Video: David Benoit talks his father working hurt, WWE killing his passion for Pro Wrestling, TNA
David Benoit appeared on Guru Talk for the third time, which you can watch below. During the interview, Benoit discussed the controversy with his Hart Legacy Wrestling promotion, not liking Lance Storm and more. Below are a few highlights:
His father working injured:
"My dad would go out there hurt every night. You get hurt and you go out there and perform every night. He gave it 120% every single night."
"I think there needs to another company that challenges WWE... You watch these matches these days, they're about 10-15 minutes these days? Half are talking half of the time. They don't even commentate the matches, which is sad in my eyes. The whole point for the commentators is to make the wrestlers look good in the ring and tell a story. You can hear them joking around on commentary these days, which is just a joke."
WWE killing his passion for wrestling:
"WWE you could say kinda killed my passion for wrestling. It's just not the same anymore. TNA on the other hand, they have wrestling. Just last week, when they had that Lethal Lockdown, [it was] James Storm and I forget against The Hardy Boys. Jeff was on top of the cage door, James Storm moves on top, hits him with the cowbell, Jeff fell off the door, hit his back on the steps [and] bounced up and hit the floor after... that was a huge nasty fall, man."
