– Chris Benoit’s son David is reportedly training to become a professional wrestler. He’s just now started lifting weights but word is that he’s done some working out with David Hart Smith, son of the late British Bulldog. Here is a recent photo of David and David:

Apparently Benoit has also kept in touch with Chris Jericho. Jericho noted in his most recent book that David called him up after the murders and asked if he would still be able to attend wrestling events. Here is a photo of David at a SmackDown event, presumably from this year, and at another event with Jericho before Jericho’s most recent departure:

  • Kenneth J Joyce

    He does look a lot like his father Chris .And I wish him nothing but good luck in the future .He deserves it !

  • J.P.

    I wish him the best as well. Likely he will never publicly be announced as Chris Benoit’s son due to the incident that now defines the Benoit Family. Maybe he is billed as a “second generation wrestler, trained by the Hart family.” Means his technical skills will be honed. Just needs a persona to match, and a marketable gimmick. Might just be looking at a future champion, likely in AAA or NJPW way before he ever gets a WWE shot.

    Wish him all but the best. If he becomes half the wrestler that his ______ was, then he’ll be something special in this sport.

    Can he still attend wrestling events……thats just sad.
