Benoit probably would've been retired by now.... The man's intensity was parallel to nobody. When you watched his matches, he made you believe it was real.

I think he would've had an ECW and WHC reign in him, then HOF. I could also have seen Benoit on Tough Enough doing Bill DeMott's job, except being hardcore about the training.

To those who say his Mic skills sucked, he didn't need mic skills for his character. The fact he acted and looked like he was going to murder his opponents in the ring was enough to get him over. And if you ask anyone who watched wrestling during Benoit's era, and he'd be in their top pics of favourite wrestlers.

But yeah, they would've primarily used him as the guy to bring the new stars to the top.

Where would Chris Benoit be today?

Where would WWE be today?...

Think about it, the resulting changes to the industry that occurred because of what you've asked me not to mention.

There may have still been a come down on steroid use but it wouldn't have been as thorough, shit, it might not have happened at all.
Also, I think there would have been an entirely different approach to the WWE's PG initiative. Instead of basic PG I think there would have been PG13 and maybe even tv14 still for WWE's PPVs.

But getting onto your question, where would Benoit be? To be realistic him living would mean his mental problems were caught and diagnosed and he received the help he needed before anything happen. If that happened I guess that'd mean he'd be either fully retired by now or working a part time schedule like HBK did for so long and Undertaker is doing now.

where would Chris Benoit be today, forsure bound for the Hall of Fame, maybe another title run, I heard he was sent to the ECW and was spotted to win the title to help bring up the talent in that part cause like everyone said he could make anyone look good in the ring, yeah him loosing the MVP 2 out of 3 matches really took away from his credibilties as a guy who looked like a power ranger beat someone like Benoit then he was sent to ECW, not sure, He had the ability to main event or mid card and still look good.

some of the guys now like shamus and cena would of been good feuds with him, be like what if Andrea the Giant was around, think of how the matches against bigshow, Kali and other big men

I don't want to piss anyone off with this, Bt it is my honest opinion on the matter, and I refuse to put it any other way. I enjoyed Chris Benot's career as much as anyone and his match at WM X7 with Kurt Angle is my absolute favorite match of all time. So, please don't take this as a negetive, it's just how i see it...

I would hope he would have retired by now, as has been stated numerous times already, his style for taking hard bumps and wrestling full tilt all the time would have cut his career short. I can't see him having wrestled more than 2 or 3 years more than he did. The sad truth is, and I can't believe I'm saying this, He probably would be dead anyway. I loved Chris Benoit's entire career, I've seen tapes of him from Japan, and if it weren't for Arn Anderson, HE could've been the Enforcer of the 4 Horsemen. Unfortunately, Much like Eddy Guerrero (yes, that's how he spelled in in WCW), He packed on the muscle during his time in WWE, and that couldn't have done his heart any favors. The only difference being that he would be fully apprecited by the entire WWE community, not just us here in the IWC. He would have had a proper tribute, a ficticious Bust in the ficticious Hall Of Fame, and the CRIPPLER CROSSFACE would be referred to as such.

Rest in Peace, Crippler. We still Miss you, No matter what Vince does!!

I really don't understand all the people who think Chris Benoit was that bad on the mic...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNgwbrJa06M


Don't get me wrong, he was no Dusty Rhodes or anything, but he wasn't bad by any means. His promos weren't filled with jokes or this or that, they were straight to the point and spot on with his gimmick. He was a guy that would kick your ass and demanded respect, and him acting any other way during his promos would have been detrimental to his character and thus, would have been bad.


Now onto the original post...

Benoit would have been an upper midcard guy used to build guys for the main event or to help establish main eventers who needed credibility. Unfortunately for WWE right now, they really don't have alot of guys like this right now to build stars which is why when guys get pushes, we don't buy into them. You can't just take somebody who's beating guys like Evan Bourne one week and then suddenly expect them to be taken seriously as they face John Cena. There has to be steps in between and Chris would have been a huge part of that.

I think Chris Benoit would probably have that Chris Jericho type role. There to put the younger guys over and make them look good/credible. Possibly even a Triple H/Shawn Michaels/Ric Flair type of role.

However, I do not think he would still be the top guy he used to be today. His body would of been way too warn down by now, especially from all those Diving Headbuts.

Benoit would have won the ECW Championship at Night of Champions in 2007. Then he would have been a veteran helping put over guys like Punk or Morrison. By the time Christian and Matt Hardy were on ECW Benoit would likely have returned to the main roster and gone on to win a few more world titles. It's a shame what happened because as a result he was not around to help ECW as a brand and all the younger guys who came up through it. A World Championship match against guys like Edge or Jericho at Wrestlemania would have been great to see too.

If the whole Benoit thing hadn't happened, and if he were still alive

I think Benoit would definitely be a first-ballot Hall of Famer for whenever he would retire

And Benoit I would have seen him perhaps turn heel even, become World Heavyweight Champion once again for the first time since 2004

Or he would have become WWE Champion

But we will never know now, will we

He also would likely be putting on wrestling clinics every week with guys like Kidd, Ziggler, Danielson, etc. Probobaly would've been a pro on NXT at some point and definitely would've had a fued for the US and tag titles by now.
Wow? Are you really comparing him to Mark Henry? First of all, Chris Benoit is a heap load better than Mark Henry in the ring, on the mic, and drawing all together. Chris Benoit is billed as a high-profile underdog because of all his work and little stardom, but that's not to say that he didn't get his dues. The guy was the second person to ever enter the Royal Rumble as #1 and walk out as a winner. Not only that, but he beat HHH and Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 20 in the main event, and then again at Backlash.

How can you compare someone like that to Mark Henry? Mark Henry who has done absolutely nothing in the main event scene. His most memorable moment is having a "baby" with Mae Young.

Chris Benoit would probably be retired by now. His condition was waring on him, and I think if he would of been right-minded then he would of quit by now to preserve what little sanity he had left. If he was still in the ring he would probably be a Chris Jericho type of level. High-profile feuds while putting rising talent over. He wouldn't be booked as weak by any means, but he wouldn't be a top contender. He would definitely of got another run with the strap before hanging up his boots.
