WWE has replaced their schedule to do a 3 hour tribute to Chris Benoit. Yes he is a double murderer, BUT he was also a very much loved member of the WWE who had a lot of fans and people who are very upset about what happened. Also at the time that they did the tribute no details were known, it was just known that the whole family was killed.
They have said that they found prescription steroids, which given his past injury history isn't surprising that he was on them. Doctors do prescribe things like steroids for major injuries to help the healing process. I think that some sort of 'roid rage' happened but I still think it so sad that he felt so bad that he couldn't seek help or sad to think that he just snapped and it all just happened.
As for Eddie, his heart had enlarged. It was through years and years of drug abuse. He had been clean and sober for many years, but the toll that those sort of drugs takes on your body is worse than anybody really knows. It was purely a heart attack.
As for Sheri Martel (who just passed), her death is suspicious and they are waiting on toxicology results.
WWE have a strict drugs policy whereby if they find their superstars are on them then they get 2 chances and that is it. They have sacked many superstars for drug abuse and some make it back and some don't. Jeff Hardy was sacked for drug abuse and it was actually Vince who put him into rehab and told him that if he got clean then he could come back. He is subject to frequent drug tests. Mercury was sacked for repeated drug abuse, Randy Orton was suspended at one stage for drugs, Chris Masters was also suspended for drugs (notice he isn't as big as he used to be). So they do have a very strict policy on it.
Yes I have no life........my whole family loves the wrestling, so hence we know a lot about it.....
Scary but true!
