    I can understand why. Benoit needs a personality transplant. His wrestling is ok tho.

    I agree with most of the awards, apart from the ones Benoit won, it's funny when people like John Cena or Lita win an award its a case of ''the marks have spoken'', but when Benoit wins something it's because he's proven to be great, he's the best etc!

    No, Benoit won because the marks have spoken. However much you dislike him, the guy is OVER. He gets big pops, he sells merchandise, and he's gone from being a smark favourite to a mark and smark favourite, hence his CONVINCING victories in these awards.

    Paige doesn't need me any more.

    So now I've started the ALEXA BLISS bandwagon. Fear the Bliss.

    Despite the awards not having any TNA in thus making them WWE awards rather than wrestling awards, Im very happy that HHH won Heel of the Year.

    Case in point: WWE Shopzone -

    1. John Cena Spinner Pendant
    2. John Cena Word Life Lock Pendant
    3. ECW T-shirt and DVD Package
    4. Rey Mysterio Long Sleeved Tattoo T-shirt
    5. Triple H Book and Towel Package
    6. Batista Logo T-shirt
    7. Christian Captain Charisma T-shirt
    8. John Cena Ruck Fules T-shirt
    9. Triple H Cross/Skull T-shirt
    10. ThemeAddict: WWE The Music V6

    That's right - BATISTA is a bigger merchandise seller


    Not trying to take away from Benoit's achievement, but your point was pretty flawed

    I don't dislike Benoit, i just dislike the way people overrated him, ie if he has a 3* match at best people will jump at it at say it was a 5* classic bout, also Benoit wasnt really over that much, only at WM XX and Backlash he was super over. Your right he sells merchandise because i bought a Benoit Hodded top the other day

    But i still think he shouldnt have won most of the awards, ah well.

    EDIT: Draven, he's sold at least one

    Found this on Slam Sports:

    Business may be slow for World Wrestling Entertainment but the McMahons still know how to make a buck. Despite a massive decline in TV ratings and attendance figures, WWE posted an impressive US $7.8 million profit for its first quarter of fiscal 2005.

    The Stamford, Conn.-based company blew analyst predictions out of the water, thanks to continued cost-cutting measures at Titan Tower and solid results from licensing and merchandising. In particular, the Ric Flair and Chris Benoit DVD sets sold like hotcakes, boosting merchandise revenue alone to $16.3 million US for the quarter.

    The Benoit DVD set, which is a must-see for all mat fans, shipped 65,000 units during the May to July time frame
    , while the Flair collection is already the highest selling wrestling DVD of all time.

    WWE expects similarly strong results from upcoming releases, including the awesome Eddie Guerrero documentary, 'Cheating Death, Stealing Life' (which hits shelves on Sept. 28th) and the 'Rise and Fall of ECW' collection.
    He must be doing something right .

    See without Benoit... no profits....

    If you look at DVD sales I bet that the Flair and Benoit DVD's will outsell all the rest of the merchadise avilable on Shopzone...
