The Beast Honors: Chris Benoit

Chris Benoit, the great wrestling champion, is dead. He, his wife, and his son were found dead in their Atlanta home on Monday. Benoit has been one of the most respected and talented wrestlers in the world for years. Reports are investigating the deaths as a possible double-murder and suicide, which is just difficult to believe. I first saw Benoit wrestle on the now defunct WCW Monday Nitro. This is just terrible news.

I just heard about this a few minutes ago. I too first saw him wrestle on Nitro back in the day. He's the second member of the group of 4 (Guerrero, Saturn, Benoit, and Malenko) that left WCW for the WWF a few years ago to pass away way too soon. His wife was a former valet in the business in WCW, her character's name was Woman. This is very, very sad.

The Wolverine was a tenacious competitor and a good entertainer. The Crippler Cross Face looked like it would work as a legitimate submission hold. This is such a tragedy for that family.
