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.

It is too soon to speculate on what has occurred at the Benoit home. Whatever the case, it is tragic. Benoit was a great wrestler and athlete, a grad. of the New Japan dojo and someone who gave it all to the sport. My sincere condolences to Chris and Nancy's families and loved ones. Blessed Be.

I am saddened and dismayed by this terrible news. I can't imagine his state of mind if the reports are true and that he actually killed his own son and his wife. I pray for the families affected and I hope God has mercy on Mr. Benoit.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I'm here in Atlanta, and it is confirmed... Benoit's death was a double murder suicide. I was a huge fan, but I cannot honor the memory of a man that killed his wife and 7 year old son in cold blood and then took his own life. Unbelievable.

We must remember not to throw stones. Whatever the circumstances are... there are family and friends who need our prayers. My son works for WWE and I know the entire crew is feeling the pain of losing a great wrestler and his family. Let us not judge... but be sympathetic. May God bless us all.

This is truly a tragedy. I wish somehow there would have been support for whomever...whatever happened. We need Jesus. Please do not delete this because it is true. We need Jesus. To save us and empower us to make it in this evil world.

Its always so hard to watch and hear about these things, but when its someone you admire, and have watched for years, its hits you pretty hard. I usually find out about these tragidies before the televised shows, but tonight I didn't know until the in memory graphic was shown, I was shocked. I couldn't believe it. I am really going to miss Chris Benoit, I had the chance to meet him once before, and just recently I saw him in the parking lot after an event. this is a very dark day in pro wrestling. Thank you Chris, you will be missed dearly.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEND MY CONDOLENCES OUT TO THE BENOIT FAMILY. BENOIT, YOUR WERE THE BEST.

This is absolutely heartbreaking. I hope that what I just read was erroneous and it was not a murder-suicide. I am sitting here watching Raw and all I hear is how he loved his family and they were #1 in his life. Like others here I grew up watching Beniot in WCW and WWE and was never disappointed when I saw him. A true great has been lost.
