WWE icon and legend Chyna died this past Wednesday 21st April aged 45 the same day as musical icon and legend Prince died aged 57
The wrestling landscape has changed drastically since the death of Chyna. The latest information coming out is that Chyna may have died from an accidental overdose in her home located at Redondo Beach, California.
People magazine have been reporting that “sleeping pills and anti-anxiety medication” may have been the cause of the overdose.
Chyna was the cornerstone of the WWF Attitude era
Chyna originally vanished off the face of the earth and moved to China to teach people English in University and enjoyed turning up to lectures and living in a different world. Chyna would even break off contact with everyone and live a private life halfway around the world.
In one of the last interviews conducted over Skype with former WWE writer Vince Russo, Chyna said she tried to date a few Asian men but they weren’t very open and seemed more shy. As well they lived a family driven life, looking after family first so things didn’t work out well.
Then Chyna discussed how she lived her life and refused to attack or diss anyone, even though her ex HHH who is the COO of WWE bashed Chyna saying people might Google her past, therefore she can’t be inducted into the Hall of Fame or be seen in a WWE ring despite having been the only female to hold the WWE Intercontinental championship and the first woman to enter the 30-man Royal Rumble match.
The death of Chyna will come as a shock to the wrestling world
WWE doesn’t deserve to induct Chyna into the Hall of Fame due to them deleting her from history, until she died this past Wednesday.
Chyna was a strong woman who suffered a lot leading up to her accidental death and didn’t deserve to die at the age of 45. It is scary to die so young and it makes you value life.
Life is worth living and we should cherish everyday we have on this earth.
