Family Of Wrestler Chris Benoit's Deceased Wife Wins In Court

| Filed under: Legal MattersChris BenoitSad Sad


Here's some bittersweet news for the family of former wrestler Chris Benoit's wife, Nancy.

If you recall, douchebag Chris was responsible two years ago for killing his wife, son, and then hanging himself.

Then, last year, Nancy's family filed a lawsuit against the Larry Flynt Publishing Group after the sleazy Hustler mag published nude photos of Nancy taken over 20 years ago.

Nancy, who was a former model and professional wrestler, had asked the photographer to destroy the shots immediately after they were taken.

But Hustler argued in court that the pictures were "part of a greater story on the life and tragic death" of Nancy and they helped tell the story of the beginnings of her career.

Then, last October, a federal judge ruled the mag had the right to publish the pics because her death was a "legitimate matter of public interest and concern."

However, yesterday a federal appeals court ruled that Hustler didn't have the rights to publish the photos. They claim a notorious death doesn't grant publishers the rights to publish any images they'd like.

Hopefully this all gets resolved soon and her family can put it behind them.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents revealed shocking new details about Chris Benoit's steroid consumption on Tuesday.

The former WWE wrestler, who murdered his wife and son before committing suicide, was way overprescribed by his dubious doctor, Phillippe Astin, who is currently being investigated by authorities.

Pharmacy records show that, from May 2006 to May 2007, Astin has prescribed Benoit, on average, "a 10-month supply of anabolic steroids every three to four weeks."

That is so messed up.

On so many levels!

Chris Benoit's father has broken his silence for the first time since his son murdered his family and committed suicide.

"We have no understanding of why it happened," Michael Benoit said on Friday from his home in Canada.

Speaking to the Associated Press, he added, "We need some time to gather our thoughts and wait and see. There's still more information that's going to come out from toxicology tests that will give us some understanding of why this happened."

Michael said the test results, which could take several weeks to be completed, "could give us closure."

The Monster Smiles

| Filed under: Chris Benoit


His final picture!

In the words of Vince MaMahon, Chris Benoit is a monster.

This photograph of the wrestler who murdered his wife and son before committing suicide was taken at the office of his shady doctor last Friday, hours before he began his homicidal streak.

Though he may be smiling, his eyes reveal a different story!

The picture was snapped by a wrestling fan at Dr. Phil Astin's office in Carrollton, Georgia.

The fan who took the picture described Benoit as soft-spoken and "nice." He signed an autograph for the woman.

Even monsters can be "nice."
