I haven't watched wrestling since Andre the Giant / Jimmy Superfly / Hulk Hogan with a slice of Randy Macho Man Savage roamed the planet. I really started to stop watching it when I realized there was some guys in an office somewhere smoking weed and coming up with these crazy themes and schemes. To me there is definitely a part of it that is entertainment. The other parts of it are soooo fake that I refuse to watch now. I guess I just grew up and out of that phase.

If a fan feels that a wrestler is a good family man it is usually what the fan finds out about the wrestler on his own. Not what Jim Ross or Jerry "the King" Lawler say on a broadcast of Monday night RAW or what Vinny Mac decides as the out come of a match or the next story line...
Again, unless you are actually his friend, you don't know him.

Best example, look at Terry "Hulk" Hogan. When he was with the nWo, he was a total heel. But after seeing "Hogan Knows Best" I really dont think that when he was a heel that he was a bad family man, him being a heel was all part of the act... And by the way his daughter is HOT... And so is his wife for being an older chick...
haha, I never saw that. I hear he's a nice guy, but again, I don't have a clue.

I think we all agree this was a tragedy, and I feel for the families of the child and wife...but I think Chris was a horrible person for what he did, and even though you shouldn't judge someone by one act in their life, it's hard not to after what he did.

You are 100% right, but like I said, usually a fan will dig into a person's life and make up their own mind as to whether or not that person is a family guy or an asshole. Much like you said about Tom Glavin, most think that he is respectable, but to someone who knows him he is an ass. I mean look at T.O. to most he is an per-maddona, but I am sure that there are some that veiw him as a decent person. At the end of the day I guess it is just a fan's opinion.

Yes, I agree that it is a tragedy for what happened to his child and wife, but mostly his child. And for Chris or anyone to do that to a family, well lets just say that suicide is way to kind for a person like that...

It appears that news of Benoit's wife's death was reported on the web 13 hours before police discovered the bodies. That is really, really wierd.
How stragne is it that the person who editted the Wiki page was located in Stamford, CT which is where the WWE headquarters are located?

Re: WWE News: Chris Benoit, Wife and Son found dead at their home

12:01am is kind of conspicuous, kinda like someone knew what happened, and waited until Monday morning to hit send...kinda like someone could have logged into a server in Stamford, from let's say Georgia to make that posting to Wiki...

Re: WWE News: Chris Benoit, Wife and Son found dead at their home

there is no way that was a coincidence. this story keeps getting weirder by the minute. have they released any of the text messages Benoit sent over the weekend?

Re: WWE News: Chris Benoit, Wife and Son found dead at their home

How do we even know they are really dead? Given the history of wrestling to pull off acts, could this be just a huge elaborate joke that has gone horribly wrong.

That would be horrificly vile and disgusting if that were true (and I don't believe it is), and the WWE should be immediately dissolved as a company.

Who would joke about a 7 year-old child being murdered by his father

I absolutely agree with you, but how is it it was posted several hours before it actually happened? Just trying to think outside the box.

Re: WWE News: Chris Benoit, Wife and Son found dead at their home

Vince did it.

Open and shut case, Johnson.

No but seriously. This case is just weird. I was a Benoit fan. I respect the wrestler but not the person now.

I REALLY wanna know the motive for this. I can understand killing your spouse (I in NO way condone it) Divorce, arguments, money etc etc. Can lead to things like that. But your son too? I just don't get that part. So I'm hoping police can come up with a motive.
