HULK HOGAN has suggested the murdered wife of late wrestling star CHRIS BENOIT had an obsession with “devil-worship” that led to marital difficulties.
Benoit asphyxiated his wife Nancy and son Daniel, before hanging himself at their Atlanta, Georgia home late last month.
Legendary wrestler Hogan is struggling to come to terms with the tragedy, but believes it arose from a domestic issue.
He tells website UsMagazine.com, “He (Benoit) was peaceful and kept to himself.
“I think it had to be something personal, a domestic problem between him and his wife.
“She was into devil-worship stuff. It was part of her (wrestling) character, but (she was) somebody who gets so close to their character, someone who gets into their character too much.
“Sometimes these people believe their own publicity.”
