Jane LaQue, mother of the late WWE wrestling great Chyna, is not happy with the trailer for Wrestling With Chyna, a documentary about her life.
The director released the trailer Thursday, the one-year anniversary of Chyna's death. LaQue told Pro Wrestling Sheet that the movie was supposed to be about Chyna, whose real name was Joanie Laurer, becoming stable again after on and off battles with substance abuse but instead focuses on her downward spiral.
LaQue said some of the trailer's footage was in poor taste.
“Thursday, on the first anniversary of Joanie’s death, I was completely blindsided with the documentary trailer producers released. Not only did the director release it, and without telling me, but he put in footage at the end showing Anthony (her former manager) going into Joanie’s apartment.”
LaQue also said her daughter's death should have ended the project.
“It was supposed to be about Joanie’s life and her return to a stable situation. Then she died. Now it’s all about the morbidity of the whole thing, her spiral downward, and her eventual death. Joanie would definitely NOT want to happen what is happening. I don’t care what anyone says. I know her better than anyone, and I can say that for sure. Quite frankly, when she died, the whole thing should have been scrubbed.”
