The WWE is reportedly no longer going to attempt to erase the memory of Chris Benoit.

According to a report from F4Wonline.com, WWE sent out a memo stating that footage of Benoit will be allowed to air on its new network, but with a caveat. There will reportedly be an advisory played before every piece of video he appears on.

Benoit murdered his wife and son before committing suicide in June of 2007. Since then, WWE has taken measures to all but erase him from the history books and has used archived footage of him only when it absolutely had to.

WWE is expected to announce the launch of its new network at the Consumer Electronics Show Jan. 8 in Las Vegas.
