XtremeFalls43 sent this in: The Benoit case was discussed on 1st and 10 on First Take this morning and the analysts talked about whether wrestling should regulated by the federal government. Host Jay Crawford and guest Panelist thought wrestling needs to be looked at by the federal government. Regular Panelist Skip Bayless felt that they are entertainers and wrestling should police themselves. He also wouldn’t call wrestlers athletes which pretty much explains the reason for his opinion right there. They finished the segment up with the mention of Vince McMahon’s prior steroid trials. Yesterday, ESPN Show Pardon the Interruption also covered the results. Both host Michael Wilbon and Dan Le Batard thought their needs to be change.

However, a few hours later, now this is what it says: “At Judgment Day, MVP won a 2-out-of-3 Falls match in two straight falls to become the United States Champion, the latest in a long line that includes several Hall of Famers and current SmackDown Superstars.”

VKingOfTheWorldV also sent this in: I’m not sure if it’s anywhere else but here in Chicago through Comcast Cable they are still editing any appearance by Benoit during the Monday Night Wars (on WWE 24/7). So luckily we’ve already gotten the great brawl between Benoit-Sullivan from Nitro in Chicago (I was there btw). But it looks like Comcast atleast here in Chicago doesn’t want Benoit mentioned or shown on the 24-7 package.
