He died just today

Vince himself started the show saying tonights storyline was his alleged demise and said that in reailty he, her wifr, and their son is dead.

looks like it shaping up to be a murder suicide as I guessed a little earlier. My heart goes out to them, maybe this will be an end to the whole fake death hoaxes.

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...

Peace

Did anybody see the Nancy Grace story on it? She was trying to make him sound like the most horrible man on the planet.

I'd hate to break it to you, but what he did was pretty horrible. Even if it was because of steroids, that'* his responsibility. If I shoot up on some drug like speed and do the same thing, I wouldn't expect any mercy because I was on drugs.

Then again, I really hate Nancy Grace.
