Kathy: Nice to see people making posts that seem to actually understand (and maybe more importantly, respect) what the superstars in front of and behind the cameras do mentally and physically 80% of the year in order to entertain us......kudos!

Personal demons are personal demons...sometimes they're a lot bigger/stronger than normal. Regardless of the outcome and exact scenerio that happened, Chris Benoit, Nancy Benoit and Daniel Benoit were all human beings who were wonderful people most of their lives and brought millions of people a couple decades of enjoyment. God will be the final judge. As for the rest of us, we have to make some lemonade out of this.

No excuse for this, but : 1/How desperate must a 40 year old man be to keep a career going that depends on steroid use? A 'civilian' user could simply stop if the downside started taking over. What else can a 40 year old wrestler do? 2/ There have been a -lot- of similar murders lately. Whatever these guys might have in common should be seriously investigated. 3/ Prescription drugs were found in the home. They're unnamed so far. Certain so-called anti-depressants have been proven to cause homicidal and suicidal thoughts and actions in many of the users. ...Individual responsibility for one's actions is always primary, but what part does legal and / or encouraged drug use have in the incredible increase of such bizarre behavior? We keep treating these incidents as anomolies while they become more and more common.

Keep reporting on it TMZ. Ignore the idiots who don't think that Wrestlers count as Celebrities. If Paris Hilton killed someone they'd want to know every stupid detail.

Omg...you ppl need to get over it.You dont know the whole story...no one does...maybe no one ever will.But still your calling someone who did great things in his life all these names.Maybe he had a good reason maybe he didnt but that does take away all the good things he did do.

I was watching CNN and i am pretty sure they said that TMZ is like their "sister" site for news. So everyone who is complaining that this is gossip, then i guess you shouldn't watch the news either since CNN is a NEWS site.......DUH TMZ gets their info from CNN, yeah they may change the headlines a bit to suck you in but so does the news....again....DUH

I would be interested to learn who wrote about his wifes death on wikipedia, and then someone posted on the site that this was a big statement to make,and needed a good source to back it up. Then after corrections were made, citing pro wrestling websites as the source,someone (maybe the same person) said that was a little too vague, that they should do a little more than that before posting this. something like that,if i'm not mistaken.

This is so sad. I don't know what could have happened to cause anyone to do such a horrible thing. I still think there is more to this. Maybe we should all check in more on our "friends". I think it is terrible that even though his friends knew there was something wrong (he said his family was siick) No one even came to check on them! And who's to say that there wasn't others involved? What if his wife accidently killed their son and he did fly into a rage and kill her. Maybe he thought he could stage it to look like someone tied her up and he could go on with his life. But maybe he just couldn't do that. Maybe he just loved them so much he couldn't go on without them and he placed bibles beside their bodies and then took his own life. I don't think we should be so quick to judge. Whatever happened he was sad about what happened the bibles prove that. Maybe he was crying out for help for a while now and his "friends" didn't even notice. I bet Eddie would have.

I'm not a frequent poster anywhere, I just landed here via a link {no, not a tmz link}.
This is a very sad & tragic story there is no way to get around this fact. However,
A. }It had to do with a celebrity of sorts {just like Paris Hilton},
B.} TMZ did their job, here you all are, commenting on TMZ & the story,
C.} Just like you turn a radio or TV station, if you do not like it, do not read it.
D.} As this is my 2nd & last online post, people get your own lives, then you wouldn't have to worry about these people's lives that you do not know!!

Why were the addresses wrong in the texts? I think there's more to this than we'll ever know.
