Someone Bought This: WCW Asya signed promotional photo

WCW Asya promotional photo

The WWF had a large, athletic, tough woman named after an Asian country (Chyna).

So of course WCW decided to (I guess) one-up them by naming their wrestler “Asya”.

Because Asia is bigger because it’s the continent that contains China.

Get it? Chyna/Chyna, Asya/Asia?

Oh, that WCW was so darn clever…

The difference is that Chyna had a personality and could work a match, unlike the completely useless Asya.

    I remember absolutely nothing Asya did. I just remember laughing when I heard the name while channel surfing through Nitro. “Asya? Oh, because WWF has CHYNA. WCW loves to rip WWF off.” My exact thought at the time.

    How could they have missed the opportunity to have Perry Saturn team up with Harry Uranus…license to print money. CHA-CHING!!! CHA-CHING!!!

    Oh, the things I would do with that gal, though. Meeeeow.

    She actually looks quite sexy in that picture. Maybe they bought it because of its rarity?

  5. El Atomico says:

    She was very pretty. I brought a sign to Nitro that said “I’d Rather Be in Asya” 🙂

    Eh, I would have hit that.

  7. BaltoJim says:

    To each his own, I guess. But Asya looks like The Rock in a wig.

    Chyna had a personality?

    She could work a match alright but they still made her deliver one too many low blows for my liking. Considering she was bigger than Triple H at one point, I figure she could have gotten away more with actually wrestling and it wouldn’t have been so far fetched.

    Unlike when Sable “sable bombed” Marc Mero, now that was ridiculous.

    Chyna had a personality? hahaha. But she could work and was km ahead of that Asya rip-off nonsense.
