Chyna made a splash in the UK last month at the Scottish Wrestling Entertainment's Hell for Lycra event as she came out to a packed crowd who chanted "Hall of Fame" and "Thank you Chyna". Now Chyna is featured in UK's Courier newspaper with a review of the event.

"Home-grown grapplers from the Scottish Wrestling Entertainment (SWE) lined up alongside Chyna, Colt Cabana and the British stars from ITV’s World of Sport in the 1970s and 1980s.
Legendary Dundee wrestler George Kidd was also inducted into Scottish wrestling’s hall of fame during the showcase spectacular with a tribute from veteran grappler Len Ironside.
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star Chyna – real name Joan Marie Laurer – was special guest at SWE’s Hell for Lycra XII in front of a packed Caird Hall.
Chyna, who was known as the First Lady of Sports Entertainment, spent the day signing autographs in Perth and Dundee before appearing at the main event.
The former Playboy cover girl urged the crowd to get behind her campaign to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
A 10 man fast track ladder match was among the highlights of the bill.
Other matches included Bravehart who defeated ring announcer Chris Duke while Colt Cabana was beaten by Martyn Stallyon in a thrilling match-up.
The night also included a moving video tribute to the late Rowdy Roddy Piper.
The legendary Caird Hall venue has a rich history of wrestling dating back to heavyweight Bert Assirati topping the bill before and after the Second World War.
Former world lightweight wrestling champion George Kidd was cheered on to victory dozens of times in the Caird Hall, while Primo Carnera also grappled there.
In 1959 Dundee’s Dave Kidney beat George Allan in front of 2,000 fans to win the BWA British Featherweight Championship.
