If You Create a Chris Benoit Character in WWE 2K15 You Will Be Banned from Playing Online for Two Weeks

One of the more exciting features of WWE 2K15 is the fact players can create their own character by simply uploading an image onto the game’s Community Creations.

While players can choose any decent image they want, it looks like people have been uploading an image of former WWE wrestler Chris Benoit’s face textures and have been greeted with a two week ban on the game’s online platform for their troubles.

While fans still haven’t forgotten him, WWE and 2K Games still consider him nonexistent, and Benoit’s family have asked WWE to not use his image in any future products.

For those unfamiliar with the Benoit/WWE situation, in June of 2007, the former WWE champion murdered his wife and young son in their home before hanging himself, and soon thereafter the WWE have been pretending he never existed.

So let’s all play by the rules and not upload the wrestler that never was.

Former genius and a woman of mystery and power, whose power is exceeded only by her mystery, Dana Abercrombie has been playing video games since birth (yes birth...we did say "genius"). Despite her secret desire of wanting to give it all up to become a gorgeous billionaire, Dana is most passionate about video games and films often times getting in many heated debates resulting in being thrown out of many gatherings. Despite having a degree in English AND Journalism (multi-tasking FTW!) from the University at Albany-SUNY, she is currently interested in perusing a degree at Yale Law School, because one should never give up on a dream of becoming a gorgeous billionaire...and knowing how to sue someone as a result of those heated debates
