Have your say about Chris Benoit
Thu, September 13, 2007

Canadian Pro wrestler Chris Benoit suffered brain damage from his years in the ring that could help explain why he killed his wife, son and himself, a doctor who studied Benoit’s brain said Wednesday.

Steroid use also has lingered as a theory, since anabolic steroids were found in the home and tests conducted by authorities showed Benoit had roughly 10 times the normal level of testosterone in his system when he died.

As I sit here and read one after another, the thoughts and ideas created by you all, I say this. I respected Chris just like most wrestling fans from the past but with that I ask another question...What if he killed your wife and your seven year old kid? Tell me would you sill respect his accomplishments and talent in the ring. Whats the difference? A kid is a kid, a wife is a wife. A MURDERER is a MURDERER. Insane or not! This will be the last time the thought of him will meet my mind.

I have been a Chris Benoit fan forever. i never would have thought him to be such a monster. How many more SUPERSTARS have to die before they realize that there are some dangerous habits happening within vince's entertainment world. i wouldn't have thought the world be so cold as to help vince to support death. as long as us fools pay for those damn tickets . we help vince give the STARS the good drugs. DID you see how Fast he danced around this devistating situation. might i add with no sense of moral or value and most of all heartless as usual. what the hell are we all doing??? how long is going to go on? how many other's?? hasn't their been enough victims to the kaos that vince create's? how long before a billionaire stands liable for his actions. P.S vince don't you realize that all YOUR wrestlers talk about the steroid trip..... it's ironic how your the one always holding the bag. TO DANIEL. REST IN PEACE BABY. WERE SORRY WE WEREN'T SMART ENOUGH TO HELP. FOR THIS WE SHOULD LEARN TO TAKE BETTER CARE OF ALL CHILDREN. WE LOVE YOU SWEETHEART AND WE WILL NEVER FORGET.

When people mourn Chris Benoit, they are mourning the man that they saw day in and day out perform to the highest quality in that ring, they are mourning a man that they look up to and respect. This man is someone that we would never suspect to be a murderer - even more so of his own family. Thats why it is so hard for people to come to terms with this because this would not have been expected of a man like Chris Benoit. It's hard to let go of something you've known for so many years - and for your views to change on something which is the total opposite is nearly impossible. I just want people to know that we are not praising a murderer - we are mourning a legacy. Yes, his wife and his son died, yes it is a tragedy, but we also have to realize that Chris was hurt in all this too - he was going through something he could not control, and something that we will never understand. I'm sure that if he could, he would take this back. I grieve for his wife and his son and hope that somehow, Chris will be forgived.

I was truly shocked. My family and I have been wrestling fans for many years. We would have never expected this.But you never expect something like this. I had a uncle who put a gun to his heart and left a suicide note about things that I guess had been building up for years. I wish my uncle and Chris, would have gotten help. I dont think they are thinking at the time about how much pain they cause. I am so sorry he had to take his wife and son with him.I pray for his family and WWE.Even though Chris Benoit, was so wrong for what he has done, I am not here to judge him. That will be done by God.My family and I still think he was an awesome wrestler and that will never change.May they all rest in peace.

Ive been a Chris Benoit fan for many years. I have never been so shocked by anything, just cant believe it. A total tragedy that a 7-year old kid has died in all this.

How could this happen?

Drugs, steroids, stressful life, who really knows. I have been a Wolverine fan for years. I am deeply sadden by this weeks events. I do have a concern. I know they spend milions on physical ailments in wrestling, but what about mental concerns. You see doctors at ringside when someone is hurt, but what about after the matches. I once read Rick Flair wrestled over 340 nights a year,in his hayday! That is a crazy schedule. When do they have time to relax and be with there family? How often do they see a psychologist? It seems to me with there lifestyle and stress level, management should take a active role in there physical and mental well being. After all, without the superstars there would be no WWE. Come on billionair Vince show that you do care about your employes. Enough said. God bless his wife and sonand God forgive Chris.

Chris Benoit died a coward. Why people make him out to be some kind of hero is beyond me. By brutally killing his wife and 7-year old son before he killed himself really tell the story what he was all about.

Condolences to Chris' family and friends. May those that struggle with personal problems recieve the support they need. Enough said.

Maybe now some people can get what depression can be become and the horrors that can happen.

Stress from competing in the WWE can make some of the wrestlers take steroids

All I can say is that I condemn what Chris did, but only god can condemn him

Maybe people should now start to look at depression much more seriously and look at how to help especially at work. I know what depression can do I suffered from it and still do, but I work for a great company that has helped me and so has my family. I believe Chris had no help from anyone and he did the unthinkable. Yes people depression can bring the worst of demons out and unfortunately it did with Chris and family.
