Post Paris Hilton news or wrestler stories? I choose this one...
<a href="http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D8Q0KO801&show_article=1">ATLANTA (AP) - Pro wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife and smothered his son before hanging himself in his weight room, a law enforcement official close to the investigation told The Associated Press on Tuesday.</a>

Newswise, this is a gut punch right in the trailer park.

I have to say that Benoit's actions were horrible
However, I would like to say that he was in my top 5 best wrestlers of all time
The man was a consummate professional
Loved by his fans
Respected by his peers
The most intense action I have ever seen has involved Benoit
He and Kurt Angle made the most formidable tag team I have ever seen
Chris Benoit has made me say "HOLY FUCK!?!?!" more times than I can count

Just remember this
The life of a professional wrestler is much like the life of a touring musician
Except you get the shit kicked out of you every night
The man has been wrestling since before I can remember and he was undoubtedly a victim of the lifestyle
The only drug I can suggest that may have been at fault was steroids

Benoit wrestled constantly with several injuries as well
The purest athlete in the entire history of the company, Kurt Angle, was a shining example of how the business can wear you down after he became addicted to painkillers
I guess that happens when you have a broken neck that never gets a chance to heal because you have yo go on the road for 3 months straight
Benoit also had neck problems but avoided painkillers

I'm not condoning his actions
Just asking you to cut these guys some slack
No one on this board will never achieve the level of accomplishment that Chis Benoit did
It is a pity that his life ended this way

BTW
Not all of us are Trailer Park trash
I love wrestling for it's audacity and incredible athleticism
Not to mention that professional wrestling is a barometer for the social consciousness of the common man
In other words
If it's on the lips of Joe 6 pack, Vince is going to use it in a story line
Shame on you for feeling superior

You need strength and skill to pull off what they do, otherwise you'd severely injure or kill yourself. In that way, they're similar to stunt men.

I haven't thought what they did was real wrestling since I watched All-Star Wrestling on Sunday mornings as a kid (Baron Von Raske rules!), but knowing what I know about professional "wrestling" forces me the grudgingly respect the shows they put on.

Man!
Thanks for bringing that to my attention
I guess that means I can never watch another movie again
Or TV show
Or listen to an album
Or see a band play
Or read a book
Or watch Cirque De Solieil (sorry if I misspelled it)
I will only consume entertainment that is "real"
All of these things were obviously rehearsed
Unless you are talking about Jazz

You have no idea whatsoever why people watch wrestling
Therefore, your comments have no validity

Im pretty sure most people know its fake. Thats not the point.
And yes, the kind of athleticism needed to be as convincing as possible that you are beating someone to death while causing as little damage is possible, is insane. The kind of rigorous training these guys subject themeselves to is insane.

Im sure a lot of people like it because it ISNT real.

well, I don't have any idea why people watch it either, but the dictionary says this:

<b>ath'lete</b>
NOUN: A person possessing the natural or acquired traits, such as strength, agility, and endurance, that are necessary for physical exercise or sports, especially those performed in competitive contexts.

<b>fake</b>
ADJECTIVE: Having a false or misleading appearance; fraudulent.
NOUN: 1. One that is not authentic or genuine; a sham. 2. Sports A brief feint or aborted change of direction intended to mislead one's opponent or the opposing team.
