WWE News: Stone Cold Steve Austin believes that Chyna should be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame
What’s the story?
During the recent episode of the Steve Austin show, former WWE World Champion and Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Major League Wrestling’s Court Bauer decided to discuss WWE’s In Your House 16: Canadian Stampede show.
While discussing the Canadian Stampede show, both Bauer and Steve Austin claimed that former WWE Women’s Champion and the late great Chyna deserves a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame.
In case you didn’t know…
Chyna is considered as one of the greatest female wrestlers of all time and arguably one the greatest superstars to ever step foot into the WWE. During her time with WWE, Chyna was billed as the “Ninth Wonder of the World” and she also remains as one of the founding members of D-Generation X.
She was also WWE’s first female enforcer (during her time with DX) and also won the WWE Intercontinental Championship, and to this day remains as the only female star to do so. Chyna is also the first female competitor to enter the Royal Rumble and the King of the Ring event; she also remains as the first woman to ever challenge for the WWE Championship.
Chyna also holds single victories over prominent superstars such as Triple H, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, and more. Following her departure from the WWE, she was labeled as the “most dominant female competitor of all time”.
The DX member made her final in-ring appearances for NJPW and TNA before announcing her retirement from wrestling in 2011. Chyna sadly passed away at the age of 46, in 2016 due to a prescription drug overdose.
The heart of the matter
Both Steve Austin and Court Bauer decided to look back at WWE’s In Your House 16: Canadian Stampede show on this week's episode of the Steve Austin Show, during which Mankind wrestled Triple H with/Chyna.
Austin had some high praises for the match between Mankind and “The Game” and thinks that the two men had a great bout with each other. However, according to the “Texas Rattlesnake” he also believes that it was Chyna who had an underappreciated, yet powerful appearance during the match.
Austin stated that Chyna had a great impact on the wrestling business, in overall and he believes that the “Ninth Wonder of the World” deserves to be recognized as a WWE Hall of Fame.
Chyna has had a lot of issues with the WWE in the past, but, Vince McMahon’s company has also appreciated the former Women’s Champion after her death.
It will be interesting to note if WWE decides to forget the past and induct Chyna into their Hall of Fame anytime in the near future.
I have been a massive fan of Chyna my entire life and would absolutely love to see her get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, sooner rather than later.
