Re: WWE Wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife, smothered his son and hung himself!

You could actually tell in Chavo's tribute video last night, that even though he was crying, something was bothering him about the whole thing and he didn't really look all that sad, probably because he was the one who alerted WWE officials that Chris had done something bad. Even in Edge's tribute, he was crying too but he was more stunned than anything. They were all aware that this was not just a random death, that Benoit had commited a crime and killed his family.

Even if some of the other wrestlers knew, some still wanted to pay tribute to the Chris Benoit they knew, not the maniac who did this crazy shit.

For some odd reason, I wasn't moved by any of the tributes last night like I was moved by the same tributes to Eddie Guerrero...they were a lot different and now we know why. All the wrestlers knew and im sure some refused to tape tributes as a result because some key guys were missing. Why would CM Punk get to do a tribute?

Benoit: 'Instruments' Include Electrical Chord & Bag

06/26/2007

The AP reported that law enforcement officials close to the investigation have confirmed the current belief that Chris Benoit strangled wife Nancy with an electrical chord on Saturday, smothered his son with a bag on Sunday and then hung himself in his basement/weight room on Monday.

I would add Mike Awesome too, who was quite famous for his time at ECW. He hung himself in February.

I remember watching that. Saw a very candid 2 hour interview with Bret Hart a few years back, some very interesting stuff about the aftermath.

Yokozuna - 34
Unsurprising given the weight he was carrying around, was it because of that or something else?

Drug overdose?

Didn't know he was dead - what happened to him?

Quote:

Ditto. When did that happen?

odd because i was at Madison Square Garden in 2004.
After he won the World Heavyweight he was crying and celebrating with Eddie, that had just won the WWE by defeating Kurt Angle. Who could have thought the destiny that awaited the 2.

Well one thing is for sure...Chris Benoit will never see Eddie Guerrero again.

Re: WWE Wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife, smothered his son and hung himself!

News Bit

World Wrestling Entertainment will not distribute their three hour Chris Benoit tribute show that aired last night on the USA Network to their international affiliates for airing.

The Score in Canada will also not air the program in its regularly scheduled RAW replay slots.

While updating their coverage of the Benoit family tragedy, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution has posted a report that Nancy Benoit filed for divorce and an order of protection from Chris Benoit in May 2003. Nancy Benoit alleged in the divorce petition that Chris, "lost his temper and threatened to strike the petitioner and cause extensive damage to the home and personal belongings of the parties, including furniture and furnishings. Petitioner is in reasonable fear for petitioner's own safety and that of the minor child." This prompted the judge to issue a restraining order on Chris Benoit from entering their family home. In August 2003, his wife Nancy requested that the petition be dismissed. The couple later reconciled and celebrated Benoit’s WWE World Heavyweight Championship win at WrestleMania 20 in the ring together.

In addition to the Shopzone merchandise, WWE has pulled their profile page on Chris Benoit from the company's website, not to mention that the front page isn't a Benoit tribute anymore as well. Pretty much all that is being showcased on the website regarding Chris Benoit is on the grim details of the Benoit family tragedy.

Last night they posted a bunch photos and videos of him, and made his section into kind of a tribute section. They also posted videos of the wrestlers giving their testimonials on Benoit, but those were quickly pulled after the grim details surrounding the Benoit family deaths surfaced. They also pulled the front page graphic of him from the Raw and ECW sections. The story of last night's Raw show still remains in the results section though.

TNA's website has removed their Chris Benoit death mention.

Text messages to friends “distributing”; may have watched the Vengeance PPV from home on Sunday.

Neighbors: Benoits kept to themselves.

Also heard that his tag team partner from the Stampede days was found dead two days ago at the age of 42.
