Default I guess we all know what happened at Chris Benoit's house. (Pro Westler)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Benoit It is hard to believe that someone with the world at his feet can do this to his family and himself, but I guess it shows what steroids can actually do to a person. My condolences go out to his and her families. How sad! Just look at this list of Pro Wrestlers that have died. http://prowrestling.about.com/od/wha...lersdeaths.htm I couldn't believe it!!! I used to watch wrestling back in the day and enjoyed it for the fun... yea we know it is fake but these deaths sure as hell aren't. I tried to watch it not long ago and said to myself "Hell there is no-one here that I know anymore". Now I know why: they're all dead the guys I used to watch. Even good old Classy Freddy Blassie that pencil necked geek!

WOW! The list is very sad. Almost hard to believe.

I lived and worked in Southgate California many years ago. Southgate is the home of the then world famous “Southgate Arena”.

In the 1950s watched wrestling stars like “The Black Panther” “Georgous George” “Andre The Giant” “Strangler Lewes““Buddy Rogers” ‘Lou Thesz” to name just a few, and my boss at the time “King Kong Kashey”.

Maybe the best part of the wrestling scene at that time was the referee, Pappy Boyington, Medal of Honor winner and noted for shooting down the most Japanese planes in WW2.

Steroids cause your pee pee to shrink... Guys with small pee pee's get angry.... Plus with the big muscles, it takes away blood that the brain so desperately needs.

Sad indeed.. Especially after the whole "Tribute to Benoit" that McMann did on RAW the other night... Sad...

I don't blame the steroids. I blame the man. He is the one who decided to brutally and senselessly kill his wife and child, he is the one who made the decision to take the steroids (if that even had anything to do with it at all). He is a walking breathing piece of crap, with or without the steroids.

Pug,

I agree, the steroids thing was tongue in cheek.. The only thing that causes one to kill, is thier own mind... It's not the Rap music, it's not the Video games, it's not the Movies.. It's your own mind... Evil lurks in everyone's heart, it's our sense of morality that prevents us from acting upon it..

That is list is amazing, never seen it before.

The WWE has MAJOR egg on it's face for the 3 hour tribute that was done on Monday night. Just another example of Vince "over-sensationalizing" a tragic event.

I read an article today that put this story more into the land of the bizarre. It appears that a user with an IP address from Stamford CT updated Benoit's Wikipedia profile with the news that his wife had died - a full 14 hours BEFORE the bodies were found.

Had no idea that Miss Elizabeth was dead also. I had a huge crush on her.

This guy was not a wrestler. He was a body builder who put on a show. There is a difference.

They said his 7 year old son had needle marks on his arms, too. Likely from steroid injections. The son was smaller than normal from what reports stated. That is sick!
