Sandra Toffoloni recently said her family felt like an ‘afterthought’ when Jordynne Grace made some controversial comments about her former brother-in-law, Chris Benoit. Grace said that Benoit couldn’t cut it in today’s wrestling industry. A firestorm of problems rose, including with Chavo Guerrero and Benoit’s son, David.
Sandra is the sister of the late Nancy Benoit, a victim in Chris Benoit’s tragic double murder-suicide that also took the life of the couple’s son, Daniel. After Grace apologized for her posts, she put together a fundraiser for CTE with help from David Benoit, Chris Jericho, and Chavo Guerrero. Now, Jordynne and Sandra have worked out their differences as well.
In a series of tweets, Sandra Toffoloni explained her side of the story. She was overwhelmed by the fan reaction to Jordynne Grace’s comments. Once they finally connected, Toffoloni had plenty of positive things to say about Jordynne.
“I took some time and advice and contacted @JordynneGrace and she’s so genuine and kind. Forgiveness is sorta my wheelhouse (right? Lol) She made many attempts at donating to my foundation but I’ve politely declined. Her very sweet words were all I needed.
No, I’m not feuding with any one! It was Not the Tweet: Fan reactions knocked the wind out of me. @mexwarrior is an on point producer and my Mano @IAmJericho Imeancmon CJ is the best human on [Earth emoji]. I do apologize, I hit my limit on the old “What would Benoit be like…”chestnut.
The fundraiser got me feeling some kinda way. My feelings on CTE are well documented. It’s a factor, NOT a cause. Absolution is not a side effect of CTE. (Another time perhaps) But @jordynnegrace is wonderful and as much as I hate to go, I’d go to an #IMPACT Show to cheer you on!”
Sandra Toffoloni and Jordynne Grace have squashed any possibility of a beef. Sometimes, it just takes a simple conversation to work things out. In the end, respect won the day and the speculation about a feud between Nancy Benoit’s family and Jordynne Grace can finally be put to bed.
