WWE legend Chyna will finally take her rightful place amongst the company’s elite. It was announced that D-Generation X will be inducted into the Hall Of Fame prior to WrestleMania 35 this year. Chyna, one of the founding members of the group, is included in that induction. Fans have been calling for Chyna (real name Joan Laurer) to be inducted for quite some time.
However, the demand certainly heated up after her untimely passing. Her mother, Jan LaQue, has been a big advocate for Chyna going into the Hall Of Fame. After the news broke that it will finally be happening, LaQue reacted in a recent interview with Pro Wrestling Sheet:
“I am absolutely thrilled. And so is my husband. We have been invited to the ceremony and will be so proud to be there and celebrate this awesome occasion. She certainly earned this, to say the least.”
Chyna was found dead in her Redondo Beach, California home in April of 2016. She was 46-years-old. It was determined that her cause of death was due to an accidental drug overdose. Chyna helped break down barriers for women in professional wrestling. Especially given the emphasis being put on women’s wrestling today, there’s no better time to induct “The Ninth Wonder Of The World” than now.
What do you think about WWE finally putting Chyna in the Hall Of Fame?
