Tragedy struck the world of wrestling last night when Chris Benoit and his family were found dead in their Atlanta home early this afternoon.

Benoit was a WWE veteran, arguably the best pure wrestler in the company’s history.

No further details regarding the tragedy have been released. But Benoit was scheduled to appear at the WWE Vengeance pay-per-view event last night, until it was announced that a “family emergency” would prevent him from being there.

In an ironic twist, tonight’s Monday Night RAW was meant to be a special, three-hour investigation into the “death” of Vince McMahon. It was a story line already considered to be in very poor taste even before these sad events occurred.

Instead, the show will now a tribute episode to Chris Benoit.
