10. Before the WWE: Belly Dancer to Flight Attendant

Long before she became a household name, Chyna struggled to find a career that she was deeply passionate about. After her return to North America, the 9th Wonder of the World took a job as a cocktail waitress in a strip club. She would also join a band as the lead singer and work on a chat hotline.
