Democrats Bring in Benoit’s Dad, Linda Comments on His Feelings

Posted by Marc Middleton in WWE News
Monday, October 25th, 2010

– Democrats in Connecticut brought in Michael Benoit, the father of , to speak out against WWE and at a press conference. Benoit said he was there to “change an industry that is out of control.”

Benoit later said that Vince and Linda McMahon have one reason that motivates them – money. Benoit also said everything the McMahons do is based on public relations. “The only reason that woman wants to go to Washington is to protect the dollars that WWE makes, to head off any attempt to regulate their industry.” said Benoit.

Linda spoke to reporters shortly before Benoit’s press conference and said the motive is clear on why he was speaking out.

“I think Mr. Blumenthal has really tried to focus in only saying that WWE does not treat its performers well, when in fact, WWE treats its performers incredibly well and it wants to make sure that those men and women in the ring are protected,” she said.

“I can truly understand the pain of a father who has not only lost a child but a son who was involved in a heinous crime of killing his wife and his son,” McMahon said to reporters. “I can understand that his feelings are bitter, sad, wants to find answer and would like to also find someone to blame.”

Benoit responded: “Maybe I come off as a bitter father. I’m determined to make change in this industry so we don’t have people dropping dead at the age of 30.”

    It’s hard to say who’s fault it is because wwe let talents back then use steroids an nocks to the head in the ring wouldn’t help ….. but I respected benoit as a wrestler but he screwed up as a human but we all make mistakes an we all do bad things at times but not as bad as what benoit did but we all deserve a second chance

    I would be the first one to blame Vince for things that are his fault. Is it Vince’s fault Benoit took steroids and did moves that caused himself head trauma?? NO. Was it Vince’s fault Owen Hart died? YES. I like and respected Benoit until all this went down. His dad needs to stop blaming everyone else. So Jerry you can blow me because it’s people like CHRIS BENOIT that give wrestling a bad name

    there is no need for fags like you to take shit out on the wrestlers family no matter who the wrestler is cause you know damn well if your kid were to do something like that you would be doing the same damn thing
