WWE Superstar John Cena was asked during a fan Q&A in Australia about the reason why WWE doesn't acknowledged Chris Benoit publically following the 2007 murder of his wife and son, then suicide of himself two days later. Cena responded:
"Very difficult question, and I'll answer it like this. Often times, we get caught up in a person's ability and their performance - and this transcends WWE - this is a problem in sport. It is also a problem in entertainment. People will do bad things. But if they are good at what they do, sometimes those things are overlooked. I don't in believe that. I believe you should take ownership for your actions. All of them. Not just ones that are performed in front of an audience. I think our company's stance on the entire situation set a precedent for athletics, and a precedent for entertaining of taking ownership for your actions."
My Take: I rarely give an opinion on articles on WNS as I believe it should just be the facts reported, but I have taken the time to give my views on what John Cena said and how I view WWE's handling of the Benoit murder-suicide.
