#4 Chris Benoit was utterly destroyed by the death of Eddie Guerrero
Eddie Guerrero will go down in WWE history as one of the most charismatic performers of his generation. His death came as a shock to many of the people around him. None were more devastated than Chris Benoit himself.
In the documentary, Chavo Guerrero said that he was the one who found Eddie on the floor in his hotel room and heartbreakingly revealed that Eddie died in his arms. When Benoit found out, it was an earth-shattering moment that unsettled Benoit and he possibly never really recovered.
When Eddie died, Vickie Guerrero said that Nancy Benoit was the one who came to help her with the running of the house as she was still in mourning over the death of her husband. This led Nancy to stay over with Vickie for a month.
Chris Benoit would then visit them, and Vickie says that she would find Chris on Eddie's side of the bed. Vickie said:
"He would just be there crying holding Eddie's pillow."
