I got myself and Martha two floor seats to New Years Revolution, the big Pay Per Veiw WWE is shooting at the Pepsi Arena in Albany. I'm amped. :) This isn't my first WWE event, but it's my first Pay Per Veiw, and first time at a wrestling show with floor seats. ;D

That completely sucks and sounds pretty shady too, to use a phrase I never use...  It's sad enough if he and his wife died, but kids too?  I don't know the details there but if there's children involved that's just horrible.  I hate to jump to conclusions on it but one has to think someone like Benoit would have $$$ and be a target for that kind of a crime.  :(

Sorry Jason, I know that sucks for you as a fan too...  It'd be like me reading one of my favorite NHL'ers died or some such.  I thought at first this might be a joke/storyline thing but I guess not.

I can't truly express the grief I feel right now. I don't think the shock has actually worn off yet. Benoit has always been a favorite performer of mine, and the wrestling world has truly lost one of it's greatist talents. :'( :'( :'(

Most of the reports seem to be indicating, at this time anyway, that it appears to be a double murder-suicide, meaning Benoit killed his wife and son, then himself.  Not good.

Even worse when the report I heard this morning says that he didn't kill himself until a full day later.

This from CNN:

Report: Wrestler strangled wife, smothered son

A law enforcement official close to the investigation tells The Associated Press that pro wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife and smothered his son before hanging himself in the weight room of the family's suburban Atlanta home. Authorities also said they are investigating whether steroids may have been a factor in the deaths.

And seriously, what's a murder/suicide/violent crime story without a friend or acquaintance adding this line:

"I saw him with his family all the time," said Baswell. "They always seemed like they were the happiest people."

I say that report as well. It changes the whole tribute thing. I seems like most of it was pulled from the WWE website and smackdown/ecw will be taped as planned.

Yeah the tribute really isn't necessary anymore now that it's come to light that he was a suicidal, homicidal maniac.

I think the wife probably told him she wanted a divorce, was taking the kid, and leaving him.  So he killed them both then killed himself.

It probably wasn't over something like dinner not being ready on time.
