I used to watch wrestling back when it was the WWF with my roommate from England. It was fun, and it beat watching Ally McBeal. And I remember Chris Benoit. He was a decent wrestler but didn’t really have the magnetism of a Mick Foley or Rick Flair.
To hear the news that Benoit killed his wife and 7-year old son in a murder-suicide is absolutely tragic.
But what’s worse is to air a “3-hour tribute” to Benoit as a wrestler.
The WWE canceled its live “Monday Night RAW” card in Corpus Christi, Texas, and USA Network aired a three-hour tribute to Benoit in place of the scheduled wrestling telecast.
I understand there’s money to be made, but the man just slaughtered his wife and his child before killing himself. That’s not something we should be offering a tribute to.
