Perhaps this strange thing called karma finally caught up to the WWE.
In the midst of a kayfabe storyline about Vince McMahon's death, the WWE was struck by the real tragedy of the death of Chris Benoit and his family this weekend. Still reeling from the recent death of the popular Eddie Guerrero and haunted by its much-scrutinized "the show must go on" treatment of Owen Hart's death, the WWE was quick to trot out the full scale tribute for Benoit on Raw. The circumstances, this time, however were different. Investigators believe that Benoit murdered his wife on Saturday, murdered his son on Sunday, and killed himself on Monday. Considering the possibility that Benoit is a double-murderer, WWE's tribute seems in poor taste - especially to those closest to the victims of the tragedy.
I, of course, will yield the floor to DudeSpin contributors who are far more well-versed than I on professional wrestling. Nevertheless, I find it difficult to condone McMahon's actions here.
