By : WrestlingDotCom News Posted on

Various sources are reporting that Former WCW and WWE star Chris Kanyon (real name Chris Klucsaritis) passed away Friday night from an oversoe of pills at his apartment in Queens, NY. Klucsaritis was only 40 years old. His death is believed to be a suicide. Klucsaritis had been suffering from bipolar disorder and threatened suicide in the past.

He spent the majority of his career in WCW and later went to WWE when WCW went out of business. Klucsaritis was released by WWE in 2004 and spent a short time in TNA. He made headlines for becoming the first openly gay pro wrestler and said publicity WWE fired him for being gay. He was also part of a lawsuit against WWE along with Scott “Raven” Levy and Mark Sanders saying the company misclassified wrestlers at independent contractors. The suit was later thrown out of court because the statue of limitations had expired on filing a suit like it.
