"It is with deep sadness to inform you today that we lost a true icon, a real-life superhero," read a statement on her official Twitter account. "Joanie Lauer, aka Chyna, the ninth wonder of the world has passed away. She will live forever in the memories of her millions of fans and all of us that loved her."
After leaving Triple H's side, Chyna began an impressive singles career. According to WWE.com, she held the Women's Championship for 231 days in 2001, and she's the first and only woman to win the Intercontinental Championship, capturing the belt in October 1999 and then again in August 2000.
