Chris Jericho’s DVD is going to be released on 2015, as we know that it will be a WWE project. WrestlingDVDnews.com recently reported that Chris Benoit will not feature in Jericho’s DVD, Jericho said on his Talk is Jericho podcast;
“Putting together a couple of my DVDs, and we’re working on the second one right now, that’s probably a combined total of about fifty matches that are on there between those two DVDs but I could never include a Benoit match. One, I don’t think I’m allowed to. Two, I don’t know if I’d want to, and that was one of the greatest moments of my career. Absolutely one of my favorite opponents and probably a dozen classic matches that I’d want to put on there, including the ladder match we had at the Royal Rumble in 2001, which I think is one of the best ladder matches of all time, totally forgotten because of Chris and the fact they don’t show any of his matches anymore.
Also too what was voted the best match in Raw history by a lot of people, Jericho and Benoit vs. Triple H and Austin, so famous for being the night H tore his quad during the match, the crowd going bananas and the first time anybody had vanquished the evil Steve Austin and Triple H. It was a huge night in WWE history, a huge moment in the history of the Tag Team Championships and a huge moment in the history of my career, and I can’t ever see that match really. I can’t watch that match. I think I’ve watched it once and it’s good, it’s a great classic five star match, but it’s always tainted when I see Chris Benoit…”
Former WWE star Billy Jack Haynes sued WWE in federal court for “egregious mistreatment of its wrestlers for its own benefit, as well as its concealment and denial of medical research and evidence concerning traumatic brain injuries suffered by WWE wrestlers.”
“Under the guise of providing ‘entertainment,’ WWE has, for decades, subjected its wrestlers to extreme physical brutality that it knew, or should have known, caused long-term irreversible bodily damage, including brain damage,” according to the lawsuit filed by Portland attorneys Steve D. Larson and Joshua L. Ross of the firm Stoll Stoll Bernie Lokting & Schlachter. “For most of its history, WWE has engaged in a campaign of misinformation and deception to prevent its wrestlers from understanding the true nature and consequences of the injuries they have sustained. WWE’s representations, actions, and inactions have caused its wrestlers to suffer from death, long-term debilitating injuries, lost profits, premature retirement, medical expenses, and other losses as alleged herein.”
