Arn Anderson Comments On Still Not Processing The Tragedy Of What Happened To Chris Benoit
On a recent episode of 'ARN' with Co-hosts Conrad Thompson and Arn Anderson, Anderson commented on the Chris Benoit Tragedy which occurred in 2007 and how to this day, he still hasn't processed what happened to Benoit.
“I’m gonna disappoint you on this and I apologize, but the whole Chris thing I’ve yet to wrap my head around. The guy I knew wasn’t capable of doing this. A lot of the unknowns we’ll never know. I know the tragedy of the result which is unforgivable. But to be honest with you, I’ve not had any resolution about it in my mind and I can’t wrap my head around it.”
Anderson commented on how the tragedy put the issue of head injuries in the forefront, rather than what was the scariest part of the tragedy.
“It certainly helped put a spotlight on it. It sure did. I will say this about Chris – ask any wrestler who spent any time in the locker room with him, any time on the road with him, any time in the ring with him – nobody saw this coming. That’s what makes it so scary. There were no warning signs that any of us saw. The last time I saw him, he was as kind and professional as he was the first time I saw him. So, to say there were warning signs that were ignored – I’m talking about our world, not when he went home or anything like that in the confines of his home or family life we don’t know about. But the times I saw him, there were no indicators, which makes it so scary.”
