Occupation: Actress and professional wrestler
Tammy Sytch was born in Matawan, New Jersey on December 7, 1972. She is the daughter of a retired United States Navy official, and she has one sibling: Denise.
She attended college, where she worked part-time as a freelance photographer. In 2007, she returned to her post-secondary studies, obtaining a degree in medical technology.
Tammy was in a 15-year relationship with professional wrestler Chris Candido, who attended the same high school as her. She has been romantically involved with Shawn Michaels, Damien Darling, and Dolph Ziggler.
In 1993, Tammy entered the world of professional wrestling. She made her first appearance in the industry at Smoky Mountain Wrestling, where she accompanied her real-life boyfriend, Chris Candido, to the ring. Her character was that of a college student.
After two years with the independent promotion, Tammy was noticed by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), where she would serve as a commentator throughout syndicated television shows. Tammy eventually transitioned to being a personality, accompanying and managing various talents to the ring, including Chris, Farooq, The Smoking Gunns, and the Legion of Doom. The company released her in 1998 for no-showing multiple appearances.
Now-defunct Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) hired Tammy, serving as a valet to Chris. Her tenure ended in December 1999 after some personal issues were made public.
This did not end her pursuit of pro-wrestling success. She appeared in Xtreme Pro Wrestling (XPW) and then signed with World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Her time didn’t last long as the company terminated her contract when it was believed she had a drug abuse problem
For the next several years, Tammy appeared and even competed in a wide array of pro-wrestling organizations: World Wrestling Council, National Wrestling Superstars (NWS), National Wrestling Association (NWA), Ring of Honor (ROH), and Women Superstars Uncensored (WSU). Tammy has also sporadically returned to the WWE and was inducted into its Hall of Fame in 2011.
Outside of pro-wrestling, Tammy has posed nude for adult magazines and has starred in pornographic films.
Despite her success, Tammy has been addicted to drugs and has had numerous legal issues, including burglary and driving under the influence (DUI). She currently faces five years in prison for violating her parole.
We estimate that Tammy Sytch’s net worth is $5.6 million (2018).
So how much is $5.6 million really?
$5.6 million can pay for the WWE’s Former Talent Rehabilitation Program. $5.6 million can also help construct a physical WWE Hall of Fame.
