I have a question for wrestling fans.  Last week, I missed a show where Vince walked to his limo, where it apparently blew up (I watch the clips on SmackDown today).  And on Monday, his daughter was crying in the ring, talking with the crowd, thanking them for their support, that her father died in the explosion.  My question is, with exclusion of anything pertaining to WWE (magazine, website, etc.), was their any legitimate news of this, newscasts, newspaper, etc. about this incident?  Because, if it is true, then I apologize, my condolences, and a wag of the finger for the news not covering this.  But, if it's not true (and I strongly think it's not), then the writers have insulted every fan who have watch the show since it was WWF.  This is the kind of tactic you would see in soap operas and read about in romance novels, mysteries and comic books, because if the outcome of this is what I think it is, real or fake, they lost a fan.

I'm sure he'll have "miraculously" survived and be back in a week or two.  It's a typical pro wrestling publicity stunt, though perhaps a bit more tasteless than normal.   TeddyR  If there was a real accident, do you suppose the film crew would have just happened to have been there to capture it all on tape?

I haven't been following 100% but I'm assuming they killed off the character "Mr. McMahon" and the real Vince is somewhere in Titan Towers laughing.  Please note on every reference that nowhere does it say in memoriam "Vince McMahon" but rather "Mr. McMahon". 

Either way, these are all reasons why I stopped watching wrestling years ago.  TNA is where its at now.  Hardly any lengthy interviews and wrestling for wrestling fans.

It's all part of the show; Vince McMahon is alive and well. The angle will probably last a while as they will try to build up a whodunit atmosphere that inevitably will bore most wrestling fans. It has been done kind of as a response to/parody of The Sopranos, if I recall correctly.

I know McMahon's "death" was a storyline, but I just read somewhere else that Chris Benoit was found dead in his home along with his wife and son.  Anyone else heard anything about this yet?
