WWE refuses to pay for Sunny’s rehab: WWE have decided to stop paying for Tammy “Sunny” Sytch’s rehab. In a statement to CageSideSeats.com WWE said: “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.” This is the first time the company have ever refused to treat a former talent. Scott Hall for example has been in and out of WWE sponsored facilities for years, to an expense much larger than Sunny’s. It’s believed the reason they really pulled the plug is because she bad mouthed them in a recent shoot interview with Kayfabe Commentaries… In the trailer above Sunny claims WWE were annoyed with the bad publicity she brought during Linda McMahon’s sensate campaign and that after McMahon lost they moved her to a much cheaper facility. It seems since Sunny is not grateful, they’ve completely washed their hands of her. ____________________________________________________________ Stars discuss wrestling being dropped from the Olympics: Several more stars have given their thoughts on the IOC voting to drop wrestling from the Olympics. Sports Illustrated spoke with the following WWE talent… Dolph Ziggler: “I’ve been getting texts all day from my buddies, guys I haven’t talked to since high school sending me texts and Facebook messages. It’s hitting close to home more than usual. I know it’s not 100 percent yet but there are so many Olympic events, it’s unfortunate they’ve chosen a legitimate sport and one of the original sports ever. It’s mind-blowing that it’s even on the chopping block.” Jack Swagger: “More of an ‘Are you kidding me?’ type of reaction. I’m so disgusted by it. I’m fired up. It’s no secret I wasn’t the most athletic kid on the playground, but I went into it head over heels even though I wasn’t good at it at first. It teaches you so much about life and that’s what makes it the best sport. It teaches you discipline and dedication and how to work hard and how to sacrifice for your goals. Those are things you can apply to any area of your life, whether it’s your education or your career. Honestly, it turned me into a man.” Cody Rhodes: “[It's] extremely disappointing, but I honestly cannot see them going forward with that. I’m very disappointed with the fact that they’re even considering it. This is freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling. This has a rich tradition in the Olympics. I don’t even want to disparage some of the sports that they’re keeping, you just don’t do away with wrestling.” Speaking of the Olympics, WWE are in talks with Jaime Espinal, who won a silver medal at 185 pounds in 2012, for Puerto Rico. The amateur star is deciding between a pro career or MMA. ____________________________________________________________ Michelle McCool discusses her former colleagues: Former WWE Diva Michelle McCool gave some thoughts on several other former Divas in an interview for her MichelleMcCool.net website… McCool discusses The Bella Twins, Kharma, Jillian Hall, Trish and others. ____________________________________________________________ El Generico arrives at NXT: Indy star El Generico made his WWE NXT debut at Wednesday’s live event in Orlando, Florida. At this point he is still playing the El Generico gimmick and it looks like he’ll be one of the few superstars to keep their non-WWE name. Although he didn’t wrestle, Generico accompanied Brodus Clay in a match against Conor O’Brian, and danced with Brodus after the bout.
