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.

I would just like to say that as a true wrestling fan that we all lost truly one of the most gifted wrestlers ever.I know that we cheer for our own a lot but anyone that came out of the Dungeon and then wrestled for Stampede were great,I am 31 years old and have cried a few times in the last couple of years over the wrestlers that have passed.I am in shock as I was so excited watching last week and see him qualify to be ECW champ at last nights PPV.I have a lot of favorite matches of his but my fav is when he and Bret Hart fought in memory of Owen Hart in St.Louis 8 years ago,Bret is my all time favorite wrestler but Chris has always been right there with him at the top,he just made you feel everything he was feeling when he was in the ring.Also I would like to share my condolences about Biff Wellington who passed away also and was Benoits tag partner a long time ago in Stampede.I say this with all honesty that wrestling will not be as fun to watch now that Chris Benoit has left us.My heart goes out to his other children and all I can say is that my prayers are with you through this difficult time.

I've been a wrestling fan since I could crawl, and always enjoyed watching Chirs Benoit, who was certainly a trrowback to the way wrestling used to be and still was as popular as most of the "over the top" characters you see on television today.

I was at the Fleetcenter in Boston during a WWE title match between Benoit and Kurt Angle, I believe it was the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in January 2003. Although Benoit "lost" the match, afterward the fans in Boston, myself included, gave him a standing ovation for the outstanding performance he had given us. On the video wall you could see the tears in his eyes as he acknowledged the crowd, and you knew right then you were watching a man who had an absolute passion for the career he chose. It showed every time he went out there to perform.

I am so sad to hear of his death, and the death of his family. I can only hope that after all the investigations are done, the legacy of Chris Benoit will always be treated with absolute respect and class, because the man who built the legacy possessed those qualities in abundance.

Rest In Peace, and thank you for all the memories.

I was one of CB's many fans ..and this is just a tragic news....i feel really sad and I hope that the person who did this should face justice...

Im not sure I have words enough to add to this forum.

There were a couple guys who earned in my mind Truly the Best ever.Bret and Chris Benoit.

Chris gave all he had to us fans,so the only words I have are these.

Thank You Chris Benoit.

You will be missed.

I am absolutely devastated by this, I honestly believed that Benoit would be one of the few guys to ride off into the sunset - something that not many wrestlers get to do these days. I first met Chris Benoit after a match against Bad News Allen in Stampede Wrestling. My cousin was a part of the ring crew and was able to get me backstage into the locker room where I was fortunate enough to meet everyone. Even at 7 years old I was struck by Benoits intensity, his technique, and he was a real Canadian Hero for me along with Bret Hart. The wrestling world has lost one of it's greatest sons, and the world has lost something even greater. RIP Chris, I hope and pray that you are in a better place now.

In all honesty, it doesn't really matter what happened to them. The fact that this family is no longer with us is sad enough. I was a big Benoit fan, and that is rare because I don't particularly care for the new wave of wrestling. I have fond memories of Chris and his wife, Nancy because they contributed mightily to the wrestling business.
