The rise and fall of former WWE star Chyna is highlighted in a new trailer for upcoming documentary, Wrestling with Chyna.

The clip, released Thursday to coincide with the one year anniversary of her death, features moments from throughout Chyna's time in the WWE along with interviews with fellow wrestlers Mick Foley and X-Pac.

 "Chyna shattered everybody's perception of what a female was capable of," Foley says. "She made people believe in themselves."
The trailer also includes interviews with Chyna filmed during her final months as the documentary chronicles her battle with drug abuse.

"I'm Chyna, I'm a champion," she declares emotionally. "I went from a billion dollar commodity to on the street."

Director Erik Angra, when speaking with E! News, noted how emotional the film was, stating, "The whole documentary is one big emotional moment. It's very, very intense."

"[You'll see] her struggles with her personal demons, her emotions, and obviously as we found out some of her substance abuse issues...I think the documentary going to show the entire rainbow of emotion a human being can go through, so it is quite emotional," he continued.

Wrestling with Chyna has no set release date. Chyna died at the age of 45 from a mixture of alcohol and prescription drugs.
