SUPER STAR CHYNA PASSES The adult entertainment and wrestling worlds are united in mourning the death of Chyna. She was discovered dead this past week in her apartment in Redondo Beach, California. Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch told TMZ upon hearing the news: “Chyna was a kind and gentle soul. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. I spoke to her last week and although she wasn’t her usual upbeat self she did seem excited about her upcoming projects. We talked about her working with Vivid again and she seemed excited about that. I’ll always remember how she talked and more importantly listened to every one of her fans. She got as much out of it as they did. She listened to every story and responded with kind words. She was one of a kind. RIP Chyna.” Her best selling Vivid films were Backdoor to Chyna, Chyna is Queen of the Ring, Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody and She Hulk XXX. In its coverage of the death, the Daily Mail called her a “ground breaking fighter.” Variety noted in its story that she was a “larger-than-life figure, the wrestler and actress later posed many magazines before starring in several adult films.”

 On Page Six of the New York Post, reporter Andrew Nodell wrote that Chyna “was gearing up to appear in more adult films with Vivid Entertainment before her death this week at age 46. After ending her WWE career in 2001, the former pro wrestler appeared in four porn films with the production company, including Backdoor to Chyna and She Hulk XXX. ‘We were scheduled to meet this week to discuss [future films],’ Vivid founder Steve Hirsch told Page Six. ‘She was so popular and we wanted to work with her again.’
