Rest In Peace, Chris Benoit (merged)

He was scheduled to compete this weekend at WWE's Vengeance PPV, but left before the show due to a "family emergency". This is huge breaking news for anyone who has followed wrestling at any point since the 90's. Chris was left dismaid after the passing of his best friend, Eddie Guerrerro. I meet this news with utter shock, sorrow and hurt, as I've personally been a fan of Chris' for a long time. He was an extremely caring individual and one who has sacrificed his entire life to professional wrestling.
He was one of the good guys in the world of sports entertainment. To say that he'll be missed is sore, sore understatement.
