WWE -- No Killer Zone

6/26/2007 11:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After authorities revealed the grisly details of Chris Benoit's final days, the WWE is changing their tune. In a televised statement, aired just moments ago on Sci Fi Channel's ECW, Vince McMahon made it clear -- they will no longer honor the memory of the murdering wrestler:

"Last night on 'Monday Night Raw,' the WWE presented a special tribute show, recognizing the career of Chris Benoit. However, now some 26 hours later, the facts of this horrific tragedy are now apparent. Therefore, other than my comments, there will be no mention of Mr. Benoit tonight. On the contrary, tonight's show will be dedicated to everyone who has been affected by this terrible incident. This evening marks the first step of the healing process. Tonight, the WWE performers will do what they do better than anyone else in the world -- entertain you."

Finally. Someone that decides not to make a hero out of a murderer or felon. So horribly sad. Especially for the child.

Nice try Vince. I bet the same guy who prescribed the roids to Benoit is the guy who prescribes them to you. You're a roid user too right Vince?

Go a step further Vince and do the right thing. State that if the murders are connected to anabolic steroid abuse you will do what ever it takes from preventing steroid abuse again in the WWE.

It is sad situation. This is very depressing. Chris Benoit was an outstanding wrestler. His private life is know business of anyones. He gave his all for over 22 years. Now he is remembered as a murderer. This is not right. Look at all the crap Vince McMahon has done in the past. He is now trying to distance himself only because he doesn't want anyone to dig into what he really does behind the sences to these guys. Chris Benoit needs to be remembered for his life he is also a victim. A victim of pain and hurt, we don't know what was going on in this mans head and no one can judge him. Only GOD can judge you and know he is having to expect his punishment. What he did is wrong and we all want answers. I can not believe he would do this just to do it. I'm not saying this an excuse but know one knows what that man went through. Think about your own lives how many of you have done things that you are ashamed of. His life needs to be celebrated along with his wife and son. they where all victims of the pain of making the world happy every week. May each of you Nancy , little Daniel and Chris Rest In Peace.

There might not be a more vile, phoney, soulless person on the planet than Vince McMahon.

It's tragic that Chris killed his family, it should have been Vince that he offed.
