What's the story
The wrestling world, including other wrestling journalists, react to Chyna's Hall of Fame induction!
In case you didn't know...
Breaking news coming out of ESPN earlier this morning, and officially confirmed by WWE.com, that D-Generation X will be inducted into the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame. Having said that, this induction will also include the long awaited and much anticipated induction for Chyna. Chyna had previously been blacklisted from the WWE due to a fallout she had with the company in 2001, following a break-up between Triple H and her. Chyna unfortunately passed away on April 20th, 2016 from an overdose.
The heart of the matter
Following the breaking news announcement for the WWE Hall of Fame induction for D-Generation X, many wrestlers and pro wrestling journalists took the opportunity to voice their opinions and their excitement for Chyna finally getting her spot in the WWE Hall of Fame. Triple H was quoted by ESPN as stating the following as well in terms of Chyna entering the Hall of Fame as a part of DX, and shows great optimism for her going in as an individual WWE Superstar in the near future.
"Look, people believe what they want to believe. When I said a few years ago on the Austin podcast, or show, or whatever you want to call it, there's complexities around it," Levesque said. "But absolutely, definitely deserves to be in there. It'd be tough to pick a female that was more impactful on the business. She did something that was completely so out of left field that it wasn't even being considered when we first brought it up for her to come in. It wasn't even a consideration ... it wasn't an easy thing, and against all odds she did all of that. She earned everybody's trust. She won over the fans. She won over the boys. She did all of it."
You can catch the WWE Hall of Fame live on April 6th live at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, NYC. As of this post, D-Generation X will be the headlining act that will be inducted in the Hall of Fame, including the long awaited induction for the "Ninth Wonder of the World", Chyna.
