Wrestler, entertainer Chyna is dead at 45 (http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/21/entertainment/chyna-wrestler-dead/)


To say hearing about her passing is shocking is an understatement. She was only 45 years old! Way too young. When she first came on to the wrestling scene, I was intrigued because she was so different. She never said anything and was just a "Bodyguard" for HHH. I had never seen anyone quite like her. And then she disappeared, only to resurface later looking completely different. It was a such a massive transformation with all the work she had done that I was convinced it was someone else. It took awhile before I got use to her new look and she was even better, look-wise as well as a performer, in and out of the ring. She was great. Really shocked that she is gone.

uh, lots of people dropping dead at far to young an age.

I know sh*t happens, which is typically accidental, but when people are so young and no accumulative (cancer) health issues, makes me wonder about other outside influences.

Well, Joanie has had a lot of problems with drugs over the years and her last video (about a week ago) on YouTube, she didn't look well.

What a great montage clip. Very well done. It just reminded me why I liked her as a wrestler as well as her personality.
