He said that lawyers reached out to him long before Chyna’s death Wednesday to test her interest in joining a brain injury lawsuit against the WWE, reported the New York Daily News.

Former professional wrestler and reality television personality Chyna was found dead in her Los Angeles-area home on Wednesday, police said. She was 45 years old.

They did not want any part in litigation but were intrigued by the science, he said.

“When she died, they called me again and asked, ‘Can we have her brain,’“ Anzaldo said.

“My hope is that we can do it. I’m in the process of getting the permission to speak on behalf of family to tell the coroner it’s okay to release it.”

He identified the doctor involved as Dr Bennet Omalu, the famed forensic pathologist who discovered chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) by examining professional football players.
