John Cena appeared to allude to the day Chris Benoit was found dead in a Twitter message prior to tonight’s Raw SuperShow in Corpus Christi, Texas.
“Home of Whataburger. An arena of celebration…and reflection. All cities are wonderful to WWE..but Corpus..I will never forget,” Cena wrote Monday.
On June 25, 2007, WWE canceled a three-hour-long live RAW show that was to have taken place in Corpus Christi, Texas after news broke than Benoit and his family were found dead in their home. WWE instead paid tribute to the life and career of Benoit with matches and segments from the Hard Knocks: The Chris Benoit Story video release and comments from wrestlers and announcers from RAW, SmackDown and ECW. It was not until the program was nearly over that reports surfaced that police were working under the belief that Benoit murdered his wife and son before killing himself.
