When fans think of D-Generation X, one of the first names to pop in their head, usually, is Chyna. Joanie Laurer was a woman that broke barriers in the world of professional wrestling. The 9th Wonder of the World was not only a successful WWF Women’s Champion but also captured the Intercontinental Championship on two separate occasions.
Many members of the WWE Universe expected to see Chyna get inducted into the Hall of Fame over the past several years. Sadly, that hasn’t been the case. She passed away in 2016, leaving fans hoping that the company would finally welcome her home, even if it was a little late. Still, there’s been no mention of putting her in the Hall of Fame.
In a recent video uploaded by her friend Rob Potylo, we can see her expressing her love of the wrestling world and how much it hurt her to be ostracized by the company she dedicated so much of her life to.
I filmed this video with Chyna at her apartment 2 months before she passed…
Anyone who questions how much she missed her wrestling family, or what the WWE Hall of Fame meant to her.. Watch. Might be some tears… Please RT.

One of the things I’m having difficulty with is my communication with the WWE. I’ve been trying to convey that through the Hall of Fame and asking for sit downs. I think that the more that I go out to these shows and appearances I realize it’s more about family, and how much I miss my family.
I don’t want to show up at all these places with my brothers and sisters and see them and feel awkward because of the repercussions of the battle with the WWE. It’s just something that I would love to resolve and I haven’t been able to do that on TV, radio, Howard Stern or MTV.
I would like to just be able to do this privately where I can atone and say I’m sorry for the things that I’ve done. I feel bad about having said certain things under duress and pain and things I haven’t resolved privately.
Many of China’s peers, past opponents and current talents who looked up to her when they were growing up, have petitioned for Chyna’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Recently, Natalya talked about much of a pioneer she was and how important she was to women’s wrestling as a whole.
We’re a few months away from the three year anniversary of Chyna’s passing. Hopefully, maybe soon, the WWE will finally induct her into the Hall of Fame.
