That's a nice "Cerebus the Aardvark" impersonation he's got going there ...

How many people have had surgeries after Benoit "injured" them for booking purposes? We've had JBL and Helms in the past month, and I recall Mark Henry had his shoulder worked on about two years ago after a match with Benoit.

And they say Benoit's the best guy to work with because he's so safe in the ring.

Isn't it ironic, dontcha think?

Thing is, they were all injured *BEFORE* the match with Benoit.

They just used the match wioth Benoit as an excuse to get them off TV. And to keep up his keyfabe reputation of "The Canadian Crippler"

Which is why the word injured is in quotation marks. He's becoming the alibi for surgeries. I'm asking how many people for whom he's provided this out.

Trouble is, you never see the announcers talk about Benoit's victim list. By the time JBL and Helms have healed nobody will ever mention the cause of those injuries again. I'd all but forgotten about him "crippling" Mark Henry, which is crazy considering that--in kayfabe--Henry was MIA for nearly two years.

This is not to say they aren't pushing Benoit enough, but it's weird how they don't take advantage of this. They can remember Ric Flair's back injury 20 years ago and Undertaker's Wrestlemania streak, but not this? Heck, if they're so interested in sticking it to TNA, have Cole and Tazz regale Smackdown viewers with the story of how Benoit got his nickname at Sabu's expense.

I remember in the spring of 2000 they had Benoit slam a car door on Tazz's arm to explain his downtime. When Tazz came back he pulled a swerve by turning heel and going out of his way to not attack Benoit, so nothing really came of it.

However, a lot of these guys are guys they hope to build up again. They don't necessarily want to remind the viewers that Mark Henry, a guy who seems to be remotely related to the title picture at the moment, was put out of action by the current US champion.

But that said, if Henry's first post-WM program hypothetically is with Benoit, it can always be used as specific motivational fodder to justify the feud. If that were to be the case, it would make more sense to hold onto that nugget of continuity for when they'd actually need it.

Off the top of my head, Edge also had a shoulder injury, and Benoit sent him off to the DL. In that case, though, I think they acknowledged that there was a pre-existing injury that Edge was trying to work through, and that Benoit aggravated to the point that he couldn't. I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of any off-hand.

I'm sure that someone remembers that it happened, and I'm sure they will bring it up later on if it's needed. That's what the WWE uses backstory for: not for continuity, but to add fuel to angles when it's convenient.

They mentioned Helms' injury prior to the match with Benoit, because they talked about how awful it'd be to take the Crossface on an already broken nose. Which it probably is. Ouch!

As far as I know, it's still gone. If it's back up, what's the URL? www.onlineonslaught.com still redirects to some spam site. I need my Scaia too! B^)
