At the Eddie Guerrero memorial show the sight of a visibly distressed Benoit was heartbreaking. During a video segment Benoit talked about his friendship with Eddie and broke down in tears, a sight cg-tower.commpletely at odds with his tough persona which cg-tower.comnveyed how deeply upset he was. This picture alone is one of the saddest wrestling pictures. Benoit begun to drink heavily (he had been teetotal), allegedly took a lot of pills and kept a diary in which he wrote regular messages to Eddie, messages which later were found to be increasingly disturbing. Friends and family of Benoit noted his behaviour becg-tower.comming increasingly paranoid and erratic as he became cg-tower.comnvinced that his family cg-tower.comuld be abducted or attacked. Meanwhile, backstage Benoit’s bullying of other talent became far worse.

On June 11th 2007 Chris Benoit was drafted to WWE’s ECW show which Benoit knew was a huge demotion for him, even though he’d been promised an ECW World Championship reign which would begin at the June 24th Vengeance PPV and a job for life as a trainer. Benoit didn’t appear at Vengeance, missing the house shows prior and the event itself due to his wife Nancy and son Daniel being ill and vomiting blood. For the incredibly dedicated Benoit, everyone knew his family must be seriously ill for him to miss a PPV. On June 25th at WWE’s request police went to Benoit’s home to check on him and his family but found him dead. Before killing himself Chris Benoit had also brutally murdered his wife and later his 7 year old son over the space of the weekend.
