No, he didn't make it to the PPV. He didn't make it to a house show on Saturday either. He was last seen on Friday.

What's a house show? Is it a wrestling thing or like a home show?

On a tv news report I saw they claimed his son had needle marks on his arms and that they have reason to believe he was being given growth hormones.

A house show is a non televised wrestling event.

Allegedly they were giving Daniel HGH shots because they flet he was small for his age.

the entire steroid angle of this story is a ginormous jump to conclusions...

first off, this was not a roid rage... this was done over a matter of days... it was deliberate. it was not a moment of rage.

and as for the kid taking HGH... it is something that can be prescribed by a doctor.

is it possible that, despite the fact that he's passed every steroid test he's been given, that benoit was, in fact, using steroids and the after effects, mood swings, rage, etc. etc. all snowballed into this tragic tragic event? sure, of course there is... but for pete's sake, can we at least wait for a toxicology report before we jump to that conclusion and all that comes with it?

Who adminstered the steroid tests that he passed - the WWE or some official governing body? Maybe it wasn't a "moment" of rage, but side effects do include aggression and depression (according to a couple of medical websites). Steroids were found in the house supposedly.

Maybe some pro bodybuilders test negative too, but I still think all those guys take steroids - IMO.

Hey, that's why I said "speculated" in my post.

Wow, at least McMahon dropped the death gimmick. First time the dude has shown class in years. This really disgusts me, though. If the murder thing is true, just, damn.

An acquaintance of mine who is into professional wrestling talked online about the number of wrestlers who have died in recent years, and how there was no health care provided by the wrestling company (she referenced that the WWE wrestlers are considered "independent contractors"). Interesting to ponder when just today NFL people were up on Capitol Hill talking about the failure of properly caring for retired players.

That's neither here nor there in Benoit's case ... unless she's right in thinking maybe the autopsy of Benoit reveals massive head trauma from being repeatedly bashed in the head with a chair. It seems funny to type that, but what kind of precedence is there for people who repeatedly have their heads bashed with chairs or other big men? What does that do to a human brain after a while?

Anyway, I'm just parroting her thoughts, in the spirit of moving away from steroid assumptions.

Regardless of what caused Benoit to do this, I believe that wrestling is at a crossroads. Looking into how many wrestlers that have dropped dead soon after retiring or have killed themselves reveals some scary numbers. Crash Holly and the Big Boss Man immediately come to mind. Something is clearly wrong with the sport. The older generation of wrestlers haven't seem to have had the rash of deaths that the 80s onward wrestlers have had. Could it steriod induced? Sure. Could it be a result of the more aggressive style (chair shots, etc)? Sure. I'm really curious to see what McMahon and co do as a result of this.

I don't know much about wrestling, but I'm curious about this story, so I've been following it a bit yesterday and today. I read elsewhere about the difficult schedule these pro wrestlers keep, often performing while injured just to bring the money in. I'm sure that doesn't help the rash of deaths.
