Chris Benoit Update

Posted by Kimberly on June 28th, 2007


This is depressing…

This story keeps getting worse and worst. Most of us have already heard that Chris’ son suffered from mental retardation. More specific reports are saying he had a condition called Fragile X Syndrome, a condition associated with cognitive disabilities and autism that causes physical and sensory problems and language delays as well. His wife Nancy Benoit had wanted him to spend more time at home taking care of their son, but she didn’t want him to stop wrestling.

And now Vince McMahon, the WWE chairman has spoken out on the tragedy saying “Steroids may or may not have had anything to do with this, It’s all speculation until the toxicology reports come back. This is not an act of rage, this is an act of deliberation. … a horrific tragedy. It happened in pro wrestling. There’s a rush to judgment. There’s almost a hysteria around us.” He also adds that Benoit was “a mild-mannered individual. … There was no way of telling this man was a monster.” I think it was obvious the whole thing was planned after the cell phone text messages were released. But still, I have a feeling drugs played a big part in this.
