Anthony Anzaldo, former manager of late WWE star Chyna, reveals that she rejected Vince McMahon’s offer to win the WWE Championship.
Tessa Blanchard recently made history by becoming the world champion in Impact Wrestling. She defeated Sami Callihan to become the the first woman to win a men’s championship title in professional wrestling. However, it has since emerged that former WWE star, the late Chyna had the opportunity to do so almost two decades back!
Her former manager Anthony Anzaldo recently revealed that the 9th wonder was given the opportunity to win the WWE Championship by Vince McMahon. However, Chyna rejected the offer in favor for projects outside of the promotion.

“They offered her the WWE Championship belt, but Vince said, ‘But you can’t do Playboy’ because she got offered to do Playboy,” Anthony Anzaldo told WrestlingInc. “She chose Playboy over the belt.”
“Vince says, ‘If you do Playboy, you don’t get the belt.’ She said f–k the belt. I’m doing Playboy. Highest selling out of the box Playboy, first week Playboy, in the history of Playboy, more than Kim Kardashian. It’s top three of all time behind Kardashian and Marilyn Monroe.”
Chyna modelled for Playboy twice. Once in 2000 and another in 2002.
Chyna never won the WWE Championship. However, she did win the Intercontinental Championship twice. She was finally inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame last year. Although, it came as part of D-Generation X.
