WWE Chris Benoit and Family Dead

Recommended Posts

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.

wwe raw was cancelled last night to show a 3 hour tribute to chris and his family, and the showed sum of huis greatst wrestling matches, and sum of his fellow wrestling peers talked about him, and they were all crying and sobbing :cry2: it was really touching to be honest.

like EDGE, Chavo Gurerro, Triple H. where those three who cried the most. and this other guy.

but it was so sad. and at the end, tey showed chris's match at wrestlemania where he won the title finally, and eddie gurerro came out and they where raising arms together, and those two arent here anymore :cry:

RIP u two

he killed his wife, son and himself on different days.. so they doubt its roid rage. plus there wasnt like beatings or anything, first strangled his wife then smothered his son.. :(

so sad for the 7 year old boy and his wife.

right before he hanged himself he sent 5 text messages to friends, which prompted them to ask WWF officials to check up on him..
