Man...

Ive been a big wrestling fan for a long time... I realize thats its staged, but it entertains me. Today, it was reported that long time fan fav Chris Benoit was found dead in his home, along with his wife and kid... Doesnt look good. Anyways, not sure if anyone even watches, but if you do, you will care about this. I for one, am a sad SOB.

RIP Chris

I was gonna post this, it's horrible. Cant be for sure yet but it's lookin bad. Vince picked the wrong time to work the whole Death angle. He's gotta be feelin shitty right now, like my friend said, if Vince doesnt come out to pay respects tonight theres a pretty good chance it's set up.

nah, its not set up. Anytime its a work, you can find it on wwe.com, but nowhere else. This is getting around, and is posted everywhere. Its not a work.

He has been taken off the Superstar Roster on Raw and everything. Somethin doesnt seem right. But you never know...

This is genuinely sad, even if he was a professional wrestler, he was a human like everyone else and its terrible that his has happened.


However, if this is a "work" from the WWE, then that would be just too much.

Exactly. Vince faking a death is far enough.

I agree, I haven't watched wrestling in years. However, I think if the WWF pulled a stunt like this, they should be prosecuted for it. Therefore, I have to believe it's true and a horrible tragedy.

WWE.Com has updated the story.

STAMFORD, Conn., June 25, 2007 – World Wrestling Entertainment was informed today by authorities in Fayetteville County, Ga., that WWE Superstar Chris Benoit, his wife, Nancy, and his son were found dead in their home. Authorities are investigating, but no other details are available at this time.

Instead of its announced programming for tonight on USA Network, WWE will air a three-hour tribute to Chris Benoit.

Chris was beloved among his fellow Superstars, and was a favorite among WWE fans for his unbelievable athleticism and wrestling ability. He always took great pride in his performance, and always showed respect for the business he loved, for his peers and towards his fans. This is a terrible tragedy and an unbearable loss.

WWE extends its sincere condolences and prayers to the Benoit family and loved ones in this time of tragedy.

It was just confirmed on RAW, Vince came out and gave a statement from the empty ring, since Raw was cancelled.

Vince in the ring, empty arena, no roster though... he was visibly upset, not that he couldnt fake it after all this time, but Benoit was his work horse, he really loved the guy.

Chris benoit was supposed to wrestle at the wwe pay per view last night, but had to call in and say he couldn't make it because he and his family were ill and throwing up blood. Chris benoit was one of the most respectful and nicest people Ive ever met. RIP chris.

My friend said the same but I highly doubt it was Tuberculosis. In these situations the more common thing is Murder Suicide.

I'm think more of murder or somethin. because what are the odds of him, his wife, and his son all dying at the same time. even if they were all sick, you would think one of them would have died then some one call the hospital. but they were all found dead this afternoon.
I met chris a couple year ago and had the oppurtunity to meat him again 3 weeks ago when he came to six flags kentucky kingdom to wrestle at ohio valley wrestling. but I was able to go, now he's gone.

I got to slap his hand in Anaheim at a Raw/Smackdown! show. Yeah Murder is probably what it's gonna turn out to be.

I cant believe it. I havent watched wrestling for 5 years but liked Benoit way back in the late80s on Stampede. I even stole his nickname for my handle on here.
Wrestling sure has has alot of premature deaths in recent years.

yeah because you would think one of them would have died 1st then they would have called 911. and they might have passed away at the hospital. there doing an investigation. but on a wrestling website it did say thay chris benoit was NOT shot to death.

Damn when I watched wrestling a few years ago I went to a live PPV event in the Continental Arena to see this dude. It was Benoit vs Jericho vs. Stone Cold in a tripple threat for the title. Chris always was one of my favorite wrestlers he brought excitement to WWE. RIP.
