A current performer in WWE is similar to another Attitude Era legend, according to Hall of Famer Teddy Long. The veteran recently outlined how the two names had similar body structures that made them look the part of a wrestler.

The name in question is Jordynne Grace, the TNA Knockouts World Champion. She has recently been involved in an angle with Roxanne Perez in NXT, which led to the two stars colliding at NXT Battleground. Her impressive physique is arguably her strongest point and has led to her being compared with the Attitude Era star, Chyna.

Speaking on Sportskeeda's The Wrestling Time Machine hosted by Mac Davis, Bill Apter asked Teddy Long if Jordynne Grace resembled Chyna. The WWE Hall of Famer stated:

"Well there is a little bit of comparison. Body structure, you know what I mean. She has a great body, you know what I mean. Looks like a body builder. Jordynne Grace looks the part, that means a lot too. You can't just call yourself a wrestler and not look like a wrestler, especially in the ladies division. But you take Jordynne, Jade, Nia Jax, you know those people will go, Bianca, you know they look like, you know, wrestlers." [3:34 onwards]

Another WWE star has also been compared to Chyna

Apart from Jordynne Grace, many have also drawn up similarities between Chyna and Rhea Ripley. However, WWE legend Madusa thinks that the Eradicator is a distinct individual.

Speaking in an interview with Bill Apter for Sportskeeda, Madusa was asked about the similarities between Rhea and Chyna. She stated:

"I know a lot of people parallel her with Chyna. But she is an individual on her own. That was Chyna, this is Rhea. So it's completely different but I can see the similarities. But again we gotta think this is a whole different era and a whole different time. We have not seen the best of Rhea Ripley." [5:53 onwards]

Rhea Ripley is currently out of action, and it remains to be seen when she will be making her return to WWE.
