Sunny Responds To Calls For WWE Hall Of Fame Removal Following Arrest

Tammy Sytch Sunny

Numerous wrestling personalities have called for Sunny to be removed from the WWE Hall of Fame following her latest arrest, with the real-life Tammy Lynn Sytch firing back.

Although Sunny has appeared for the vast majority of mainstream North American wrestling promotions, she’s arguably best known for her troubled personal life. The WWE Hall of Famer has been arrested on numerous occasions, including being arrested five times over four weeks in 2012.

In March 2022, she was involved in a crash that saw her crash at high speed into a motionless car at a stoplight, resulting in the tragic passing of a 75-year-old man. Sunny was later arrested after it was discovered she was three-and-a-half times over the legal alcohol limit, though she’s since been released after posting the $227,500 bond.

Owing to this arrest, there are calls for Sunny to be removed from the WWE Hall of Fame. She had been inducted in 2011 for her work as a valet throughout the 1990s. Bill DeMott, specifically, is demanding she be removed, with his non-profit organisation the Keri Anne DeMott Foundation releasing a press release regarding the matter.

Sunny has since responded to the former WCW United States Heavyweight Champion, referencing his own troubled past (h/t Wrestling Inc.):

I think Bill Demott should be removed from the WWE Hall of Fame! Ohhh that’s rite, he was never inducted. He was too busy sexually harassing female talent and degrading male talent as well. Yet he is worried about a crime that has NOT even been proven in a court of law yet??”

Bill DeMott left WWE in 2015 after several stories emerged of DeMott’s misconduct while he served as a WWE Performance Center coach. This included, but was not limited to, physically assaulting trainees, using homophobic and racist slurs, and condoning sexual harassment.

It’s unknown whether or not WWE will remove Sunny from their Hall of Fame, though it wouldn’t be the first time such an event has happened. Hulk Hogan was removed from the Hall of Fame in 2015 after he made several racist remarks, although he was ultimately reinstated in 2018.
