RIP: Joanie Laurer aka Chyna 1970 – 2016

Kind of devastated this morning to wake up to hear the news that Chyna suddenly passed away. Love her or hate her all you want to, she accomplished a lot in the wrestling business. She was a founding member of the legendary wrestling group, D-Generation X. She was also a manager for other wrestlers such as Triple H, Billy Gun, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho and maybe others. She was also a major part of another wrestling group started by the McMahon family called, The Corporation. Chyna has always been an important part of the Attitude Era in WWE. She was also a major part of the women’s division in wrestling. She’s a 2 time Intercontinental Champion and a 1 time Women’s Champion. She left WWE in 2001 and moved to Japan so she can focus on her wrestling career at New Japan Wrestling. She also made some adult porn movies and posed for Playboy 2 times.

Over the years, Chyna stayed in Japan and then she retired from wrestling so she can teach English to young Japanese students. Just recently, she returned to the United States and stayed in California so she can make appearances at wrestling events for her fans. Her fans campaigned for her to be included into the WWE Hall of Fame.

I’m kind of heartbroken over this news ’cause I’m such a huge Chyna fan. Always has been. I’ve looked up to her for years. I’ve watched her in WWE. Saw everything she did in wrestling. I remember buying both of her Playboys she did. I saw her exercise video she did and admittedly, I saw her porn she did with Sean Waltman aka X-Pac. That was the only porn I saw of hers, though.

Now that she’s gone, hopefully the WWE will do the right thing and put her in the Hall of Fame for the next Wrestlemania ’cause she totally deserves it. RIP Chyna and thank you for all you did. Yes, she may have had her problems over the years in her life but hey, we’re all human and we all have our problems too.
