Toronto Sun WWF contest winner Jamie Lewis, 13, of Etobicoke, had known for a couple of days he was going to a meet and greet.
But it wasn’t until the last minute that he knew who he was going to meet. Hunter Hearst-Helmsley and Chyna.
“Hunter’s extremely huge,” said Lewis to SLAM! Wrestling after the backstage meet and greet before Saturday’s SkyDome show. “He’s a monster.”
As for Chyna, Lewis said “she’s very nice,” and “she’s beautiful.”
Both HHH and Chyna took the meet and greet in stride.
“It’s all part of appreciation for your fans,” explained Chyna, wearing a white tube top, pink lipstick, and killer pink nail tips. “I always find it interesting what people ask us … There’s not a lot we haven’t heard. To tell you the truth, a lot of it is usually the same.”
However, when Lewis asked HHH if he and Chyna were actually a couple outside the ring, HHH skillfully deflected the question to Chyna, who then conveniently ignored the question. (The buzz is that they are.)
Chyna was also asked what she eats for breakfast.
“Actually, you’d be surprised by what I eat,” she said. “I eat a lot, and I eat as much as I can all day. I have to maintain my weight.” That includes protein shakes, “a huge bag of supplements,” vitamins and orange juice.
“We just eat as much as we can, which is a job in itself.”
The group of friends that Lewis brought along to the show seemed definitely more interested in Chyna than HHH.
At the end of the meet and greet, SLAM! Wrestling cornered HHH and asked him whether a ladder match at SummerSlam between him and Rocky Maivia is in the works.
“You’re asking the wrong guy. I don’t make the matches, I just go in there and wrestle,” said Helmsley.
“If Rocky Maivia wants to put the title up, I’ll take the match however I can. If it’s a ladder match, I’ll do it in a ladder match. If it’s in cage, I’ll do it in a cage. Whatever he wants to do. If he wants to put that belt on the line against me at SummerSlam, which he’s going to have to do, doesn’t matter what kind of match they make, I’m going to be the new Intercontinental champion come SummerSlam.”
