What the f*ck... WWE wrestler Chris Benoit and his family were found dead in their Georgia home today. Benoit missed last night's WWE pay-per-view to deal with "family issues" and it's suspected that all three were murdered. According to early police reports there were no signs of a gun being used. It's always unfortunate to hear about wrestlers who die of drug overdoses or accidents, but the thought that the man and his family were murdered is disturbing to say the least. Whether you're a current wrestling fan or were a wrestling fan at some point in the last 15 years, you no doubt heard of Benoit and knew that he was one of those men who was truly dedicated to his job and gave his all in the scripted but incredibly demanding world of sports entertainment. Personally this is still coming as a shock to me (much like the deaths of Eddie Guerrero and Owen Hart did) and I only wish I had USA so I could watch the WWE tribute to him going on right now.

No doubt this tragedy will also bring an end to the company's ridiculous storyline of Vince McMahon being blown up in a limosine explosion, as it would be disgusting for the man not to make an appearance tonight to mourn the passing of one of his hardest working performers.  This sucks... this really sucks...

I literally just posted about this in the McMahon thread......it does make the whole "McMahon is dead" thing look even dumber, doesn't it? 

Wrestling would be much more entertaining if they stuck to wrestling and left the soap opera crap alone.

I think we have the infamous "Brian Pillman home invasion" scenario to blame for the dramatic increase in rediculous soap opera material over the last 15 years... jeez, it hasn't been that long already, has it?!

Phew........Just read this post. Nancy was such a great act in Florida in the 80's with Kevin Sullivan. This is very sad. Will tune in later tonight.

WWE wrestler Chris Benoit has been found dead, along with his wife and 7 year old son.

I'm not someone who follows wrestling, but the thought of an entire family slaughtered got my attention. I know there are some wrestling fans here, and my condolences go out to fans of his, as well as his surviving family. The deaths have been ruled a homicide.

Jeezus, CBS just reported that Fayetville PD are now calling this a murder-suicide... I was afraid this was going to turn into a Phil Hartman situation and whether it turns out to be Chris's fault or Nancy's, the worst thing is the possibility that one of the two was willing to kill their 7 year old son because of whatever the problem was... this is so depressing.

That would be really tragic.

Just watched the end of the Monday night show with the BENOIT, HHH, and MICHEALS championship match where EDDIE GUERRERO comes out at the end with BENOIT.

Man, that's truly terrible. I hope they find the person/people who did this and put them through the justice wringer.

Uggh... the latest update says that the PD estimate that Nancy and Danny were killed sometime over the weekend with Chris dying on Monday. I guess all we're waiting for now is the official statement that one of my favorite wrestlers died as a murderer who killed his own wife and child... no wonder I have no f*cking faith in humanity any more...

It is absolutely horrendous when something like this happens especially when children are involved.  Pro wrestling has had it's share of tragic deaths.  Thats why McMahon, as already mentioned, is ridiculous for doing the angle he did with the limo.

I have no problem with someone committing suicide, if living in a mansion and being a rich celebrity is that hard then go ahead and step out, but killing the other people in your life is the most cowardly, spineless act imaginable.  Maybe they still wanted to live even if you didn't.  Hatred

I haven't been into wrestling for several years now, but I'm still familiar with some of the folks involved.  This is quite tragic.

It's official. He is a murderer. Supposedly he strangled his wife, smothered his son, and then hung himself in the weight room.

The only silver lining in this for me is, I love terriyaki bowls. Yum, yum.
