  1. Chris Benoit found dead

    Not sure if it's been posted, but according to Chris Benoit and his family were found dead in their Atlanta home today. Like or hate pro wrestling, Benoit was one of the greats, integrating many realistic holds and moves into his matches. Hits home for me, as he was one of the favorites growing up.

  7. Him, his wife and his son where found dead. He still has another son and daughter surviving which makes the news all the more terrible.

  9. Another update on Benoit murder/suicide

    by Dave Meltzer

    Sources in the Fayette County Police Department are now working under the theory that Chris Benoit killed Nancy on Saturday, son Daniel on Sunday, and then killed himself earlier today.

    Benoit was found dead in his weight room. Nancy was found dead in the lving room. Daniel was found dead in his bedroom, accordig t an unnamed source in the department.

    Lt. Tommy Pope told ABC News "the instruments of death were located on the scene," but didn't specify what those were or where they were found. Pope said the department was not actively searching for any suspects outside the house.

    This leads me to think that there may have been a note.

    All of this is very, very surreal with me. I remember snapping a picture of Benoit at the Wrestlemania hotel in New York back in the day. He was holding his newborn son. I'm just completely taken aback by this whole thing.

  10. It was said that Benoit sent some strange text messages on monday that prompted the call to the police. Also they said that the instruments in death were found in the house but were not knives and guns etc...

  11. thats crazy news. im thinking he strangled them or something. i wonder why? its sad tho.

    That's the speculation thus far, that he strangled his wife and child sometime early Saturday, and took his own life Monday morning.
    ~ Nothing can kill the Grimace!!

  13. Yeah, but how'd he take his own life, overdosed? only way I could think of it. Then my question is, why?

  14. what I have read at cnn is that when the info is released it will be deemed very bizarre.

  15. im sure. it already is very bizarre. maybe he had a dream that he was supposed to do it or something or got some hallucinagenic mushrooms on accident and started tripping....i want to know and im sure the family members want to know as well (if they dont already).

  16. I just hope they don't try to play the steroid card during this whole process.

  17. It is going to be interesting. According to the WWE webiste they have said they have been asked not to release any more info, so obviously this is a long story

  18. The Associated Press is reporting that Benoit strangled his wife, smothered his son, and hanged himself. reported minutes ago: "Several Atlanta-based law enforcement sources have told TMZ Benoit may have strangled his wife on Saturday, then smothered his son in his bed a day later. Investigators refuse to officially comment, pending final confirmation by the coroner on the cause and time of the deaths." has learned that one major media entity has received an email purporting to be from a friend of the Chris Benoit extended family saying that Benoit accidentally killed his wife in a domestic argument, then panicked and killed his son later so his son could be with his mother rather than grow up without a mom and knowing his father as a murderer.

    If nothing comes out of this, you can guarantee this angle will be played up.

  20. Leave it to CNN & Sports Illustrated to throw in the 'roids angle

    Authorities also said they are investigating whether steroids may have been a factor in the deaths of Benoit, his wife and their 7-year-old son who were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide.

  21. And you know they will find them in the house.

  22. If you check, steroids is already a discussion. It alsolooks like he hung himself in his gym.

  23. **** the media. Just because Benoit was famous, this is a huge story. They're ignoring the fact that he murdered his 7-yr old son, and going straight to the steroids story. Chances are they'll find metabolites in his bloodstream. Then what?

  24. besdies the steroid issue, much of this was known to the WWE last night, and they gave a tribute to this jackass. That is pathetic
