      If Chyna had Never Left WWE....


      Recommended Posts

      I often see Marco a lot of people say that had Chyna never left WWE we wouldn't have gotten the Golden era. Was Icon's power that strong that she would have prevented an entire era or do you think it would have went as it did? Also I remember Triple H saying in an interview all the major projects WWE had lined up for her. Do you think she would've became the female Rock had she stayed?


      Discuss.

      Nice to revisit this age old topic, but to answer the question this time, I'm gonna say not to the same extent as the Golden era as we know it. I don't feel she would have buried the division though. I feel like with her storyline with Lita, they were really working on building Lita up as someone who could take Chyna down which would have lead to Chyna's heel turn. They really played to Chyna's injury making her less dominant so I could have seen the other girls being able to give her a run for her money and the whole story with Lita really breathing new life into the division. The only thing that might have stood in the way was Chyna's ego.

          Former three-time Divas Champion Eve Torres sat down with DS Shin from Ring the Belle and discussed her top five fan voted moments of her career. Eve started her career as a Diva Search contestant where she was crowned the winner in 2007. From there she began her training as she was completely green coming into it.
          During the interview, Eve relished in the fact that the list that was put together was definitely the peaks of her career. One match, in particular, was a surprise match when Eve was inserted into the Divas Title match at the Royal Rumble in 2011. What was originally a handicap match for Natalya‘s title between her and LayCool turned into a Fatal 4-way.
          “It was a surprise to me too. Literally that morning, I find out and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, okay this is happening.’ And you don’t always know the reasons why things turn out the way they did, but I’m glad it did. It was a part of my career, it was a really meaningful match and there were some meaningful stories that were going on for that time.”
          Another top moment on the countdown was Eve finally turning heel. For the first half of Eve’s career she was baby face. She felt that once she turned heel she found her element and that is when she really started to enjoy what she was exuding.
          “Turning heel was so much fun for me. I was so over being a babyface. I was like no one’s buying this. Let’s just get over it! And having a meaningful story that people connected with a good babyface like Zack Ryder to work with. This was everything to me, and I really started having fun with wrestling.”
          Eve’s exit from WWE was during a time where she seemed like she was at the top of her game. It was quite a surprise to many that after she lost her third title reign to Kaitlyn, she quit. She had the following to say about her exit:
          “I honestly felt like there was a ceiling for me that I was not able to break. We’ve come so far. Where the women’s division is now if you had told me when I was there that women were gonna headline WrestleMania. I would have said, ‘get out of here. That’s never gonna happen.’ I felt like I was being controlled by other things that weren’t just me or my skill set or my work ethic, and I didn’t like that.”
          Speaking of Kaitlyn, Eve was supposed to win a number one contender Battle Royal that ended up not happening due to a slip-up. As a result, Kaitlyn won. This allowed their feud to get heated and eventually lead to their feud.
          “Sometimes the best stories come from mistakes. It was basically a botched spot where I was supposed to win and she did. She won the battle royal, and I was in tears afterward. I was like, ‘oh my god I ruined everything.’ But honestly, it created a more interesting story. Had that not happened, it probably would have been a very cookie-cutter Women’s Title experience. It just made it more interesting. So in hindsight, I’m so glad that happened.”
          Kaitlyn was the one that took down Eve’s third title reign, but it was a fight to make that happen. She wanted to make an impression and go out by passing the torch. In the end she wanted the title to mean something, and didn’t want to just go out not defending it.
          “I told them that I was gonna be moving on from WWE. At the time, they were not investing in women’s stories, and it was gonna be one of those things where I just went away. One thing I wanted when I left was to make this Divas Championship mean something a little bit more than what it did. And to pass that on [to Kaitlyn], I had to work very hard for that. I fought for that moment because they weren’t gonna give it to us. I wanted this title to matter, I wanted women’s wrestling to matter. And it’s a drop in the bucket of where we’re at now, but for me, it was really meaningful that I was finally able to pass something on. That was just special to me.”
          Eve comments that she is still a fan of the product and highly invested in the current women within the company. Earlier she mentioned how she felt she wasn’t able to break the glass ceiling. However, one person she would love to get into the ring with has and that is Becky Lynch.
          “I am obsessed with the women’s roster right now. There are great talents, but there are so many different characters that I’m just loving. Obviously, I love Becky Lynch. She’s The Man, right? So I would love to face her if I came back. If I stopped having kids, then maybe that will happen.”

          Eve is such a class act, I wish she would’ve stuck around just a little longer. Hope she makes a future rumble appearance.

          Production has began on a new movie about WWE Hall of Famer “Chyna” Joanie Laurer.
          The press release issued today noted that this is the only “official and authorized” feature-length documentary on the former WWE Women’s Champion and former WWE Intercontinental Champion, authorized by her estate and her mother, Jan LaQue.
          “My daughter, Joanie Laurer, led a remarkable life. I am excited to partner with a production team who is passionate about telling her true life’s story, not just the parts that played out in the ring or the tabloids.” Jan said. “To that end I have selected a woman producer to work with who understands that the public only knows a small bit of Joanie’s story. I want to restore her legacy, a legacy that has been tarnished by others. Joanie deserves this and so do her true fans.”
          Chyna passed away on April 17, 2016 at the age of 46. She was found dead at her home in Redondo Beach, California. An autopsy later ruled that Chyna died from an accidental overdose of alcohol combined with anxiety drugs, painkillers, and a sleeping aid.
          Below is the full press release on the project, with comments from Producer Erin Hayes and more:
