If there is a hell, I'm pretty sure Mr. Benoit is roasting about now. RIP to his wife and son.

We're Kings fans, we're already in hell.
Chris Benoit didn't even havbe the decency to shoot his wife and kid. Follow me here, if you're asleep and you get shot in the head you die instantly not really knowing what happened. he strangled his wife so for the last minutes of her life she knew exactly who and what was happening. Then he goes off and killed his kid in a slow miserible death as well. AT least he had the decency to kill himself.

I don't give a **** what you believe and I could not even care less what you don't like reading. I hope he burns in hell for killing his wife and child and I dont care what kind of mental problems he had. If he killed them and then was sent to prison then I would wish on him a gang rape of epic proportions for years on end and THEN Hell. Yeah, Hell. The firey place in the bible.

we are all sinners , that doesn't neccisarily correlate with going to Hell And how can a human not think that killing a child and a woman is wrong? Again, I hope God sees fit to roast benoit on a spit in Hell. HELL!

Like I said in a previous post, crazy can happen to anyone. You and me included. From what it sounds like, steroids could have been a factor. The side effects after years of use are depression, paranoia, rage, etc. It fries your brain among other things. Ok, so he should have been smart enough to not take steroids but look at the lives professional wrestlers have. They work 300 days out of the year taking abuse like no other athletes. They need drugs to keep going, hence the high death rate of these guys. The British Bulldog for example died from pain killers. The worst part is that they aren't taken care of after they're done wrestling.

It runs in my family so I know. It could happen to any of us which is why I do feel sorry for him as well as his wife and kid.

That's really too bad, especially since most of us had correlated Chris Benoit the great performer as being Chris Benoit the great man.
On a side note, I did enjoy the Benoit/Malenko match they aired yesterday. I miss those glory years of Nitro where the Malenkos/Mysterios/etc would wrestle great matches each and every week. And the "1000" on Malenko's trunks reminded me of when Chris Jericho was feuding with him and Jericho declared himself "The Man of 1004 Holds." I miss simple humor like that.

I'll always think of Jericho pronouncing Benoit how it's phonitically spelled. Chris Benoyt! And calling Kurt Angle, Kirk Angel.

According to the WWE, he tested negative for steroid use in April.
Frankly, based on the details, it doesn't seem like a rage thing where someone just snaps. It was very deliberate & carried out over a few days. She was bound plus he put a bible by each of them which just isn't indicative of "roid rage" where someone just goes off & loses it. Looks more like mental illness to me.
I agree with Nasti - crazy can happen to anyone & it can go undiagnosed for many years. Particularly if it's something like bi-polar disorder.
What he did was reprehensible but I don't think it's my place to wish eternal damnation upon anyone. Well, maybe Gary Bettman but that's different.
