Benoit's Father Take Shots At The McMahons.

The following is an excerpt from an article in the Hartford Courant by Michael Benoit, father to the late Chris Benoit:

Watching from afar, I've observed with interest the U.S. Senate campaign in Connecticut because of my experiences with Linda McMahon and her business, World Wrestling Entertainment. While she spends millions of dollars earned through her professional wrestling empire to flood Connecticut's airwaves and mailboxes promoting her Republican candidacy, state voters should know there is another side to McMahon and the WWE.

My son, Chris Benoit, 40, was one of WWE's top superstars. In June 2007, our lives changed dramatically, when he tragically killed his wife, son and himself. The press jumped on steroids as the cause of his actions. But tests showed that brain damage in the form of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, or CTE, not steroids, was responsible for our loss. CTE, caused by repetitive trauma to the brain, can bring on serious disorders such as a loss of emotional control, addictions to drugs and alcohol, depression, aggressive and violent behavior.

Most people view wrestling as fake and the McMahon family pushed that theory to avoid regulation. But in its lust for higher ratings and dollars, WWE began demanding that performers use more weapons and dangerous stunts in wrestling matches. Although matches are rigged and scripted, the harsh physical abuse in the form of blunt force steel chair shots to the head and power bombs through tables onto cement floors are real. I believe that this change in the industry is responsible for the majority of deaths it experienced in the last 20 years.

Another WWE wrestler, Andrew Martin, was 33 when he died. What did Andrew Martin have in common with my son? He was one of many of McMahon's former wrestlers who died prematurely, and he was the second wrestler to have his brain examined for signs of CTE after death. Martin had the same shocking brain damage as my son. The human skull is not designed to withstand and protect the brain from the abuse the McMahon's insisted their wrestlers endure. Yet, since the late '80s, these are the matches into which the McMahon's have pushed their talent.

USA Today in 2004 published research stating that wrestlers are 20 times more likely to die before the age of 45 than are pro football players. What has the McMahon family done to make pro wrestling safer? They will spend up to $50 million to get Linda elected to a position where she could head off any effort to regulate their business.

The WWE and Linda McMahon evade any responsibility for the early deaths that their industry suffers at an astronomical rate. After the Martin tests were completed, I sought to educate the McMahons about the scientific findings on brain trauma and how their wrestling stunts could cause this serious and fatal health issue. They were having none of it. It was clear, the McMahons were more interested in making hundreds of millions of dollars at the expense of these wrestlers, whom they regard as little more than circus animals to be ridden until their value expires.

TNA Vs. RAW

Well, I am glad they are looking to do a brand new show (presumably live) to go up against Raw from 8-10. I really think this is the far better time slot, because they clearly get an hour head start before Raw. Absolutely brilliant.

That way, they can carry the viewers from 8:00-10 PM, and have the advantage in their court, since obviously WWE is not on from 8-9.

There are a lot of grudges going on here that is fueling this fire. Hogan is mad at Vince, and vice versa. And I am sure that Spike TV still has some bad feelings left from when WWE left their network, and this is the perfect opportunity with the right fire power to get back at them.

But the 8-10PM Monday time slot is definitely a big win for TNA to get a full hour head start. Also, we can expect the first head to head show that at 8:55 PM, out will come Hulk Hogan.

As far as fans stating that going up against WWE is "ratings suicide", give me a break. There are so many disgruntled fans these days that simply watch WWE out of habit, it isn't even funny. I think these fans are just begging for there to be some competition out there to watch.
