Most of my thoughts are here: http://dextreme88.wordpress.com/2012/06/24/the-benoit-double-murder-and-suicide-story-5-years-later/

But long story short...what do you think changed in the industry since that happened?

For me, I think a couple of things happened.

+ WWE implementing 'safeguards' for their talent (e.g. less chair shots to the head to prevent concussions).

+ The near erasing of Chirs Benoit in archive footages, old matches, etc. (Though you can still see his name mentioned in PPV results)

But that's just me.

Guys? Thoughts? cheesy

I've noticed a lot less "hardcore" matches in TNA as well and they also tend to take concussions more seriously as well.

Mr. Anderson and Sting both have been sidelined with concussions in the past. I really wouldn't be surprised if Kurt Angle likewise has been sidelined with concussions while in TNA.

While Brother Devon still does the diving Headbutt but it now more from the mat and not the top rope. Samoa Joe and Bobby Roode both use the Crossface submission move.
