– Matt Hardy wrote the following on Twitter yesterday regarding WWE’s policy of not mentioning Chris Benoit:
“I totally understand why WWE has adopted a non-Benoit policy, that’s a business move to attempt to distance themselves from Chris’s terrible final actions. My point is that I don’t have to cater to & speak by “WWE history”, as opposed to actual, factual history. WWE can treat the Benoit situation as if he never existed, but in reality, he absolutely did.”

Speaking of DWTS, they will hold their first-ever All-Star Season this coming Fall with cast members who have appeared in the past. They are keeping tight on casting for the season but it’s always possible that Chris Jericho could be invited back.
