And Jericho is livid he was booked at all...
- As previously reported, David Benoit had been booked to make his in-ring wrestling debut for Hart Legacy Wrestling in July. However, the Wrestling Observer reports that the match has been called off after Benoit's scheduled partner Chavo Guerrero has pulled out.
According to the report, Guerrero withdrew after he found out that Smith Hart had deceived him about Benoit's wrestling experience, saying that Benoit had full training and was ready to debut. He had told Jericho that they weren't planning on having Benoit wrestle a match and would just do an angle with him.
When Jericho found out, he was reportedly infuriated and called Hart to get the match stopped. At this point both Guerrero and Benoit's bookings are no longer set.
