Reason Why David Benoit Was Banned From WWE
David Benoit, son of Chris Benoit recently sat down with Chris Van Vliet and talked about his relationship with Chris Jericho, his love for wrestling and the tragic demise of his father. He added that he attended a WWE event in Edmonton Canada, but was banned from going backstage because he was wearing an AEW Sweatshirt.
He said, “They thought Jericho bought it for me. They thought it was a rib. It was because I went to an AEW show. It blows my mind, bro. I had to make a few phone calls. I was trying to talk to someone, but they never got back to me for a good four to five months. Everything’s fine now, I talked to their lawyers. I’m welcomed everywhere now, we’re good.”
Benoit went on to say that WWE’s product has declined over the last few years, while showering AEW with praise for their efforts over the last year or so. It will only be a matter of time before David’s wrestling career takes off, and it will probably be with AEW, seeing as Le Champion, Chris Jericho has always looked out for the young star’s interests.
