Sytch rips into WWF divas

One of the first divas of wrestling says many of the women in the World wrestling Federation haven't got a clue what to do in the ring.

"I think it's stupid," Tammy Sytch -- better known as Sunny -- told The Sun from her home in New Jersey. "It's too much. There are way too many girls not knowing what they're doing."

Sytch ranked Terri Runnels as one of the best in the business but wasn't as high on some others.

"I love Torrie and Stacy, but they don't really know what they're doing -- otherwise they're sweethearts," she said. "One person who I can say is a wonderful person and a great worker is Molly Holly."

Sytch and long-time boyfriend Chris Candido, also an ex-WWFer, will hit Doubles Fun Club tomorrow (9 p.m.) for Top Rope Championship wrestling.

Sytch, who left the WWF in 1998 after seven years, was the first woman to get a huge push. By 1995, it was estimated fans were downloading her pictures between 3,000 and 5,000 times daily from the WWF site.

In 1996, Sunny was the first celebrity in the history of cyberspace to achieve the one-million download mark, leaving Cindy Margolis in the dust.

The WWF quickly added Sable and Marlena (Terri), and its female roster has grown to a dozen. Playboy magazine also noticed the demand, featuring Sable and Chyna for a couple of their best-selling issues ever.

"(WWF boss) Vince (McMahon) brought the Playboy idea to me, and I said no, I was too young, so they gave it to Sable," Sytch said. "But I had (the offer) first."

Just over a year ago, Sytch decided to bare all and launched an X-rated site (www.wrestlingvixxxens. com) with fellow ring queen Missy Hyatt.

"Now I'm a little bit older, wiser and I was ready. I'm proud of it," she said.

The idea for wrestlingvixxxens. com almost began as a dare.

"We were just sitting in (Hyatt's) apartment, and she said 'You know what we haven't done yet?' " Sytch recalled with a laugh. "It's going strong, and I might start off on my own, too."

A "workaholic," Sytch keeps busy with her site and doing shows around the world.

Would she like to return to the WWF?

"Yes, I plan on it," she said. "I have the perfect idea."

Candido and Sunny will be signing autographs at Jabroni's Hardcore wrestling Store tomorrow between 3 and 5 p.m.
