Post WWE erases Benoit from the history books, Yet they allow Bryan do his taunts/moves?

For example, Bryan performs his double arm slash when shouting "NO" similar to Benoit's when signaling for the flying headbutt. That being said, Bryan also performs his signature moves - The crossface & flying headbutt even though this is proven to be critically crippling in terms of head injuries, like unprotected chair shots to the skull, which are banned from use. It all seems a little hypocritical to me, They erase Benoit from the history books, yet they're allowing certain competitors to apply his moves during in-ring performances, thus leading to the current audience remembering Benoit and the tragic incident that occurred, But they don't include his matches within official lists, DVDs and what not.

Just wondering, What's the IWC's take on this?

WWE allows it because they feel that if Bryan uses Benoit's mannerisms, the fans will begin to associate them with Bryan, rather than Benoit.

Chris Benoit did not invent the diving headbutt.

And Bryan doesn't do the crossface, he does the Labell Lock, it's clearly a different move.

And also, Bryan's "NO" taunt is completely different from Benoit's throat slit taunt.

Who's Chris Benoit?

I'm not talking bout' the throat slit , Benoit used to put both his hands on each shoulder and release them in a slash like fashion, after he'd climb up the top rope and attempt a flying headbutt. It's really similar to Bryan's "NO" taunt, If anyone has the image of this taunt, please do share.

After Benoit's headbutt, he would clearly roll about the ring in agony for a couple of seconds, I dunno what he was doing to elicit that result every time, but it's pretty fuckin' hard to watch nowadays. Bryan has no such problem with it.

As said above, Benoit's headbutt and (arguably but not really) crossface are now Bryan's. No reason to let Benoit murder those moves as well as his family.

They have not erased him, he is still there, they dont promote him, which is understandable.

As for the moves, Benoit was NOT the only one to do this, that "Taut" was done by many and was even a "finisher" taunt in some fighting games


the idea that WWE erased him is an internet myth, they have not, he is still there, still on recored, but they are not going to bring him up, its bad for bussnes

Fuck Rayfu, its time for a ban!

^ this.... they can't erase anything Benoit did in the WWE as much as they want
to erase him people saw him in there ring years ago and YES Benoit did have
fans so their not erasing him just not promoting a Damn thing of Benoits cause
of what he did.DB does'nt remind me of Benoit more of the goofy Kurt Angle character.
