The wrestling world has been stunned by the news that former WWE star Chyna passed away today at the age of 46.
The tragic news was first announced via Chyna's own Twitter account where a statement read: 'It is with deep sadness to inform you today that we lost a true icon, a real life superhero. Joanie Laurer aka Chyna the 9th wonder of the world has passed away...'
Stephanie McMahon drew some heat from fans for addressing the former star's death, and now her husband - Triple H - has spoken out about it.

With the WWE currently on their post-WrestleMania European Tour, Triple H has spoken to the Daily Mirror today and commented on Chyna's death.
"It is obviously tragic and clearly my well-wishes go out to her friends and family," Hunter said.

"Brilliance sometimes, and that ability to push barriers and boundaries and be a pioneer, is often connected closely with other things that aren't so positive sometimes, and demons, and unfortunately that is the case," he went on to add.
Triple H wasn't expected to comment on Chyna's death because of his past history with the first ever female Intercontinental Champion.
Hunter and Chyna previously dated, with HHH apparently cheating on Chyna with Stephanie McMahon, who he went on to marry.
After the split, reports state the WWE decided not to renew Chyna's contract because she was a distraction thanks to a toxic environment between her, Triple H, and Stephanie.
It is widely thought that the reason she was yet to be named to the WWE Hall of Fame was because of bad blood between the two parties. That, and Triple H's complete condemnation of her porn career that she took to after leaving the WWE.
Hall of Fame
When he appeared on the Stone Cold Steve Austin podcast, HHH said that the fact that kids will find porn when they search Chyna's name on the internet were a big put off for the WWE.
However, it seems he has changed his tune, today suggesting that she should be in the HOF.
"You know it's not my decision, but I definitely think, as I have said before, that what she did in her life certainly warrants it.
"(Hall of Fame induction) certainly warranted and I'm sure at some point when the time is right, hopefully, that could happen."
It's great that Chyna is finally being considered for the HOF but it is an absolute disgrace that it has taken for her to die tragically young for it to even become a thought! A true disgrace that a woman who was so incredible and such an inspiration didn't leave to see her receive her true rewards!
