There is a rumor making the rounds that Chris Benoit’s contract is set to expire this month. One could speculate that this may be the reasoning behind Benoit’s recent string of losses, including dropping the U.S. Title to Booker T last month. If Benoit’s contract does, in fact, expire this month, it will be interesting to see if the former World Champion will receive the same kind of low-ball renewal offers given to Christian and the former Dudleys.
Again, this should be taken as nothing more than a rumor at this point.
