Chyna’s brain will be donated to science once all the paperwork has been filed and the medical examiner releases her body. This was revealed by Anthony Anzaldo, her former manager and the one who made the discovery of her dead body.
Anzaldo also revealed that Chyna was approached by lawyers to join the concussion class action lawsuit against WWE but she didn’t want to be a part of it but she was “intrigued” by the science.
“We want to donate her brain. We want to know what made Chyna tick,” he told the New York Daily News. Famous forensic pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu called Anzaldo after the news came out that she passed away and asked to have her brain. Dr. Omalu is credited with finding chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) after examining several professional athletes.
“My hope is that we can do it. I’m in the process of getting the permission to speak on behalf of family to tell the coroner it’s okay to release it,” Anzaldo said, adding that they’re still not interested in the lawsuit but hopes researchers can give them more news about what happened.
Her manager said that Chyna did not suffer from concussions while working for WWE but her life story, including a history with domestic violence, makes her an interesting candidate nonetheless.
