That is just sad to watch.
The clips, with were filmed and compiled a week or so before Chyna passed away on April 20, clearly show a woman who isn't doing well.
The disturbing videos show Chyna, apparently under the influence of something, with a bad cut on her face and bruising on her eye.
It’s tough to say what her erratic behavior was being caused by, but she seems to be drinking alcohol in some of the footage, and at one point even references spilling booze.
According to Wrestling Inc:
"Filmmaker Rob Potylo told TMZ that Chyna insisted her facial wounds were from a random bottle attack at a liquor store, but he believes Chyna was injured during a drunken fall and was too embarrassed to admit it."
"Rob said he was concerned when he saw the videos and got in touch with Chyna's lawyer to discuss how they could help her," they added. "Rob also claims they contacted WWE to help get her into rehab but ran out of time as Chyna passed away while everything was being worked out."
It's really heart-breaking to see Chyna in that state. She was in pain and still seemingly struggling with addiction. Rest in peace.
