    it was inevitable. still sad to hear though.

    She was a hugely popular star in WWF during the Attitude Era. She was up there with Rock, Steve Austin & etc in terms of popularity.

    honestly i'm surprised that this took so long. She was a great sports entertainer, but she had a lot of issues, drugs being a big part of it.

    RIP

    Sooo many wrestlers die young. The drug use, both steroids and recreational drugs, is rampant among wrestlers.

    Vouch greys. She got totally eaten up by the business at the end of the day. Wonder if anyone is ever going to address so many premature deaths in the world of professional wrestling. The drugs and damage to their bodies is one hell of a price to pay. I hope she is at peace and happy now.

    I believe it was wrestler Bruno Sammartino who said that if it was other athletes dying young at such a large rate Congress would've surely looked into it.

    That's too bad - I know he had some pretty big battles and wasn't terribly surprised to see this, but she seemed like a pretty genuine person.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    Poor thing. So sad. That video was weird. I can't tell if she is just groggy from waking up, or totally wasted on something. She certainly didn't look like it was almost her last day on earth.

    Default Chyna, WWE Superstar, Found Dead in L.A. Home

    Chyna Dead: WWE Star Found in L.A. Home | Variety



    Chyna, the former WWE wrestler and reality TV star, was found dead in her Redondo Beach home on Wednesday. She was 46.

    The official cause of death is unknown.

    According to local police, the wrestling personality was found unresponsive in bed after not answering her friend’s calls for a few days.

    “There are no indications or signs that her death was the result of foul play,” police said.

    Chyna, whose real name is Joanie Laurer, last appeared in an odd YouTube video posted Sunday morning.

    Her Facebook announced the news late Wednesday.

    “It is with deep sadness to inform you today that we lost a true icon, a real life superhero. Joanie Laurer aka Chyna, the 9th wonder of the world has passed away. She will live forever in the memories of her millions of fans and all of us that loved her,” the post read.

    Chyna appeared in several TV shows over the last two decades, including VH1’s “Surreal Life” and “Celebrity Rehab.” She also guest starred on “3rd Rock from the Sun” and “The Nick Cannon Show.”

    A larger-than-life figure, the wrestler and actress later posed for Playboy magazine before starring in several adult films, including “She-Hulk XXX.”

    She later moved to Japan to teach English.

    “There’s a misconception out there in the media that I’ve become this monster,” she told Vice last year. “In the meantime, I’m just trying to get a job and live my life.”

    Wow too young to die. I didn't realize she had drug issues beyond the steroids I mean.
    if you're so incensed that you can't fly your penis in public take it up with your state, arrange a nude protest, go and be the rosa parks of cocks or something - witchcurlgirl
