Former WWE star Tammy Sytch arrested for domestic violence 3 times this week
Cageside Seats - over 4 years
Unfortunately, the odds of drug rehabilitation leading to someone cleaning their act up for good are pretty slim. There's sadly plenty of examples of this within the pro wrestling business, most notably Scott Hall, Jake "The Snake" Roberts and Chyna. You can certainly add former WWE / WCW / ECW / ROH star Tammy Sytch to that all too long list, who has had substance abuse problems off and on dating back to the tail end of her WWF run as Sunny, the manager of LOD 2000, in the spring of 1998. Drugs completely derailed her career, as they caused her to get fired from all three major U.S. promotions in a period of just over two years. Outside of a handful of appearances for ROH and WWE during periods when she had her personal problems under control, she's largely spent the last 12 years working on the independent circuit. Unfortunately, Sytch may now be in her worst shape for close to a decade. Her current boyfriend, independent wrestler Damien Darling, convinced her to e ...

Extreme Archive: ECW Television Episode 015
Inside Pulse- Wrestling - almost 5 years

Well, I will not be in attendance, and here’s why: As we all know, the real ECW ended it’s run in 2001. In the following years, I was unable to find a wrestling replacement for that federation that I loved so much 1. In those years, I sat there, and wished that I could go back in time, just once, to feel what I used to feel… if only one more time. Well, in 2005 I got that opportunity. I happily dropped $100 to see the first Hardcore Homecoming show with my buddy Michael 2, who had gone to a few ECW events with me. I watched the show. I cheered, laughed, and shouted my ass off. And as all of us in the ECW Arena that night sang “Enter Sandman” during The Sandman’s entrance, I thanked the wrestling gods for letting me step back in time one more time. The card was average at best, but was pure nostalgia, and I loved every min ...

When the duo returned, Candido re-aligned with Shane Douglas' Triple Threat, and Sytch began a feud with Douglas's manager Francine. The feud was cut short when Sytch was arrested after violating a restraining order filed by her mother.

Sytch was rushed to the hospital in 2001 after her appendix burst, which required time off from wrestling to heal. By 2007, she was once again in school, studying Medical Technology.
