WWE executive Stephanie McMahon addressed the death of Chyna via Twitter. “I just heard the tragic news that @ChynaJoanLaurer has passed,” McMahon wrote. “She was truly a pioneer in our industry, and she will be missed. #RIPChyna”
Powell’s POV: I suspect we were all curious to see how Stephanie would handle Chyna’s death given her awkward history. It appears that Stephanie was the first member of WWE management to address it, as the WWE Twitter page’s first mention of the death was a retweet of Stephanie’s comments. The WWE website had yet to mention the death at the time of Stephanie’s tweet.
