CHYNA WWF Diva Chyna
Real Name: Joanie Laurer
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 197 lbs.
Birthplace: Londonderry, NH
Chyna went to Spain under a UN scholarship. She liked it so much that she graduated from high school in Spain. She went on to graduate from the University of Tampa with a double major in Spanish Literature. She worked as a Residence Adviser in a dorm area named University West, where she was well liked and admired for her ever ready smile. Rumor has it that she was very good with puns! She then joined the Peace Corps and was assigned to Costa Rica to teach literacy there.

She attended "Killer" Kowalski's wrestling school in Boston. When she first got to the school she was non-plussed, but she stuck it out. In the end, she left the school for professional wrestling. Chyna has wrestled for a couple of wrestling promotions including LadySport and Special Events Promotions. Unfortunately, Chyna does not feel the need to actually wrestle for the WWF on a regular basis (WWF mag. OCT 98). She feels that "being part of DX is a more rewarding experience, for now".
