More On WWE Firings, Benoit ‘Extremely Disturbed’

Ryan Clark

Chris Benoit’s father Michael appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” this morning and shed new light on his son’s final days. Tests of Chris Benoit’s brain tissue revealed that Chris had severe brain damage. The level of brain damage Chris had was equivalent to an 85-year-old Alzheimer’s patient – and similar to three NFL players who committed suicide. There were abnormal protein deposits in the brain caused by trauma to Benoit’s head. Chris’ brain tissue was tested at the request of his father, Michael Benoit. Michael Benoit says that he agreed to have his son’s brain tested because he found a recent diary his son wrote that indicated he was “extremely disturbed”. Severe brain damage can lead to depression and irrational, violent behavior.

Mike “Simon Dean” Bucci is looking to move on from professional wrestling following his recent termination from WWE after his name surfaced in the probe of Signature Pharmacy linking him to steroids. Bucci maintains that everything that he was taking was for a legitimate medical purpose as a retired professional wrestler. He has also told those close to him that he understands why the company let him go and the political situation that WWE is in. There have been reports that have surfaced that if Bucci were called to testify before Congress that he would perhaps bury WWE due to the fact that he lost his job. From everything that weĆ¢<80><99>ve heard, Bucci is not upset over the situation and is more relieved to get out of the wrestling business.
