I used to watch wrestling religiously, knowing all along that it'* all just a show. While I haven't watched in a very long time, I still understand a lot about the business, both on-stage and off.
Now that this has been stated...
Anytime you ever watch wrestling in it'* normal advertising campaigns and shows it'* pretty much a typewritten storyline from start to finish. Anytime ANYTHING
like this has happened, an official press release is made and/or things come to a halt for a day or two. I've noticed some people talking about "fake-death hoaxes"
and the sort, but how can you really call them that? If a soap opera such as Days of Our Lives or General Hospital kills off a character, that doesn't mean that it'* a 'hoax'. It'* all part of the storyline. The same is true about the wrestling world. It'* still an entertainment business and unfortunately as they say "The show must go on."
Besides, even when Vince was supposedly killed in the limo, don't you think it would be a little weird to believe that when he still walks into the office on Monday morning?
Anyways, all that aside, I remember Benoit was a great showman and a wonderful guy off-camera, and I'll be sad if this turns out to be what they suspect. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family/friends...
