A WWE star says Chyna solidified the idea that we can hang with the boys.
Since her arrival in WWE, Raquel Rodriguez has become one of the most physically intimidating female stars on the entire roster.
With her physique and overwhelming strength, Rodriguez has drawn comparisons to WWE legend Chyna.
Billed as “The Ninth Wonder of the World”, Chyna became one of the biggest stars of the Attitude Era and regularly worked with the male stars on the WWE roster during her run.
Speaking with Jessica Kleinschmidt on Short and To The Point, Raquel was asked about Chyna’s influence on her career. She answered:
“It was inspiring, it really was, because she had so many feuds with men as well. For me, she solidified that idea of ‘we can hang with the boys too.'”
“When I was watching her growing up, I was always playing basketball, and I would go and play against the boys. I think that’s helped me invaluable as well because it’s helped me up my level everything.”
“Even at the Performance Center, getting to be in a male class like Scotty 2 Hotty’s and getting to soak in all of his experience and knowledge and working with other young men who have years of experience over me and have so much knowledge, it was invaluable information and such amazing learning that I wish I could one day give to someone else.”
“It has really helped me in my career and my performance overall.”
Rhea Ripley defeated Raquel Rodriguez to retain the WWE Women’s World Championship at WWE Payback. The two women will meet in a rematch for the title on the September 11 edition of WWE Raw.
