Konnan rips Jordynne Grace: “you don’t know what the f**k you’re talking about”

Jul 11, 2022 - by James Walsh

Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace wrote about Chris Benoit and said, “I don’t think Benoit could 100% hang with most of the present day best wrestlers. He would not be able to remember matches. Also may he burn in hell, amen 🙏🏼.”

During his podcast, former WCW star Konnan talked about what Grace wrote…

“I can’t believe that she would publicly come out and make an ass of herself like that. But that ain’t the first time she’s had stupid takes. And, you know, with age comes wisdom. You’ll get here soon enough. Obviously, you don’t know what the f**k you’re talking about. Benoit without a doubt out of all the years and all the dressing rooms and all the people that I’ve worked with is one of the greatest performers I’ve ever seen. His passion was second to none. His intensity was second to none. His preparation was second to none. What do you mean he couldn’t hang with nobody today? Bro, 90% of the guys today could not hang with him. That’s the bottom line because I worked with them. And what do you mean that he would have forgotten everything? Listen, if he was at a point where he was forgetting, nobody would let him put together matches.”

“And bro, okay, yeah, he killed his family. Yeah, the guy had CTE. It ain’t like he was a serial killer. The guy had all these problems accumulated from years like we’re seeing now in wrestling, like we’re seeing now in football, like we just saw with this one guy, the 33-year-old wide receiver (Demaryius Thomas) that just passed away…it’s a serious thing for you to make light of it and make a stupid idiotic remark like that just shows what an idiot you are.”

  1. She has a right to her opinion just like everyone else. He was a murderous scumbag who killed his family in a steroid and drug fueled rage. Sure sounds like a memorable figure if I ever heard of one. He wasn’t a “victim” of fame or professional success pressure. He was just a plain bad person who did horrible things. You don’t hear people defending Jeffery Dahmer or Charles Manson’s actions. Why this scumbag?

    “He was just a plain bad person who did horrible things.”

    Ignorant take. You don’t seem to know what you are talking about either. Let me preface this by saying I am not one of those people that pretend it never happened or spend time glorifying him.

    That said saying he was just “a bad person” again shows ignorance. There are several articles discussing how he suffered from CTE with the comparison being made: “Benoit’s brain was so severely damaged it resembled the brain of an 85-year-old Alzheimer’s patient.”

    And that’s been a question ever since on if this tragedy was avoidable to save all of their lives including his. Most people agree that these were not actions of a man in control of his faculties.

    So downplay the facts because you like Jordynne Grace (probably). What he did was terrible, atrocious, etc. No question there. But he was a victim of himself too. I’m not inclined to praise him either, but that doesn’t mean what happened to him wasn’t tragic also.

    Dahmer and Manson didn’t have severe brain damage comparable to that of a man in his 80s with severe Alzheimer’s. Experts who studied his brain said that, and they had studied a number of football players who had CTE, and Beniots was the worst they’d ever seen.

    Beniot did horrific things, but he wasn’t in his right mind. It’s miraculous something really bad didn’t happen sooner, or he made terrible error in the ring and hurt or killed someone. I feel the worst for poor Nancy and Daniel though. They should still be alive and well today.

    Benoit’s last actions were horrible & I hope Nancy & Daniel are at peace. That being said he had the brain of an 85 year old with Alzheimer’s patient. That, plus the loss of one of his best friends (Eddie Guerrero) made it worse

    Steroid and drug fueled rage? He had normal amounts of testosterone in his system from reports I read. The whole “steroid rage” BS was just that… BS. The other drugs were just painkilling measures, but nothing was off the charts. Maybe do a little research before jumping to conclusions – like the media did. While what he did was horrible, it was more related to the CTE than anything else. Why do you think there have been so many suicides from people that had CTE (they found out afterwards). Apparently it clouds one’s judgement, to say the least.
