Chyna, WWE Legend, Has Died at 45

Chyna, a WWE legend and entertainer whose real name was Joanie Laurer, was pronounced dead last night. She was 45-years-old.
According to TMZ, authorities got a call around 7:30 PM after a friend went to check on the former wrestling star. She had not been seen or heard from in days. The friend found her unresponsive in her Redondo Beach, California apartment then promptly called the police.


Investigators are currently looking into the death as a possible overdose due to her history with drug abuse. She struggled with addiction for years and even appeared on Celebrity Rehab back in 2008 to try and get sober. Sources told TMZ that prescription bottles were found in her home, but illegal drugs were not confirmed.
A statement was posted on Chyna’s official Twitter account confirming her sudden death:


While the official cause of death has yet to be confirmed, Chyna posted a YouTube video earlier this week that, in retrospect, made it look like she was struggling:

Chyna was a major influence in the WWE, famously known for teaming up with Triple H to become one of the original members of professional wrestling group D-Generation X. She was also the first woman to enter the Royal Rumble.
From there, Chyna went on to pose for Playboy before making her way onto reality TV with a debut on The Surreal Life in 2005. Eventually she got into adult videos and released six films between 2004 to 2013 before going on to teach English in Japan.
