I nevered seen this comming I went threw a lot just to see a ticket just to see him on smackdown but when I heard it was cancelled I didn't know why then when that night was on I seen that R.I.P. page of him - SmoothCriminal

I bawled my eyes out when I heard about his death. He was my favorite wrestler of all time! - jbradbradley

I have been a wrestling fan all my life and Chris is the best I've ever seen.

Look, I really don't care about sports, but I have to say, this guy's death was in no way "sad." He killed his wife and son, and killed himself too. He killed himself so he would't cause more awful events. - 445956
