She's Back (& They're Crazier Than Her)

TNA were promising a mystery 'partner' for Kurt Angle and they delivered a surprising result.

Surprising for all the wrong reasons.

Joanie Laurer - known to WWE fans as 'Chyna' and, last time I checked had legally changed her name to that - was introduced at the Impact TV tapings on Tuesday night.

The episode is set to air a week tonight in the US.

Chyna hasn't worked for a major pro wrestling company since 2001. She has, however, appeared in reality TV shows and at least one pornographic film.

Ever since leaving WWE, her life seems to have spiralled even more out of control. She has been featured in TMZ videos in 'no condition' as well as reports that she had tried to take her own life by overdosing on sleeping pills.

I don't think bringing her back will help her - or the company - in any way. In fact, I am concerned that TNA would actually bring someone in with these known issues especially after everything that has happened with Jeff Hardy.

Dave Meltzer wrote it perfectly in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter:

Just what they need is another 40-year-old basket case.

I couldn't have said it any better.
