The Big News

Tammy Lynn Sytch, known better to WWE fans as Sunny, is joining the WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2011.

38-year old Sytch has been involved in wrestling for close to two decades, and was a mainstay in the WWF between 1995 and 1998 – along with Rena “Sable” Mero and Terri “Marlena” Runnels she ushered in the era of the female valets, which then evolved into the WWF/E Divas.

Sytch started in Smoky Mountain Wrestling in 1992 with her then-boyfriend Chris Candido, debuting as Hillary Clinton-idolising heel Tammy Fytch in 1993. She managed Brian Lee to the Heavyweight Title and then represented Candido before the couple jumped ship to the WWF in 1995.

She was teamed up with Candido to form the Body Donnas – a pair of fitness gurus who vowed to get everyone into shape and take care of the “out-of-shape opponents” put in front of Candido (now known as Skip). However, it was Sunny’s promos and manager character that saw her receive the lion’s share of the attention, so when Skip’s star started to fall, Sunny was turned into the “Manager of Champions”, being the only person to guide three consecutive pairs of Tag Team Champions – the Body Donnas (now with Zip partnering Skip), the Godwinns and the Smoking Gunns. Sunny also managed the Legion of Doom in 1998, but by then, she was trying the patience of WWF brass due to no shows and a reported abuse of painkillers and was released in July of that year.

“The true definition of madness is repeating the same action, over and over, hoping for a different result.”

Without even the slightest hint of irony, Jeff Jarrett used that quote from Albert Einstein on his Twitter. For anyone who may not understand the hilarity based on current events, let’s go back in time:

Last October, Jersey Shore star J-Woww did a one-shot deal for TNA which actually clashed with a new Jersey Shore episode when it was aired, garnered little media attention and cost thousands of dollars. Having not learned their lesson, TMZ reported this last Thursday:

“Former Jersey Shore castmate Angelina Pivarnick is officially returning to TV next month … but there’s also good news — she’ll be in a wrestling ring! So… she could catch a beating and stuff. Sources close to Angelina tells us after a month of negotiations she finally signed a contract with TNA Wrestling earlier this week.
 We’re told the “Staten Island Dump” will make her debut in a tag team match involving TNA’s Snooki-a-like… Cookie.”

Removing the element of surprise about her two week appearance, TNA even described that Pivarnick will call out J-Woww on this week’s live episode of Impact for a fight. At least we know what we’ll be missing while we fast-forward it. (more…)


TNA in “really doesn’t get it” shocker


Not content with throwing money down the drain paying for Jersey Shore star J-Woww last October (which garnered little real mainstream media attention and didn’t do a thing for those precious ratings), TNA has announced that it has signed up another Shore star for a two show deal – one that has an even smaller profile than the main motley crew.
