Chris Jericho has taken to social media to respond to those criticizing him for dedicating his Wrestle Kingdom 12 match to “Fallen Brothers” Chris Benioit and Eddie Guerrero. In a post on his Instagram yesterday he posted fan art which had both Benoit and Guerrero behind him with the words "We" are "Back" - In a video on his facebook he defended his decision to dedicate to his friend Benoit:
"I get a couple smartass remarks here for an Instagram post that I put up of this great fan art that somebody drew of me with kind of the spirits of Eddie and Benoit behind me and I said I dedicate the match to those guys.
Yeah, I know, what Chris did. I think about it every single day. I was involved more than any one of you were. So trust me, I understand the horrible, horrible events that took place. I’ll never forgive it, I’ll never understand it - but I have my reasons for doing what I’m doing, so don’t anybody tell me, don’t anybody make smartass remarks about what I say and what I do...
Nobody tells me what to do, I have my reasons, and I think about the loss of Nancy Benoit and Daniel Benoit every single day. So that’s enough of that, I’ll never talk about it again."
