Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, AEW lead announcer and former WWE commentator Jim Ross has stated that Chyna deserves to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on her own.
Despite being inducted with DX back in 2019, Jim Ross has stated that Chyna deserves to be in the Hall of Fame on her own for all the work that she did for the company:
“I think she deserves it, I hope so. If I had a vote, I’d say yes. It’s the same basic concept to why Chris Benoit won’t be in the Hall of Fame because the last 48 hours of his life were tragic, I’m talking about the porn [Chyna did].
“She should’ve been in the Hall of Fame yesterday, last year, whenever. Look at the list of Hall of Famers and what they’ve accomplished. A lot of them were really good, some of them not so much, some were political inductees. She certainly should be in the Hall of Fame by herself without question.
“If nothing else, for being the trailblazer for women who she preceded. All I’m saying is, you can’t use the ‘Go back and Google someone’s name,’ and they had some negative verbiage on their Wikipedia page. How did she do in the wrestling business?”
As JR alluded to, some of the things that transpired in Chyna’s life after she left the company could mean that WWE higher-ups don’t want to honour her with a solo Hall of Fame induction, but she certainly deserves one for the work she did.
