Newbie (1/14)

  1. Read the latest, it's very apparent that Benoit did it. It may be a tough pill to swallow, but that's the way it goes. Signs indicate that they weren't strangled with his hands, but a chokehold was applied to his son. Who knows how to chokehold better than Benoit? The only thing that I can say is at least if Benoit did apply a chokehold, his son would have been unconscious before he knew what was happening. He knew what he was doing, and he went about it methodically. Even though it was an evil act, I think he still tried to be respectful about it by not allowing them to suffer. At least I hope that's how he thought, although it makes little difference. Also, he was found strangled by his weight machine. He wrapped a towel around his neck, likely so his throat wouldn't be cut by the cord, attached all the weight to the cord and let it drop, hanging himself. I don't think any ninjas had it in for him, and I can't see very many people outpowering him without leaving signs of a struggle. It was Benoit. Check the latest news, and you'll see what I'm saying. Wrestlezone.com, as well as most other wrestling websites, have less speculative information than most reliable news sources. You may want to check http://www.wrestlingobserver.com/wo/ Dave Meltzer is one of the more reliable sources of wrestling news, and he knows many of the wrestlers personally (and has for a long time). He also won't speculate like the news outlets will.
  2. I feel the same way, actually. No one can say for sure why this happened, but I'll be honest; I spent a good portion of lastnight awake in disbelief, and I cried over the loss of one of my heroes. I usually don't mention this part of my past, but I used to actually aspire to be a professional wrestler when I was growing up. One of the high points of my life was when I got an acceptance letter saying that I could attend the Harts "School of Hart Knocks" at the time. I had the money, and I was in a lot better physical shape than I am now; my dream was to be trained in "the dungeon" (even though at the time the dungeon was no longer in use). I gave up that dream for a family, and used the money I had to get married, and make an attempt at family life instead. More recently, I've been considering getting into shape again and attending a new wrestling school that is being operated by Lance Storm in Calgary. My wife wants me to go for it, and we talk a lot about what it would be like if I ever made it. Those talks would always end up in the direction of "who would my dream opponent be?". Well I always told her that given the state of wrestling right now, my dream opponent would be Chris Benoit. I imagined how amazing it would be to wrestle someone as intense as he was. I would get chills watching his matches, understanding the psychology behind everything he did, and being genuinely impressed every time he came down to the ring. The loss of that dream, and more importantly, the disappointment that I feel right now about his actions leaves me feeling genuinely heartbroken. I feel disillusioned, and disgusted, yet at the same time I will always love Benoit in my own way. He was my hometown hero and I looked forward to watching him every week, even if I had to download RAW just to watch. I don't know how to end this post, other than to say that this is one of the most confusing moments of my life. I just can't wrap my head around this. Edit: The backpedaling was necessary, and people should understand it. WWE hadn't learned of the mode of death at the time; only that Benoit and his family were found dead. The initial reaction among people internally was that it was an accident, possibly Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Only when pieces of the puzzle came together did it become more sinister; and that was hours after RAW went off the air. The only indication that anyone had that something was "wrong" with Benoit, was a text message that (they believe) Chavo Guerrero recieved, stating "The back door is open, the dogs are fed". People really should give WWE a break right now, as they are doing exactly the right thing at the moment (which isn't something their known for).
  3. WWE is insisting that it is not roid rage. They make a good point. Aside from the strict testing (which Benoit passed just this April), he left bibles at their feet. He tied his wife up and asphyxiated her with an electrical cord, she showed no sign of resisting. His son was asphyxiated by a plastic bag. The acts were very deliberate, and neither showed signs of being beaten, although there was some blood near his wife. Get this, though. His son had needlemarks on his arm. Apparently Benoit and Nancy were giving their son growth hormone treatments, as they thought that he was abnormally small. That may account for the steroids they found in the house. This is somewhat speculative, though, we won't know for sure until toxicology reports come back. Also, in most cases of murder suicide such as this, it's caused by a long depression in which the father feels that his family would be better off "in heaven" than living in this world. It sounds fitting, since he did leave bibles at their feet. It's sounding very premeditated. Lastly, Bret Hart indicated that Benoit may not have been happy with his current role in WWE TV, which might have meant his being drafted to ECW. He wouldn't say much more than that, but it sounded like there were problems of that nature. Once again, that's speculative and until reports come out confirming the validity, it should be taken as speculation.
  4. Since this would be about the fourth time I type something like this out, I simply can't bring myself to do it again, so here's a copypasta from a different thread: Also, the earliest autopsy results should be in at about 10:00 am. Hopefully we'll know more then, but in any case I hope that clears up the "whodunnit" for now. Benoit is a murderer. That's a hard pill to swallow.
  5. You're like a one trick pony with a broken leg; you need to be shot.
  6. I've been married for 6 years now, and I have a 4 year old son. Thank god I don't have a minivan or I'd throw up at how normal that sounds.
  7. huh.. Well times sure are changing aren't they? I guess a rolling stone gathers no moss, so it's probably a good thing not to get "stuck" here, so to speak. Good luck!
  8. Not being a fanboy will definately be an asset around here at times, welcome to OCR, and may your stay be enjoyable.
  9. Going with the tetris theme, I remember trying to beat Bowser in Tetris Attack was quite the feat, when I first played through the game. Man that shit was kinda tough, what with the blocks rising so fast and having to do combos to hurt him. A nightmare when you aren't pro. I can do it a little easier now, but it still takes me a few tries.
  10. I swear to god I don't know her. Welcome "Tigerphoenix21" if that is your real name..
  11. Who else are mods (You, GrayLightning, djp, Xelebes, Joe Redifer(?); Are there more)? I can't tell anymore 'cause nobody has those "Moderator" name tags below the post-count rank anymore. http://www.ocremix.org/phpBB2/groupcp.php?g=4 That should help you. DJP is actually the forum admin, he has even more powers. Hey Smoke, since I know it's going to be asked anyway. Fill us in on how you went about becoming a moderator? Is it possible for anyone else to become a moderator the way you did? (I have the feeling this question is what SILVERWOLF was getting at, so I thought I'd not beat around the bush and just flat out ask) (Oh, and I'm guessing that there isn't really a need for more moderators anyway, but please fill us in despite that fact)
  12. Hint for all you newbs.. Read through as many of OmegaX800's posts as you can. It's a perfect guide for how not to act on OCR. If you can't read through them all due to the sheer stupidity of them, don't fret, you'll do just fine here Oh and welcome all newcomers.
  13. Cloud at level 99 with Omnislash and knights of the round, and equipped with final summon-phoenix could take care of that star ocean boss on his own. Ruby weapon pwns that thing.
  14. T-Rex boss from Parasite Eve. Oh, Bump.
  15. Hello Everyone, I thought since this is my first time in the forums I'd just say hi to you all. I'm a 21 year old that's actually been coming to this site for a few years now, and I've been a huge fan since I first laid ears on the place. I've made myself a nice collection of CD's from some of the remixes here. Have to say some of my favorite Remixes come from Final Fantasy 6 though, but thats been my all time favorite final fantasy simply because its that game who's music first inspired me to learn to play piano. since then I've learned to play guitar too, shadows theme was my first guitar song Well I should tell you a little more about me.. Ive been married since I was 19 to a beautiful wife I met over the internet. Im originally from Alberta Canada but moved to New Hampshire USA so my wife could be with her family. I have a 14 month old son who actually is a young fan of many of the songs on this site. I'm a pretty nice guy so don't be afraid to make friends with me, I dont bite.
