This is bizarre

I'll give a hat-tip to The So-Called "Austin Mayor" for this story entitled appropriately "WWEird".
In what is either an eerie coincidence or an investigative bombshell, a Wikipedia contributor submitted an addition to [World Wrestling Entertainment] pro wrestler Chris Benoit's entry about his wife's death nearly 13 hours before police discovered her body in the wrestler's Atlanta-area home. ***

At 12:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time Monday, June 25 -- nearly 13 hours before authorities would make their gruesome discovery inside the Benoit home -- an anonymous poster updated Chris Benoit's Wikipedia entry with the following information:

"Chris Benoit was replaced by Johnny Nitro for the ECW Championship match at Vengeance, as Benoit was not there due to personal issues, stemming from the death of his wife Nancy," the posting read.

The posting, which Wikipedia communications manager Sandra Ordonez confirmed to ABC News, was traced back to a Stamford, Conn., IP address.

WWE headquarters are located in Stamford.
I'm not sure I'm liking this story. It's already very disturbing as it is. And read more updates about this over at
