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!"

It's funny that the America is suppose to be the richest country in the world and yet many millions of its citizens live way below the poverty line. Your government which I know you all hate should be spending the money on more important things like health care and education etc. Face it, you're not the best country in the world. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate America....in fact I love them. It's just that some of you are so arrogant and you act like you're above everyone. I'm only pointing out the facts.

Ya Think?    

Yeah Canuck -- if the prices are so great and the Canadian dollar is so strong, why are all your ignorant, pushy fellow citizens staying at the Ho-Jo's and stuffing the trunks of their cars with goods they're buying this moment at the Outlet Mall right down the street from where I live? I'm just across the border on the American side, and every freaking weekend the malls, supermarkets and hotels are packed with Canadians who come here in their Winnebagos, park in the shopping plaza parking lots for the weekend (illegally, but it's free...) and lie to the Customs inspectors about how much they spent. It's gone on for years and if you claim you don't know anything about it, you're ignorant. They come here to shop because they can get J Crew, Gap, Abercrombie, Timberland, etc. for 1/3 of what they'll pay right over the border in Canada. The only thing you snobs are famous for is Paul Bernardo. http://www.crimelibrary.com/serial_killers/notorious/bernardo/index_1.html

Unless you're into fat and out of shape people. The rest of the world prefer people who are healthy and fit.

The only way you would have any clue what to do with my wife, is if she was a guy. Not to mention, she has way to much class to even conceive of being with trailer trash like you, cause, ya see, she prefers men, not little boys. Nice try though, loser. Oh, and that was the best line you could come up with. Tsk tsk, there's your intelligence showing again. So sad

Wow, I checked in again today and the Canada/US bashing is still going strong. Well, here's my take on it. America is a great country. Canada is a great county. Simple, Huh?

But I do have a clearer picture of CostMesaboy. He's in a dark room, lit only by his computer screen. The room is filled with empty pizza boxes, crushed soda cans (he's too young to drink and mam won't buy him any.) and the room stinks of dirty sweat sox and . . . what is that sweet smoky smell.

Good night and good fortunes to Americans and Canadians alike--and I'll toss in the Brits, too. :-)

i don't know if my comment was deleted by TMZ or what but I'll post it again...#156 you disgust me YA THINK!?! Talking about Paul Bernardo is horrible especially when you know people who have been hurt by his actions as I do...you're ruthless for posting that and don't even get me started on all the people from the states who have commited just as henious crimes...

and yes we shop in your country but shut up because all it does is boost your economy!! and you forgot to mention how many pushy ignorant AMERICANS there are flocking over the border to a) buy our beer or b) drink while they're underage in their own country...neither of which bother me but don't throw stones when you live in a glass house yourself you stupid prick

Ya Think?    

Sandfa -- stop your whining. You're breaking my (f)heart. You don't like the mention of Paul Bernardo? Too damned bad. You Canadians want to act all high and mighty and better than everyone, and yet you breed pigslop like Bernardo and his whore Karla Homolka. You're the idiots who released Homolka after a few years in jail and turned her into a folk hero for the brainwashed. Here's a chick who drugged her own sister on Christmas Eve so her boyfriend could rape her. Canadian family values at their finest. Then she assisted in the kidnapping, confinement, repeated rape, torture, murder, dismemberment and concealment of the bodies of Leslie Mahaffey and Kristen French. And for all that, she got what? 8 years and now she's living in Quebec as free as a bird. Great justice system.

Here's a thought, dumbass. Why doesn't the Canadian government raise the drinking age to 21? Then you wouldn't have all the teenyboppers up there buying booze. There's a reason the drinking age is 21 in the States. It's to keep underage, immature kids from drinking. Too bad the Can-EH-dians haven't caught up with the times yet.

Standards are badly needed.    

To Ya Think? and canuck - you both sound like a cute old couple fighting. Your minds are way off the ball here. Costamesa is no doubt delighted at the bait and switch he pulled on you two. I took the bait myself. Benoit is the topic. Scroll up and look. Flag waving will only serve to make your arms tired. Speaking of which, sayonara. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ......

Sandfa    

are you stupid?? do you honestly think that it if it was up to ME or any other canadian citizen she would be out on the streets as she is right now?? have you heard of a plea bargain?? she's out because she gave up evidence to keep him in jail for the rest of his life and if it were up to ME (WHICH ITS NOT) she wouldn't have had that option...i know the canadian justice system is flawed...i know it's brutal that she's out...i'm a believer in capital punishment..if it were up to me both of them would be frying for what they did but it's not up to me...why don't you talk about the young offenders act which is also a joke...i'm not arguing with you about the canadian justice system and it's stupidity!!! I'm arguing because you're an insensitive prick to keep talking about him and her...

Canuck    

Sandfa,

Actually I'm one Canadian of many who doesn't think the state should murder anyone. Bernardo is right where he belongs, in a 10x6 cell for the rest of his life and that has to be the worst punishment possible for him.

The U.S. is the only industrialized country that murders its own citizens and that's sickening.

Sandfa    

i understand/respect that canuck...to each his own...to be honest bernardo/holmolka are two of the few i believe should endure capital punishment, them along with child rapists/murderers...just bernardo has/never will feel any remorse for what he did and that angers me beyond belief too...
