World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) legend and the “Ninth Wonder of the World” Chyna’s death took the world by grief and everyone has been anticipating the reason of her demise. Although she was reported to have died from an overdose of Valium and Ambien, it is now estimated that the reason may have been much more than that.
Chyna was found wasted and passed away in front of her apartment building by police less than a year before she died. She was found lying unconscious at 7 am in Redondo Beach, California. The woman from Rochester, New York was found with bloodshot eyes and smelt of alcohol. She was also carrying $20,000 in cash, as reported by TMZ.
Chyna was deemed “too drunk to take care of herself” by the paramedics and was booked for public intoxication. She passed away on April 20, 2016 at her Redondo Beach residence.
According to her manager Anthony Anzaldo, the 45-year-old was addicted to sleeping pills and anti-anxiety drugs which were prescribed to her.
“An interventionalist was already lined up as was a facility that was going to take her for 90 days,” Anzaldo said to TMZ.
The former professional wrestler appeared in a documentary “Reconstruction of Chyna” leading up to her death, directed by Erik Angra. In the film, she mentioned of her haunted past, which included her relationship with the now deceased father. It was also revealed that the one-time WWE Women’s Champion was haunted by the demons of her past.
Although many investigations are suggesting that drug overdose is the possible reason of Chyna’s death, her full autopsy will be completed in the next couple of days. The toxicology report will also come in the following weeks, as reported by The Independent.
