I haven't watched wrestling in a while now, but I was a big fan of Benoit's. Sadly, today he and his whole family were found dead. There wasn't any bullet or stab wounds, but it is still being investigated as a homicide. Benoit had canceled his pay-per-view match for ECW the day before citing "personal reasons."
Wrestling star Chris Benoit, his wife, Nancy, and their 7-year-old son Daniel were found dead in their suburban Atlanta home Monday. Authorities are investigating the deaths as homicides.
I hope this doesn't turn out to be some religious sacrifice or something. Clearly there was some major event happening behind the scenes when he canceled his match ... only to turn up dead the next day with his family. The whole thing is very strange, and I hope we all know the truth soon.
By all accounts Benoit was one of the nicest people you'd ever meet ... especially for a wrestler. Here's a tribute I found on Youtube.
