The apartment where Chyna died

This is the apartment building where professional wrestler Chyna died from an accidental drug overdose.

It is located at 916 Esplanade in Redondo Beach, California.

Chyna, whose real name was Joan Marie Laurer, was best known for her career in the World Wrestling Federation between 1997 and 2001.

During her time in the WWF (now the WWE), she co-founded the popular stable "D-Generation X" with Triple H and Shawn Michaels. She also became the first and only female wrestler to win the Intercontinental Championship.

On April 20th, 2016, Laurer's body was discovered at this apartment building in Redondo Beach during a welfare check. A subsequent autopsy report revealed that the former wrestling star had died from an accidental overdose of alcohol and prescription medication.

The welfare check was carried out after Chyna's manager, Anthony Anzaldo, noticed that she had been unusually quiet on social media.

Her last activity on Twitter was at 10.42 a.m. on April 18th. On that date, the 46-year-old posted a fitness-motivational tweet. She also replied to a fan and told them that she was doing yoga and cycling instead of lifting weights.

Three years after her death, Laurer was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2019 as part of "D-Generation X." However, she has yet to be inducted as a solo wrestler.

The police reportedly arrested Chyna in November 2015 after she was found drunk and unconscious outside her apartment building in Redondo Beach. The arrest was made after officers determined that she was too intoxicated to take care of herself.

Over the years, the former WWF star battled alcoholism and drug addiction. Her manager said that she had recently become addicted to sleeping pills and anxiety medication.

On the morning of April 17th, Laurer uploaded her final YouTube video, which was titled "Wake Up! ❤️". During the video, she seemed lethargic and repeatedly slurred her words. It also appeared as though she had a black eye.

Her final words to her fans were, "Love y'all. Peace!"
