The professional wrestling industry has no shortage on the embittered and rant-happy. Sure, it can be an ugly business with unhappy endings, and those who choose to sound off about its pitfalls have every right to be heard. But there eventually comes a time where it becomes necessary to move on.
When I see fit, I will single out those who have abused their piss-and-moan privileges, request that they cease all complaints and/or diatribes and live what's left of their lives. Taking cues from an old Chris Jericho catchphrase, I implore you—the disillusioned wrestling personality—to please shut the hell up.
Former WWE Women's Champion and Intercontinental champion Chyna has resurfaced in wrestling headlines. The once-upon-a-time megastar has been releasing some pent-up frustration on how things ended with her and former boyfriend Triple H, and eventually with the WWE.
With the WWE Diva-turned porn star seeking closure with the company that put her on the map, Chyna admitted to Howard Stern that she and her lawyers wrote a formal letter to Vince McMahon inquiring about a possible return to the WWE.
I wrote [WWE Chairman Vince McMahon] a legal letter, it was very professional instead of like the trainwreck, all over, like crazy. Had my stuff together and I wrote him a certified letter by lawyer and said, 'Hey, are you ready to put everything aside personally, and would you like to do business with me?'
The professionally drawn up letter is a nice touch rarely seen from former professional wrestlers; however, the WWE has since declined to do business with the woman formerly known as the ninth wonder of the world.
Never one to be told what to do by a man, let alone a publicly traded company, Chyna followed up her sentiments of nostalgia with numerous tweets clamoring for a WWE return
I would love the opportunity to come back & give the WWE Universe ONE MORE MATCH!
Chyna's desire to return to the addicting pro wrestling spotlight that only the WWE provides is more than understandable. Suffice to say, the roar of a sellout crowd inside stadiums in excess of 70,000 fans is simply something one won't get from sitting on Dylan Ryder's face.
For years, the current star of Vivid Video's Backdoor to Chyna was undoubtedly WWE's top female attraction, oftentimes outperforming her male counterparts in the popularity department. During the WWE's over-the-top attitude era, Chyna was one of a handful of names that established the WWE as must-see TV come Monday nights during the late '90s and into the early 2000s.
However, the influx of a TV-PG environment in the world wide leader deals a considerable blow to any chance of a Chyna-WWE reunion tour. The attitude-era star can now be found toiling in pornographic films, and while there is very little wrong with that, no family-friendly television product will dare associate themselves with a noted adult film star.
And while Chyna did mention that she sought a WWE return prior to agreeing to shoot her first professional pornographic film, she had already gained great infamy in 2004 with her graphic adult DVD series alongside former WWE costar Sean "X-Pac" Waltman entitled 1 Night in Chyna. Chyna's successful pornographic debut was followed by a sequel entitled Another Night in Chyna.
Rather than realize the unlikelihood of being in the WWE amid past indiscretions, Chyna has since chosen to publicly criticize Triple H for what she feels was dishonesty from the current WWE COO while the two dated years ago.
It is widely believed in pro wresting circles that Chyna was a victim of adultery as Triple H began his courtship of Stephanie McMahon while still dating Chyna. Chyna was released from her WWE contract not too long after Triple H and McMahon begun dating. Prior to admitting she would have no problems working with the power couple should she be granted an opportunity to return to the fed, Chyna briefly discussed her relationship with Triple H on Twitter:
We were actually a couple when Stephanie was having an affair for Triple H for a whole year while he was with me.
Chyna continued to clutter wrestling headlines by tweeting her ongoing acrimony stemming from an ambiguous personal issue that is well over a decade old:
I found a love letter that Stephanie sent to Hunter while we were together.
Chyna has continued to promote her Twitter account and moderately resurgent brand through talk of returning to the WWE, mixed with the occasional counter-productive shots at Triple H for his perceived infidelity.
She started out so well with that legal letter, but a nice and inevitable erosion of professionalism will seemingly disqualify Chyna from consideration of a WWE return. Chyna simply has too many skeletons crammed in a closet which she may or may not have filmed a love scene in.
Despite her best efforts, Chyna has struck out during an extended at-bat behind the squared-circled plate. It's time that she take her helmet off, along with the rest of her clothes, and continue what looks to be a pretty promising career in adult film.
