Can the WWE be held accountable for the death of it's wrestlers?
Ever since Chris Benoit murdered his family and killed himself, a lot of fingers has been pointed towards the WWE. Many people claim that the WWE is at fault. The only question I got, is "How do they come to a conclusion like that?"
If anyone is at fault, it's the wrestlers themselves. In Chris Benoit's case, It is Benoit's fault, not the WWE's fault. Benoit was the one that did the killings that were spread out over the weekend. Benoit was the one that lived with the dead bodies for at least a day. Benoit, had a history of steroid usage since the '80's. I just feel bad for Nancy and Daniel, being killed by the person they loved.
The case of Eddie Guerrero is a different story. Here is a man that earned his respect over the years. The manner in which he died, was a bit less quiet than Benoit. Early on November 13, 2005, Eddie and Chavo checked into a hotel in Minneapolis, they had breakfast, then exited to their rooms. Sometime later, Chavo received a call about Eddie not answering his wake up call. He was found dead inside his bathroom with a toothbrush still inside his mouth. The official cause of death- heart failure due to years of mistreating his body due to steroid usage and past bout's of alcoholism. Who's to blame? It's simple- It's Eddie's fault, he's the one that took steroids and continued to drink alcohol, knowing what the risks and result's might be. WWE had nothing to do with the death. In early 2002, Eddie cleaned up his act, but one has to ask themselves, Was the damage already done to his heart? How long had he been with this heart problem?
In the end, I think it is wrong to put the blame on the shoulders of the WWE. Every WWE superstar should know the risks and limitation to their steroid usage.
