      VICE-CTE & Concussions were NOT to blame. Beniot was just a DEMONIC ANIMAL.....PERIOD!!! The excuse making in this so-called "documentary" is everything I'd expect from a #Propaganda mill like vice. Many, Many, other athletes have had CTE and Concussions, but the VAST MAJORITY of them NEVER killed their Families.

      Good job it took me this long to watch this, I try to avoid any thing that has to do with Eddie and Chris. I meant them two times one in wcw and then in wwf. They were just cool talking about family. At old Hershey arena there is a balcony were you could watch the wrestlers come and park and walk in the building. They were there I said sorry to interrupt. They said it is ok , I just came out here to remember seeing Hogan , Piper, Big John walk in back when I was a kid. When I got in high school would hang out in the parking lot and smoke weed with them. Chris and Eddie said came with us and let sit back stage and moved me to a ring side seat. With every thing going on today it is time to turn to Jesus the son of God and ask for forgiveness of our sins.

      Idgaf what he did. Chris Benoit deserves to be in Hall Of Fame as one of the greatest of all time... His personal life had nothing to do with career... A rapper or actors personal life has nothing to do with the work and entertainment they provide for us fans. We don't pay money to be in their personal lives. Chris Benoit top 5

    One of the best documentaries that I have watched in years. Probably the most elaborate documentary that tells the story of Chris Benoit's dark journey into madness. I was a huge Chris Benoit fan and was shocked by the news of what he had done back in 2007. Nancy and Daniel were innocent. Only God the details of what happened on that horrible weekend.

    People forget benoit was in a perpetual state of grief. Between eddies death and his. Benoit lost his neighbor Jonny grunge (the one nacy called in sandra story). one of his mentors in japan , the big bossman, and sherry martel died a week before . Plus more. Both chris and nacy were losing friends left and right and it took a toll on both of them....

    I loved Eddie and Chris. I stopped watching wrestling in 2009. The deaths were too much for me as a child. I mean so many of these wrestlers died so young. Become a them to death and they would die so young. Sad. 😭

    I think Eddie and Chris' deaths provoked Jericho to walk away from wrestling for 2 years. I mean he wanted to pursue his music and other things but to see your peers start to change, would make me not want to come back. Also Chavo is a strong dude to have to deal with his Uncle and his Uncle's best friend die within a year of each other.

    BENNYBTJ 10 hours ago +1

    let’s all be honest...Benoit most likely did those terrible things due to depression and/or anxiety along with substance abuse. think about it, he passed away basically a year after Eddie did. Benoit was not only was scarred from it but dramatically changed him as well. he was literally declining mentally and physically. his family, friends, and coworkers even said that Benoit was a totally different person. everyone grieves differently, but Benoit took this death the worst out of everyone...he lost his brother and best friend, he didn’t know how to cope with a loss this severe and continue to do what he thought was right in his mind...and that was wrestling. i’m not trying to make excuses or explanations for the terrible things he has done...but we all need to understand that this scenario maybe the truth if looked at very carefully. RIP Eddie and the Benoit family

    Every sport has a tragedy that sticks out from the others.
    NBA was Kobe Bryant
    NFL was OJ Simpson/A. Hernandez
    WWE was Chris Benoit/Eddie Guerrero

    Stick to the pretend areas of entertainment, that sometimes have real incidents. Your view numbers will stay uplifted. You shouldn't try to do your fake news and propaganda at all, and your exploitation of this tragedy is not acceptable either, but at least these people wanted to speak.
    The laying on Eddies side of bed and hugging pillow is pretty far off usual grief, especially when he had a wife and kids. Seems like he was in love with Eddie - as If he loved him even more than his kids, like he lost his spouse too. That seems way off even terrible grief, war buddies that lose a close man right at their side usually don't forsake their family like that.

    I will ways believe Kevin had something to do with the murders of the Benoit family. If Chris did it, like they say. Then, why did both Nancy and Chris text the same message to their friends. And, Chris and Nancy loved each other so deeply. I can't see Chris doing this. Never did and never will. RIP Benoit family and Eddie. People involved in the Benoit family murders will feel and see karma strike them down in the future.
