Joanie Laurer (chyna) Blasts Vince McMahon, WWE in Chris Benoit Murder-Suicide

Whether steroids, the WWE or its owner Vince McMahon deserve any blame for the murder-suicide involving pro wrestler Chris Benoit will be a subject of great debate in the coming weeks.

Count the former pro wrestler Joanie Laurer, better known as Chyna, among those who think McMahon and the culture of pro wrestling deserve a great deal of blame.

In an interview on Jim Rome's radio show, Laurer said there's a lot of blame to go around, and McMahon deserves a lot of it.

She said that she thinks steroids, depression, and mental stress were probably the main factors in Benoit doing what he did. She also blasted WWE and Vince McMahon, saying that McMahon tends to wash his hands of any tragedy that happens in WWE and that she has no respect for Vince McMahon.

Laurer also said the WWE hid Benoit's problems and described her own negative experiences in wrestling. Dozens of ex-wrestlers despise McMahon, and we will no doubt hear from many of them after this tragedy.
