    I'm not trying to be rude because this may be true, but are there any legitimate news sources running this story. I just don't know what to believe from Wrestling these days.

    I guess it could be an "angle". Didn't they have some death angle people got all shitty over a few weeks ago?

    But there's some stuff here

    Apparently, he had to go home for an emergency and they said he might not make the ppv last night. That's sad. I understand he really was a nice guy.

    Yeah he missed the ppv last night and the WWE is running a story right now where Mr. McMahon was killed in a explosion but i doubt that this is part of it. I've been watching wrestling for 20 years now and yes i know its fake but Chris Benoit was one of the best and one of my favorites. My heart goes out to those who have lost Chris and his family. :(

    this is just an awful coincidence.

    Vince McMahon, who plays the character "Mr McMahon" on WWE programming had his part killed off in a limo explosion. It was all a part of TV, just like any soap opera where someone is murdered.

    Tonight's Raw was part of the McMahon tribute, but it's now going to be on the life of Chris Benoit.

    Makes you wonder though......they say that there going to scrap the McMahon memorial for tonight, is he going to show up and say a few words or are they going to keep the story line going during the memorial.

    Oh this is horrible news...I don't know why but it seems that a lot of pro wrestlers have had tragic deaths in one fashion or another.

    My prayers go out to his family...

    He was one of my all time favorites...

    The guy had an incredible passion and devotion to the business.

    I'm somewhat flabbergasted.

    Holy Sh*t!!! I can't believe this.... :cry  He was a kick ass wrestler.... First Eddie Guerrero dies, now Chris Benoit is found dead. I am sorry to hear that such great wrestlers have passed on. My condolences to the Benoit family and friends of the Rabid Wolverine. :rip  Chris Benoit

    Okay, I feel bad for the guy, but what really gets me? On the page at WWE.com where they give the brief, they couldn't even ditch the Escalade and "what Diva is this?" ads. now that's sad.
