Chris Benoit

A couple years ago WWE star Chris Benoit off himself, wife and kid. I think this was mid 2006. WWE has not mentioned his name in a broadcast since. They have all but erased him from history. Unless this guy was mentally ill (concussions?) I dont want to hear about how tragic this is. I just hope his life insurance coved suicide, so they can bury his girl, andfeed his baby. Go Panthers.

Chris Benoit was abusing steroids and viciously killed his wife, child, then himself. Of course they aren't.

Life insurance usually never covers suicide if I'm mistaken. His 3 month old baby died. The only thing that could be attributed would be a problem of undiagnosed concussions or undiagnosed mental disorder.

The NFL would never admit to the former unless an autopsy proves beyond a shadow of a doubt he suffered severe head trauma. Even so, most football players brains exhibit that trauma

There is a chance he just lost his temper. Mental stability usually ends up being a cop out. He couldn't caught here with someone else, stealing, etc...anything then acted irrationally. Too many things can contribute to a sad event like this before I would go to his mental well-being.

I thought Chris was using ambien or some other sleep drug, and that combined with roid rage probably doesn't go well.

Most life policies have a suicide clause....often 2 yrs. Means it wouldn't pay if a suicide was the cause of death within the first 2 yrs it was taken out.....after that it generally is covered by many policies.

Friends on the insurance policy as to whether they pay. Many will cover it once the policy has been in effect for a year or two.....mine is this way after one year

I was literally just thinking about this the other day.

IIRC, the Monday night show was COMPLETELY dedicated to Benoit, his career, and other wrestlers literally crying and commenting on how sad they were. All of this was done before any of the details of the death were made public.

The ugly gruesome details were released, and I imagine more than one person felt totally fooled for dedicating the show to him and crying over his death, which I am sure they thought was a homicide or robbery gone wrong.

BY THE WAY, his fellow teammates of the Chiefs are putting a fund together to help take care of his kid.

I am currently getting my PhD in Neuropsychology specifically focusing on TBI. I can verify that numerous impacts to the head have a very severe impact on psychopathology. The amount of depression/anxiety and other forms of severe psychopathology and personality change are highly correlated with head injuries.

There is no doubt in my mind that these individuals were suffering from conditions directly linked to their occupation.

While WWE did dedicate the RAW after his death, once the gruesome details came out, Vince erased him from everything media related. If I'm not mistaken Benoit was injecting his son with growth hormones.
