Watch an upbeat and optimistic Chyna in this recent interview with CBS Detroit

Famed female wrestler Chyna seemed focused on the future before her death Wednesday, if this on-camera interview with CBS Detroit's 97.1 The Ticket.

Chyna stopped by the studio during a visit to Detroit for a series of appearances at area strip clubs and offered interviewer Evan Jankens a candid, friendly discussion that turned out to be possibly one of her last interviews before her death.

During the free-wheeling and candid chat, Chyna discussed how women in professional wrestling have changed, the ongoing plans for a documentary about her, "The Reconstruction of Chyna" and her plans to appear at the Motor City Comic Con in May.

"I don't think that there will ever be another Chyna. I don't think that that will happen again," she said. "Just because you're big and you have a big physique doesn't mean that you know how to wrestle or that you have showmanship."

Chyna also took time to discuss her legacy in the world of wrestling and the controversy over her lack of inclusion in the WWE Hall of Fame. "I'm not looking to bash anybody," she said. "I am 45 years old right now. I don't want to live the rest of my life rehashing what, quite frankly, is yawns-ville. I'm moving on. There's a man in my life now, I'm feeling happy, I have a great place."

I feel like I would be doing a disservice to myself and to the fans if I didn't at least try and get my voice heard," she clarified. "And then if there's resolution, wonderful. That's what I would love. But if there's not resolution, hey I tried."

She even took time out of the interview to get down on the floor and give Jankens a quick yoga lesson, teaching him a personal mantra as well. "I will never quit, because I'm beautiful and I'm worth it."
