Jan LaQue, mother of deceased WWE Superstar Joanie Laurer (Chyna), took to Facebook today, the day after what would have been her late daughter’s 49th Birthday, to implore the WWE to do ‘the right thing’ when it comes to Chyna’s Hall of Fame induction:
“As many of you know, yesterday would have been Joanie’s (Chyna’s) birthday. I truly appreciate all of the messages and rememberances of her that were posted by so many of you. As you can imagine, it’s always a very sad day for me. But it helps a lot to know how many people remember her and loved her. It’s one of the worst things in the world to lose a child. We HAVE to get her into the WWE hall of fame. She richly deserves to be there. WWE – LISTEN UP and do what’s right for Chyna!! You owe her that for what she did for you and women’s wrestling. She earned her place there. And it’s long overdue.”
Laurer was found dead in her Redondo Beach, California home on April 20th, 2016. Since that time there have been calls for the WWE to induct Chyna, the only woman in history to hold the WWE Intercontinental Championship, into the WWE Hall of Fame.
