– Thanks to Gina for her help with this one. As noted a few weeks ago, former WWE Diva Tammy “Sunny” Sytch announced on her Facebook page that she was headed to WrestleMania 25, presumably for the 25 Divas Battle Royal. Apparently Sunny was booked for the All Star Wrestling promotion’s 3rd Anniversary show in Gilbert, WV on April 4th but had to pull out of the show due to the invitation to WrestleMania. Here is the letter she sent to the promoter of the indy show, Gary Damron, where she mentions training for the match at WrestleMania.
Ok, Ill just tell you by e mail. Im so sorry, but I have to pull out of the show April 4th….I NEVER cancel a show unless its for a really good reason, and this time I have a really good reason…
Im doing the Hall of Fame and Wrestlemania!! I got the call yesterday from Johnny Ace, and Im in the Diva Battle Royal on the show…. and Ill be flying down on Friday..Im terribly sorry, but I cant pass up this chance to be seen by them again..who knows what could come of it! As far as the plane ticket is concerned, if you cancel the reservation with the airline, they will let you apply the fare towards another flight down the road, so it’s not money lost…Ill give you a call later today, as I have a busy day of training ahead of me to prepare.
