Will Chris Benoit be forgotton about?

In your honest opinion will new fans in 20 years even know who Benoit was or did he completely erase himself from the history books? Alot of people tend to think this will happen but with the internet and media outlets like Youtube etc I just can't ever see this happening outside WWE television.

Re: Will Chris Benoit be forgotton about?

Not if i have anything to fucking say about it.

Seriously though. He was the greatest in ring competitor that has ever walked the face of the earth.

Also, people like my fine self, are very passionate about his work and keeping the memory alive.

Even good ol Booker made sure to remind WWE "Oh yeah, that dude existed"

If they bother to look him up sure

I mean its the same as today. A lot of wrestlers have been lost to the ages unless youre willing to do the legwork and look them up

No. You just can't erase his negative impact,. In 20 years he will be reguarded one of the main factors of the wwe going for a softer product.
Forgotten...no way.

...

Your kidding right? baseball is Americas past time, and while in rec ent years it has gone down in popularity, there was a time where it WAS the sport, and baseball was the place to be
kids got cards non stop etc, even then they did not know of the guys of the past.
I was just making a point, even the fans of baseball tend not to know them

same for wrestling, how many fans know some of the legends of times long past?

it happens all the time, unless you activly look for the guy your not going to know much about him.
