Women were utilized primarily as valets or ring announcers in professional wrestling in the 90s. Sunny and Sable are doubtless the reasons why Paige, Sasha Banks or Becky Lynch are currently enjoying the airtime and expanded roles that WWE have come forward to offer their female wrestlers.
Sunny – real name Tamara Lynn Sytch – stepped foot onto the squared circle at a tender age of 20 when she signed up with Smoky Mountain Wrestling in 1992, alongside her life-long partner in Chris Candido. In the 24-year wrestling career (and counting), she has earned two Slammy Awards (in Best Buns, and Minds Behind the Mayhem categories in 1996) and one WWE Hall of Fame nomination, thereby establishing herself as a legend in the industry.
Trish Stratus and Lita have all overcome the potential demons of the wrestling industry and currently lead normal lives, with the former looking after her three-year-old son named Maximus while the latter works as a producer at WWE. However, things have not worked even remotely well for Sunny.
Sunny has suffered massive downfalls akin to most successful female wrestlers though the trajectory of her life has dragged her to the rock bottom that most wrestlers, let alone divas, can endure. Courtesy of her battles with drug addiction and numerous tumultuous relationships, she now epitomizes the damage money and fame could inflict.
Currently showing signs of mental disorders such as borderline personality disorder, Sunny resorts to TMZ more than she reaches out to her friends – let us hope she has made some friends in her illustrious career – during times of hardships and finds her life crammed with controversies.
Sunny has gone through and been embroiled in myriad of wonderful, nasty and strange incidents, but TheSportster jots down only the top fifteen unbelievable things wrestling fans should know about the 43-year-old former dream girl.
15 She is the First Diva of WWE
14 She Idolized Hillary Clinton
13 She Wrestled Her First WWE Match in 2009
12 She lies on Twitter for fun
11 She was in a Bizarre Relationship with Chris Candido
Chris Candido, her lifelong boyfriend (!), introduced her to the world of professional wrestling, and the couple worked together at World Championship Wrestling and Extreme Championship Wrestling, besides WWE and SMW. However, she cheated on him with a multitude of wrestlers, including the members of the Kliq.
10 She was in a Relationship with Shawn Michaels
9 HBK Accused her of Infidelity
8 She Claimed to Date Davey Boy Smith
After breaking up with HBK, she started dating the British Bulldog – let me remind you about the poor Candido again – briefly. Even though she admitted her affair with Davey Boy Smith explicitly, Candido kept his faith in her. Sunny claimed it was an on and off again relationship with Bulldog.
7 She made Damien Darling Cry
6 She has been Arrested Six Times
5 She's followed in Chyna's Footsteps
4 She did Erotic Skype sessions with Fans
3 She Literally Ate Excrement
2 She performed 'favors' for Soma
1 She tried Auctioning her Hall of Fame Ring
The entire Divas division inducted her into WWE Hall of Fame in 2011, but Sunny does not seem to be having the same regard as the likes of Ric Flair have for the prestigious ring. She tried to sell her Hall of Fame ring for as little as $3,000. She even told TMZ that it was time to let go of the past and added that selling her ring was the right way to get back on track. The auction was eventually pulled from Ebay when Sunny got the offer she did from Vivid.
