Tammy Sytch's never-ending legal woes and her stint in porn industry, continue to make headlines despite her retirement from wrestling
If you watched WWE during the 90s, then you would have certainly seen Tammy Sytch aka Sunny in the ring. The blonde beauty was at the peak of her career and fame in the 90s. She was a fan-favorite and also the most downloaded celebrity on AOL in 1996.
Tammy Sytch was born in New Jersey. She met her future husband Chris Candido in her schooldays and he introduced her into the world of wrestling. She made her debut in WWE in 1995 through Vince McMahon’s company. She stayed with the company for three years, before joining the rival group ECW. Candido and she left ECW amidst rumors of her substance abuse and addiction.
Following Candido’s death, Sytch began appearing on the independent circuit and was inducted into WWE’s Hall of Fame in April 2011. Following her retirement from the wrestling world, she turned to the porn industry. She began offering regular webcam sessions on Skype and even starred in an adult film ‘Sunny Side Up: In Through the Backdoor’.
Sytch constantly made headlines due to her trouble with the law. It all began in 2012 when she was arrested five times in a span of four weeks. She was charged with disorderly conduct, third-degree burglary and three counts of violating a protective order. She landed in the prison for the sixth time, for violating a protective order in 2013. She was released in May 2013, but that was far from the end of her long legal troubles.
She would be arrested multiple times in 2015 for drinking and driving. When she was finally released from prison, she violated her probation, which sent her straight back to prison once again. She was recently released in February 2020 under parole.
Since her release, the star once again managed to make headlines. This time around it was for her racist comments he made in the past on her social media posts. According to The Sun, the former pro wrestler was called out by a Twitter user for stating in one of her interviews that she isn’t attracted to black men. She responded to the tweet with, “I'm not racist. Just because I'm not physically or sexually attracted to black people doesn't make me racist. I’m not attracted to Asians too.”
