Details On WWE Network's Handling Of Chris Benoit Footage - Advisory Shown Prior To Shows
While WWE's footage featuring the late Chris Benoit is featured in its original form on the WWE Network, an advisory is shown prior to some content showcasing the late wrestler, as well as non-PG content.

It reads, "The following program is presented in its original form. It may contain some content that does not reflect WWE's corporate views and may not be suitable for all viewers. WWE characters are fictitious and do not reflect the personal lives of the actors portraying them. Viewer discretion is advised."

"You can block access to this program and others like it using the Parental Control feature in your WWE Network account settings."

According to some users, an advisory warning was not issued prior to WrestleMania 20 and the 2004 Backlash, which featured Benoit in main event title matches. Furthermore, the Backlash poster shown on the menu screen features an image of Cactus Jack and Randy Orton fighting rather than the original Benoit-themed artwork.

The WWE Network offers a search function that allows users to instantly find shows featuring content with a specific talent, however, a search for Benoit shows no results.
