Chyna is a bona fide legend, and she is also a WWE Hall of Famer due to contributions to DX. She never won the World Title in Vince McMahon’s company, but Mick Foley believes she could have.
In a recent episode of his podcast, “Foley is Pod,” wrestling legend Mick Foley expressed his belief that Chyna could have become WWE Champion during her career in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
“I do. I do. I mean, look, Vince McMahon was World Champion. David Arquette was World Champion. Vince Russo was World Champion. Yeah, I think there’s a very real chance that she could have.”
Chyna was a groundbreaking and highly talented wrestler who made a significant impact in the industry, breaking through many barriers as a female athlete. She rose to fame during the WWE’s Attitude Era, initially serving as the bodyguard for Triple H before becoming a wrestler in her own right. Chyna became the first woman to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship, a title she held twice, and was also the first woman to enter the Royal Rumble match.
Given her impressive skills and unique style, it’s certainly possible that Chyna could have achieved even greater success if she had continued to pursue her career in wrestling. However, the decision of which wrestlers hold championships ultimately lies with the WWE management and creative team, and there are many factors that can influence their decisions. Regardless of whether she became WWE Champion, Chyna will always be remembered as a pioneer and trailblazer in the world of professional wrestling.
