Hello all my amigos and amigas, I'm back on the happiest website on the face of the Earth! Due to my dear friend, Jev's urging, I will (painfully) not use either 'ese' or 'homes' in this article. I might use it toward the end but not really too much. Just an FYI to all my new readers: You will not, I repeat, WILL NOT hear any BS in any of my articles. I write straight from the heart. None of that Wikipedia crap here. Lets begin then. (Clears Throat)
On the fateful day of June 24, 2007, Chris Benoit ended the life of his son, his wife and himself. Cops were there for days and it seemed really really tragic. But lets start at the beginning:
I probably wasn't alive when Chris Benoit made his splash on the wrestling world as Pegasus Kid or when he came into ECW, but next to Eddie Guerrero, he was one of my favorite wrestlers! I used to put (or would try) the sharpshooter and the crippler crossface on my teddy bears.
He was the best damn techinical wrestler I had ever seen in my young life and he had the pops to match. Oh, watch out in Canada, they blew the roof off that place! From German Suplexes to the flying headbutt, he was pure excitement all the way through!
But what I can't get my head around is why people continue to hate on his professional career when it was personal life that went awry.
Dammit! I believe that he felt his career was slowing down, so he had to take extreme measures to have that assurance again. I believe that deep down, the guy who killed his wife and child was NOT Chris Benoit. It was an evil monster known as steroids that did that.
I'm gonna get a lot of flack for this but if we think about it, Chris Benoit deserves to be in the Hall of Fame! He made a hell of an impact on the wrestling world
and does not deserve to be shunned due to his stupid, PERSONAL mistakes.
Thanks for your time ese, and please leave your comments and thoughts below.
