Another WWE OnDemand tidbit:

For the first time since I've had this channel, there was a Benoit sighting on WWE programming. They're showing Nitro from September '97, and the four horseman come out for a promo in response to NWO mocking Arn Anderson's retirement the week before. Benoit never speaks (obviously) but hes there, and on camera for a decent amount of time. They do edit out his name though, there was one time where Flair is mentioning the horseman members by name and "Benoit" is cut out.

I think at some point they need to stop pretending that he didn't exist, maybe they're slowly getting there.

I have on demand also, he has been shown a few times during run ins on nitro. But like u said they don't mention him by name. They also cut his matches out of the ppv

no they've done it before. He's in things they just can't cut him out of like battle royals and promos he's in the back ground but they aren't going to reference or show him

Yeah, Benoit's last match was the best, when he suffocated his kid to kill him.

I'd rather them just air the show as it was back then in its original context.
