She had her WWE debut in 1997 teaming up with Shawn Michaels and then boyfriend Triple H in the troublesome group, “D-Generation X” which was famous with fans. Chyna acted as Michaels and Triple H bodyguard having that huge bodybuilder body. She then joined wrestling and was the first woman to enter the Royal Rumble in January 1999. She also set records by being the first and only woman WWE Intercontinental champion, trouncing Jeff Jarrett for the title in October 1999. Chyna has also been featured on the covers of "TV Guide," "Newsweek" and "Playboy" magazines.
Sad news for the WWE family.
