Chyna Speaks Out - Porn Industry, TNA, & Tons More
On why she chose to work with Vivid Video: "Vivid is hot you know. I didn't know anything about porn but even then I would see the calendars in the book stores and they had the billboards and the girls were plastered all over the place over Sunset Boulevard in front of the clubs and they (the females on the billboards) looked gorgeous."
On how well she has been treated since joining Vivid Video: "Beyond my expectations, I am totally psyched and I'll tell you why; I haven't felt like this since I was on top of my wrestling days right before my departure as I had just done my book and I did playboy and it was a total high of my life, I loved every day, and I woke up every to do all that (it) was tremendous. I kinda have the carpet pulled out from underneath me and It's been a long while and the problem died and I guessed I might as well be as real as I can get and I've gone through a lot of obstetrical and when this came up, I'd won my name back in 2007 after fighting for it for seven years and I hadn't do anything super big with it since I got my name back you know? I had been doing little movies here and there and a copy of reality shows but this, when this opportunity came up, I was like "Yeah", I didn't have to think twice about it. I was insecure for about two minutes and then I thought " Why on earth would you not do this?". Everything I have done in my career, I have jumped in with both feet and I've taken chances and risks and something things have worked out, something thing's haven't but I have never been afraid of judgment."
On how her TNA debut came about: "It was a surprise to me as it was to you (the internet fans) because basically I got a call from Vince Russo out of the blue and I was expecting it to be an Australian beer company and then it was Vince Russo and kinda basically overnight I was on an airplane….. So I get this call from Vince Russo and I clearly wasn't expecting that you know because basically since the time I left from WWE, I never physically spoke to anybody expect from legally… so when this phone call came I was like, "Woah" but things have been going really well for me over the past year and the last couple of years I have really moved on and I'm really healthy physically and I get this call and I was really happy to hear from Vince (Russo) and he said he was thinking about me and the angle (Jeff Jarrett vs. Kurt Angle) and would I be interested and I said "well of course" and I think he was shocked because we were friends and I really enjoyed working with him in WWF and he was like "I didn't know how you were going to respond/react" and I was like "Its not the people within the business I've had problems with, we all know the problems and the reasons why" and I was happy to hear from someone and wondered why it took so long for someone to call me. When I went there, I was really psyched to see everybody and I don't think anybody expected me to go and be that willing to jump back in so it was kinda a quick process for everybody."
On her one appearance stay in TNA: "I really didn't know what was going to happen, I basically went to go to talk to them and I didn't expect to be on TV that night but you know, the Pay Per View was right around the corner so I know that was the angle they wanted to do so I really don't know what was going on behind the scenes. I knew Vince Russo and Bruce Prichard were really in my corner like wanting to make things happen so I don't know, maybe it never surfaced as I never heard back after that but I consider it open basically."
