It's been exactly a year since Chyna passed away at the young age of 45.
The former wrestler (real name Joanie Lauer) died from an overdose of prescription pills and alcohol, and now her life is the subject of a documentary, called Wrestling with Chyna, that chronicles her rise and fall in the world of wrestling.
The trailer for the doc was released Thursday and features interviews with those close to the star as well as with Chyna herself.
Looking distraught in some scenes, the former champ calls her career "a fucking nightmare" and says:
It's been eight months since Chyna's untimely passing, but the reports from her autopsy are just coming in.
As you may or may not remember, Chyna (whose real name was Joan Lauer) was found unresponsive in bed on April 20 with a "bloody purge on the pillow underneath her face." Officials say she had pills strewn across her room, along with pipes and a grinder.
According to the Los Angeles County Coroner's report, the 46-year-old was found with Oxycodone, Oxymorphone, Valium, muscle relaxer Nordiazepam, and sleeping pill Temazepam all in her system.
And TMZ also adds one of her family members told the coroner Chyna was an alcoholic who "drank cheap wine" and had an addiction to prescription pills!
Hopefully the results of her autopsy report, while heartbreaking, will bring her friends and loved ones some closure.
Our thoughts continue to be with them.

This is still so hard to wrap our heads around.
On Wednesday, Chyna's manager Anthony Anzaldo gave some insight into what might've caused the WWE icon's untimely passing.
Apparently, Anthony believes that a combination of Ambien and Valium probably caused the American athlete to overdose. How sad!
The manager noted:
This makes her already tragic story even sadder.
Police have stated they believe her untimely death was caused by her addiction to prescription medicines, and while we've heard what her friends and other WWE alum had to say about her passing, her manager just broke our hearts with his latest news.
That's because it was reported on Monday that Anthony Anzaldo had booked Chyna on an episode of Intervention just days before her death!
Apparently, Anthony and the docuseries had already set their plan in motion to get Chyna some help before she died, saying:
Chyna did her very best to stay positive.
Just days following the wrestler's mysterious passing, a documentary filmmaker working on a project about her life spoke out to the Daily Mail. Erik Angra spent countless hours with the icon, especially in the weeks before her death.
As previously reported, Erik believes prescription drugs for emotional issues played a big role in her demise. In the days prior to her passing, the 46-year-old had allegedly begun to mix the pills because she was distressed over her fractured relationship with her late father.
Speaking on the brunette's difficult time, Erik revealed:
On Thursday, it was revealed that WWE star Chyna was dead for at least a day before her body was discovered by her manager Anthony Anzaldo. Oh man.
Sources connected to law enforcement have relayed that there was no suicide note found at the scene. According to TMZ, the wrestling icon had been deceased for at least a "day or two" prior to her death being confirmed on Wednesday evening.
Not to mention, the last time the reality TV star had been in contact with anyone was on
Our hearts are just breaking!
As a longtime industry vet, we can only imagine that Chyna's loss is felt across Hollywood. In fact, many in Tinseltown have since taken to Twitter and Instagram to pay tribute to the late athlete — including Hulk Hogan, Jerry O'Connell, Alyssa Milano, and many more.
