I was a full on “Push the Cruisers!” wanker up until that point. It gave me a whole new appreciation for the guys I had previously dismissed as “lazy” and “in it for the money”. If you can get bigger reaction doing a promo and three moves than giving yourself brain damage then fair fucking play to you. That’s what wrestling should be after all: A show. It’s also made me more conscious of the bias in wrestling journalism. From all accounts now, Benoit was a violent bully backstage but that never got reported at the time. Instead he was simply a “locker room leader” while all the bad shit got blamed on JBL and Bob Holly. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
