Chris Benoit’s last 48 hours on Earth are some of the most polarizing times in the world of professional wrestling. However, Benoit had a huge impact on fans and other wrestlers throughout the years. This week, I’m joined by Stride Pro Wrestling’s Shane Rich. He shares a unique experience with us about meeting Benoit.
We are not glorifying the tragedies or making light of them in any way. We are just two pro wrestling (and Chris Benoit) fans remembering a different time in our business.

Through the years I’ve made a lot of friends in the world of professional wrestling. Shane Rich and I met in 2011 during the All American Pro Wrestling days. Shane is that company’s former heavyweight champion.
He’s also a veteran, which is the inspiration behind the new promotion he’s starting; Warrior’s Code Wrestling. The first show is Saturday, June 11 at Christopher (IL) First Baptist Church. Bell time is 7 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Disabled American Veterans.
In this episode I also talk more about the passing of Muhammad Ali and the impact he had on wrestling and why I think he’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame is long overdue.
