A Ninth Wonder Passes

DO NOT USE

Joanie Laurer, better known by her nom de guerre, Chyna, was reportedly found dead in her Redondo Beach apartment last night.

CNN has reported that police were notified by a friend of Laurer’s that checked in on her and found her unresponsive. No cause of death has been determined yet, however there were no reported signs of foul play.

The former University of Tampa graduate rose to fame in World Wrestling Entertainment as the enforcer of the faction D-Generation X. She later had a dominant run as the Women’s Champion. Laurer was a trailblazer as she was not only the first woman to compete in both the Royal Rumble and the King of the Ring matches, but was also the only woman to hold the Intercontinental Championship.

The 9th Wonder of the World had a tumultuous post-WWE life, but found the strength to recover. Unfortunately, with many in the business of professional wrestling, Chyna is gone far too soon. Laurer was 46.
