Yet another reason Ninja Boy won’t be allowed to watch professional wresting:
WWE wrester Chris Benoit, his wife and seven year old son were found dead in their Atlanta home Monday afternoon after an apparent murder-suicide. (Article.)
To HONOR Benoit, WWE cancelled Monday Night Raw and USA aired a THREE HOUR TRIBUTE to Benoit.
I would like to think that it was a quick decision made by a higher up who was just too darned busy to think that maybe Benoit was responsible.
But let’s look at the facts: a 220 pound professional wrestler cancels appearances citing “family emergencies,” then is found dead with his family (he was in a separate room) with two giant German Shepard guard dogs roaming the property.
I just don’t think I could have assumed anything other than “BENOIT WAS A PSYCHO.” I definitely would NOT have run a *special* to *honor* him.
Sorry to any wrestling fans out there – but THIS is what is wrong with our country! “Yeah, he did murder his wife and his SEVEN YEAR OLD boy, but he was a really good WRESTLER and we should HONOR him.”
Save the honor for those who DESERVE it!
Update: Lest you think I was being too harsh...
