When it comes to thinking of the most memorable previous WWE Divas, Chyna is doubtlessly a popular name given her prominence during her time within the business.

Chyna, whose real name is Joan Laurer, had an impressive career as a WWE Diva which saw her revolutionise the way female wrestlers were perceived, alongside the likes of Trish Stratus and Lita.

Defining Diva

During her time as part of WWE, Chyna made her name by becoming a leading character within several story lines involving the likes of Triple H and Vince McMahon. She also change the way many wrestling fans felt about female wrestlers by becoming the first woman to ever enter the Royal Rumble as well as the first to qualify for the King of the Ring tournament.

Despite her success, the most recent discussions about Chyna amongst the authoritative members of WWE weren't wholly positive. Triple H was asked during an interview with Stone Cold Steve Austin about why Laurer was not yet in the WWE Hall of Fame and whether she ever could be inducted.

The Game's response sparked mass discussion as, despite saying she thoroughly deserved to go into the famous club, he also implied that her later career decisions i.e. those which involved her becoming part of the adult entertainment industry, would hinder her chances of being considered.

Considering this debate which caused the issue of sexism to be raised given that other members of the WWE Hall of Fame have also made questionable decisions in their lives but are still members, it was somewhat remarkable that Chyna was pictured this week at the WWE headquarters.

The image  was shared across social media sites such as Twitter by producer Erik Angra who it has been said is hoping to fund a documentary showing Chyna's life and career.

Surprising visit 

Although it has not yet become clear exactly why Chyna was at the headquarters, any involvement she has with WWE lately is nonetheless surprising.

Even though many people supported the 44-year-old following Triple H's comments, it did turn into a bitter exchange of words between the two big-names of professional wrestling with Chyna also accusing Triple H of assaulting her, making her visit this week even more questionable.

The image which was shared does however merely depict Chyna as being in the lobby of the building and not in any kind of formal meeting with anyone in particular. 

This might suggest that the photo could well made been a means of increasing interest for the possible upcoming documentary which if it was the case, has certainly worked in putting more attention on Chyna.
