"It is with deep sadness to inform you that we lost a true icon, a real life superhero. Joanie Laurer aka Chyna, the 9th
wonder of the world, has passed away," said a post on her website.
This news is not really about India sports but considering WWE as an entertainment sports , I am sharing it here. She was once a star in WWE. Chyna also appeared in TV, magazines, music videos and adult films. Her 2001 autobiography, "If They Only Knew," describes her as "part feminist, part superhero" and says "Chyna blazed a trail where no woman had gone before."

During her early years, Laurer experienced a very turbulent home life and the lack of stability may have been a factor in some of her more erratic choices later. She was also the victim of an assault during her college years before she found solace in fitness training. In 2001, she suddenly disappeared from WWE and later also went for career in porn industry. Apparently this lady, who was also known as 9th wonder of the world had been through alot of thin and think in her short life. May her sould rest in peace.
