The more I learn about this whole thing, the more I believe there actually is a real for real conspiracy that went on here...
Let's look at the timeline
Wife dead Firday
Child dead Saturday
Pay-per-vie event Sunday
Chris dead Monday
Chris was a star. He was scheduled to be involved in that pay-per-view as a major feature. There's a hell of a lot of money involved in pro-wrestling
and WWE isn't a minor organization.
It stands to reason that if such a major event was happening in their star's life as to disrupt his participation in a large money making event, they
would send someone to talk to him. At the very least, there would have been a lot of discussion over the phone trying to convince him to go through
with his part in the show.
I find is very difficult to believe that he could have possibly been out of contact for 2 days after killing his wife.
I find it very difficult to believe that his employers would not be alarmed by one of their stars suddenly cutting communication.
I find it very difficult to believe that any modern corporation would not make moves to protect their investments.
Now here's the thing. the WWE had two investments on the line here. They had Chris, their star, and they had the upcoming pay-per-view event. If it
came out that Benoit had killed his wife and child before the scheduled pay-per-view, one would expect that a large number of customers would cancel
their bookings or simply not buy in at show time.
I suspect that the "rumor" could have been real discloser in the face of an active suppression of information. The WWE was making moves to protect
their pay-per-view revenues by not allowing the information out.
They still have a crap load of damage control to do here, regardless.
Watch the media engine go to work over the next while as the WWE and the industry as a whole attempts to distance itself from the tragedy that it
"Wrestling has consumed my life," Benoit would say, according to WWE. "It’s my mistress, my passion. It defines a lot of who I am as a
"Consumed my life".
"Defines a lot of who I am as a person".
What is pro wrestling? What is it that Chris was being defined as?
It's violence for the purpose of entertainment.
Benoit, and every other pro wrestler, was conditioned to be a violence engine. To act brutish. To appear threatening. To resolve conflict with
Lump in massive pressure to use steroids, the stress that comes with fame, and the recreational narcotics that we all know celebrities like to indulge
in, and you've got yourself an industry manufactured timebomb.
Now you might think I'm going a little overboard...
So he wigged out... it's no one's fault, right?
Of course the corporations should move to protect their investments, right?
Yeah, well... it F:censored:king p:censored:s me off any and every
time I see human suffering inflicted at the hands of greedy fat cats.
