    Chris Benoit, family found dead
    Written: June 25, 2007STAMFORD, Conn., June 25, 2007 – World Wrestling Entertainment was informed today by authorities in Fayetteville County, Ga., that WWE Superstar Chris Benoit, his wife, Nancy, and his son were found dead in their home.
    Authorities are investigating, but no other details are available at this time.

    Instead of its announced programming for tonight on USA Network, WWE will air a three-hour tribute to Chris Benoit.



    Chris was beloved among his fellow Superstars, and was a favorite among WWE fans for his unbelievable athleticism and wrestling ability.
    He always took great pride in his performance, and always showed respect for the business he loved, for his peers and towards his fans.
    This is a terrible tragedy and an unbearable loss.

    WWE extends its sincere condolences and prayers to the Benoit family and loved ones in this time of tragedy.

    Probably CO poisoning... thats sad. He was a tough dude, I remember the crippler crossface.



    And not to be a total dick, but "RIP peace" is redundant, the P in RIP means peace

    I remember watching him wrestle when I was younger. This comes as a shocker to me. I wonder what could have caused the death of all three of them. Murder? I hope not.
    who knows... RIP Benoit family

    This really is a sad event.
    I'm not sure what I can say other than I've been watching Benoit wrestle for some time now.
    I always that he was awsome because of how tough he was, he wasn't afraid of anything.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    I said CO poisoning before, but now that I read "found slain" my opinion has changed... and I have no clue what happened, or why someone would do that.

    " Or as we call the list here at CBS SportsLine.com, the 50 dudes you've always wanted to punch in the face."

    I'd say 95% of people would rather punch TO in the face than Randy Moss, or really anyone on this list.
