Aside from the non-sensical programming, Storm cited the lack of safety provided to Rob Terry when taking direct chair shots to the head. Storm goes on to discuss Terry’s obvious physique enhancements, combined with the chair shots can lead to brain damage and depression. These insights based on numerous studies showing the correlation between concussions, steroid abuse and depression/suicide.
The Wrestling Observer and WWE are reporting that Christopher Klucsaritis better known by his in ring name Chris Kanyon passed away this weekend of an apparent suicide.
