It started with the WWF’s (now WWE) boom period in the mid-1980’s with stars like Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Randy Savage, and many others. It represented the colourful culture of the 1980’s and later the edgy period of the late 1990’s with stars like Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker, Triple H, and many others. Chris Benoit wanted to be just like them. He wanted to be one of the big stars and his dream came true. Chris was on top in the world of wrestling. He was winning titles with his best friends and wife by his side. On June 22, 2007 it all came to an end when the Benoit family was found dead leaving all his fans devastated and more than a few questions.
