The Mirror Image Of Myself

R.I.P Chris Benoit

Posted in Asides, Entertainment, News, Sports by zenmaster on June 26, 2007

Whilst searching for the latest news on Digg, I was shocked by the news of WWE professional wrestler (to a certain extend, actor) Chris Benoit found dead in his home together with his wife and children. The news isn’t fabricated like Mr. McMahon’s death. It’s real. R.I.P Chris. You’ll be missed. 😦

STAMFORD, Conn., June 25, 2007 – World Wrestling Entertainment was informed today by authorities in Fayette County, Ga., that WWE Superstar Chris Benoit, his wife, Nancy, and his son were found dead in their home. Authorities are investigating, but no other details are available at this time.

Instead of its announced programming for Monday on USA Network, WWE aired a three-hour tribute to Chris Benoit.

Chris was beloved among his fellow Superstars, and was a favorite among WWE fans for his unbelievable athleticism and wrestling ability. He always took great pride in his performance, and always showed respect for the business he loved, for his peers and towards his fans. This is a terrible tragedy and an unbearable loss.

WWE extends its sincere condolences and prayers to the Benoit family and loved ones in this time of tragedy.

    I miss his triple German suplexes and Crippler’s Crossface.

    Reminder to you, please don’t copy for title or you’ll ended up pasting the uber long post. Please type it instead. 🙂

    Rumors said that Chris might involved in the murder-suicide. Never knew a bloke who is calm and strong on outside, can be depressed and tormented on the inside.

    Thank you for the reminder. Will learn from my mistake.
