How did she manage that?

I wonder if HHH will bury her one last time.

from tmz.com:




WWE legend Chyna -- real name Joanie Laurer -- has died ... and officials are investigating as a possible overdose, TMZ Sports has learned. 

We've learned she was in her apartment in Redondo Beach, CA ... south of L.A. -- and police got the call around 7:30 PM. Our law enforcement sources say she had not been seen or heard from for a few days. A friend went to check on her today and found her unresponsive in the bedroom of her home and made the call to police.

Officers are on scene right now. We're told they are investigating as a possible overdose ... due mainly to her history with drugs. Prescription bottles were found in the home.

Cops say there are no signs of foul play. 

Chyna was 46-years-old. 

A statement was posted to Chyna's official Twitter account confirming the death ... saying, "It is with deep sadness to inform you today that we lost a true icon, a real life superhero."

"She will live forever in the memories of her millions of fans and all of us that loved her."

Laurer was discovered Wednesday evening according to ProWrestlingSheet.com.

Chyna was a game changer during her stint with the WWE -- famously teaming up with Triple H to become one of the original members of D-Generation X. She was also the first woman to enter the Royal Rumble. 

Chyna went on to pose for Playboy before transitioning to reality TV. She appeared on "The Surreal Life" in 2005. 

Later, Chyna got into porn ... releasing 6 films from 2004 to 2013. 

She later went to Japan to teach English. 

Chyna struggled with addiction for years -- and appeared on "Celebrity Rehab" back in 2008. 

She posted a video to her YouTube page earlier this week -- she looked like she was struggling.

Know she became a joke. However she was a important part of HHH's career. DX and the WWE Attitude era.

I think her best work was with HHH/DX (1997-1998) and with Eddie.


RIP

I just heard the tragic news that @ChynaJoanLaurer has passed. She was truly a pioneer in our industry, and she will be missed. #RIPChyna

GOODBYE JOANIE
My heart is aching. My eyes are swollen from crying, having just talked to Joan Laurer's manager Anthony Anzaldo on the phone and been told that Chyna, the 9th Wonder of the World was no longer with us; gone at only 45.
I will always be grateful for the friendship I shared with her, but particularly so for the kindness she showed my children, especially Noelle when she was younger - taking her by the hand at WWE events in the late 90's - off to have her makeup done, her fingernails painted; bonding time between big, strong Joanie, and her tiny sidekick. A father doesn't forget that type of kindness.
I didn't know whether to post a classic photo of Chyna in her WWE prime or of Joanie from the last time I saw her - about 10 months ago at a convention on Long Island. I went with the photo from the convention because of the emotion; because it was taken at the exact moment I saw her for the first time in many years. I was told later that Joanie wasn't sure how I would react to her, and that it meant a great deal to be accepted. Like I said, a father doesn't forget. I called home on my way back from the convention – only about 40 minutes from my house. "I'm bringing a friend over to watch the pay-per-view" I said to my wife.
"Who's that?", my wife asked.
"Chyna"
"Chyna?"
"Yeah, Chyna!"
And that was pretty much that. A mother, you see, doesn't forget the kindness shown to her child, either.

I am so glad we had that night with Joanie. A night to let her know how much we cared about her, whether it was politically correct or not. A night to let her know we loved her -and always will. RIP my dear friend. I pray that somehow in death, you can find the peace that eluded you so frequently during the latter years of your remarkable life.

Tragic. I know it became a running joke, but seeing how things spun out of control for her is sad.

Sort of the elephant in the room, but did anyone feel like Steph intentionally made herself look like Chyna for this year's Mania? From the hair to the makeup, and of course she's bulked up a bit over the years. Psychologically, that scenario has probably always torn at Chyna's heart- she was essentially replaced by a cuter version of herself with more money and power attached to it.

HHH

Someone who wasn't afraid to blaze her own trail & create a path for those who would follow. A pioneer whose star shined bright. #RIPChyna
