I'll say what I've said elsewhere... Rest in Peace Benoit family.

If Benoit did kill them (which is being reported everywhere) then I've lost all my respect for Chris as a person. My respect for him as a wreslter however, will never go away.

And I suggest we start discussing wrestling as soon as possible.

If you go over to PWInsider.com you'll find many links, including the grisly details of what the authorities believed happened. We all want to defend Chris Benoit, we don't want to believe someone that we respected so much and (perhaps) idolized could be capable of the horror he is being accused of, but there is substantial evidence right now to support that theory.

I want to stress that this does not make Chris Benoit a bad person, this does not make him some kind of cold blooded animal, from many of the details I'm reading, and the testimony of the local police who said when the investigation concludes the details will be very bizarre, I believe something went very very wrong with Benoit, that he for some unfathomable reason snapped.

I grief his loss, I grieve his wife's loss, as she too was an active part of the wrestling business, and a major part of ECW early on, I grieve the loss of his son, a little boy who will never grow up and follow his father's footsteps, or choose his own path. To assign blame or deny reality in this situation is wrong, and it does a disservice to the deceased, and to the people who have the painful task of figuring out how this insane situation could have occured.

We are united in our grief right now, and I hope that we can all help each other get through it. We didn't know Chris Benoit on a personal level, but we had a connection with him through his performances that we enjoyed every week. He was one of the best of all time, no matter how his life ended we need to honor those accomplishments, and honor him and his family.

That's all I have to say right now, for those who wonder why I want you to go find the details yourselves, well, frankly I'm still coping with what I've read and I just can't bring myself to repeat it. I make no apologies for that.

I already saw it. The sad part is I'm already fans of Chris shitting on him, and that's a damn shame. For 22 years he went out and busted his ass to entertain us, and he did that better than a lot of people.

He deserves better than to be remembered as a murdered... But I guess that's just the way it goes.

For those of you still doubting he killed them, then himself it sure seems like a murder suicide as this is the way they generally play out. I mean, he hung himself, folks. Do you really think another person could forcibly hang Chris Benoit? No freaking way.

It's a sad day and I hope the WWE doesn't take serious consequences if it comes down to something along the lines of 'roid rage' as you all know most WWE Superstars are on them. You can expect them all to be governent regulated if this was the means to his end.

His poor wife and son... noone deserves this.

Clearly people speak ill of the dead. Have you ever been to a funeral and heard one bad thing said about a person? No. Out of respect for the dead (especially friends or family) you do not say anything bad about them.

It was already revealed in many ways that Vince McMahon is not dead. On Raw last night he even made an appearance to tell us about the death of Benoit. I do hope you meant "his death in Kayfabe" because I know how someone could have killed Benoit over that. You see many fans were sickened by the "demise" of Mr. McMahon, and with this show coming up that was supposed to be a memorial night for vince, someone could have snapped. They decided someone else who is actually dead would deserve a whole show instead of Vince, so they went and murdered one of the most popular active wrestlers and made it look like murder suicide. Then we had a memorial for an actually dead person. I'm not saying this is what happened, it's just a theory and not even that educated of one. I still think that it is a possibility though in some way.

Something's odd. Why would Benoit tie up Nancy, and how come she didn't struggle? Why did Benoit wait a while before killing the son? (if he did it) We're supposed to believe that Benoit killed both of them, sent some text messages to a co-worker (I'm guessing Chavo) then waited some more, then killed himself?

While Chris being a shade under 6 feet himself (roughly 5'10) was found hanging by a cord on his weightlifting equipment in his basement weight room.

Its a bit difficult to hang yourself with a piece of equipment. And where did the blood on Nancy's head come from?

I'm not reaching or anything, I'm saying something feels wrong, and I believe there might have been foul play involved.

Well i dunno, abc, fox news said what i said so i am not sure if somebody else did or not, we will have to keep watching the news and see what the police says about this.

It seems pretty plausible.

Steroids can cause dementia and of course, roid rage, and who knows if he was on anything else at the time (methamphetamines, cocaine, whatever).

Even More Messed up...
The day before Benoit died his old tag-team partner Shayne Bower whom he wrestled with on Stampede Wrestling also died.. Though he died of a Heart-Attack.
Any chance 10 years ago if that was a storyline in a movie do you think anyone would have even thought that it be likely?

Don't give the WWE ideas. Down the line I'm sure Vince would be able to justify making a movie out of it.

I think it is safe to say that the WWE won't milk this for a storyline. I don't think they would sink that low. If they did, I would stop watching.

What was the name of that wrestler on SD a few months back that emulated Benoit? I like to see what he will do with his career after his idol's tragic death.

Gunner Scott. He's wrestling for ROh as Brent Albright, my guess us he'll keep wrestling his style which is similar to Benoit's. I'm pretty sure he'll continue to be successful despite this tragedy.

Well, I'm sure the extent of his emulation of Benoit was just exaggerated for the purposes of the storyline he was in, in which Benoit was like his mentor. So it's not like this should really affect his career, unless people bring up the time he spent on Smackdown.

TVWeek.com reports that Vince McMahon will appear on ECW On Sci-Fi tonight to apologize for the three hour RAW Benoit tribute that WWE ran last night. WWE ran the show before information broke that Benoit himself had killed his wife and son, then himself.

If you go to WWE shopzone, you'll see all of Benoit's stuff is no longer for sale. Even the DVD's have been altered. For instance, in the WM XX DVD it reads... HHH defends his title against Shawn Michaels. Benoit's name has been edited out of every match he ever wrestled for WWE.

Basically, he's being one-day rule'd.

Oh my God, from one extreme to the other. They shouldn't need to apoligise for the show they aired, and I think it would still have been called for regardless of the circumstances. His career has been great, and he has had some great matches, and that should be honoured.

I still can't believe that the whole Mr. McMahon death storyline is now pretty much scrapped because of Benoit going on a mini killing spree. I was amped up about that storyline. Dammit.

That's crazy, I can't even sleep at night. What will the WWE think of this? I mean they can't really admit that he was on steroids, but everyone would think that he's a phsyco. I've been in those situations where everything is just violence and chaos with heart breaking and commotion, so i should know.

That gives up my dream of being a wrestler

On Saturday, June 23, Chris Benoit was slated to appear at a WWE live event in Beaumont, Texas. That afternoon, Benoit contacted WWE to inform them that his wife and child were ill, and that he would not be able to attend the show.

WWE executives rebooked Benoit’s flight for the following morning, allowing Benoit to miss the Beaumont event making alternate arrangements for him to attend the pay-per-view event in Houston on Sunday.

WWE employees attempted to confirm with Benoit his travel plans but were unable to contact him.

Early Sunday morning, between 3:51 and 3:58 a.m., Benoit sent five text messages to co-workers:

Text Message 1 to two co-workers (sent 6/24 at 3:53am)- Chris Benoit’s cell phone
“My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane, Fayetteville Georgia. 30215”

Text Message 2 to two co-workers (sent 6/24 at 3:53am)- Chris Benoit’s cell phone
“The dogs are in the enclosed pool area. Garage side door is open”

Text Message 3 to two co-workers (sent 6/24 at 3:54am)- Nancy Benoit’s cell phone
“My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane.
Fayetteville Georgia. 30215”

Text Message 4 to two co-workers (sent 6/24 at 3:55am)- Nancy Benoit’s cell phone
“My physical address is 130 Green Meadow Lane.
Fayetteville Georgia. 30215

Text Message 5 to one co-worker (sent 6/24 at 3:58am)- Nancy Benoit’s cell phone
“My address is 130 Green Meadow Lane. Fayetteville Georgia. 30215”

Throughout the day on Sunday, WWE made numerous attempts to contact Benoit both at home and at local hospitals in the Atlanta area. As of 11:00 p.m., WWE officials were unable to establish contact with Chris Benoit.

At 12:30 p.m. on Monday, June 25, WWE officials were notified of the text messages sent to the co-workers the previous day. By 12:45 p.m., WWE had contacted Fayetteville County Sheriff’s office requesting they check on the Benoit family.

Fayetteville County Sheriffs office made contact with WWE at approximately 4:00 p.m. advising that they had entered the house of Chris Benoit and found three deceased bodies – an adult male, adult female and a male child. WWE was told that Benoit’s home was now considered a major crime scene.

The decision to cancel the live event scheduled in Corpus Christi that night was made between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. In keeping with company policy, and with limited knowledge regarding facts of the case, WWE choose to air a memorial dedicated to the career of Chris Benoit. As facts emerged surrounding the case, all tributes to Chris Benoit were removed both on-air and on WWE.com
