Born Joan Laurer, Chyna catapulted to the top of the wrestling world in the late ’90s as a member of the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). After losing the title to Chris Jericho, she started to fade away into obscurity as her wrestling career began a rapid downward spiral. Much of it stemmed from the dissolution of her relationship with longtime boyfriend Levesque, who left her in 2000 for his on-screen wife Stephanie McMahon.

No details are available yet on how she passed away, although there is speculation drugs were involved.
