In memory of Chris Benoit.
Yesterday, the world of wrestling once again was struck by a tragedy. Superstar Chris Benoit, 40-years old, his wife Nancy and his son Daniel were found dead in their house. A painful reality check for WWE once again. Police investigation is pointing towards a double-murder followed by a suicide. Steroids has also been found in the gym of Benoit's house. A tragic ending that shocked the entire wrestling world.
The news was so shocking that Vince McMahon has put an end his stupid fake death scenario of a few weeks ago to pay tribute to this unique athlete. Yesterday, monday night RAW was modified into a 3-hour tribute to the career of the Montreal native. Many of Benoit's great matches were presented for the fans to remember his now legendary career.
Fans had one last opportunity yesterday to appreciate his talent in various matches from his victory in the 2004 Royal Rumble to his Wrestlemania XX main event victory where he earned his only WWE heavyweight world title, the pinnacle of his professional career.
Also, many of his colleagues went in front of the camera and talked about Benoit, a good man, a loving husband and father. Stone cold Steve Austin and John Cena only to name those gave us their thoughts on the man they respected and loved. Interviews with his mother and father about the life and times of their son was also presented.
A tragic end for a champion.
