First post so be gentle as the subject matter might not be to everyone's taste nor his subsequent actions.

Poundland had loads of these in stock yesterday.

Excellent DVD featuring everything that was good about arguably the best wrestler in the world until he shocked the world and became a double murderer one fateful weekend.

Please note that this is the Official WWE Silvervision released Best of DVD, that was pulled from it's site and just about everywhere else once he became known as a murderer so was scarce just about everywhere till now.

This isn't some recent Bi-opic after and detailing those events leading up to his demise, this is his life story and career highlights before then.

Cheapest i can see online is £7.99 for a used copy via one of the Amazon sellers. As i said Silvervision pulled all these off the shelves in 2007.

was just reading about him yesterday, and his muder suicide. His brain was so messed up, they say it was like an 85 year olds!

I believe they concluded it was steroid abuse that caused his 'mental breakdown' as it causes amongst other things uncontrollable rage agression. There have been way too many wrestling deaths associated with steroids yet it continues to this day with very little seemingly being done about it.

great find , thanks been after this for an age ... tragic story ... recommend the book .Fingers crossed this is in my local

I don't think there was a proper conclussion as to why he did what he did, as he was dead for a while before the autopsy. In the last few months of his life he showed depression and other signs of having multiple concussions. I presume these were returned to Silvervision by alot fo retailers and sold on to Poundland.

Clear contender for a Darwin Award.

Was proved to be premeditated, 'roid rage' wasn't a factor.

The media tried to blame it on 'roid rage' but he killed Nancy one day and then Daniel the following day before placing bibles besides both of their bodies. That my friend is premeditated. 'Roid Rage' is when you just lose it for a few minutes a'la seeing the red mist and going mental. That doesn't last 2 days.

I'm in 2 minds about buying a Chris Beniot product. One on hand, a great wrestler and some epic matches. On the other, the tragedy of what happened.

Have you not seen the size of wrestlers these days. They are tiny compared to yesteryear. At least in the WWE it is more strict than the NFLs drug testing policy, not sure about TNA or anywhere else.

It's not like he's gonna benefit from the sale of it though is he?

Remember him for the former not the latter.

Is this nationwide?

Somehow i can't see Hartlepool just having a shed load when Silvervision is in Kent so i presume so.

I've actually just come back from Poundland in Llandudno where they had a load.

I didn't buy though, in hindsight I probably should have and will go back.


Just so it's clear, I wasn't questioning the spending of a pound, it was the ques in there

I was thinking the same thing, but then this stock has been offloaded by WWE so they may have cashed in already.

I agree. He was awesome. Thankfully he got a world title region before he left this earth.

Its shame these days WWE want nothing to do with him and never mention him.

I am sure if he was alive until now, he would have been a multi World Champion and main eventer for sure.

Cold from me as I could not vote a murdering scumbag deal hot... regardless of people saying look at his career before being a murdering scumbag - those same people I bet wouldn't say look at Gary Glitters career before he did what he did as well to justify it...

Are you kidding me, RIP benoit, the fact is he is a murderer, if he murdered your family/friend, I tell you, you wont be saying RIP.

WWE's fault all this happend

No, just mentally scarred for life.

WWE's fault all this happend



Wrong, it was decades of abuse in other organisations that led to his problems - and the WWE too, he did really intense stuff there too - and there wasn't as much known about concussion syndrome then as there is now.

They are drugs tested, physically tested and monitered, and are offered rehab at the expense of the WWE for substance or alcohol abuse.....far more than any other sports company or governing body offers their former athletes (Gazza anyone?). He was an extremely private guy and managed to hide his myriad of physical and mental problems from a LOT of people, including his family and close friends.

And to the guy complaining because the WWE refuses to mention Benoit....are you for real? How could they possibly mention a child and spouse killer on TV in any context without being accused of condoning or glorifying his actions. Phenomenal wrestler, but he ruined that legacy the second he did what he did. The difference between Benoit and Jackson is that Benoit definitely killed, all Jackson did was be innapropriate wih other people's kids by having them sleep in his bed, I don't believe for a second he abused anyone and it's never been proven in court. His accusers the second time have a history of litigeous behaviour and are very shady.


correct on all acounts

i would like to argue but don't have time for simple minded one dimensional baboons today

Tremendous wrestler - i grew up watching him, but it's a great shame he's forever ruined his legacy. I'd buy this for £1.

Has anyone managed to find this at any London based Poundland stores? Would like to get a copy if I can find one.

Any chance someone could pick this up for me? my local has none to be seen....
Unforgivable for the things he did, but would be a nice nostalgic watch, loved chris benoit growing up watching nitro on tnt!

None in either of the two Birmingham stores I was in today.

What about the first time though? $25 million settlement and a gag order against Jordy Chandler says otherwise.

As i stated before i don't condone Benoit for his actions that weekend but i' and other's are not worshipping a double murderer by owning this DVD. Many killers are worshipped by people for reasons unknown, take Raoul Moat for example, he was just scum for his entire life but people claimed him to be a 'hero' and travelled to his funeral to show their support. At least Benoit had a reason to be a 'hero' to people before it all went pear shaped

Well Glitter is a peado (convited) and jackson paid $25m quiet money to Jordy Chandler as said above - funny how his money slowly depleted after that court case.... so many children said that he had them in his bed (what grown man, has CHILDREN in HIS bed) and had done things with them...... he runs out of cash but is free man.

You're missing the point, there was very little evidence against him, hence why he was found not guilty. Also, he paid him off to avoid spending much more on legal fees. If he really abused those children then their parents would want to see him go down for it. Why does he have the backing of so many famous, important public figures, many of these know him on a personal level and surely if he was acting shady then these people would not stand by his side.

If you want my advise, I would stop believing in the crap you read and hear in the media, ''they don't care, they do it for the money'', ''they don't care, they kill for the money''.

or he paid them off to shhh and to be honest $25 MILLION is alot of money. His legal bill would have been much less than this too. Again, what man would have CHILDREN in HIS bed that he slept in?! As for the parents woudl want to see him go down for it.... money talks. $25m when the families affected were not exactly rich is a big enough bribe to be quiet about it. Why did he not just go thru with the case and prove himself innocent? Why no lie detector (refusal!)? his fans will always back him, just like they will glitter, but most of us will always know what sort of "man" he really was.....

none in ealing broadway and twickenham, does this even existing more then 1 store, so any one, please mention names. instead of this crap jackson debate on who is gayer then the next person.

he did go to court and prove himself innocent. Perhaps the families of the two children made the allegations for the publicity and the money? I like I said before, no evidence hence not guilty.
