As previously reported, David Benoit’s in-ring debut for the Hart Legacy Wrestling event in July was nixed after Chris Jericho got involved and was upset at Smith Hart for booking Benoit without him having the proper training.
Additionally, Chavo Guerrero, who was going to team with Benoit in the match, backed out when he learned that Benoit wasn’t properly trained.
Smith Hart made his first public comments on the situation recently, tweeting the following:
Here's hoping dissuasion of David Benoit's debut works out best for everyone including every single loyal fan.
