Benoit

<  Benoit

Years ago when I watched pro wrestling, Chris Benoit was one of my favorite performers. This news is really bizarre.

Renowned pro wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife and their 7-year-old-son, were found dead Monday afternoon in their Fayetville, Ga. home, Atlanta police said.

Details of the deaths “are going to prove a little bizarre” when released to the public, Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Autopsies were scheduled Tuesday by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation in DeKalb County, according to the Associated Press.

Investigators believe Benoit, 40, killed his wife Nancy and son Daniel over the weekend, and then himself sometime Monday.

WWE Monday night canceled its scheduled live 3-hour “Monday Night RAW” program, which coincidentally was originally billed as a “memorial service” for WWE chairman Vince McMahon, whose character was recently killed off in a controversial scripted storyline.

McMahon opened the show from center ring in an empty arena and clarified that Benoit and his family had died “in reality.” McMahon called Benoit “one of the greatest WWE superstars of all-time.”

It is sad. I have been a fan for years, and to think that a great wrestler did such a thing makes my mind numb.
