"Asking Scott Keith about professional wrestling is like asking Wayne Gretzky about hockey." --Murtz Jaffer, Inside Pulse
The True Story Behind Wrestling's Deadly Secret
On June 25, 2007, Canadian pro wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy,
and their seven-year-old son Daniel were found dead in their
Fayetteville, Georgia, home. The ruling of murder-suicide caused a media
frenzy and stunned wrestling fans around the world.
Benoit tragedy was only the latest in a string of disasters that have
dogged Stampede Wrestling, operated by the Calgary-based Hart family. In
the first book of its kind, Scott Keith offers an in-depth look at the
Hart family "curse" that has left all the Stampede Wrestling alumnae
either crippled or dead. Were these deaths preventable or inevitable?
How did a sport famous for showmanship and entertainment become overrun
by rampant drug use, depravity, and greed?
Chris Benoit isn't
the only wrestler to be brought down by a history of drug use--many
other big names in the sport have fallen victim to wrestling's drug
culture and steroid obsession. Why has nothing been done about this,
even now after these latest deaths?
