Chris Benoit's son, David says he wants to join AEW

Jeez I hope AEW doesn't go and sign him I mean he may be a good guy and wrestler but his likeness to his dad and last name will be an issue.

David Benoit, the son of Chris Benoit, says he’d like to join All Elite Wrestling.


Benoit was interviewed for a recent episode of the Pro and Bro Wrestling Podcast with Fred Rosser.

At one point in the conversation, Benoit touches on his time training to wrestle with Lance Storm. Rosser – aka former WWE star Darren Young – asks if the 26-year-old has been training as of late and he replies, “I’m just messing around in the ring right now with a couple of guys from AEW.”

David did not get into specifics on who he’s been working with, but noted he has a close relationship with Chris Jericho and attended both Double or Nothing and All Out. Benoit also said he’s had gear made for when he eventually debuts somewhere.

“I want to go to AEW one hundred percent,” he told Rosser when asked where he’d like to wrestle. “I love AEW. I love what they do for the boys. Take care of them.”

You'd think he might have changed his in-ring name by now.

What is better than winning gold at the Paralympics?
Having legs.

There is no reason he shouldn't get work. He should not be punished for his fathers actions. It's messed up if you think about it.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Its almost creepy how much he looks like Chris...however that shouldnt stop companies from hiring him. I absolutely agree with a name change and he should understand that. He nor the company should mention his father or linage but that shouldnt keep him from getting a job.

He shouldn't be blamed for his father's action

I think he might have an easier career in a mask and a name change. I feel bad for him as his father's awful actions should not fuck up his life.



Spoiler for Don't be sad it is over, be happy it happened:

luchadores are still able to hide their identity and the promotions that hire them get away with it

david should do the same and if they feel the need to take it off or if he is discovered then release him

just keep in mind that NO-ONE is obligated to give him a job in the first place ok?

its best to boycott an unsalvageable situation, hence why I don't watch certain promotions anymore

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

Re: Chris benoit's son, David says he wants to join AEW

To deny him opportunities because of his last name would be holding him accountable for his dad's actions, which would be a real shame. I understand why people would be critical of him using the Benoit name, but also prefer to view it as an opportunity to move forward.

He's not Chris. Judge him as an individual.

I wouldn't from a PR or business move hire him. If so, mask and name change and we are good.
