Teal Piper recalls Chyna being very close with her father.
Speaking with Nick Hausman on the Wrestling Inc. Daily, Piper shared that Chyna and Roddy Piper were very close and that he had reached out to her a lot in the latter years of his life. Teal also called Chyna a beautiful soul and says that she made a point of being at his funeral and making sure that their family knew they had her full support.
"We've obviously known her for a while, my dad and her were very close," Piper said. "He reached out to her a lot, especially in later years. When my dad passed, we had this funeral out in Oregon out in the middle of nowhere. Like, you really had to want to get there. She was one of the people who made sure she showed up. She was always super supportive and super loving with me and my siblings. She was just one of the most kind-hearted people I think I've ever met. And although I didn't get a huge chance to meet her, or know her rather, because I had really met her later in her life, my take of her was that she was just a beautiful soul.
The biggest story I really have about her is when I talked to her at my father's funeral. I think she gave me the biggest, longest hug of my entire life. Like she just wouldn't let go, and she wanted me to feel supported, and loved and was sharing all these sweet, deep thoughts about my dad. At that time, it meant a lot to me because I could tell how much she cared."
Piper currently works for Atomic Revolutionary Wrestling. Her fiance, Michael Deimos, who also wrestles for the promotion, proposed to her in the ring at the last ARW show.
