Get the details on the professional wrestler, actor, glamour model, bodybuilder and pornographic film actor, Chyna found dead on the flip…
AÂ post on groundbreaking WWE legend’s website states:
“It is with deep sadness to inform you that we lost a true icon, a real life superhero. Joanie Laurer aka Chyna, the 9th wonder of the world, has passed away.”
Police say they were notified by a friend who went to check on her and found Laurer unresponsive. The cause of death is under investigation, but police say there are no signs of foul play.
We’re also told it appears the WWE legend had passed away a “day or two” prior to Wednesday evening … when a friend found her body. The last known contact she had with anyone happened on Sunday evening.
As we first reported … there were no illegal drugs, but officers did find legal prescription bottles. Our sources described the number of bottles as 3 or 4 … “nothing out of the ordinary.” Also, the bottles were not emptied.
We’re told several neighbors told investigators they suspected “overdose” as the cause of death since she’d seemed “under the influence” lately.
After graduating from the University of Tampa, Chyna started training in the world of professional wrestling and in 1996 was named the “Rookie of the Year for the Women’s Championship,” according to her website. She wrestled in the Royal Rumble and King of Ring tournaments and became the only undefeated Women’s Champion in WWF (World Wrestling Federation) history.
Our condolences goes out to Chyna’s family and friends.
RIP Chyna, you were a true Icon for female wrestlers everywhere.
