â<80><9c>Stone Coldâ<80> Steve Austinâ<80><99>s ex-wife Debra Williams spoke on the FOX 31 web site about the Benoit family tragedy. â<80><9c>Domestic and drug abuse is out of hand in the WWE and something needs to be done about it,â<80> commented Williams, who also claimed that she witnessed Austin use steroids. â<80><9c>If only I had spoken up sooner, maybe Nancy and her little boy would be alive today … That’s why I’m going public now. Something has to change!â<80> A victim of domestic violence in 2002 by Austin, Williams told the web site that she filed for a restraining order from Austin after a third incident between the couple. Williams alleged in the web site that Austin forced her to write a letter to the courts, ending the restraining order. Williams later consented to a gag order regarding the matter.

Bret Hart has offered comments once again to the Calgary Sun regarding the Benoit tragedy. â<80><9c>I can’t begin to even understand what could drive somebody to do this,â<80> Hart said. . â<80><9c>The sad thing about it is I never saw Chris lose his composure and I never saw him get angry. He was always a very solid, sound, logical kind of guy. Itâ<80><99>s totally the last thing you’d ever expect to come out of Chris Benoit. I think that’s why everyone’s having such a hard time coming to terms with this.â<80> Hartâ<80><99>s family helped train Benoit to become a professional wrestling.

Two days before he and his family were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide, pro wrestler Chris Benoit told co-workers his wife and son had food poisoning and were throwing up, according to World Wrestling Entertainment.
