The Latest on Chris Benoit

Crazy, R.I.P.
Chris Benoit

I’m going to start of by admitting that I’m not a fan of “pro” wrestling, so if you are, just move right along past this.

I don’t get the idea of staged fights with muscle-bound folks as entertainment. I get that some people seem to enjoy it, but I don’t understand WHY. There seems to be a very Neanderthal-like mindset around it.

So I wasn’t particularly surprised when news broke about Chris Benoit killing his wife and son then offing himself, nor that he was using steroids. The whole thing is so fakey to begin with, why not have a psycho willing to abuse his body for the part?

But when I see the Daily News item that suggests that he was injecting his SEVEN-YEAR-OLD son with human growth hormone because he was small? That’s when I start hoping this industry gets an full anal probe from The Powers That Be.

Even worse are the rocket scientist “fans” who are still insisting that some INTRUDER did all this. Apparently, there are a lot of folks who got out of line the day reality was handed out. Because if you believe this guy was as tough and athletic as the scripts told you he was, it would probably take an army to hold him captive for three days to do all that, don’t you think? Or else he wasn’t tough, wrestling IS fake and those gits should be pissed and crying their eyes out over being duped. You can’t have it both ways. Eitehr the guy was a psycho or he was a pussy. Pick one.

  • I hope the bastard rots in hell for what he did to that child. The person who was supposed to protect him and love him unconditionally murders him. Dirty rotten bastard.

  • check the facts, maybe it was more complicated:

  • DD, I’m with ya! Aaron, what’s more complicated. For the first time in my life I agree with something that came out of Vince McMahon’s mouth; Benoit was a monster. Ever met a kid with Fragile X? They generally have a low- to mid- level of functioning autism.

    Taking steroids is an excuse for that? Or having a kid with specials needs drove him to it? Because I’m not finding any sort of rationale for what he did either way.

  • What Dirty said. I hope Benoit screwed up his knot and took a long time to shuffle off, the prick. Fragile X kids are small. The sick f*ck bastard.

    Sorry, having a bad day, but kids getting in the way when their asshat parents go boom sort of ticks me off.
