He says he would use the name "Chris Benoit" when he starts working and even use the same entrance music. Crazy stuff.

It's creepy how much he looks like Benoit.

Sounded like he wants to be a wrestler but didn't sound like he'd be able to cut a promo to save his life and flaked off his training with Lance Storm. Seemed like a nice kid though.

If he wants to get anywhere as a wrestler he needs to not use his dads name or look

WWE has previously said they have no interest.

Chris is usually pretty thoughtful about stuff. Cant imagine why he'd interview this guy

Maybe just a general interest kind of thing.  I myself was always interested in David because he was a different part of Benoit's family (I think David was from his first wife), and while whatever little articles out there stated he was interested in wrestling, I never anything about him or from him til now.

 

It sounds like he's in a decent life position.   Seems he should maintain that rather than going around bearing the sins of his father, but it sounds like its something he really wants to do.

Just watched the full thing.  I can't imagine what that must be like and how conflicted that dude must feel.

 

By the way, the guy doing the interview was excellent.   He's obviously knowledgeable about the business and asked some good questions and let the interview plat play itself out.  More of a conversation than interview.

Why wouldn't he?  David didn't kill anyone.

That dude creeps me out and I don't know why other than because I know who his dad is. He doesn't look like a wrestler at all. Maybe give him Paul Bearer make up and let him hang around The Fiend or something.

Yes, David is Chris' son with his first wife. Daniel is the only child he had with Nancy/Woman afaik.

Just stumbled upon this after watching the interviewer's chat with Vampiro......which was almost as weird. David is def not a pro wrestler. Very quiet, not going to cut a promo anytime soon. Seems like a decent guy, though. Should def stick to blue collar life, imo.
