Sean Waltman took to Twitter to pay tribute to former-WWE Intercontinental Champion Chyna, on what would’ve been her 49th birthday. Waltman & Chyna (real name Joanie Laurer) have a long history, first in D-Generation X, and then later as a couple. Waltman described her as the “magic ingredient in the DX recipe,” while sharing a photo collage that included Laurer with the Intercontinental Championship, as well as wrestling Masahiro Chono in the Tokyo Dome for NJPW. Laurer passed away on April 20th, 2016, at the age of 46.
Waltman also said that he hopes Chyna will be inducted in the WWE Hall Of Fame sooner rather than later, echoing a sentiment that has only grown louder since the groundbreaking wrestler’s passing, saying it “just seems like the right time.”
It's Joanie's Birthday & I was just thinking of all the remarkable things she did. She was the magic ingredient in the DX Recipe. IC Champ, Wrestled Chono in Tokyo Dome for NJPW! She was an Amazing Woman. I
hope she's honored day before WM soon. Just seems like the right time. pic.twitter.com/Nucyl63ONI
