What a sick puppy! Probably out of his mind on steroids. Too bad he had to take his family with him.

Wrestling industry is so messed up. The average age of a wrestler must be 40 yrs old tops. THese guys are so wacked out on drugs, what an empire Vince Jackass has created.

I'm sure it was the juice (still no excuse), look at the guy, he was probably shooting up 5 times a day for 20 years....

I think that the entire Wresteling industry has gotten out of hand and the sad thing is that children watch the crap and look up to them.

Sad story and a sad commentary on the life of pro wrestlers/entertainers. No doubt in my mind that steroids had a hand in this...how can anyone bring themselves to killing their own family is beyond me. I agree with Da Fan, kill yourself if you want, leave the innoncent people alone...just tragic.

Give me a break......dont blame steroids..... thats an easy out, as someone before me said. The guy obviouslly had crap going on, & he went nuts. With or without the steroids, It probably would have happened. After all, they said there was a history of abuse. Steroids does not make you murder your child. Sure, might make you a little crazy, but not crazy enough to strangle the woman you married, or the child you brought into this world.

When I first heard that Chris and his family had been murdered, I was sickened. I wondered who could do such a thing. Then I heard he did it and couldn't believe it. Now they say he strangled his wife, suffocated his son then hang himself. What is this world coming to?

And last night all the WWE Superstars saying what a great family man he was. Unreal. I hope they find roids in him. At least then we can blame the drugs (yes I know he still took them) and rip the WWE's Drug testing policy
the truth

Why does it have to be steroids that made him act out? Every day in this country someone goes nuts and kills strangers or his friends or his family. Could be a million things that makes someone snap. Why don't we wait to find out what happened before jumping to conclusions?
