    A tribute is on tonights raw. Its still a mystery what has happened. I gave up on the WWE last week because of the fake Mcmahons death. I just hope they don't bring it up on raw tonight, or it will be in real poor taste.

    This is awful. I hear from another source that it was actually homicide, although they don't say who actually commited the homicide. Right now it doesn't seem like a natural death, anyway.

    If someone did kill them all, I truly hope they find the bastard that did this. They say it wasn't a gunshot, so unless it was via gasing them to death (unlikely?) it would of had to have been a blade of some kind. So chances of suicide is unlikely.

    If that was the case, wouldn't there be a doctor there or something?

    For this type of news I don't think the smiley icon is suited. May dead men rest.

    I've never heard of vomiting blood being a symptom of CO poisoning. Wikipedia doesn't seem to list it as a symptom either (I just skimmed it though).

    If I got a call that my wife and kid were vomitting blood, I'd call 911 and get them help. I doubt that's how it went. He would have had to stay around a good amount of time, without getting help, to then get enough CO to kill himself as well.

    I went to go see RAW tonight to see what would happen with the current storyline, then suddenly I see Chris Benoit highlights and wonder what's going on...? Then I see McMahon talk about Benoit and then see a cut to a graphic that says Chris Benoit 1967-2007. I'm like HOLY SH*T, OMG!! WTF!?

    I tell you its a damn shame that wwe lost one of their best if not the best wrestlers in their company. Hopefully now WWE will learn something from this and decide to kill the current McMahon/Death storyline

    The McMahon Dead angle is probably over now. McMahon was the first one on camera at Raw. I don't think they can retcon themselves back to an angle that is no longer meaningless

    Atlanta news sources report that it was an apparent murder/suicide and suspect Chris killed his wife and son sometime over the weekend and then himself on Monday. I'm still holding out hope that the wife and son fell victim to carbon monoxide before Chris got there and he couldn't handle the grief but it is not looking good right now.

    The station said that investigators believe the 40-year-old Benoit killed his wife, Nancy, and 7-year-old son, Daniel, over the weekend, then himself on Monday. A neighbor called police, and the bodies were found in three rooms.

    Maybe it's best to wait for more finalized reports before everyone jumps to conclusions. This might not even be the whole story.
