Several people in the industry commented on the tragedy on their Twitter:
WWE: "WWE is saddened by today's tragedy in #Newtown. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families."
Dixie Carter: "Devastating news. Deepest sympathies to the families of Sandy Hook Elementary School. Prayers to all who have senselessly lost love ones"
John Cena: "I can not believe the news I am hearing out of CT. My heart and sympathy to all the victims. Such a tragic day. #staystrongnewtown"
Bobby Roode: "Thinking about the families that are suffering today in CT. As a father, this makes me sick to my stomach. #PrayForNewton"
Chris Jericho: "Just heard about the school shooting. I want to puke. Time for Americas love affair w guns to end. Maybe it's best if the Mayans are right"
JBL: "Incredibly sad news in school shooting. I can't believe how twisted some people are terrible."
Jim Ross: "Wife Jan & I lived in Connecticut 4 yrs, wonderful people. This horrific, school shooting unimaginable. What if it were your kids? So sad."
Maryse: "So deeply shocked and saddened to learn about Sandy Hook Elementary. Sending thoughts and prayers to the families."
Shane Helms: "My heart goes out to the families in CT dealing with this school shooting. CNN is saying at least 10 kids are dead. So awful. Anyone that doesn't think we need better gun control laws is either in full denial or just a moron. How many have to die before we wake up? The US is one of the WORLD's leaders in guns and therefore murder. It's not a cosmic coincidence. The choice is simple, we either do SOMETHING or we do NOTHING. We can be better than this. We SHOULD be better than this."
Rosa Mendes: "A tragic day in Connecticut, I'm praying for the victims and their families. Connecticut elementary school shooting."
Michael Cole: "God bless all struggling with the horrors in ct today. Thoughts and prayers go out"
Seth Rollins: "Heart goes out to all the families in Connecticut. Just shakes me to my core."
Michael McGillicutty: "I cannot begin to understand why... What is wrong with people? Makes me sick. # PrayforNewtown"
Matt Morgan: "Please say some prayers for the AWFUL,evil shooting victims and families affected from Newtown Conn tonight! 15 min from my grammar school!"
Matt Hardy: "What a terrible, senseless tragedy that happened at a school in CT today. Total insanity. I'm praying for all the victims & their families. Today reminds me that we can't change or control others..But hopefully by changing & controlling ourselves we can positively affect others.."
Rey Mysterio: "My prayers & condolences go out to all that lost their loved ones @ Sandy Hook Elementary!"
Mick Foley: "What could possibly compel anyone to create the type of suffering we are learning of in CT? My heart aches for everyone affected."
Miss Tessmacher: "Everyone stop and pray for the innocent lives of the parents and children who shot in the CT elementary school shooting today. God bless!"
