To those blaming his illness, Benoit was nuts because he chose to do several things that were obviously unsafe. That was a decision he made. He then made further decisions to not get help long after he knew something was wrong. While he was possibly not capable of a rational decision at the time he killed his family, he got to that point of his own free will.

Also, can we link to someone who can actually write next time? Good God that's a shiatty blog post.

RepoManTSM: Am I the only one who imagines Benoit killing Daniel with the crippler crossface dressed up in his wrestling tights while Our Lady of Peace plays in the background?

You mean are you the only one here who has such a farked up conscience that it renders you to be a farked up sick bastard?

Probably not but you are one of the minority deranged enough to actually put it out there for all to see. Congrats.

saintstryfe: cman: It is a shame what he did.

Parents who kill their own kin are the most horrible people in the whole world. Benoit had a legacy that few Professional Wrestlers could claim. He threw it all away when he did this cowardly act.

Chris Benoit should never have his name rehabilitated. His legacy should stay as it is: as a piece of shiat.

He was sick. His brain was not working. He was unable to think clearly, like he was permanently drunk - but without the physical disabilities that state offers to clarify you're not right. He was very very badly off. He struck in anger when he wasn't angry, and when faced with his act, he was so despondent his only idea was to kill himself.

There's blame, and Chris deserves some of it. He should have stopped the first time something happened, but didn't. That's on him I tender much more blame to Vince McMahon. He let people skate by with only cursory checkups. He didn't call for regular neurological scans to see this sort of damage and work to prevent it. He didn't ban the kind of moves that got people hurt. He ignored so many warning signs, so many "wow that's strange" moments. He did it for his own personal profit. And it's not just Chris - It's Eddy (don't you think a guy with a past of drug use might want some extra cardio tests once every 6 months?), it's dozens of guys recently out of contract the moment they're not immediately useful to him who turn up dead. It's a long pattern of abusing people.

Others deserve blame too - but Chris himself and Vince - they're the big ones.

To me, Chris will always be the guy who's hugging Eddy at the end of WrestleMania 20. He'll the the guy who had hilarious skits with Edge and Christian. He'll be the Pegasus Kid, flying off the ropes into Masahiro Chono's boot. He'll be the one putting up weekly curtain-puller classics against Chris Jericho on Nitro. He'll be the guy who broke down at his friend Eddy's death.

His death, and his family's death, is a long series of missed and ignored s ...

Although I do believe that his neural capacity was affected by his risky style, it does not still excuse him for killing his family. When it comes down to it, the simple notion of choice always is a part of one's decision making process. He was a very depressed man. Eddies death really farked him up bad. He could no longer take the pain.

It was by choice that he took their lives. The text messages show the side of a man who knew what he was doing.

Cythraul: Captain Steroid: Benoit was supposed to challenge CM Punk for the vacant ECW Championship that night at the WWE Vengeance PPV. I was going to order the show, because Punk vs Benoit would've been a 5-star instant classic, "Match of the Year" contender.

A couple of hours before the show, I read online that Benoit had backed out due to a "family emergency".

Benoit NEVER cancelled an appearance, unless he was injured and not medically cleared to compete. I figured it must be serious, but...

'Family emergency,' AKA: I've tied my family up and I'm about to murder them.

Well imagine if they broke loose while he was wrestling. He had to strangle them right away.
