After the murder-suicide of the Benoit family, the WWE has not shown any footage of the former superstar since. Now, with the launch of the new WWE Network expected to be soon, the WWE appears to be changing that policy they’ve held onto for so many years since the tragic events.

F4Wonline.com is reporting that the WWE has sent out a memo noting that Chris Benoit footage will be allowed on the new WWE network. However, they will play an advisory before every and any show that he appears on.

WWE Network has been in the talks for the past few years, but now it seems it’s here with the expected announcement to come in Las Vegas next week. It’s expected to be a 24 hour network available online to subscribers rather than cable and satellite, eliminating the hastle of the WWE having to work with providers on getting their network on the channel lineups.
