Tammy “Sunny” Sytch, Pro Wrestling Hall of Famer turned adult entertainment star, spent a night in jail after threatening to kill an “intimate partner” with a pair of scissors on the Jersey Shore , authorities said.
Tamara Lynn Sytch, 49, ‘appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol’ when she held the scissors up and threatened to kill the unidentified man early Thursday in Keansburg, a complaint claims filed in Freehold Superior Court.
He was not injured, he said.
The Matawan native was incarcerated at Monmouth County Correctional Facility, also in Freehold, for terrorism threats and weapons possession, records show.
A judge released her early Friday evening with conditions that include weekly checks with the court and a ban on having weapons.
The first woman to become a professional wrestling celebrity, Sytch competed in the World Wrestling Federation from 1995 to 1998 – and was reportedly the internet’s most downloaded figure in pop culture in 1996.
She went on to become a manager and ring announcer, was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame (2011) and found work at an adult entertainment site.
Sytch has had several run-ins with the law in recent years, including no less than six DUI arrests in four years, some in Pennsylvania and one in Seaside Heights, records show.
She followed that with back-to-back arrests in July 2020 by Middletown police for assault, breaching a domestic violence restraining order, evading officers in a chase that ended in an accident, and driving with a license suspended for the second time.
