Chyna should be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame

When Stone Cold Steve Austin interviewed Triple H this week, many topics were covered vaguely by The Game but the subject of a certain ex-WWE Diva emerged as one of the biggest talking points from the exchange.

To be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame is doubtlessly a great honour which is bestowed upon the biggest and best names to grace the largest company in professional wrestling.

Last year, ex-WWE Diva Lita was given the privilege of entering the Hall Of Fame and was inducted by her best friend of many years and former WWE Diva, Trish Stratus.

The speech Lita gave as well as the reception she received, proved the importance and success of female wrestlers like her within the business, as they succeeded in giving wrestling fans the best years of the Diva's Division, which sadly the WWE Divas of today seem to struggle to compare to.

Successful wrestler

Another former WWE Diva who changed the face of women's wrestling was Chyna, who went through several story lines with various wrestlers but ultimately put on some of the greatest displays we as wrestling fans have seen, from female superstars.

A plausible question which Stone Cold put to Triple H therefore was whether Chyna should be inducted into the company-controlled club, with The Game's reply being extremely intriguing:

"You know, that's one of those questions... Does she deserve to go in the Hall of Fame? Absolutely. ... It is a little bit of a double sided edge. It's not just as easy as 'should this person go in the Hall of Fame?'...Did what no woman ever did before and was awesome at it, and a phenomenal talent."

Triple H was ultimately unable to deny Chyna's efforts and achievements within WWE, but it was the decisions she made following her split from the company in 2001, which posed problems with her possible induction:

"It's a bit difficult..my 8-year-old kid sees the Hall of Fame, and my 8-year-old kid goes on the Internet to look at... 'oh, this is Chyna, I've never heard of her, I'm 8-years-old, I've never heard of that.' So I go type it in, I go punch it up, and what comes up? And I'm not criticizing anybody, I'm not criticizing lifestyle choices; everybody has their reasons."

The Game is referring to the adult entertainment industry which Chyna took up her role in following her time as a professional wrestler.

No exception 

Ultimately, however, several WWE wrestlers who are both in the Hall Of Fame and not, have made choices in their lives they wish they had not.

These decisions have not always been held against them and Chyna's choice of occupation therefore should be no exception and certainly should not overshadow the success she had as a Diva within WWE.

To have another former WWE Diva inducted into the prestigious Hall Of Fame would undeniably be a beneficial thing, and would remind the female wrestlers of today of who they are looking up to as idols.

As for Chyna herself, she made her feelings clear of how she would receive the invitation to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame:

"I understand that the question was asked why am I not in the HOF? I have my reason as to why however, let me make this clear. If the WWE was ever to say that I was going to be inducted, either as part of the groundbreaking DX or as an individual, Well, my answer would be what a friend of mine us to say in the ring, O HELL YEAH!"

Perhaps therefore, we can look forward to seeing the former WWE superstar receive her induction in the near future, as there is no doubt, to Triple H as well as many others, that Chyna deserves it.
