As it’s often the case whenever a current or former wrestler passes away, mainstream media websites cover the news and the passing of the woman known as the 9th wonder of the world was no different.
CNN, FOX News, ABC News, ESPN, CBS News, Entertainment Weekly, The Huffington Post, Yahoo! Sports, Deadline, New York Post, Us Weekly, Mashable, The Hollywood Reporter and scores of other newspapers and online outlets were joined by International publications and news outlets such as BBC, The Guardian, The Independent, India Times, Daily Mail. Sky News, ITV News in covering the death of Joanie Laurer.
Those which covered the story gave a small background of her wrestling career and her adult film one as well, a career which somewhat tarnished her reputation and seems to be the number one reason why she has not been inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame.
