Well my hubby is a wrestling fan so we heard about this earlier last night.
And it is sad that he took his wife and sons life because of his life wasn't going as planned, he's a coward I think.

I hope this Vince dying thing and his shenanigans will make him think twice now.

Way too many in their young life gone.

I thought it was super classy that Vince killed the "Assassination of Mr. McMahon" angle in light of this tragedy. The storyline was poor to begin with, but to keep it going after this would have been horribly callous.
