By Keelan Balderson | October 16, 2007
In a move that hasn't been done in a long while, the Georgia State Athletic Commission wants regulate Pro Wrestling again in wake of the Benoit tragedy. The Atlanta-Journal Constitution wrote, "I'm going to make sure we have a way to protect folks in Georgia from the shenanigans of the WWE, " said Commission board member Cary Ichter, who is also representing Chris Benoit's father, Michael, legally. WWE Attorney Jerry McDevitt commented on Ichter's plans, stating, "Gee, surprise, surprise. Wonder why he's doing that?"
