WWE Hall of Famer Tammy “Sunny” Sytch, 39, is entering a drug rehabilitation center to address her longstanding issues with substance abuse.
She was admitted to an emergency room Friday night and her boyfriend, independent wrestler Damien Darling, insisted that she receive professional help. According to a press release issued by RF Video, she will enter the facility on Monday.
The influential Diva’s behavior has grown increasingly erratic since last summer when she split from her boyfriend of five years. New Jack, a former bounty hunter, claimed Sytch had asked him to kill her ex shortly after their break-up. In November, Sytch posted images online of injuries to her nose, forehead, wrist and foot when she fell down an escalator at Newark Liberty Airport. She claimed the fall stemmed from taking antibiotics for a viral infection. She has mentioned being hospitalized on her Facebook account numerous times since then, and in April, said that she suffered a concussion and a black eye after “taking a bad fall in the rain.”
Sytch has also missed multiple scheduled appearances this year, which event promoters have attributed to “personal demons” and “personal issues.” American Icon Autographs have stated that they have no intention of working with her again after she missed the WrestleReunion show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in April, marking the third time she bailed on them. She also missed three dates for two promotions in Maine that month.
