Everyone knows the story of Chyna in the wrestling ring, of how she would wrestle the male wrestlers and was even allowed to win the WWE Intercontinental title.
But not many know the story of her hidden demons, her battle with drugs and alcohol, and how it ruined her life and ultimately led to her death.
I have always believed that Chyna left WWE in 2001 because of tensions with HHH and Stephanie McMahon (HHH would eventually marry Stephanie). But this article says that she left the company by her own choice when she rejected a contract renewal.
I still want to see a female wrestler win a world championship belt some day (anywhere on any promotion, doesn’t have to be WWE). If Chyna had stayed with WWE, that pipedream might have already become reality.
I love the sport of pro wrestling but I hate what it does to so many pro wrestlers.
