"Fun" With Tammy

That's odd. I don't remember having a spare TamTrolla around. Did Chris send us a spare? Or worse; is Mike calling in again? I don't want any coffee right now, thank you!

Anyway, let's see what it's sent us. Hopefully it's not more adventures in love or what have you.




Seriously. AGAIN.

Feels like I've been here before.

WWE Hall of Famer Tammy "Sunny" Sytch was arrested yesterday in New Jersey and is currently incarcerated in Monmouth County Corrections in Freehold, New Jersey.  PWInsider.com is waiting for further details on the arrest.

At the time same, PWInsider.com has learned that a bench warrant was issued for Sytch in the State of Pennsylvania on 2/15.  That same day, the Carbon County Probation Department filed a motion to revoke Sytch's October 2018 parole.  Court records indicate that Sytch made payments of $120 in the months of October and November 2018 as part of a payment plan to reimburse the State of Pennsylvania for their costs in her legal cases but has not made any additional payments since that time.

To quote Brad: Wow.

These are the times I miss John Thomas, may he rest in peace. If he was on the case she wouldn't have needed to be hauled in!

Also out of all the things she has done, THIS is the tipping point? It's very...surprising. One's thoughts go to all those posts of hers looking for companionship and wondering - but no. Such a thinking won't do at all here.

[Future Update from the 25th: Apparently it wasn't a missed payment but yet ANOTHER DWI which only makes things worse. As if they could. This is hitting rock bottom and then going even further down.] 

Sytch was extradited back to Carbon County in March 2018 from the same Monmouth County Correctional Facility she is currently jailed in.   Sytch had been arrested in New Jersey last year for failing to appear in court for two DUI arrests.   While Sytch was being processed for multiple charges of Contempt - Disobedience/resistance in New Jersey, authorities learned that she was technically a fugitive from justice because a motion had been filed in August 2017 in PA requesting her February 2017 parole from the Carbon County in Pennsylvania be revoked. A bench warrant for Sytch's arrest was issued to bring her in for a hearing over the issue, but since Sytch was not living in PA at the time, she could not be located to be served or taken into custody.  

What in the - so  she was a fugitive for a crime while serving time for ANOTHER crime? I'm not sure how that would work, but I'm no Ace Attorney. I know if I had to deal with some rather...weird things in the expansive American legal justice system, I would become more crazier than usual. And I write about a deliberately awful radio progrem as a hobby, so that should tell you something.

Also for some unexplained reason I find it funny that she couldn't be brought in because she was out of town. It's not like these police departments could coordinate between themselves to better track persons of interest rather than just buying fancy weapons and looking for any excuse to try them out. (Somebody else's) tax dollars at work!

New Jersey authorities held her until PA authorities were able to come and extradite her. It was never clear whether Sytch's legal issues in New Jersey have been resolved.

If I may make a guess - no. They have not.

The article lists the three DUI charges she accrued within a month in 2015, one of them while buying "milk and eggs". Living the gimmick even now, I see.

Her three month sentence was lenient, served in rehab instead of prison, part of it paid for by WWE.

She was released without spending a day in prison but was warned by Judge Matika that if she got into trouble at any point during her five-year probation, there would be consequences. 

Alright, so how did that go?

Just 18 days into those five years, Sytch was arrested in Northampton County, PA.

Figures. Although it just seem like only a fine was paid. This time.

 On 9/12/16, Sytch was rushed from her home in Palmerton, PA to Palmerton Hospital. That day, she was charged with possession of alcohol as well as being under the influence of alcohol - both of which violated the zero tolerance of her probation.

She brought it up to her followers (in between berating them for telling her the obvious) that it had to do with her pancreas, impacted as it was by all that drinking. A couple of weeks later she was charged again for being under the influence after being taken to that same hospital from her home, and then imprisoned for five months.

It was less than six weeks after her five-year probation began.

After her release in February 2017 things cooled down - for about six months. It was then that they tried to find her to revoke her parole but couldn't.

Amazingly, Sytch had been making independent bookings and signing appearances all over the United States prior to her NJ incarceration back in February 2018, including a signing in Philadelphia, PA in January of that year.

I swear this actually happened to be written in the article.

Another set of arrests in January and February 2018 in NJ were due to more drink related mishaps, including fleeing the scene of an accident she was involved in.

Sytch has been through several personal and legal issues over the last decade, including a period in 2012 and 2013 where she was arrested arrested five times over the span of a month after, on three separaste [sic] occasions, she violated an order of protection taken out by a former boyfriend in Connecticut.   Sytch was also charged with disorderly conduct, third degree burglary, and three counts of violating a protective order.   In that case, Sytch served 114 days in jail before being released, at which point she moved to PA.

Oh, and here's that thing about her wanting to farewell tour that she later deferred for a year.

Look. I'm not going to go on a long spiel moralizing or trying to wonder why she can't be like Jake Roberts and Scott Hall who managed to turn their lives around and stay there (though I don't know how she would handle some Yoga for Regular Gals). Or how this is the opposite arc of Joanie Laurer, who tried to pull up during her chaotic days, only to OD before it finally started to get better and she got some redemption at last (like with her recent HOF entering as part of D-X). Or how it's taken a turn from a fun to laugh at trainwreck into a more and more tragic situation, with it becoming more and more clear how it will ultimately turn out, as the inevitable is unavoidable, and we all know there is only one way this is all going to end.

I will however say this:

Life is nothing more than a series of choices. It is up to you - and only you, no matter what the situation or external factors are - to choose what course of action to knowingly and willingly take.

And if you repeatedly make the wrong choices for no good reason or intent?

Then may your higher power above have mercy on your soul.

Episode 43: The Engagement Ring: February 13, 2019

40 minutes

RD wants to seduce the four other listeners. Blade remembers Miss Elizabeth for this. You're hurting me, Bladey.

Since it's Valentine's Day RD wants to discuss favorite wrestling romances this recording (unless this involves Anakin Skywalker wrestling with sand getting everywhere)

  • Blade "of course" remembers Jamie Noble and Nidia. (:04) RD thought she was pretty and reminded him of the hillbillies back home.
  • The Tough Enough people have all seem to have vanished into the Void. (:06) As an example, forget someone like Jackie Gayda leaving the business to be a mother; I cannot find Linda Miles ANYWHERE online, save for this brief post...that doesn't even load the text properly. You need an archived version for that. You know a gimmick is bad when it forces you off the Internet almost completely. To give you a sense of how damaging such a thing must be, with a little snooping around you can find Claire Lynch's 'actress' still with an online presence, albeit wisely having removed all reference that she ever played such an...award winning character. Goodness, how reputation damaging must a gimmick be to be worse than that??? (Though to be fair, at least Ms. Former Shaniqua is fine where things are now, and I cannot argue with that.)
  • RD thought Blade grew up in a horror movie. Aren't Troma movies horror movies in their own right? Blade liked the "romantic" Sullivans. (:07)
  • Building on that, RD liked the "original Precious" Patty with Jimmy Garvin feuding with Kevin Sullivan for her. If the feud had continued it would have been revealed that she would have just been Kevin's sister. (Unless he thought he was Luke Skywalker or something.)
  • RD liked the hilarity of someone like David Flair being involved with Daffney and Stacey Keibler. As unlucky with women as he is with wrestling!
  • Blade remembers Rick Steiner with "nerd" Robin Green. (:13) She would later be made over by Missy Hyatt and becoming too much even by her standards. Blade does his Jim Ross assisting Rick impression, followed by his Scott Steiner impression. RD remembers when Scott was an awkward collegiate athlete before he...got bigger.
  • RD remembers the "other Precious" Patty Stratus crashing a wedding. (:18) Despite this Blade still prefers granny pantie Miss Elizabeth.
  • RD wonders what Al Wilson is currently doing, so he checks up on him. (:20) He remains Torrie's real life father. Blade forgot RD was declared dead on Wikipedia three times. He wants WCR character appearances as tier perks.
  • On randomly wondering who should appear in the Hall of Fame, Blade knows WWE will need to make another Katie Vick outfit. (:23)
  • RD respects Mark Henry being stubborn to remain in WWE despite being put into a relationship with Mae Young. (:24) Blade was happy when he won the ECW title.
  • RD: "I still wanna know what Al Wilson's up to."
  • He argues with Blade over the tiering of some women of whom Blade follows their workouts on Instagram. "It was kinda strenuous," he admits. He likes Dawn Marie nowadays, and misses WCW's "Sour Lemon". RD does not remember another 'lost' Diva Search contestant with an unfortunate name and a Bart Simpson impression.
  • Surprisingly Blade does not have Savage and Elizabeth as his favorite wrestling couple of all time, due to complications on Savage's side of being...well, who he was. (:33) Instead he gives that to Rick "I mean Scott" Steiner and Shakira and Midajah. 
  • For RD, he chooses Enzo Amore and some KFC chicken (redundant, I know) in 2017, an "ad" so memorable that it too has fallen into the Void. (:37) My guess is it was out of some drunken shame more than WWE trying to cut ties after future endeavoring him on behalf of his personal daemons. Blade: "Wow."

Blade wants the episode to be gifted to a loved one. RD: "Tell your friends. Lie to them. Tell them the show is good."

We're Educating The Masses!

Raging_Demons here once again kiddies and boy have I got a story for you! Here's the weird part because it involves us! I know!

Now we have been providing recaps for The Co-Fruitcakes and keeping track of the odd bunch of people, as well as their drunk, drg addicted hobo ventriloquist dummies with barely workung robots, for years on this site. Did you know however that we are now an official source of material? I think you know that already. Here's what I'm getting at. We are ALSO a source for your higher education needs!

I know you're asking "What The Hell are you talking about?!" I just found out yesterday that someone used this very site for a college paper!

So I'll explain it all and it started on Deal's Facebook page. Deal showed some love for us in a Facebook post. The next poster came from someone named "Frank" (Not sure if he is related to "Frank From LA" or not). Frank said that he used us for "a reference for a college paper on irrational characters in fiction." and that "It surprised and amused my professor."

First of all I'm shocked that we of all people are used for educational purposes! Second, and this is a big second, but I should had let Frank know that Deal and Blade handle real people whenever they call in. I (unfortunately) do work with Mike Check all the time on his show, which we produce. Also -

*phone rings*

Also -

*phone rings*

Also- ARGH! *picks up phone* WrestlCcrap Radio dot com!

Angry Jim Ross: How ya doing tonight Fake Deal?

Raging_Demons: Angry Jim Ross! Why are you calling right now?! I'm in the middle of a post here!


Raging_Demons: JIM!!!


Raging_Demons: Jim. I don't follow him on Twitter but he shows up in my timeline whenever someone that I follow "likes" one of his tweets. The Iron Sheik is just as angry as you are.


Raging_Demons: What about ZZ Top? I don't know anything about this!

Angry Jim Ross: I promised these kids Nick and Matt that ZZ Top was going to show up to this event in Las Vegas! I was going to have ZZ Top play "Sharp Dressed Man" for Kenny Omega-!

Raging_Demons: Event in Vegas? Oh my God! The rumors are true! You are working with The Young Bucks in-

*phone click*

Raging_Demons: ...AEW.

Where was I? Oh yeah. I can't believe we were used for a college paper.

280 Fun With Tammy: February 7, 2019

Tammy's Not In Love?
75 minutes
((( recorded in left audio channel only fidelity )))

Blade ambushes RD with Tammy news. Hey, at least they're talking about wrestling! (From sources telling Blade following her on her Facebook page.) Sometime after Christmas she said she was looking for a wedding ring. RD is at least happy they talk about her earlier in the show anyway. She has had a month to make things happen after all.

[It should be noted by the way that this and Tammy's other posts are all set to FB friend visibility only. This means that ideally these updates are only meant for a limited audience and not intended for the whole world to see/hear and laugh at. Especially if they are shared by a (sometimes inebriated) bachelor in his mid 40s who keeps confusing himself with his masked and suited alter ego. So essentially Blade is giving away private stuff here no matter how private it may be. This, I admit, is poor form. Watching a train wreck may be fun as long as you're not inside it, but when it's in a closed area instead of an outdoor showing, it gets replaced with guilt. We all remember what happened to Joanie Laurer after all, and I fear the same ending too if this keeps up.

On the other hand there is literally no possibility she is a Listener or a Reader, so I suppose we have to keep calm and carry on (while watching somebody else do otherwise.)]

Another Patreon puller! The Hosses are reviving the old RD & Blade Show for supporters, with the (now solidified as) 42nd released earlier. And yes, as you can see below this I will be summarizing those also. Yay me. You'll have to support them to get the episode link though to listen to the episodes themselves though. I'm not interfering in business and freeloading you know! At least today's episode (of that, not WWCR) is less than half an hour, for old times' sake.

Blade makes a Big Announcement for some reason. (:07)

RD remembers Jimmy Jack Funk being at every house show he attended. (:10) Blade went to a four hour show that angered his parents.

Like me RD prefers to drink his drink cold. (:16) At Christmas he got some "artisan" Alaskan water from his brother. He drinks that while he plays Tammy's music again on Blade's behalf. According to Blade's Facebook following she was cooking pork (to RD's surprise and active imagination) and got surprised by a video of someone...eating.

Rebel looks different with a new gimmick as a "Panda Doll".  (:22) RD prefers her to Baby Doll, as lovely and charming as she is otherwise. Blade likes BD though and remembers the time he hunted down one of her centerfolds. RD gets confused by Blade's "Eucalyptus Cry".

In May in Indiana Billy Gunn will appear in a "Bash For Babies". You know what that means, yes? It means he likes to f...ight. (:28)

Speaking of fighting Tammy found herself single a week after her engagement. This is a not a repeat from the last time this has happened. (:34) Blade does some random impression. Unsurprisingly she's reconsidered her public "retirement".

Speaking of people who should retire, Mike Check sadly does not repeat the time he spent in Brazil playing heavy metal to heavy metal miners. (:36) Blade is surprised he's been around for so long. He was once in Moscow...Idaho, also in the '80s, in KRMN "The Kremlin" as Ivan Gorbachev. RD manages to escape by the playing of Debbie Reynolds. (:40) Blade reads some "Breaking Tammy News" in which she was hospitalized (to remove her gallbladder). This is not a repeat from the last time this has happened. Blade: "You can tell I've been drinking." She wants to file for "malpractice" (though sadly not for the malpractice of her career), so of course she asks on Facebook and gets surprised when people tell her the obvious. Blade will have some of what she's having.

Speaking of Facebook, Rob Lambka asks about wrestlers having a love connection or something. (:44) Blade wanted 2006 Mickie James and Robecca Di Pietro (whatever happened to her anyway?) Speaking of people who wish they were back in 2006 (and in love), Tammy again got surprised when people tell her the obvious. Blade does an impression. So does RD.

Blade fondly remembers identifying with Adrian Adonis and watching him wrestle Tito Santana to not win the Intercontinental Title. (:52) RD tries to relay his favorite match of Jerry Lawler vs. Bret Hart at Summerslam 93 which un/fortunately did not have a Sunny run-in. Blade "says" he is too "broken" (as he characteristically and show-stopping laughs like a slow moving river) to read another post, so RD gets him to read it via Sir Alec. (:59) That's what I'm talking about. RD is surprised she 'interacts' on her pages at least. Or perhaps that's because she has nothing better to do? (I was going to say 'appear on Impact' but Joanie did that already. We all know how that turned out.)

Speaking of having nothing better to do, Tammy suddenly wants another boyfriend to break off an engagement to. (:66) She asks her Facebook followers that she likes so much for a one night stand in Lancaster, PA, romance capital of America (and actual capital for a day), with the power of (Diamond Dan's) HOTTness.

Blade: "She's on the prowl now!"
RD: "Somebody call the animal patrol!"

Episode 42: The Expected Reboot: February 6, 2019

28 minutes

The RD&BS makes a return, on Patreon anyway. The duo want to deliver more content for supporters and sponsors, hence this "long missed" radio progrem. I thought they wanted to attract more people? Then again it's better than Blade painting the Midnight Rose or going nude I suppose.

Blade breaks down laughing remembering how forgettable the show was. This one, not WWCR. The only thing RD can remember is that time when he ordered a pizza. Blade had to check this very here website to reconfirm things. He remembers getting a heat stroke while being attacked by bees, and someone using a meat scooper at Taco Bell. He is surprised if the show will have fans beyond four other listeners (besides the two of them).

RD plans to keep the revived show Patreon only. He tries to lay down some ground rules. (:05) The show now has audience participation! So expect to have another Co-Hosss Contest pretty soon.

For today however, Blade wanted to apologize to RD who "loves" Episode II, even though he doesn't. (:07) He could edit the films down to make them better, including a 45 minute "holiday special" out of Episode I. He has a few good things he likes visually about II however.

Blade: "The Ewoks were a Vietnam reference!"

RD thinks they should turn the show into a political debate program. I don't know, it seems more lively than that. You don't hear politicians discuss the merits of trashbagging. Deliberately publicly anyway.

Blade misses Cash-In Jango Fett and the Natalie Portman fashion show. The two run down her Episode II attire (:22). Both agree they like that white arena combat outfit. 

Blade trolls nostalgic for Episode II for some reason. RD does a Mace Windu and ends things.
