I don't mean to burst anybody's triple-murder bubble here, but someone please explain this to me:

If Chris Benoit really is innocent if Kevin Sullivan or the One-Armed Man or whomever else is actually the culprit how did Benoit end up hanging from a piece of home gym equipment?

I'm neither a diehard wrestling fan nor a crack detective, but something doesn't add up. Benoit was a big dude. Like, a really big dude. The idea that someone Sullivan or anyone else could somehow overpower him enough to hang him from a cable pulley is absurd.

In fact, it's worse than absurd.

It's outright impossible.

And unless Chris Benoit was dead before the hanging, there's no way anyone else was responsible.

If them ain't the facts, boys and girls, then my name ain't Joe Cottage.
