Wrestling Diva Admits To Crime After Sunny Sentenced

Former WWE star Missy Hyatt recently posted the following Tweet:



It comes at a time when WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch, better known to fans by her wrestling name, “Sunny,” was sentenced to 17 years in prison in a  Volusia County, Florida courtroom on Monday over a March 2022 car crash that killed a 75-year-old man.

Sytch, who was driving a 2012 Mercedes-Benz, was accused of rear-ending the victim’s 2013 Kia Sorento while he was stopped at a traffic light. Authorities from the Ormond Beach Police Department later determined that the 50-year-old had a blood alcohol content of .08 (the legal limit in Florida) or higher. After initially pleading not guilty to eight charges stemming from the incident, Sytch reached a plea agreement with prosecutors back in August.

She was ultimately sentenced to 17 out of a possible 25 years, and will also be required to serve eight years of probation following her prison sentence, in addition to having her driver’s license permanently revoked. Before the fatal crash, Sytch had been arrested on DUI charges at least six times in Pennsylvania and New Jersey between 2015 and 2019.

According to TMZ, Sytch addressed the courtroom for a few minutes during the hearing, at which point she allegedly broke down in tears during her speech and apologized for her actions. “I know my words are not enough but please know that I think about you every day,” she at one point said directly to the victim’s family.

She was said to have appeared “stoic” during her sentencing, before being led out of the courtroom by officials.
