I'm surprised with all of these Benoit threads that no one has mentioned Kevin Sullivan's name.
When I heard that Benoit had died the first thing that came to my mind was a Steroid induced heart attack like Eddie Guerrero.
But when I heard that his wife and Kid were dead also the second thing that came to mind was Kevin Sullivan.
Now for those of you not familar with wrestling let me fill you in. Kevin Sullivan was a big name wrestler in the South in the 80's and early 90's and worked as a "Booker" that is the guy who sets up matches and determines the outcome.
Sullivan booked a feud in which Benoit was having an affair with Sullivan's (real life) wife Nancy (also known as Woman). Benoit and Nancy were forced to spend time together to make the affair look real, (hold hands in public, share hotel rooms, etc.). Because of this, Sullivan and Benoit had a contentious backstage relationship at best and Benoit defeated Sullivan in a Retirement match. Benoit does, however, admit having a certain amount of respect for Sullivan, saying on the DVD Hard Knocks: The Chris Benoit Story that Sullivan never took undue liberties in the ring during their feud, even though he blamed Benoit for breaking up his marriage.
That was 11 years ago, but shit maybe Sullivan is one patient MFer.
I mean Sullivan hated Benoits guts and the fact that both Benoit, Nancy and their son were murdered sounds like the murderer had personal reasons for this.
As a intresting side note, Sullivan is a self proclaimed Satanist.
Just something to think about.
