Chris Benoit: Dead at 40

by Jes

Some shocking non-hockey news came out tonight when it was announced that "The Crippler" Chris Benoit, 40, and his family were found dead.

World Wrestling Entertainment was informed today by authorities in Fayette 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.

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.

Back when I used to watch wrestling, Benoit was one of my favourites. Besides the fact that he was Canadian, he had a hockey player's mentality in and out of the ring.

It's sad to see another wrestling die way too young :(

(Edit: It seems that Benoit may have done this all himself ...

"Investigators believe Benoit, (pronounced ben-WAH) killed his wife and son over the weekend and then himself sometime Monday. The bodies were found Monday afternoon in three different rooms of the house on Green Meadow Lane, in a subdivision off a gravel road about two miles from the Whitewater Country Club.")

Normally, it's with great sorrow that I cross another one off my "Alive Wrestlers" list, but the evidence seems to indicate that he killed his wife and son before offing himself. The asshole probably blew a snot rocket on their fallen bodies before checking out.
Maybe they died because of a gas leak.
no gas leaks here: it actually looks like it's going to be a very strange story. i, too, used to watch wwf when i was little. i always liked the canadian crippler... what a shame.
