    For those don't know he was a professional wrestler.

    Yes I know it's fake but I grew up on this stuff, tough to see one of the best go.

    What's strange was how he was found.

    He was found with his wife and son, all dead in their home. And that's all we know.

    I just read this on a blog...

    Apparantly he left work on Saturday because he got a call saying his wife and son were ill and they didn't know the cause. he made it home, and they all died overnight from a gas leak in the home.

    horrible.

    glad mcmahon opened the show the way he did.

    its sure sad.. but i havent been able to find anymore info on it.. but the gas leak seems like a probable reason...

    That's what I thought- it was a new house after all.

    I was flicking through the channels and stopped at wrestling- haven't watched in over a year. I got excited to see a Benoit match on (my all time favorite wrestler, I always enjoyed the sport side of it, not the drama acting side that it is today). My excitement quickly turned to sadness when I realized what had happened.

    I can honestly say that he is the greatest I have ever seen. His matched with Jericho, Eddie, Malenko, and Kurt Angle were absolute top notch. He will surely be missed.

    Sad news. I was always a fan of Benoit, I can't even believe it's true.

    From WWE.com

    Pretty crazy. I stopped watching wrestling a few years ago, but I remember Benoit was consistently entertaining. Crazy if what investigators believe is true :/

    That's a shocker. He was certainly one of the greats.

    this is creepy. if you read WWE.com right now, you'll see that soon after Benoit was found dead, they aired a 3 hour long show about his career. now it turns out the man flipped and did the killing...

    suspected i'd say. as the autopsies and toxicology reports haven't been released, and information in general is rather lacking.

    sad situation all around though.

    Why not reserve judgement for when all the evidence is obtained and looked at? :(

    Totally lost respect for this guy.

    And to top it all off, he ruined McMahon's plot for the show! :mad:

    Can't agree with you more. Sad how I can go from having tremendous respect for a person to absolute nothing. Very, very sad. Horrible. :(

    Roid rage.
