throughout the whole thing The sorrowful moments are few and far between but they re still important to this man s story and the writing about them was executed perfectly There are a few people who would be uncomfortable with Chris Jericho constantly praising Chris Benoit a wrestler who murdered his wife and son before committing suicide in 2007 However as the author s not clearly states this book was published before Chris Benoit s double murder suicide so Jericho had no way Season of Sanematsu of knowing what the hell was going to happen If you re really bothered that much Benoit s
