Well... fuck.

Fuck, on many different levels atm.

I sure hope that the most recent news is wrong... I was about to say "100% chance he's inducted into the HoF this year". Now it seems that it will depend on exactly what went down, and that's freakin sad.
Edit: Please, somebody tell me that tonight's raw got youtubed or dailymotion'd or something?? I didn't even get home until 9:50 (10:50pm est).

I'm really surprised to hear this from them first of all places. I guess we still don't know who did what to whom, but boy is this just a real shame.

I have no words. I hadn't planned on watching RAW tonight and so didn't pay attention to anything online. I was sequestered away doing some reading when I got a phone call telling me to turn on RAW immediately and that Benoit had died. I read the WWE.com blurb and my legs still feel weak. Tragedy isn't a powerful enough word.

    Sad but shocking details of Benoit family deaths



    Dave@wrestlingobserver.com

    According to a report on WAGA-TV, investigators believe Chris Benoit killed his wife and son at some point over the weekend, and then killed himself earlier today.

    They reported first hearing from a concerned neighbor and that the three bodies were found in separate rooms.

    Detective Bo Turner told the staion the case was being investigated as a murder-suicide, but it could not be confirmed until the evidence was examined by a crime lab

This gets more disturbing every time the news updates. The latest quote from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution...


    "The details, when they come out," said Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard, "are going to prove a little bizarre."

I came out of my hockey game, had beers to give to my teamates, and one of them come us to all of us and simply says "Chris Benoit and his family are dead".......

I couldn't believe what he said. The sad thing is, everyone guessed it was a murder/suicide...

I don't even know what to say.... this is... sad......

Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"

Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

I found out when I got home from work, but had plans with friends tonight...so I'll bring myself to watch the tribute show tomorrow...

I feel ill...and still stunned...I was also there for the Rumble win in Philly...the greatest match I've ever witnessed in person.

One of my all-time favorites...much has, and will be said...but this will all take a long time to truly process...

If the rumors are true, and I hope to God that they are not, but if they are, then I'd like to say FUCK CHRIS BENOIT.

I respect the hell out of him as a performer. But, if he was truly responsible for the intentional death of his own child, then fuck him.

Obviously. But I sure as hell don't want to say that until I know for sure. Even if it's just denial. Which I'm honestly pretty sure it is at this point.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Maybe so... but I bet most of those guessers would have put the blame on Nancy, not Chris.

I was never into Benoit like a lot of you guys were (probably because I was always a Jerichoholic first), but I pray that what the investigators suspect isn't true.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

We can speculate all night and all day long. At this point, about the only thing that feels certain is that we'll never truly know what happened in that house this weekend.

The forensics reports and autopsy reports should tell how. Why? We may never know.

More from Meltzer:



    Sources in the Fayette County Police Department are now working under the theory that Chris Benoit killed Nancy several days ago, then his son, before taking his own life.

    Benoit was found dead in his weight room.




I get the feeling that the next couple of days are going to reveal some stories that we're really not going to want to hear, because it's getting harder and harder at this point to think anything other than the absolute worst.

I've been praying that it wasn't something like this.

I'm reserving everything else for a later post...I'm just totally ill, sick, and worn out from this.

I'm gonna miss watching Chris wrestle as he was one of the few that could still get on the mat and wrestle and make it interesting to watch. I'm an old Kayfabe fan and really like technical wrestling instead of alot of the BS that they do now.

I'll reserve my opinions on the events until I know for sure what happened. I'll always respect and admire his wresting ablity but I didn't know him per his family personally so I can't say anything else now.

Anytime something like this happens it's a terrible thing and my condolences and prayers go out to the Benoit family in this tragic time.

I will say this though, don't judge one way or the other until all of the facts have been told. At this point no one knows for sure but don't ever think that something like what the news is saying isn't possible, it is. I hope not but I don't know.

I am trying to think of a celebrity death that hit home to me more. Thurman Munson is probably it, with Chris Farley, John Candy, and John Belushi up there also. The memory that sticks out the most is the match he had (can't remember who it was against) during the last days of WCW, but it was a steel cage match. Near the end, he and Snuka both did opposite corner flying headbutts from the top of the cage, and I just plained went nuts. One of my favorite wrestling moments, and I will always appreciate that.

Great thread so far, guys. Thanks.
