Former WWE wrestler Chyna mysteriously collapsed Friday afternoon at the Exxotica Expo Porn Convention in Miami, Fla.

TMZ reported she was removed from the convention and taken to a hotel. Paramedics evaluated her and determined hospitalization wasn't necessary, according to TMZ.

She is now resting and recovering in her hotel.

Born Joan Marie Lauer, she was declared "The Ninth Wonder of the World" during her prolific WWE career, which lasted from 1997 to 2001. 

After WWE, she moved on to a career in movies and television, which was largely unsuccessful. Most of her television appearances were on reality shows such as VH1's The Surreal Life and Celebrity Rehab.

The former wrestling star has had issues with substance abuse throughout her career, including an incident in 2010 where she was hospitalized. 

In 2011, she starred in her first pornographic film, Backdoor To Chyna, produced by Vivid Video. She has since been pursuing a career in pornography and will reportedly star in a wrestling-themed adult film.

Little else is known about Chyna's condition at this time, but the paramedic's evaluation indicates that she is not in any serious danger.

TMZ also reported that she cancelled an appearance scheduled for Friday afternoon at XBiz Summit, another porn convention in Miami.
