X-Pac I Loved Chyna Til the End ... Sorry I Couldn't Save You

6/23/2016 7:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

An emotional X-Pac took the stage at Chyna's memorial Wednesday night and apologized to his ex-girlfriend for "not taking better care of you" ... while revealing he loved her until the day she died. 

"Joanie and I had a really rocky relationship," X-Pac said ... "Until the day she died, I loved her very much, I really did."

X-Pac (real name Sean Waltman) and Chyna began dating in 2003 and reportedly broke up in 2005 -- but clearly, X-Pac still cared about her. 

"I hope you forgive me for not taking better care of you ... and I'll do everything in my power to make sure you end up in the WWE Hall of Fame where you belong."

Besides X-Pac, there were several other tributes to Chyna at the memorial -- Hulk Hogan and Kurt Angle made videos, Coolio performed and Rob Van Dam gave a speech. 

Chyna was cremated and her urn was on display -- bedazzled -- because organizers believe that's what she would have wanted. 

Chyna died back in April. She was 46.

EXCLUSIVE

0527-rob-van-dam-sonya-van-dam-wife-divorce-split-TMZ-GETTY-02Rob Van Dam's wife is tapping out of their marriage -- filing divorce docs to end their 17-year union and asking the judge to restore her old name, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Sonya Szatkowski filed court docs in L.A. citing irreconcilable differences. The two married in 1998 but Sonya claims they separated back in December. They have no minor children. 

Sonya is asking for spousal support and says Rob should have to pay her attorney's fees. She's also asking the judge to restore her name from Szatkowski to Delbeck. 

We spoke with Sonya who tells us the two are still on relatively good terms -- they're still talking -- but she just decided the marriage wasn't working anymore. 

She added, "It’s a private time. It’s a hard thing for me to even talk about."

It's especially sad considering Rob and Sonya's love story was pretty well known -- Sonya often traveled with RVD during his wrestling career so she could be ringside for his matches.

Chyna Recorded Sad Final Weeks ... For Documentary Film

5/14/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

In the week before her death, Chyna recorded several videos of herself for a documentary that was supposed to be about her comeback ... instead, they show just how bad her situation really was. 

The videos show a clearly troubled and inebriated Chyna with a bloody gash and severe bruising on her right eye. 

0513_chyna_hit_tmz_wmWe spoke with film maker Rob Potylo who says Chyna insisted the wounds were from a random champagne bottle attack at a liquor store ... but he believes she was injured in a drunken fall and was too embarrassed to admit it. 

Potylo says he was extremely concerned when he saw the videos and got in touch with Chyna's attorney to discuss a plan of action to help her out.

In fact, Potylo says Chyn's team had reached out to WWE to help get her into rehab -- but they simply ran out of time. Chyna died as they were working out the details. 

Potylo says he now realizes the videos were cries for help -- and feels terrible that they weren't able to save her. 

"I love her and miss her dearly every day."

WWE's Adam Rose Faces the Judge Wife Begs For Mercy

5/12/2016 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Shackled and sporting an orange jail jumpsuit, WWE superstar Adam Rose appeared in Florida court Thursday in his domestic violence case ... where his wife begged the judge to cut the guy a break. 

Rose was arrested Wednesday morning after allegedly roughing up his wife -- and then smacking the phone away from her when she called 911. He's been charged with battery and tampering with a witness. 

The judge wanted to hit Rose with a restraining order -- barring him from contact with his wife. But shockingly, she begged the court to reconsider ... because she wants him to come home. 

During the hearing, Rose's wife said they have a special needs child who needs both parents.

Rose's lawyer also argued Rose's actions were "not aggressive or painful" but rather "more of a passionate, 'Hey, let's talk about this.'"

The judge mentioned a PREVIOUS domestic violence incident in March -- and expressed concern about a pattern of abusive behavior. But in the end, Rose's wife got her wish ... and the judge held off on the restraining order.

The judge also set a low bond -- $1,000 -- which means Rose will probably be out of custody by the end of the day. He's been ordered to see his pastor for counseling once a week until his next court date in June.

12:39 PM PT -- Rose has now been suspended indefinitely by the WWE, according to our friends at ProWrestlingSheet.

A WWE rep told the site, "WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Raymond Leppan has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest."

update_grey_gray_barWWE superstar Adam Rose got busted for domestic violence after allegedly grabbing his wife by her face during an argument.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Rose was arrested at 1:30 AM Wednesday in his Florida home. Rose grabbed Cassandra Leppan and pulled her toward him as he screamed at her, according to the report.

The docs list the reason for the argument as "marital problems."

Cassandra called 911, but according to the report Adam ripped the phone away from her -- which is why he was booked for felony tampering with a witness, as well as domestic violence.

He's being held without bail until his arraignment.

Rose's arrest comes on the heels of the WWE handing him a 60-day drug suspension.
