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.

CHRIS, you are a PHONEY just like the rest of the wrestling world!!! I can't believe the stupidity of the people out there, actually saying RIP to him!! Come on People, wake up, he killed his family, and you're giving him condolences!!! Chris, you DESERVE to rot in hell for the rest of eternity, you coward!!!

There is obviously a BIG problem in the WWE and this has to be the most extreme as it's gonna get. A great wrestler, friend, the nicest person (so I've heard) to do this and to leave his mark this way ??

WWE needs to take responsiblity for the damage that this "lifestyle" is causing..great legends in wrestling commiting suicide, overdosing and now this. RIP Chris and may god be your judge..my heart goes out to his wife and child and to his family left behind to deal with this tragedy. May everyone in this predicament get the help they need.

It's a sad situation. He was a great wrestler. A great man? That could be debatable. Could there be an alternate scenario - if you have read True Crime books - yes, there could be.

I am disappointed by all these outraged people posting and judging the man. Christ ordered us all to forgive, or we ourselves will not receive forgiveness. The Bible also teaches all sin is equal - like it or not. The adulturer is the same as the murderer - same penalty when you face the ultimate judge.

IF Chris did this - I chose to forgive him and remember the man I grew up watching. It is said his son had a mental impairment that could have been inherited called Factor X Syndrome. Who knows? Maybe Chris was ill too.

Steroids? B.S. - roid rage doesn;t last all weekend.

At least when Daniel Benoit succumbed to death - he awoke seconds later in the arms of the Savior

I had no problem with this guy before, but when some one kill's his wife and 7yr old son, and then have people hold a tribute for him! That makes me sick!!

All I can say is I am totallly shocked. Of all the wrestlers out there, Chris benoit is not the one who I would think would lose it so bad to do this.

The only thing I can say is I have watched Chris Benoit wrestle since he first started and respected him for in ring talent, but if this is true and he killed a 7 year old baby, my respect for him is no longer and he deserved not to live. Sorry Bret, but 7 years old, come on.....

Tragedy?,yes,criminal?,hell yes,newsworthy?,unfortunately to get the message across of the hidden dangers, yes too. But having to see the face of someone who took 2 lives posted for everyone to behold as if he were still a worthy celebrity/human being worthy of anything less than bewildered scorn, no I don't agree. Canoe is my homepage but its sickening to see that face everytime I log on knowing whats happened. The world is ugly enough at times without making stars out of killers of women and children. Sad sad stuff.

I feel very sorry for Nancy, Daniel and family members left behind, with the rigors of being married, being a child and family to a man that has been stung by the world of steriods and professional wrestling. It's just to bad that the people and or person that really knew what was going on in Chris's head didn't do anything to prevent this from happening. I don't know how the Vince McMahon's of the world sleep at night, knowing what really goes on in the professional wrestling business (steriods, drugs etc.). I will still remember you Chris for all the great matches you had.

RIP Chris

I found out from a friend that this happened and I found it hard to believe. As soon as I heard it on the radio and read it on the net I was devastated. He was one of my favorite wrestlers. You would never think something like this would happen. When it does it hits everyone hard. He was a good wrestler. I have liked wrestling since I was a little girl. I will always be a fan no matter what happens. I don't care what others say. At least he is in a better place. We will miss you Chris Benoit.

R.I.P Benoit may happiness be with you in heaven

If it wasn't so sad, the fact that authorities are 'wondering' whether steroids had anything to do with it, would be funny

Good god, is there any sane person alive that is not aware that all the bloody professional wrestlers are on steroids?????

Look at the number of premature deaths in the wrestling world , due to steroids. And do they bend the mind???? Without a doubt

Benoit knew what road he was travelling down when he chose the steroid route. And finally, previously, the wife had secured a restraint order on him - any lingering doubts folks????

Forget Benoit, he deserves no pity or sympathy, but his wife and child sure do!
