Chyna had been prescribed sleeping and anxiety medication prior to her death, filmmaker says she was mixing them up

Anthony Anzaldo, the manager of the late Joanie “Chyna” Laurer, revealed in an interview with E! News this week that the former WWE star had been prescribed drugs prior to her sudden death. The prescription drugs, which were noted as being prescribed legally by a doctor and pharmacists, were for sleeping and anxiety issues.

Anzaldo described Chyna as being very “emotional” the last few months while she was shooting footage for a new documentary about her life. Documentary filmmaker Erick Angra told The Daily Mail that he didn’t believe Chyna was suicidal, but was aware she was using “more of her prescriptions than she should have been or mixing them up.”

WWE has posted a series of clips on YouTube this week focusing on her career.
