WWE Hall of Famer Tammy ‘Sunny’ Sytch Hospitalized
Sad news for a WWE Hall of Famer: Tammy “Sunny” Sytch has been hospitalized with unknown medical issues.
Apparently, it all started last Monday, when an ambulance was called to Sytch’s home. She was taken to the hospital, and a series of tests were performed. However, as Sytch would later note in a social media post on Friday, the doctors don’t really know what’s wrong with her, specifically. It’s theorized it could be related to complications that left her hospitalized earlier this year, as Sytch has had a history of medical problems in recent years. From her Facebook post:
So many times I have done things to help others… Given away money, began Go Fund Me pages for friends (some of whom even have husbands who are working. ) All out the goodness of my heart. Well, now it’s time Karma comes back to me for a change. I have been in the hospital since Monday afternoon and we’re not quite sure what’s wrong yet. I had a cyst on my pancreas that was 1.5 cm in March, and they said if it got bigger it would need to drained, removed or have a stint put in. Well now it’s 3 cm. double the size. Also my gall bladder may need to come out. I’ve been in constant abdominal pain for 5 days and bedridden because of it. I have had a CT Scan with contrast , an MRI with contrast , and probably getting and endoscopy with ultrasound by Monday. Lots of bills coming my way, not to mention personal bills. If someone was to be selfless enough to start a fundraising page, I would be eternally grateful. Remember, I don’t have a husband to take care of me. Thanks!
A fan did end up creating a GoFundMe page on Sytch’s behalf, but only $110 of the $10,000 goal has been reached so far. If you want to donate, you can click here.
It’s a pretty sad situation, honestly. Years of hard living during her heyday in the wrestling business has seemingly caught up with her, as it has to many of her contemporaries, some of whom are no longer with us. It certainly doesn’t help that Sytch has been plagued with legal issues, such as her three arrests last summer for DUI-related charges.
Sunny was always one of my favorites in the business, and I recall going to my first wrestling show at the Stabler Arena in Bethlehem, PA in August 1996 because The Smoking Gunns were on the card, and she was their manager at the time. Granted, she ended up not actually being on the card, but I did get to see her live in 1998 during her stint as manager for the Legion of Doom. Hopefully, she’s able to get her life back on track.
