Chyna finally received her flowers in the WWE Hall of Fame, but it was sadly an event that took place after her passing. Her legacy remains, as she was a groundbreaking talent in her day. Even now, others are compared to her in the best way, and that includes Rhea Ripley.

The Nightmare is still SmackDown Women’s Champion, but she has Zelina Vega to face at Backlash in Puerto Rico. Despite Vega’ home field advantage, Ripley is still expected to leave the island with her title.

While speaking to Inside the Ropes, DDP brought up Rhea Ripley and compared her to Chyna. For Diamond Dallas Page, Ripley exhibits the best parts of Chyna’s unforgettable character, especially the aspect where she could beat up men.

“You know, Rhea, she reminds me of another Chyna ’cause she can go out there and beat guys, and I’m going to believe it because she’s that good.”


Sadly, Chyna isn’t around today to see the impact she made on the pro wrestling world. She certainly meant a lot to WWE history, and the fact that we are still bringing up her name should say a lot.

Rhea Ripley has heard comparisons to Chyna many times before. She obviously doesn’t mind that either, because there are far worse people that you can be compared to, like Tammy Lynn Sytch.

What’s your take on comparing Rhea Ripley to Chyna? Do you think she’s already a shoo-in for the WWE Hall of Fame? Sound off in the comments!
