The wrestler - billed as the Ninth Wonder of the World during her ring days - is reported to have died from a possible overdose, although a cause of death is yet to be officially confirmed.

Throughout her career, the grappler made a name for herself as a woman who could go toe to toe with the men.

But she was also known outside the ring for posing nude, a sex tape and her problems with substance abuse.

Here's everything to know about one of the most famous woman wrestlers of all time:

She was one of the company's biggest stars

Chyna first landed in the WWE in 1997.

Having been trained by wrestling icon Killer Kowalski, she quickly made a name for herself as the bodyguard of Triple H.

Unlike other female wrestlers in the company, Chyna more often than not tangled with the men.

Just some of the names she stepped in the ring against include The Rock , The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

In October 1999 she made history when she became the first - and still the only - woman to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

A year and a half later she also picked up the WWE Women's Championship in front of 67,000 fans at Wrestlemania 17 in April 2001.

WWE 'scandal'

Nobody saw the exit coming

Chyna was shockingly released from her WWE contract in 2001.

For years afterwards the dark-haired beauty would allege that her then-boyfriend Triple H was responsible for her getting the boot.

According to Chyna, she was forced out the door after Triple H - real name Paul Levesque - began dating Stephanie McMahon - the daughter of WWE owner Vince McMahon - behind her back.

Triple H and the WWE have always denied Chyna's claims.

Instead the corporation claim they just couldn't agree on terms when Chyna was renewing her contract.
