WWE Responds to Chris Benoit Storey

Any wrestling fans likely know that two separate medical institutions (one of them being WVU), examined parts of Benoit's brain to see if there were any anomalies. What they found is that he had the brain of an 85 year old Alzheimer's patient. They also concluded that this could have contributed to the unspeakable acts he committed back in June.

Naturally, the WWE has made gallant strides to suppress these findings in favor of their own biased opinions. Instead of accepting the SCIENTIFIC results, they opted to say they were merely "speculative". Here is the statement:

"Today's attempt to explain that Chris Benoit's murder of his family was possibly caused by some form of dementia as a result of alleged concussions is speculative. WWE can certainly understand the anguish of a father having to deal with the fact that his son allegedly murdered his wife and young son, as Chris Benoit is alleged to have done. We respect the desire of that father to do whatever he can to find some explanation as to why his son might commit such horrible acts."

Unfortunately, WWE needs to understand that a legal investigation into a murder is one thing, a scientific analysis of the biology of the alleged murderer is something completely different. No one seems to be disputing the facts; Benoit murdered his wife and son, then killed himself. What we want to know is why; it wasn't roid rage apparently, so we move to something else. It seems as if the numerous concussions and blows to the head took their toll and could be a viable answer to the "why" part, not the "what" part. And what part of a concussion is "alleged"? Is the WWE seriously trying to imply that Benoit didn't suffer these concussions? I saw Benoit knocked out on live TV, I saw him doing flying headbutts, break his neck, get tossed around, etc, and you expect me to believe he never once suffered a concussion?

Give it up Vince, the medical guys are finding some biological causes. Maybe you should focus on the dope heads in the WWE who aren't dead yet. Of course that number is getting smaller and smaller, but hey, you can always find another 6'5" 265lb no-personality, no-skills replacement, right? Probably for a lot less money.
