I saw Vince’s interview with Meredith Viera at the gym this morning. She pretty much grilled him about the Chris Benoit tragedy. Vince did his part and (correctly) portrayed Benoit as a monster, but it doesn’t seem like the media is going to let this steroid angle go.
The seem pretty set on making this out to be “roid rage”. Over a three day period? I don’t think so.
Now to the bigger question…is steroid use rampant in professional wrestling? Uh, you think? Does that question really even need to be asked?
Seriously, if you know so little about steroids and the signs of steroid use that you need to ask that question about anyone on the WWE roster, you don’t have the adequate background knowledge to ask if this was an instance of roid rage.
And again, why is the mainstream media even covering this beyond the published facts of the case? Yes, it is a horrible tragedy, and I can see why the people who actually follow pro wrestling want to know more about it, but outside of that small market it is just more sensationalist journalism.
In other late breaking headlines…Did you hear that Paris was on Larry King? Did you hear the iPhone is coming out in a week?

Can this tragic story get any more bizarre?
Pardon the source…
“An anonymous user operating a computer traced to Stamford, Conn. â€” home to World Wrestling Entertainment â€” posted an entry to pro wrestler Chris Benoit’s Wikipedia.com biography announcing the death of his wife Nancy more than 14 hours before police in suburban Atlanta said they found her body along with her husband’s and their 7-year-old son, FOXNews.com has learned.”
In other news, today the Senate killed the immigration bill and the Supreme Court ruled against race as a determinate in public school assignment. Look for a bunch of rezoned folks to sue Knox County School Board by EOD on Friday.
Oh, and the Sprice Girls announced their reunion tour today as well…
