The Georgia authorities lied. I figured it out. I saw Chris Benoit and his family's killers —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kidslam2000 (talkcontribs) 05:57, 21 January 2008


Terrible, terrible news. Awaiting more details, but this could potentially get much worse over the next few days. Rest in peace... RhYnoECfnW 01:21, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Tribute[edit]

WWE unusually provided a 3 hour long tribute that was not even properly conducted by the company. This is probably the most the disgusting thing i had to witness with my eyes and ears. A man died for God's sake!! should'nt he have been deserved a sympathetic tribute? a tribute show just like the one Eddie Guerrero had?? what kind of a lowdown,heinous company is this anyway??? i detest everything the WWE has failed to do for Chris Benoit. Instead, they just put on a cheap video from benoit's Hard Knock's dvd and ran it into the air like a pathetic home video consisting a load of dum videos and dishonest condolensces. This is outrageous! at least you could've given this man the respective memorial he deserved. I dont care the least bit if benoit murdered his wife and son and then hanging himself, he was my favourite wrestler out of all the wwe superstars and the only wrestler who who instilled good faith and confidence in me and inspired me to always do your best and give a hundred-percent in everything no matter what. Now i dont make you all seem that i'm in love with him but im saying all this because i respected more than any ordinary fan would and thats the truth and as for WWE i sincerely regret to ever watch your show and now i clean my eyes with soap. But listen, i am not finished just yet, the power to make the decisions are yours you already erased a dead man's memory from your respective "WWE FAMILY" and also to worsen his desecrate his memory more you couldn't even put together a decent remembering tribute to Benoit's soul. But i guess its always about the publicity is'nt it? a man who killed & suicided does'nt really fit well with the fans you think just because a person who murdered and died in his own hands fans will start dispersing away from your precious buisness well get real you thick heads!! we do care, we care what happened to Benoit and his family and if you ever want redeem his memory which can still be done if u make a quick decision then i suggest that you induct him into the WWE HALL OF FAME just to keep his name alive and that his accomplishments can be well-read and respected in the future. Better get started now. (preceding unsigned comment made by Endlesslearner) WWE seems awfully quick to get a 3-hour tribute on the air. Was it prepared in advance? --SVTCobra 01:44, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Don't know...I am not even sure this is real. The WWE is known for stunts like this and it has been a Failing Company for years. This will definitely get more viewers. Although no matter how much I think it may be a hoax, the sources say otherwise. DragonFire1024 01:57, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
LIVE TV now on FOX News: This is indeed true. DragonFire1024 02:01, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
Actually, what I was trying to insinuate was that the WWE knew ahead of time. Not that Benoit wasn't killed. --SVTCobra 02:06, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
Well, I think it'd be pretty easy to get it all ready, being that a lot of the stuff is being taken from the DVD they released a couple of years back, plus just live thoughts from various people.RhYnoECfnW 02:12, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
the reason WWE already had a 3hr show planned was because they were going to pay tribute to mr. mcmahon's "death"
this really happened.--69.214.113.137 07:11, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

IT SHAMEFULL AND NEGLIGENT THAT A WORLD FAMOUS SHOW "WWE" BROADCAST TO "TRIBUTE" TO DOUBLE MURDERER, NOT TO MENTION HE MURDERED HIS OWN FAMILY AND EVEN HIS 7 YEAR OLD SON.

- at the time the tribute was aired it was not yet suspected to be a murder-suicide by the WWE but a murder. The 3 hour tribute has since been removed from air.
World famous? WWE is a pile of steaming <multiple expletives deleted>. It's more fake than Paula Yate's breasts. --Brian McNeil / talk 10:55, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

I personally do not believe that Chris Benoit was emotionally capable of such a horiffic task as killing his wife and his 7 year old son.... They were everything to him the whole reason he kept wrestling at the age of 40 when most guys have already retired... REST IN PEACE CHRIS BENIOT WE WILL MISS YOU.....

Doesn't sound like Chris!!!!!!![edit]

The news of losing Chris Benoit & his family came as a HUGE shock,but not as huge as hearing he killed them & then took his own life! For the life of me I cannot figure out why more people do not believe Chris has been set up!This was a man who loved his family more then anything else in life even his career! Who's to say that someone (even close to them a driver or something) didn't do this for some awful reason & wait for days to hang Chris only to make it look as though he snapped! If I am wrong & Chris the man we all loved did in fact take 3 lives that day then God forgive me for feeling so sorry for him & his family & friends who have had to endure him being "drug through the mud!" If I am right though & it was a set up & he did not kill anyone including himself then may God forgive all of you who have been so quick to speak & judge! When it comes down to it though I will always remember Chris for the talented,hard working,dedicated,loving & caring man he was! May God be with both families & friends who are hurting & left with so many questions! As for Chris we may never know what took place that terrible weekend,but God does & Chris if you did fall apart & do this may God forgive you! May we all pray for justice,truth & peace for the loved ones involved! As for the WWE things got out of hand on there years ago & the men & women in the business are the ones that pay the price for it week in & week out! Vince should feel like a real *sshole! To think they faked his death for more money (like he doesn't have enough) & then we lose Benoit & his family! Boy,Vince already looked like a complete fool,but after having to show his face Monday night he looked like a HUGE F****** *SSHOLE! Does he have any shame at all? It would appear not! Rest in peace Benoit family! You will be sadly missed,but NEVER forgotten!

Chris Benoit kicked out of the Hall of Fame[edit]

I hate what the WWE has done to the memory of Chris Benoit they no longer metion him or anything and they eve through him out of the Hall of Fame! That really pissed me and my sister off, I ould care less how he died (though god rest his soul) It matters to me how he lived he was a great man and a an awsome wrestler that I looked up to. And though some idiot out there will disagree say 'Oh but he killed his family and he took drugs' Yeah well I don't care he was a great man and he loved his family and I don't buy his soo called homicide/suicide thing, they only assumed it because they examined the brain in which doesnt give me much of a reson to blame him it only proves that Benoit was suffering. NOw WWE I really am disappointed not only to your trubite,you no longer metioning his name but also because you kicked a very hard working man that was a hero to the fans out of your so called Hall of Fame...

I have to say I really didn't like the article.UP there were I have to rate the story it would all be pore if I wouldn't of lied.I would say who ever wrote the story would give more detail on why Chris did this.And the paragraph is old there not still on investigation there done and over with the story now.And there is some people out there who don't even know what asphyxiation means.If I were you I would yous parentheses and tell what the word means.And why would this be on TMZ.com this is HORRIBLE,not something the people can joke about.Oh Chris Benoit killed both of his family members then hung himself hahahaha lol.NO NOT FUNNY AT ALL. All i am saying is you need a lot of improvement on www.Wikipedia.org.My name is A y and this is what i think of Wikipedia.org. —66.61.34.81 (talk) 21:05, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Comments from feedback form - "I do blame wwe for some of thi..."[edit]

I do blame wwe for some of this because they allow there wrestlers to use steroids. I think there should be a law about all steroid use unless its for medical reasons. I do think Eddie gerero and chris benoit would be alive with chris benoit son and wife if there was a law. I think all wrestlers should have a drug test done every month as well. I dont agree with what chris benoit did to his family. But like I said if there was a law about it we would have 2 great wrestlers still. —24.22.100.253 (talk) 04:39, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

It is such a shame that Benoit did that to a poor little boy a helpless child and what he did to his wife is a shame too. —108.3.78.63 (talk) 05:31, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Terrible[edit]

Its terrible that the WWE refuses to acknowledge that benoit is always was a competitor...The whole double murder suicide was something terrible but that should not change our perception of him as he had to face his many demons...I hope the WWE will see the error of their ways and at least include him in the hall of fame
