Chris Kanyon Dead

This is the hardest thing I've ever had to write. My friend, Chris Klucsarits - better known to the world as Kanyon passed away last night.

Details are sketchy at this point, but here's what we do know. Chris has battled depression for years and made multiple suicide attempts in the past (he has spoken openly about it on Tha O Show many times).

He left a note and appears to have overdosed on perscription medication. His brother discovered him last night - still alive, but barely. Attempts were made to save Chris's life but the damage had been done.

At this time, we are awaiting any further news as well as funeral information.

From the bottom of my heart, I extend my deepest condolences to Chris's brother - the rest of his family and all of his friends who loved him so much.

I'll miss you bro.

Rest In Peace Chris Kanyon

I know you have to be torn up, dude. I'm sorry. He was for serious one of the most creative guys that wrestled and his life outside the ring overshadowed the skills he had inside of it. RIP, Kanyon. He's really going to be missed. He was one of the reasons, if not the reason, I discovered Tha O Show.

We'll miss you Chris.

Definitely a shock considering he was on the show barely 4 months ago. Alway an exciting worker and a loss to Tha O Show family. My condolences to Chris' family and friends.

"Who's betta than Kanyon?"

Never met the man, but I was definitely a fan. He will be missed.

Wow. I haven't been on the site in a few days, not noticing the date of the article I was thinking -- hoping it was an April Fool's rib. Of all the workers out there, the Jeff Hardys, the Jake the Snakes, the New Jacks, Chris was one of the last guys I expected. He seemed to really have it together and had a positive outlook and a plan for his life. I'm in complete shock. Kanyon taught the first wrestling seminar I ever attended and shared so much knowledge, so many personal stories and feelings and was easily one of the nicest workers I've ever met. My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family. RIP Chris.

My prayers are with his family and friends, including you Donnie.

Brian Garside said...

Aww Donnie, I can't tell you how sad I am to hear that.

Kanyon was one of the good ones, he was brilliant in the ring, and a heck of a guy outside of it.

That's a shame. My heart goes out to his friends and family. That sucks.

You know, every time I hit the refresh button on the main page of the O Show, I have this fear. It's just for a fraction a second, but it always cross my mind. Always. The fear that I will have to read an article like this one. Again.

Another member of the wrestling family is gone. I don't really know what to say, so I'll say this : He won't be forgotten, because we never do.

I guess the next O Show episode will be painful for you to do and painful for us to listen.

RIP Kanyon

I'd be willing to bet Chris suffered from bipolar disorder (no pun intended) instead of just depression. When he was up he'd be way up: Cheerful, overly full of energy, and ambitious like how he recently was starting his own wrestling school.

And then when he was down, boy would he get down, isolated, hopeless, and suicidal.

It's so sad that he's gone at only 40 years old. He entertained us both in the ring and on Tha O Show. He was a part of Tha O Family and Tha O Nation and he will be missed.

I liked the Mortis character back in the day, the almost-parody-of-himself "Who betta den Kanyon?" in WWE, and his time on Tha O Show especially dealing with WWE wrestlers being EMPLOYEES and NOT independent contractors.

I'll end on a lighter note, saying we just lost "the coolest fag on the planet". R.I.P. with Owen, the two of you should team up and pull all kinda ribs in the afterlife :)

Kanyon's first interview with this web site was one of the reasons for our success. The interview was one of the most talked about stories in wrestling and put us on the map as a major radio entity.

I want to express my deepest sympathies to his family and friends. I also want to express a great deal of thanks to this man for what he did for Tha O Show.

RIP Kanyon. Gone, but neva forgotten.

It makes me absolutely fucking sick to my stomach how bad this is. it's horrible how he's gone, and it's horrible to see online (on both "respected" new websites and newz sites, too.) the amount of people already claiming steroids, or saying things to the effect of "he's gay and he deserved it." or joking that he died of AIDS. Or even claiming that mental illness is bullshit... Just awful.

Again, RIP Kanyon. We'll always love you.

Darkness closed your eyes to the other side, leaving me your smile told me not to cry, just like a dream now I believe an angel's born.

Thank you Chris.
