WWE to Canada: Take Off, Hosers

7/3/2007 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Chris Benoit double murder/suicide is still rocking the WWE, as they announced the cancellation of all Canadian events for the next month -- all because of the former "Canadian Crippler." While WWE sources claim that the "postponements" are to show sensitivity to the fans of Chris "Rabid Wolverine" Benoit, the WWE has a track record for bailing on the Great White North when troubles arise.
Chris Benoit and the Canadian flag
The death of Benoit's friend and teammate, Owen Hart, in 1999 kept the company away from parts of Canada for an entire year. After wrestler Bret Hart and WWE big cheese Vince McMahon's infamous "Montreal Screwjob" in 1997, they hid out until late '98. However, others say that the REAL reason for the cancellation is to avoid the ire and the loud, often profane chants of the live Canadian crowds. Chants of "You killed Owen!" and "You screwed Bret!" filled Canadian arenas for months after those scandals.

Perhaps the WWE isn't taking any chances on two live tapings of their RAW and SmackDown programs being filled with angry chants of "You killed Chris!"

#11 You are an idiot. Most crimes in the US go unreported since people know there's no point in reporting them....so your 'stats' are way off. As for drugs...the majority of it comes from your pathetic excuse of a country.

The days of the United States being a world leader are over. It's now just the annoying neighbour next door that you wish would just go away.....

Gee I dont see any foriegn countries wanting to kill anyone or anything in Canada! I guess the Canadians are little more RELAXED in Nature and dont boast about everything they purchase. Nothing like a fat overstuffed business Ny man busting out of his 3 piece suit becuase he is in such a hurry to gt somewhere becuase it has something to always do with MASS production that makes them happy.

#25 Ever hear of insulin, zippers, wireless radios, the telephone, snowmobiles, snowblowers, plexiglas, kerosene, marquis wheat, music synthesizers, the heart pacemaker, the JAVA language, the elctron microscope, the light bulb, and even basketball? All Canadian inventions....and let's not forget the polyethylene garbage bag. Open one up and jump in, I'll put you out to the curb you ignorant Yank.

The only thing we need protection from is you....the United States is the world's worst terrorism threat. We'll see how much you need us after you finish polluting your water supplies and you have buy your drinking water from the Great White North. :D lol

I bet half of americans never ever took an international flight out of thier state they reside in. Cant wait to pack my suitcase this winter full of baseball hats, calculators for kids, pantyhose etc. for all the cubans. What a beautiful vacation place to visit and to leave knowing you helped the poor.

al gores son, bill clinton, water gate, geee ...what a bunch of law breakers. The only thing i ever heard negative about a Canadian priminister is when Pierre Trudeaus wife slept with mick jagger in the 70's and that dosent really caount as maggie was not blood related to the prime minister and at least they didnt pull out the fake plastic look of bill and hillary and carried on knowing he banged someone else. Pierre and maggie did the normal thing when a spouse cheats: they divorced. Unlike The almighty dollar Hillary now trynig to Bank off her fame of her her husbands infidelity. Please tell me fake plastic hillary is really content and happy in her marriage today??? NOT! she is another obsessed american with the almighty dollar.

A Time magazine report highlights some disturbing facts. One million American students drop out of school every year—that's one every nine seconds!

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, students in the richest country on earth are in 24th place in math. That's behind Canada, Germany, France, Korea…but also smaller, poorer countries like Poland, Hungary and Slovakia.
Americans who graduate in 2006 are from a school system that was designed for 1956.

Ya Think?    

Face it, if Canada was such a great place, why are all it's snobby, pushy, obnoxious citizens flocking to the U.S. to do their shopping? Oh. That's right. It's because the prices of consumer goods in Canada are 50% to 200% higher over there so they can pay for all that "free" medical coverage.

============================================================

LMAO! 50-200% higher here? You are delusional, as well as ignorant.

FYI, I don't shop in the U.S. and don't intend to either. Frankly, I'd rather my tax dollars be spent on healthcare in Canada than be sent to Washington to fund your illegal war that has already killed 3,586 American soldiers and over 665,000 Iraqis. That blood is on your hands you dumbass yank.
