The Sad, Sordid Eyewitness Testimonies of the Relationship Between SUNNY (Tammy Sytch) and SKIP (Chris Candido)

“What Sunny Wants, Sunny Gets…”

Chris Candido (Skip) and Tammy Sytch (Sunny) during happier times

In this edition, we take a look at the relationship between Tammy Sytch (Sunny) and Chris Candido (Skip)- which you could probably guess was not pretty. Poor Chris…

WARNING: Language and content may offend. Discretion advised.


SUNNY:

“Chris Candido was my high school sweetheart.

I was going to college on a full academic scholarship, I was going to be a plastic surgeon. He got hired for Smokey Mountain in Knoxville, TN and I transferred schools down there. Within a month Jim Cornette hired me because he needed a girl on TV that no one has seen before. That 6 months lasted 2 and a half years and then I got a phone call from Bruce Prichard from the WWF and I was hired…”

CHRIS CANDIDO:

“From the very fact that at some point during our lives we say that we want to be professional wrestlers…there is obviously something mentally wrong with us…

You get all those guys and you put us together and we have to travel round together for a long period of time, who are also full of testosterone, in a ‘cosmetic’ business and stuff…different people act different ways.

And back then, you threw just one girl into the mix…there was going to inevitably be rumours said and stuff…

I mean, you’re a guy on the road – you have your wives, your girlfriends at home, there may not be a rat in town that day…you have to look at SOMEbody.

And she’s the closest thing to you…”

PAUL BEARER (aka PERCY PRINGLE):

“Chris and Tammy loved each other dearly. And that’s great. They were just young and they’d had a big break [in the business]. But what bothered me is Chris would kind of follow Tammy round like a little puppy dog…”

SUNNY (Tammy Sytch):

“In WWE I was called the ‘Kliq chick’ -and not just because I got along with the Kliq, but because I was sleeping with one of them…” (laughs)

CHRIS CANDIDO:

“The thing with Shawn [Michaels] is, he was 24 hours a day the ‘Heartbreak Kid’ – he wasn’t just a guy who played a character, he really did think it.

At first it didn’t bother me.

It’s common sense that shit’s going to be said. You couldn’t get around it. Because she was the only girl, and Shawn was the top guy…”

BAM BAM BIGELOW:

“Supposedly Shawn was, you know, hitting on Tammy…and Chris was just so much in love with this woman, it was driving him crazy.

We actually found…I won’t say a ‘suicide’ note, but you know, we found a note in Chris’ bag that was pretty heavy…and you know, Chris was depressed, man. And the depression was because of the Kliq – and they were loving it, they were thriving on it. They were like, ‘Ok, let’s see if we can make this kid kill himself’, you know? it was just terrible.

I thought Chris was very vulnerable, man. I thought he was going to hurt himself, or hurt – KILL – one of those assholes.

I tried to stop it…”

KEVIN NASH:

“I don’t remember being hard on him…probably because his girlfriend was sleeping with everyone in the territory and he was acting like he didn’t know what was going on…walking around like a dumb stooge…”

BAM BAM BIGELOW:

“Everything is strength is numbers…and [the Kliq] had the numbers.

You know, you had Diesel, you had Michaels and Helmsley – or Triple H, whatever the hell his [name is now], Scott Hall…this group of guys that were actually telling Vince McMahon what to do.

A terrible, terrible time. It hurt a lot of people.

To them it became a joke because they had control, so it was like, ‘Ok lets fuck with this guy now…ok well we got him out; now let’s go to this guy and lets ruin his life and get HIM fired, ok – now let’s go to this guy…’

And that’s what they did – just toyed with people’s emotions and livelihoods…”

JIM CORNETTE:

“I like Tammy…because I’ve recognised – and have told her this to her face many times – that she’s a cunt. And she KNOWS she’s a cunt. She’s a miserable cunt. Tammy, god bless her, she could rub people the wrong way in about two fractions of a second…”

DENNIS KNIGHT (Phineas Godwinn):

“She did a lot of lying. She could be a very evil person.

I came up with [Candido] and you know, I love the guy. I was with him less than 24 hours before he died. And that fucking Sunny…you know, Shawn and those guys would have people watch [for Chris] in the locker room while they were banging her…”

KEVIN KELLY (WWF Announcer):

“I think he had to know [what was going on]…it was always a really bizarre relationship to me…”

MARK CANTERBURY (Henry Godwinn):

“She kept the leash on him…she did what she wanted, but she was holding him back…”

SUNNY:

“Shawn and I were together for almost nine months. It was a long time. It wasn’t just two people having sex on the road…we had a relationship. Christ, I even went to Jamaica with him for a week. We kept it under wraps as best we could. A few people found out…”

PAUL BEARER (aka, Percy Pringle):

“One day in Madison Square Garden I called him out in front of all the boys.

I said, ‘Chris, come here…’

I called him around the back and said ‘This is what everyone else thinks [about the way Tammy is acting up]…’

He said, ‘But Percy, I love her…

SUNNY:

“I was the source for a lot of heat.

I was a big source of heat between Shawn and Bret. A lot of base heat between them is me. Because Shawn thought I was banging Bret…but I wasn’t. Bret and I were just really good friends. The Hart family adored me…”

CHRIS CANDIDO:

“We rode with Davey [Boy Smith] all the time. We were always together. But Davey was not even a guy who would, you know, rat around or anything either. Diana [his wife] would’ve legitimately kicked his ass. Davey didn’t fuck with anybody…”

SUNNY:

“Yeah I slept with Davey. Off and on. Davey came after Shawn…”

MARK CANTERBURY (Henry Godwinn):

“She had so much heat [backstage]…in Germany they had to send her home a week early because somebody shit in her food. I don’t know who it was…”

PAUL BEARER:

“It was Sean Waltman!

[He] decided he was going to poop in Tammy’s Chinese food. They made them in these containers…she went back to hotel [oblivious]…and she ate it.

The next day we got on the bus and of course, [somebody yells] ‘Tammy…did you like your poo-poo platter last night?'”

SUNNY:

“When we were in ECW, the locker room was like a family. Everybody was friends, you know…we’d go to Florida and after the show everybody would go out together. We’d go to a strip club or we’d go just to dinner or something like that as a group…”

RAVEN:

“Poor Chris, bless his heart. He was a such a wonderful guy, not a bad bone in his body…”

SANDMAN:

“There’s so many stories I could tell you about how she disrespected Chris.

We were on the roof of a club in Miami where she was blowing Raven [while] she just had her hand out for pills.

[I was] walking into the boiler room to go get high and fuckin’ Sabu’s in there gettin’ a blowjob from Tammy [in exchange for drugs]…he doesn’t give her the Somas ’til she’s done the blowjob.

[Another time] I walked into the bathroom and she’s blowing him and jerkin’ off Joey Matthews, I think it was…[all the while] Chris is running around the bar looking for her…”

SABU:

“No, she never blew me…but she tried. A bunch of times.

I will say this. I gave her some Soma’s to show me her tits. And she did. She wanted 50 Soma’s. But I only gave her 35…”

KEVIN KELLY:

“You, me – ALL of us would say, ‘Well if my girl dogged me out like that…’ But until you walk a mile in somebody’s shoes, man – you don’t know what you’re gonna do…”

DENNIS KNIGHT (Phineas Godwinn):

“So, the night [on RAW] that I finally ‘slopped’ Sunny, we made the slop bucket which was usually [filled to the top]…”

MARK CANTERBURY (Henry Godwinn):

“…That day the bucket was about half full…

I took it in the locker room and I said, ‘Sunny’s getting slopped tonight…don’t nobody do nothing to this…’

And I set it down, and I walked out.

When I come back, the bucket…is full.

All the boys are spittin’ their dip in there…Razor, 1-2-3 Kid, taking it to the shower…doing a little…[you know]…’spicin’ it up’.

So, [when she got ‘slopped’] she got a mixture of a little bit of everybody that night…”

Watch Sunny get slopped here!

About the Author



  • Jimmy McGill

    There are even worse stories about her from the 90s. Candido knew what she was doing, he drank & did drugs to cope with the pain. Candido is from the area where I grew up, there were always a lot of stories about Sunny’s slutty behavior.

  • Robin Aneurys

    At least she still alive. Candido… :/
