit was involved or when they talk about unified titles and say "Kurt Angle was one half of the first ever WWE Tag Team Champions" (and Benoit gets cropped out of the freaking pictures). Don't be scared, it's freaking history being visited.
