R.I.P. Chris Benoit...

...and Nancy & Daniel.

Well, if you were to ask me how I thought Chris Benoit was gonna go out, "double murder-suicide" wouldn't have been on my list, goddammit.

I've been watching Chris do his thing for over 20 years. Although it was Hogan that made me a fan, Chris and the late Owen Hart made me appreciate skill and agility.

I, like a number of you, wonder what drove Chris to do such a thing. It truly doesn't add up. Of course, there's really no logical equation, either.

This has been a dark couple of weeks, as we also lost Sherri Martel and Benoit's one-time tag partner Shane "Biff Wellington" Bower.

My heart goes out to the rest of the Benoit family during this tragic time.

Scott Keith has somewhat summed up my feelings, although they fluctuate by the minute.

Y'all take care of each other, okay?

Plain stupid. I know these too-common occurrances in the industry are sad, and even unrelated to one another, but there's gonna be some form of federal commission into this before soon.

I know you were a big fan, mebbe the biggest, so I feel for ya Al.

Thanks, man. I'm totally conflicted right now.

Well...not conflicted. Just upset at the two really stupid decisions he made. It's all just fucked up.
