Sunny Cancels Weekend Appearance, Battling Drug Addiction
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 promotors 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 dissapointed 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.
