• Nancy Benoit’s Sister Fires Back At Jordynne Grace For Apology Tweet
Former IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace recently tweeted the following about Chris Benoit:
“This is gonna be the coldest take I ever tweet on this app. I already know y’all gonna be mad.
I don’t think Benoit could 100% hang with most of the present day best wrestlers. He would not be able to remember matches. Also may he burn in hell, amen 🙏🏼
Proving a point: I said something very lightly critical about him. People jump to defend him. He should NEVER be defended. Dude lost that right when he gave his 7 year old Xanax and strangled him while he was already unconscious.”
A fan then replied:
“Removing the CTE, you don’t think Benoit in his prime could keep up with the best of today? May I ask what the rational behind that is?”
“Maybe I’m biased because he murdered his family, idk. Probably just me. I think we should all hate him and disregard his entire body of work. But again. That’s just my take.
I always found it revolting to see people praise his wrestling after what he did.”
After getting heat for her comments from fans and multiple people in the wrestling industry, Jordynne issued an apology.
You can read it below:
“Last week I made an irresponsible and unnecessary tweet. Regardless of how my personal emotions influence my opinion, I should have recognized the impact my words would have on friends and family close to the situation. I was completely thoughtless in that regard.
Since reflecting this past week, I’ve reached out privately to friends and family that I angered or hurt.
Among those was David Benoit, Chavo Guererro, and Chris Jericho, who are supporting me in the decision to partner and fundraise with the Concussion Legacy Foundation (formerly Sports Legacy Institute). I have pledged $5,000, with the overall campaign goal being $20,000.
I’m acutely aware that the damage has been done. I would never intentionally add onto the suffering of those already dealing with such a traumatic event, and I am sorry for my insensitivity and aggravating this already delicate topic.
This is my way of attempting to squeeze something positive out of the negative situation I created. Thank you in advance to everyone who donates.
Please read & share. Link is in comments.

Nancy Benoit’s sister Sandra Toffoloni then tweeted:
“It’s weird, I didn’t hear my phone ring. I really thought the work, I’ve been putting in for 15 yrs trying to keep & elevate my sister’s legacy hadn’t gone unnoticed.
Guess my family is an afterthought…again. I don’t…I don’t even know where to f**king start. #heartbroken
To think I broke all the yrs of silence, ignored my personal pain and rage to successfully put EVERY person mentioned in this apology tweet over time & again in the press, doing pr and on my platforms. Why did I think it would be different? F**kin Groundhogs Day.”
Grace then replied:
“Sandra, I just followed you to hopefully be able to message privately.”
