One Too Many Flying Headbuts

Chris Benoit, the formerly awesome midget wrestler of WCW and WWF fame, was found dead in his Georgia home along with his wife and 7 year old son.

Investigators believe Benoit, (pronounced ben-WAH) killed his wife and son over the weekend and then himself sometime Monday. The bodies were found Monday afternoon in three different rooms of the house on Green Meadow Lane, in a subdivision off a gravel road about two miles from the Whitewater Country Club.
Investigators believe the cause of death was multiple leg drops. Randy Savage is being sought for questioning.

What, too soon?

Sorry, in all seriousness, this is just crazy sad. Benoit was one of my favorite wrestlers growing up, but my tasteless sense of humor sometimes gets the best of me. Similarly, the WWE wasted no time in acting in equally bad taste by airing a 3 hour tribute to a suspected murderer in place of Raw last night.

Our thoughts go out to Benoit's and his wife's families. Tragic.
