The ninth Wonder of the World, Chyna, was a one of a kind performer. She broke ground for other women, and gave people like her a chance to do well in sports entertainment.
Before, women were looked over more than not. They were used as Barbie Dolls for show and hardly ever saw ring time. While Chyna was a beautiful woman, she didn't want to have that on her when she could do so much more.
She was not only a multi-time Women's Champion in the WWE, but she also was the first woman to win the Intercontinental Championship, something no woman has done since.
The WWE thought that if she could take on other men for titles, then why not put her in the Royal Rumble?
So they did. She managed to squeeze her way into the 1999 Royal Rumble after throwing Vince McMahon over the top rope in the Corporate Rumble earlier on.
She entered and the crowd really showed appreciation. She made history in 1999, by being the first woman to enter the Rumble. But what she did in it was very cool.
While she didn't stay long, she immediately attacked Mark Henry upon arrival into the match. She ended up eliminating him, but once she turned around after eliminating the World's Strongest Man, she was then eliminated by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.
She also participated in the 2000 Royal Rumble match, where she eliminated Chris Jericho, but was then eliminated herself by Big Boss Man right after she eliminated Jericho. She spent about the same amount of time in the match as she did in '99: not long.
I loved this because of the history made, and how ground breaking it was. To me, it has to be one of the best moments in Rumble history.
It would be like seeing Beth Phoenix in the match if we compare it to today, which wouldn't be a bad idea, WWE. I'm just saying.
