Uhm, from what I can tell, you didn't comment on this thread. Unless you had a different name back then.

Oh, he was in it a lot, you must have missed it. I stand by what I said too -

I reread most of that thread yesterday. That thread does a good job of showing just how wild that whole event was. I think we forget, or at least I forget how much everyone loved Benoit, the performer.

I had seen very little of Benoit's stuff after that day until I started rewatching ECWs. He's so damn good in the ring. I haven't seen anybody be able to do what he did in there, which is sort of the catch. He is so violent at times that watching him in hindsight makes you sit back and go woah. His awkward promos don't help him looking back either. None of this is warning signs of course, but we just fell in love with a strange little man who was clearly roided out of his brain, (which is also funny because their are multiple threads here with people 100% convinced otherwise.). I also stand by a post I made in the original thread that all those shots to the head, especially seeing them now couldn't have helped.

Seeing poor Nancy .. oh Woman ole Woman won't you marry me now. You don't get to see female characters like that anymore.

That poor kid.

It's interesting to look at The 7 and see what was going on. The WWE just came off a terrible PPV where there was a lot of disappointment over no Benoit, while Vince was starting a death angle nobody but him wanted to see.

Crazy crazy sad stuff. I don't think we know what made Benoit snap that night. It probably doesn't matter. Going back and looking at the facts of the case and the days leading up to it still give me chills. I don't think I would have felt this way if it were any other athlete, star or wrestler. For some reason this guy doing this terrible thing seemed to cut a little bit deeper.

Once again we learned that Vince can weather any storm.

IJ and I recently watched Royal Rumble 2004, now known as "the time #1 won that we can't talk about." I wasn't sure about whether to go ahead and watch it...we picked it because John Cena was on the Network graphic, but I decided not to say anything and to go ahead with it. IJ had already known that the HBK/HHH Last Man Standing match ended with neither man standing, but she didn't know how the Rumble turned out and when Benoit eliminated Big Show for the win, she was actually excited for him. And she knows how it all ended up turning out.

Life is strange.

I was thinking about this, reading all those old post as I was not a visitor here back then. What really ended the WWe TV-14 Era? Was it that, or was it the young fans overwhelming love of John Cena?

It was the desire to attract sponsors. They were finding business just wouldn't want to place their ads when they could end up next to objectionable content, so they changed the rating. They were headed that way before Benoit.

On a side note.

How was the "Vince is dead" storyline supposed to have played out?

It was supposed to be a murder mystery type storyline, accusations flying, then Vince was just going to show up one Raw and say "I faked my death just to see how y'all would react and who was REALLY on my side!"

So yeah.



I'm Charlie Owens, good night, and good luck.

I think landing the big Mattel toy deal locked in the no wiggle room PG decree. They went from a Jericho/Michaels grisly bloodbath on PPV to a blood-free Hell in a Cell match in the span of a month.

Vince faked his death with the help of his illegitimate son, Ken Kennedy McMahon, to steal some nebulous Control of the Power of the Company macguffin. Vince and Kennedy feud with babyfaces Triple H, Stephanie, and Shane. They ended up using the same story beats for the "Randy Orton punts the McMahons, HHH to the rescue" Mania feud in early 2009.
