Firstly I am not seeking attention, secondly if you are going to attack me just like you have attacked Jason Kites, don't bother...just ignore me if you don't like my comments, but as my personal motto, the truth is always painful even for me..

I used to respect Chris Benoit, why cause he was such a great technical wrestler, and a hard worker. Whenever I saw his matches, it was like seeing someone give his 120 percent in the ring.

So when that horrible tragedy took place, I was seething at anger at this guy, and at myself for supporting this monster. WWE completely wiped him out, the fans wiped him out, and that's the end of it, right?

NOT, to me there is always a reason behind things, Chris Benoit was not a murderer, he didn't have any convictions until then, what snapped in him?

I am not going to explore that or justify anything, I can't do that. But what I can do is to expose WWE and some of the fans (P.S. NOTE, SOME NOT ALL YOU GUYS)

What happened was something we can't possibly understand, but what I have read, and understood is this throughout his career he based himself on Dynamite Kid, the moves he had were risky especially the head butt from the top of the post.

I once saw a ladder match at Wrestlemania, and even though you could hear the fans getting so excited, when you see Chris Benoit holding his left arm and shaking like anything, I knew this guy was pushing himself too much.

Throughout his career, people cheered for him but when that tragedy happened, we all forgot about him, what he did before and booed him and ignored him.

I think that's a tragedy because, I don't know where this quote comes from but here it goes..,"People are not bad or evil, it's the actions that they do are either good or bad."

Yes, what he did was inexcusable but WWE and the fans should realise, that to forget is a mistake because it could have happened again...we have to learn from it and not forget that he did some good things in life....

People would ask me, what's the point of this.. here is my point even though it may be controversial...here it is...

Induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame next year, simple it's not going to happen, but remember one thing..

You cheered him when he was wrestling doing those high risk moves, getting concussions, now you boo him for something you don't understand.

I don't hate him for something I can't understand, it could be the concussions, the drugs he was taking, I don't know but I do know that I cheered him when he was in the wrestling ring, that is the Chris Benoit I will respect...

Where can I comment?
