The WWE is often an unforgiving place for wrestlers who fall out of favor with the company's hierarchy.
Having been dropped by the WWE back in 2001, and virtually blackballed ever since - in part due to more recent work and accusations against Triple H - former Diva Superstar Chyna has certainly felt the wrath of Vince McMahon and co.
So when a photo surfaced online recently showing her at WWE headquarters the WWE Universe took notice. And now, speaking to WrestlingInc.com, Chyna explained just what happened when she got there.

As some had predicted, Chyna's main motivation for visiting the HQ in Stamford, CT was as part of an upcoming documentary on the former Diva. Judging by her description of the trip, though, the WWE weren't too keen to humor her:

"We were abruptly turned away...It was as cold as ice in there. I went to take the picture, then we're told to basically take our leave. They weren't having any of it. [It was] definitely an icy atmosphere."
While it doesn't look like Chyna got further than the main reception, she admitted her real hope was to meet with the top brass to iron out some outstanding issues:
"We're documenting all of that. But really, I'd like to meet with them. I've repeatedly called and wrote and will continue to do so until I get that sit-down meeting," she explained.
"Personal reasons, financial reasons, contractual - let's see what's going on. I need to know."
Seen by many as one of the greatest female wrestlers ever to grace the WWE, Chyna remains frozen out of the company (and its Hall of Fame) largely due to ongoing ill-feeling between herself and Triple H, as well as her work in the adult entertainment business.
Triple H recently said her involvement in the latter has affected her legacy whilst Chyna herself has accused the current WWE COO of physically assaulting her during an argument back in 2001. A claim Triple H vehemently denies.
Chyna's recent visit to WWE headquarters, too, has done little to suggest there is any reconciliation on the horizon and she says she hasn't had a proper conversation with HHH since exiting the organization 14 years ago.
With the WWE seemingly very unwilling to even allow her in their building that doesn't look like it is going to change any time soon.
