It was reported that wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife and child were dead. Then in time, the complete extent of this tragedy was unidentified, and the WWE canceled its prepared live raw occasion and broadcast a unique Tribute Show from respect for the untimely end of Benoit’s family and his payments to the business. Now, as the details of this tragedy are being revealed, the WWE is being banged for honoring a murderer by media outlets as well as by the public. I think that when the choice was made to create Raw a Chris Benoit tribute program, the WWE was doing only what appeared to be respectful at that time. As even more information was uncovered, the WWE took a various and ideal position to their programming.
Tuesdays ECW and Fridays Smack down were devoted to all the followers and it was explained that no reference of Benoit would be made in those shows. In Australia, Raw is not shown up until Wednesdays; the tribute program was never screened here. Raw was not broadcast instead an apology was issued in behalf of the WWE and alternate programming was broadcast by Fox8. On Saturday a unique Raw was set up, once again dedicated to the WWE fans this edition of Raw showcased several of the Greatest Championship Matches over the previous year. As with ECW and Smack down, no reference of Benoit was made. I do not think it is fair that the WWE Fast Lane 2016 live stream is being offer such a tough time because of it is choice to air the tribute program. As specified in the past, at that point in time the WWE [and the world] did not recognize the full level of this tragedy.
They did what any other sporting program would have done had actually Benoit been a typical athlete pay homage to his profession. The complete extent of this misfortune was not made public until around 2/3’s through the original program of the Raw tribute. The WWE did the right thing by canceling delayed broadcasts of the tribute program and removed not only the homage on their web site yet additionally his Superstar web page and product from the WWE store. I believe that the WWE needs to be commended on just how they have handled this situation, not condemned for it. It is an extremely delicate situation and they have handled it well in spite of just what the media have actually claimed and implied about the industry and business.
