Chris Kanyon dead at 40

Chris Kanyon, one of the stars of the dying days of WCW, has died of an apparent suicide.  From the Observer:

Chris Klucsaritis, who wrestled as Chris Kanyon, passed away last night from an overdose of pills at his apartment in the Sunnyside section of Queens, NY, last night.  He was 40.

Klucsaritis' death is believed to be a suicide.  He had been open about suffering from a bipolar disorder and had talked and threatened suicide many times in the past according to those who are close with him.

Certainly this death comes as something of a surprise, even by pro wrestling terms.
