Chris Benoit

Born: 1967-05-21 - Died: 2007-06-24
Cause of Death:

Death Summary: Chris Benoit spent his last weekend alive murdering his wife and his seven-year-old son. After apparently giving them both sedatives, he strangled them with a cord. He murdered his wife on Friday, his son on Saturday, and then on Sunday morning, he hanged himself in his basement with the cord from his weight machine.

Although the media was quick to point the finger at "roid rage" as the cause of Benoit's actions, it seems that brain damage is more likely the culprit. An analysis of Benoit's brain showed that it was in similar shape to several NFL players who had gotten concussions, lost it and behaved violently.

Benoit's brain also resembled that of an 85-year-old man with alzheimer's.

Who was Chris Benoit : Christopher Michael Benoit was a Canadian wrestler whose career was greatly celebrated by wresting fans, but whose reputation took a sharp u-turn over the course of a weekend once he murdered his family and killed himself.

He wrestled from 1985 to 2007 in the WCW, the WWF/WWE, and ECW sometimes using names like The Rabid Wolverine, The Crippler, and The Canadian Crippler. He won quite a few championships.
