In Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit & The Fall of The Pro Wrestling Industry, author Matthew Randazzo V explores the events leading up to the grisly demise of World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Chris Benoit. In an unexpected, although not altogether surprising fit of madness in June, 2007, Benoit strangled his wife, choked his seven-year-old son to death and then hung himself from his own weight machine.
Beyond Benoit’s twisted story, Randazzo’s shocking expose delves deep into the scandals and cover-ups of the global wrestling industry, where drug addictions, sociopathic superstars and broken families are the norm and situations like Benoit’s are all-too-often ignored. Bringing to light previously unpublished stories of racism, drug abuse, sexual misconduct and organized crime ties, at long last Matthew Randazzo V reveals the dysfunctional, sadistic underbelly of the multi-billion dollar wrestling business; the Ring of Hell that ultimately engulfed Chris Benoit.
