According to the official Facebook page of Big Time Wrestling, Tammy "Sunny" Sytch no-showed the promotion's shows in Maine several weeks ago. She also no-showed Live Pro Wrestling on Thursday after the promotion paid for her flight and half of her appearance fee. She was replaced by fellow WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas on all three shows.
"Thanks to all the fans who joined us in Saco and Presque Isle! We are very sorry that Tammy Sytch's personal demons prevented her from showing up to the towns. Mr. USA Tony Atlas was a class act as a replacement! We'll see you all again soon!" the promotion stated Sunday afternoon in a message that was deleted hours later.
Sytch has no-showed several advertised appearances in the past year including four other bookings since March. She was recently scheduled to appear for American Icon Autographs at WrestleReunion in Toronto, Ontario but "personal issues" prevented her from appearing at the event. American Icon Autographs stated they have no intention on working with her again after having bailed on the organization a third time.
The WWE Hall of Famer has been battling health problems in recent months; she has stated multiple times on her personal Facebook page being sick and/or hospitalized. Sytch recently claimed via Facebook that she suffered a concussion and a black eye after "taking a bad fall in the rain."
Here is a story we reported on April 12, 2012:
WrestleReunion announced Thursday that Tammy "Sunny" Sytch's scheduled appearance as a vendor guest for American Icon Autographs at this weekend's convention in Toronto, Ontario, Canada has been canceled.
"Feel free to ask them why in person if you need specific details," WrestleReunion states. "However, as we noted, she also no showed two different promoters in Miami two weeks ago."
American Icon Autographs representative Zach Benson stated via e-mail that Sytch is currently dealing with "personal issues," which is preventing her from appearing at the event. Following her third cancellation, they have no intention on working with her again.
"The truth is, we are also losing quite a bit of money over her cancellation, not to mention how disappointed our company is as well. Sunny has cancelled on us twice now, and we have no intention of giving her another opportunity at this point," Benson stated. "She seems to be having "personal issues", and for whatever reason she is unable to attend. Cancellations are one of the few pitfalls of this business when you have to rely on celebrities. This late in the game we are unable to replace her with another guest, because we had no warning that she might not attend. It just isn't cool no matter how you look at it."
Highspots.com representative Michael Bochicchio claims Sytch is currently battling drug addiction. He stated via e-mail: "Sunny was a vendor guest, so there is no replacement (on our end) since we weren't the ones to bring her in. She likely couldn't get through the border because of her recent record and had an attorney working on the issue until recently. She is also battling drug addiction and was making it very difficult on the vendor. She missed 3 appearances this month already, so I cannot say I"m shocked that she is not attending this convention either."
The WWE Hall of Famer has been battling health problems in recent months; she has stated multiple times on her personal Facebook page being hospitalized. Sytch was hospitalized as recently as two weeks ago, which caused her to miss her scheduled appearance for NWA Ring Warriors.
Here is an article we posted back on December 21st, 2011 detailing Sunny's major personal issues these days:
Former WWE Diva Tammy "Sunny" Sytch says she is healing slowly after she claimed she fell down an escalator last month at Newark Liberty Airport, which resulted in a broken nose and cuts to her forehead, wrist and foot. The WWE Hall of Famer stated last week on Facebook that she has been suffering from dizziness not to mention that she acquired a viral infection due to not being given antibiotics while hospitalized. She was sedated Monday to have her teeth fixed and said Tuesday she broke her nose again, albeit due to clumsiness. That's interesting to say the least considering what has been reported in recent months.
We reported several months ago that Sytch was advertised to appear at a Legends of the Ring event at the Crowne Plaza in Monroe, New Jersey, but no-showed. That marked the second consecutive weekend where she missed scheduled bookings after arriving to them.
She was spotted highly intoxicated at the hotel's sports bar the night before and needed assistance returning to her room since she was unable to walk on her own. She spent the rest of the weekend in her hotel room before returning home.
Sytch wrote of her whereabouts on Facebook, "sorry i havent posted.....been very sick....."
Sytch also appeared in no condition to perform at Northeast Wrestling's Brass City Brawl II event on September 30, 2011 in Waterbury, Connecticut and was scratched from the show as a result. According to a source, a referee drove her back to her hotel and she wouldn't leave her room the following day. She was then escorted off the premises by law enforcement. She missed a show she booked to appear on that day in Poughkeepsie, New York.
Sytch wrote "detoxing is not fun" two days later on her Facebook account. She then revealed that she's depressed.
"I want to thank everyone who stood behind me and sent well wishes during this hard time," she wrote. "Im sorry I havent responded... (Continues on next page)
