During his appearance on Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru, Kevin Sullivan revealed the reason that he chose not to participate in the episode of Dark Side Of The Ring that told Chris Benoit’s story. Here’s what he had to say:
I have been extremely sensitive to them [Nancy’s parents], they were dear friends at one time. And I can’t imagine how it is to get up every morning for the mother and the father to see two urns on a mantle. I mean that, to me, has to be the hardest thing in the world. And I respect them very, very much. And I wanted to hear from them if they okayed it, because they have never talked about it publicly that I know of … No disrespect to Sandra, but I wasn’t gonna take anybody else’s word, except for Maureen and Paul’s word. And if it was okay with them, I would have talked.
