Recently on the Stone Cold Podcast Sean Waltman appeared and talked about Joanie ‘Chyna’ Laurer. The topics that were discussed included Sean’s romantic relationship with Chyna and how it began, the infamous sex tape, and whether he’d like to see Chyna in the WWE’s Hall of Fame. According to Waltman, he and Chyna hooked up when he was coming off of a break up. It seems Triple H had some words of caution to give Sean as he had personal firsthand experiences dealing with Chyna.
I had a breakup right before I saw her, so I was kind of down. I was really kind of the ‘boohoo’, that ‘woe is me’ s–t. And she was there to scoop me up. Things just happened, man. I don’t even know how to explain it, but I just remember Hunter texting me, like, ‘hey man, hey kid, what kind of psycho s–t are you getting yourself into now?’ Yeah, it wasn’t like he was mad or ‘hey, what are you doing?’ He was just worried about me. Yeah, well, he had his experiences with her that I don’t want to get too much into. But he was just going by what his experiences were. I’ll leave it at that
As far as how the sex tape scandal idea came up, Sean claimed a friend of theirs gave them the idea to do it when the sex tape involving Paris Hilton came out. Sean says he is not ashamed of anything in life, but that he certainly wishes it’d never have had happened.
“My best recollection, we were living in Beverly Hills [California] over here off of Beverly Glen [Boulevard] and Wilshire [Boulevard] in one of Donald Sterling’s buildings. One of the people that worked there was always coming up and hanging out and it was a female security guard. I think she floated the idea about [making a sex tape] because of the Paris Hilton thing. And it just kind of built from there and she was down for it. And I was in, at that point, ‘okay, I’ll do whatever’, whatever made her happy. It was both of our [idea]. I would never blame anything on her.” X-Pac added, “I felt like dog s–t, Steve. My kids, man, my family. Not at all [proud of it], man. I try not to be ashamed of things because shame is not a good f–king thing to have. Right, but it is okay to not feel good about s–t you did in the past. And I can’t, obviously, it goes without saying that we can’t change it, man. But, man, I really wish that wouldn’t have happened. And it hurt her, man. Even though we both were in on it, like, the artwork on the cover of the DVD was so humiliating for her and the s–t that was written on it. So I get it, man. And really, that was one of the things that led to the downward spiral and she’s dead now, man.”
