Pro wrestling journalist believes Chris Benoit’s murder-suicide was a professional hit

010213_chris-benoit_600Back in 2007, the pro wrestling world took a major hit when Chris Benoit and his family were killed in what police called a murder-suicide. Since that day, World Wrestling Entertainment doesn’t acknowledge anything about Benoit and his name only gets brought up by fans and other wrestlers. Pro wrestling journalist Bill Apter has been in this industry for a long time and the whole Benoit case doesn’t sit right with him. Apter was on Chris Jericho’s podcast and says he believes Benoit’s murder-suicide case was a professional hit.

“I think somehow Chris got in some sort of trouble. I don’t know what it was, I don’t know what it was after or whatever, but I think something happened. I think when he got home, Nancy and his son were already dead … to me, if a hit, a murder, is done in a professional way, they can make it look like you did it and you committed suicide as well.”

“I understand that husbands and wives kill each other sometimes. They do! But not the boy. This is what didn’t make sense to me. Because I knew they had a volatile relationship, [Chris] and Nancy, there were a lot of issues and all that, but because of Daniel, the boy, and how enamored he was with Daniel, I still, today, can’t fathom that he could do this.”

There have been a lot of questions being asked about this situation that we still don’t have answers too. Even Jericho called the whole situation “shady” but at this point, no one really knows what happened on that terrible day.

    This is laughable! First you mention “Pro wrestling journalist Bill Apter” — There are no journalist in Wrestling. The author says “to me, if a hit, a murder, is done in a professional way, they can make it look like you did it and you committed suicide as well”—Is the author Bill Aptor a hitman as well as a wrestling “journalist”?? This is totally ridiculous, which is why you will NEVER see this on a REAL News Outlet. Please—-get real!
