Last night I felt really overwhelmly disappointed because I didn’t get to wrestle Chris Benoit. And today I can’t but feel guilty; I can’t get that out of my head because Chris Benoit is my hero. I was privileged enough to be able to work with him, and to know him as a person, and to call him my friend. Eventhough I’ll never get to wrestle him, he taught me a lot. I just hope that I can do his memory good, by always being the best i can be, and always think of him over my shoulder being really hard on me, and just trying to keep the next generation of wrestlers alive the way Chris Benoit would’ve wanted it. I hope I never let you down. Chris, I miss you. – CM PUNK
Even after five years, we still miss you Chris, and we will always love you.
