WWE Says They Will No Longer Pay For Sunny’s Rehab

Earlier this week a video was released of WWE Hall of Famer Sunny talking about her recent stints in jail and rehab. Sunny had some negative things to say about WWE, despite the fact that they sent her to an expensive drug rehabilitation facility.

Sunny accused WWE of sending her to a nice facility simply because Linda McMahon was running for Senate at the time – and then sending her to a rundown dump facility as soon as Linda’s Senate campaign was over. She was particularly upset because the company kept sending Scott Hall to expensive, high-end rehab facilities. She says that when she brought this to their attention, they told her, “You’re not Scott Hall.”

WWE issued a statement to CagesideSeats.com this week and have now publicly stated that they will no longer fund rehab for Sunny. Here is their statement:

“As part of the Former Talent Rehabilitation Program, WWE has sent Ms. Sytch to rehabilitation numerous times, with all costs covered by WWE. Unfortunately, Ms. Sytch has continued to make poor personal choices and is ultimately responsible for the consequences of these decisions. WWE has always provided rehabilitation at a certified treatment center; however, given Ms. Sytch’s inability to change her lifestyle and successfully complete treatment, WWE will no longer fund her rehabilitation.”

    WWE should have a 3 strikes rule for this because they must have spent millions on Scott Hall.

      Hall wasnt arrested 2 times in 24 hours though.

  • Deante320

    Well to be fair Scott Hall hasn’t been arrested for a record-setting six time in the span of eight months and we haven’t hear any bad news concerning Hall recently.

    Hi Tammy/Sunny, your mistakes ENTITLE you to NOTHING. See, the WWE put you through rehabs, and tried to help you several times, despite your self-destructiveness. At some point, you have to say, I have done all I could have done. That is what they have said.

    I can care less if your rehab cost $1k a day or $.50 a month, you are ENTITLED to NOTHING.

    AA is free. NA is free. Go to a meeting. Go to 7 a week. Help yourself, stop expecting others to do your work for you.

    God this stupid bitch reminds me of my mother, money snatching drug-whore who burns bridges when she doesn’t get her way.

    Tammy thinks her rehab was politically motivated? Deluded sense of grandeur much?

    Jesus, I don’t blame the WWE for cutting her lose, rehab isn’t supposed to be an alternative to jail, it’s supposed to be a place to clean yourself up. But ultimately, SHE has to be the one who quits drinking/drugs. WWE should not be responsible for her continuously bad decision making because she’s not really willing to sober her ass up.

    never thought she was attractive, going back i still don’t see it. she was never anything special just the only pair of tits in the whole company.
    good riddance to a p.o.s.
    scott hall is turning his life around. this bitch wants us to do it for her

      She was just a pair of boobs. I do agree. She lead us to Sable (argh) and the rest of the divas we have now. I would actually like to see some females who can wrestle in the WWE instead of the T and A show. It would be refreshing

        Chyna was more famous than both with Sable following closely behind; for a while, WWE did start bringing in wrestlers up until J. Ace decided to reboot the division.

    she had a second, third and fourth chance…some people don’t even get a second! She should be ashamed of herself.

    This was only a matter of time.

    WWE can only help somebody so much for so long… she needs to help herself… It’s a sad situation but she is clearly throwing WWE’s constant help back in their face. Can’t say I blame WWE a single bit.

    I’d say now would be the perfect time for DDP to help, but he’ll have his hands full with Scott Hall. Hopefully, WWE’s decision to cut ties with her will motivate Sunny to finally change her life, like it did for Eddie Guerrero.

    • kdog

      DDP can’t help her, she doesn’t seem to want any help. Until that day occurs, nobody can help Tammy except herself

    I think they are doing the right thing. She goes in, leaves, goes in, leaves over and over again. It is not fair to expect them to keep paying. I think TNA should pay something. It was them who was using Chris Candido and he got hurt leading to his horrible death…

  • MB

    I’m still in love, i’ll pay to help her get clean!

  • G.I.R.L.

    She needs to start taking responsibility for her own life and choices.

  • ChickaChickaJJH

    She’s looking for a payout.

    its always someone else’s fault when you turn your life into a mess

    I am not mad at WWE at all. It does not matter how much it cost,she should be grateful that they was willing to help her. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Also, why would they continue putting money out to help her when she is showing no signs of changing. Obviously, it is not working.
