Chyna made her TNA debut at the May 3, 2011 iMPACT! taping as she was introduced by Spike TV network consultant Mick Foley. "The Hardcore Legend" introduced Chyna as Kurt Angle's business associate and tag team partner at Sacrifice, where they would face Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett. During the taping she also participated in a battle royal, during which she eliminated Jeff. The former WWE Women's Champion explains how the partnership came out about.
Her stint with TNA lasted only two dates; she has not appeared for the organization since Sacrifice.
"What happened after Sacrifice was [TNA's] choice: I did the pay-per-view, I went home, and then I never heard from them again," she says.
During the June 6 episode of the Monday Night Mayhem podcast, Eric Bischoff said he was unhappy with TNA's decision to use Chyna at Sacrifice, adding that she had a "deer-in-the-headlights look" upon entering the ring. She was asked for comment on his remarks.
"I don't have any reaction to him. I'm living my life, and I'm happy with it. My life does not even pertain to him. I don't understand that sort of hatred."
The relationship between Triple H, her former real-life boyfriend, and Stephanie McMahon (with whom Chyna claims he had an affair and then left her for), was a major factor in her departure from WWE in 2001. She left the promotion on November 30, 2001, several months after she had been removed from television. Jim Ross later claimed that she was not fired, but rather chose to leave for personal reasons. Chyna, however, says otherwise.

"It was horrible, it really was."
Calum Waddell, who conducted the interview, noted that she altered her physical appearance during her time with WWE, specifically her face. She responds, "I just wanted to have [the surgery]... My reasons are personal. It was all my decision."

"The thing I love about Vivid is that I have not had to sign my life away to work with them," she says. "They are the number one company in the world, and are really pushing for me to be successful in any way I can, and I like that."
