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:
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
This is just so heartbreaking.
On Wednesday, it was confirmed that WWE star Chyna (whose real name was Joan Laurer) was found dead in her Redondo Beach, CA home. She was only 45 years old.
How tragic! Apparently, the police were notified about Miz Laurer's passing when her manager Anthony Anzaldo called them after finding the wrestler unresponsive in her bed. While the cause of death is still being investigated, cops believe that there was no foul play involved in Chyna's death.
In a recent statement, the police department explained:
It's a sad day for the WWE as Robert Windham, aka the Hall of Fame wrestler Blackjack Mulligan, has passed away at the age of 73.
Cause of death is not currently known at this time.
Not only was Windham a U.S. Marine in Guam, but he also played for the New York Jets before he gained the majority of his fame in the wrestling ring. Robert was a stand out athlete as he stood 6-foot-9 and weighed about 345 lbs.
Blackjack gained a lot of attention for his signature style — rocking a cowboy hat, leather glove, and a wicked mustache. In the ring, he was most remembered for his iron claw hold that took down several opponents.
The WWE released a statement regarding the wrestler's passing saying:
Wrestlemania is the biggest event in wrestling, so it's no surprise some of the biggest WWE stars crashed the ring at the Sunday night event.
Though we were a bit surprised to see a basketball legend take on some of the most ferocious opponents in a 20-man Battle Royal…
The sold out crowd of Wrestlemania 32 was treated to tons of action, but the main event was no doubt the return of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who took a break from filming the upcoming Baywatch movie to return to his roots!
We could totally smell what the Rock was cooking as he took on Bray Wyatt and his bearded clan of brothers, jokingly accusing them of being inbred and members of Duck Dynasty. LOLz!
Luckily, the Rock had a surprise ally to help him in the ring, his longtime rival John Cena — who put his feud aside to help Johnson take on Wyatt, Braun Strowman, and Erick Rowan!
Aside from the Rock/Cena teamup, the biggest shock of the night was the
The WWE and Fifth Harmony's fan bases might not intersect that much — but the girl group seemed right at home when they blessed Wrestlemania 32 with the gift of harmony!
Wearing gorgeous red gowns (foreshadowing the bloodshed to come?), the flawless fivesome looked ready to rumble at the Dallas event on Sunday night.
Staying true to their name, 5H elegantly harmonized America The Beautiful to kick off the event — and we're pretty sure they slayed harder than any of the wrestlers in the ring. LOLz!
Sure, performing for a different audience might have been intimidating for the quintet — but the power of 5H's vocals totally won over the crowd of mostly drunk, rowdy wrestling fans!
Ch-ch-check out the patriotic performance (above)!
