The Wrestleline Report-Saturday

Caller Jim Kirchner asked why it is so many people are coming forward to comment on the Benoit tragedy, but nobody said or tried to do anything before?

It could be, too, that a lot of people didn't want to overstep their bounds and say something that they thought could've been out of line, or thought wasn't in their place to say, and now are wishing they had.

The funeral for Nancy and Daniel Benoit will be held today at 1pm in Daytona Beach, Fl. at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. I sincerely hope she and little Daniel can rest in peace.
