Wait never mind, found it for you http://www.dailymotion.com/relevance...bk-vs-triple-h
We are still awaiting further details, but PWInsider.com is extremely saddened to report that former WWE and WCW World champion Chris Benoit and his wife, former WCW and ECW personality Nancy "Woman" Benoit were both found dead today in Atlanta, Georgia. Obviously this will be a huge developing story in the days to come but at this point, we'd like to express our deepest condolences to the Benoits' family, friends, and fans at this time.
A meeting is currently ongoing at WWE TV and it is expected that tonight's three hour Raw will now be dedicated to Benoit's memory.
Man, I'm saddened to hear this. Benoit was one of the greatest and now this had to happened. It even makes it more sadder that his family is also dead. Rest in Peace- Chris Benoit, one of the greatest wrestlers to live!

when i saw the news, my mind just went blank. i havent felt this since eddie guerrero. but chris was murdered along with his family. fck the asshole who killed him. rot in hell mother$$%#$%. benoit is one of the greatest
Are you serious? I did not know that until today. I give my dears condolences to his children and family. This is worst than Eddie Guerrero's death, because now we are sure that this is a murder of not only Chris Benoit but his wife also.
Were there any news on how he was actually killed?
I was really shocked to see that. I haven't watched wrestling in a couple of years but Benoit was always one of my favorites - the man never failed to put on an amazing show.
My favorite matches of his were probably the series he had with Kurt Angle on Smackdown, back in the early days of the brand extension.
Now they're considering that it might've been a double murder-suicide, and that Benoit killed his wife, child, and himself. I don't want to believe that, and I pray it's not the truth.
he's one of my faves too. benoit's rivalry with triple H and evolution was the best. maaaan i dont know what to say... police are saying it's most likely he killed his family then committed suicide, but that's just... un-benoit. he's a great great man, this would be the last thing i imagine him doing
I heard a long time ago that he used to receive threats, but that was a long time ago, I'm just puzzled by this. People sometimes snap, I just hope that didn't occur.......
I had no clue there was a wrestling thread here! Surprise surprise!
The Benoit case is a real tragedy. The mentioning that they found bibles near the bodies of the victims [wife and son] is just bizarre. Then he went and hung himself with those wires from his training machines he has in his house. How messed up is that ? And there was no suicide letter left behind making this a huge mystery. Really sad because I loved him as an entertainer/wrestler, arguably one of the best ever, and he never seemed like an unbalanced man that would do this kind of thing.
Anyway, I'm a huge wrestling fan. Most of the times I watch Raw, sometimes ECW online. We don't get, well I don't get Smackdown here. I would like to add that the best heel in the business right now is Edge. No questions asked [in my opinion]. My favorite wrestler ever... very hard to pick, but I would go with Bret Hart. Shawn Michaels is very high up on the list, so is Chris Benoit regardless of what happened in real life. Austin and the Rock are also honorable mentions. I could go on forever, but for now I should shut up.
It was sad for me to hear these news as well. However, one thing that bothers me is that why did WWE Raw made a 3 hour show in his honor? I mean, I liked the guy as a wrestler but for a husband to take a wire and struggle his wife to death; and a father to strangle his seven year old son to death is a big crime to me, what's really there to honor? Whatever the reason, there was no use to get this far by killing your own family. And he had a bible next to the bodies? If he really read the bible he would know that there is something that says : "Thou shall not kill" ans especially yourself.
I will remember his great matches but his last act was just cruel.
i keep thinking about stuff when i heard about the bible, like a cult or a staged murder, i dont know, it just really sucks... WWE has said not to mention the name benoit, i heard from my friend, i dunno, maybe the organization felt pissed. the killing was deliberate, not out of rage. i dont want to accept benoit did it, but that's what it clearly shows. nevertheless, WWE is right to pay tribute, tho it maybe wrong to say this, the last act still can't erase all the great things benoit did over the years
WWE had to distance themselves from Benoit because of the complaints they had received about the whole thing. As in glorifying a murderer and such. People are very sensitive in this day and age. Personally I don't want to justify his actions, but like you guys in here I can't and won't erase his wrestling career.
Well, I am not much of a Pro Wrestling fan anymore, but I remember Benoit and was surprised to hear about this. All the evidence seems to point to murder-suicide and that's just sad. It's too bad we'll probably never be able to be 100% sure about why this happened.
To update apparently 14 hours before the bodies were found, someone posted on wikipedia about the death of his wife. Strange....
It has been said that the person who posted that has come out and said it was just speculation. Supposedly they [investigators] have taken his computers, but not much more to it. And Benoit's personal physician/doctor's office has been raided twice by the DEA [Drug Enforcement Administration]. He could be in some trouble.
Or better yet, piece of the article from a wrestling news site:
