We have lost some good ones lately. This is a big loss. He will be missed.

Not many guys put on the same quality of show that the Rabid Wolverine continually gave us.

Early press reports dont read to well with all being found dead. I hope this doesnt pan out the way it is initially looking

im not a die hard fan, but my fiancee and i had an agreement. she would watch football and racing with me, and i would watch wrastlin' with her. ive seen many of the episodes and pay per views where both benoit and guerrero were on top. i liked benoit, and guerrero was a local el paso favorite. thats too bad. with the whole family dead it definitely doesnt look good.

i hope it doesnt turn into a case of a bunch of kids "hero" snapping.

Hmmm.... A one minute search turned up those three stories from the last week or so. Gotta love it when a celebrity gets offed. The whole world stands to take notice.

I honestly can say I don't care. I never watched him on tv. I don't know him or his family. They have no impact on my life at all. Now... When Paris Hilton is released from prison I'll be glued to the tv. :dang:

another article i read said that benoit pulled out of sundays pay per view match because of a "family emergency". when WWE people werent able to reach him, they were the ones who alerted police to search his home. it seems like those who worked with him seemed concerned something wrong may be going on. for whatever thats worth....

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- WWE wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife and son were found dead Monday and police said they were investigating the deaths as a homicide.

Lt. Tommy Pope of the Fayette County Sheriff's Department said the three were found at their home about 2:30 p.m., but refused to release details.

Pope said results of autopsies on Benoit, his wife Nancy, and 7-year-old son Daniel were expected Tuesday.

Benoit, 40, was a former world heavyweight champion, Intercontinental champion and held several tag-team titles over his career.

"WWE extends its sincerest thoughts and prayers to the Benoit family's relatives and loved ones in this time of tragedy," the federation said in a statement on its Web site.

Benoit was scheduled to perform at the "Vengeance" pay-per-view event Sunday night in Houston, but was replaced at the last minute because of what announcer Jim Ross called "personal reasons."

Benoit, a Canadian native, maintained a home in metro Atlanta from the time he wrestled for the defunct World Championship Wrestling.

The WWE canceled its live "Monday Night RAW" card in Corpus Christi, Texas, and USA Network aired a three-hour tribute to Benoit in place of the scheduled wrestling telecast.

i told my fiancee about this based on the WWE link i read in this thread and she didnt quite believe that it wasnt a typical WWE stunt, so i told her to google it and she read several things from legitimate newsites to me that make me wonder:

the only info that the police released was that they were not killed by gunfire, and something about possible carbon monoxide poisonning.

like i said, i hope for his fans and family he didnt "snap", but thats what it looks like to me with limited information. (im thinkingt he found out his wife was cheating on him and he went overboard but thats just speculation at this point)

Police are treating this as a "possible double murder, suicide". WWE has reported this on their site as well.

as a wrestler i always looked at benoit as one of the genuine, non actor "good guys". sometimes appearance doesnt matter though.

I pay my respect to the Benoit Family for their loss. However, the one thing that I have a huge problem with is this:

Every day American Soldiers are dying for freedom's sake. And yet barely anyone has lifted a finger to type a thread about that. Men and Women, some barely old enough to drink scotch or not old enough at all, are putting their lives on the line for US!!

So may God Bless the Benoit Family but I pray for extra blessings upon the families of our soldiers - for it is they who truly sacrifice!!!

Real heroes.

Not heroes with scripts...

Anyway it is looking like this is true. Looks like the Crippler finally snapped.

EDIT:

The couple and their 7-year-old son were found dead Monday in their home on Green Meadow Lane just east of Peachtree City. Nancy Benoit and her son, Daniel, were killed during the weekend and Benoit died Monday, police said.

That sums up how sick he is right there. He was living in the house for at least a day with his dead family. Glad to be rid of such a sick... I'll censor myself.

Au Revoir, Benoit. You can do all the flying headbutts you want in hell.

pretty sick. i cant imagine what he did in that house for a full day after he killed them. probably tried to think of a way to "O.J." his way out of it. unlike orenthal he atleast had the decency to put a noose around his neck.

of course this sucks for the family and friend, but i feel for the poor kids who looked up to this guy. say what you want about wrestling, but when i was a kid it was all about the steelers and oj simpson who i looked up to. you just dont expect your "heros" to flip.

while the firefighters, cops, teachers, doctors, and soldiers are the true heros, americans have always been enamoured with a murder mystery. this story will get a few days of pub and then be forgotten. look how quick the buzz of the va tech shooter disappeared.

06-26-2007, 04:33 PM
This is a tragic story but the wall to wall "news" media coverage of these tragic deaths of otherwise unknown people is sickening.

As you might imagine, this is getting huge play in ATL since Benoit lived in Fayette County southwest of Atlanta. It also is the lead story on the CNN web site and I assume is the feature attraction on FOX, MSNBC, and CNN today.

Of course, 999 out of 1000 people could not have told you yesterday this time who Chris Benoit was anymore than they could have told you prior to this past weekend where in Ohio the town in which the poor woman was murdered and dumped in a pond was located.

Nevertheless these tragic events become "breaking news." Modern TV news is nothing more than rubbernecking at accident sites - the gorier the better since if it bleeds it leads. This anything to make a buck attitiude is revolting, but since a significant number of viewers cannot get enough of this dreck I guess it will continue to get ladled up 24-7.

Wonder whether Nancy Grace or Geraldo gets to interview Vince McMahon about this tonight while Larry King rests up for his big interview with Paris Hilton tomorrow night?

Not to fan the flames, and, believe me, I'm sensitive to the media hype since I live not all that far from where they found Jessie Davis' body this weekend (The pregnant lady who was killed by her cop boyfriend in Ohio), but I heard that there were some undisclosed details about the Benoit case that were going to be really explosive. Rumors of heroin use, and that this was possible an execution of his family because of debts or something to that effect. I'm not a National Enquirer reader or conspiracy nut, and I didn't even watch or like wrestling, just passing on something I heard on a radio show. I think a lot of it stems from the fact that strangling family members is an extremely personal way to kill someone that close, especially a son or daughter, and it's tough to fit this in with someone other than a true psychopath.

lilyoder6
06-26-2007, 08:14 PM
i don't think it was an execution of his family b/c he still has a son and daughter out there.. and the toxication report hasn't been completed yet so no one knows what he could have had in his blood. but it's a sad thing that happened.

I work out almost every day, but I would never do roids. I saw friends freak out over almost nothing in HS, and I guess I could see how someone who abused them over lots of years could get really bad. I also saw how big those dudes got, the same guys that were smaller and weaker than me got big and strong FAST. I guess I can understand how someone might use those things, but it wasn't that important to me.

Nonetheless, I'll pay more attention to this case than I otherwise would just to see.

Roid rage doesn't last for three days straight either. Not saying it didn't play a part in it. But this could also go along the lines of some post concussion symptoms not unlike ex-football players are experiencing, head injuries. Even tho its fake they're bodies do take a beating.

Delta woman says wrestler Chris Benoit had a son with Fragile X syndrome

Tuesday, June 26 - 06:28:36 PM
Katharine Kitts

DELTA (NEWS1130) - We may never know the reasons behind Chris Benoit's decision to take the life of his wife, young son and himself. However, a Delta woman, who was in contact with the Canadian wrestler a few years ago, said she might have some insight into the family. Pam Winthrope said Benoit's son had a genetic condition called Fragile X syndrome. Winthrope said she has experienced the condition first hand and knows how it can tear a family apart.

Fragile X syndrome is an inherited mental impairment. Pam's 12-year-old son has the condition and she said in an effort to shed light on the syndrome, her husband called Chris Benoit about five years ago.

She said, "We talked to him because I was trying to set up a support group in BC and in Canada, we only have a couple of them. My husband was struggling when we got diagnosed with our son, and Chris was struggling with his. They talked for a few minutes and then he said he didn't want to be a public face for Fragile X, he just wanted to keep it really, really quiet."

Winthrope said she couldn't believe the news that Benoit had taken his life along with his wife and 7-year-old son. She added that families can be torn apart by the disease because it's very difficult to find help and support. She said, "You as a parent have to go out there and find what's available and it's not easy --they don't tell you."

Authorities offered no motive for the killings, which were spread out over a weekend, and would not discuss Benoit’s state of mind.

WWE: Wrestler Brian 'Crush' Adams Found Dead
Monday, August 13, 2007

TAMPA, Fla. — Former pro wrestling champion Brian "Crush" Adams died Monday after he was found unconscious in his home. He was 44.

He showed no visible signs of injury and foul play was not suspected, police spokeswoman Janelle McGregor said. Authorities were awaiting autopsy results from the medical examiner before proceeding with their investigation.

Adams' wife, who was not identified, found her husband not breathing and called 911 about 11 a.m. Fire Rescue workers later pronounced him dead, McGregor said.

Adams, a former world tag team champion, last performed for the World Wrestling Federation in 2001 and served intermittently on the roster beginning in 1990, World Wrestling Entertainment said. WWE spokesman George Cabico had no further comment.

Adams death comes less than two months after pro wrestler Chris Benoit killed his wife and son before hanging himself on the cable of a weight machine in his Georgia home. Prescription anabolic steroids were found in the family's home, raising questions about whether the drugs played a role in the killings.

Sad, sad, sad. Until something is done to clean up professional wrestling these sad tragic tales of professional wrestlers dieing before the age of 50 will continue. Needlessly.
