Promoted Fanboy: The physical similarities between Benoit and his childhood idol, The Dynamite Kid, are eerie. Benoit even performed moves like him, most infamously his snap suplex.
He would briefly seem to be on both ends of this trope, as soon afterward Davey Richards wore tights instead of trunks, cut his hair and adopted a more technical style, complete with similar moves. However, apparently it was actually Dynamite Kid (thus bypassing Benoit) that Richards was modeled after.
What Could Have Been: One has to wonder if WWE would be willing to exploit his death ala Eddie Guerrero had he died under other circumstances.
Had he not no-showed Night of Champions, he would have wrestled CM Punk for the first time.
