Dark Side of the Ring producers have discussed their efforts to get Tammy Sytch’s story directly from the source.
The season four premiere episode of Dark Side of the Ring focused on the lives and careers of Chris Candido and Tammy Sytch.
Speaking on the latest edition of Talk Is Jericho, Dark Side of the Ring producers Evan Husney and Jason Eisener shared their attempts to get Tammy Sytch for the show.
However, the former Sunny consistently refused interviews largely on the advice of her lawyers.
On the struggle to actually have a direct interview with Sytch for the episode, Husney explained:
“Literally every season we would check in, we would write a new letter, we would send out more feelers through lawyers and things like, ‘We’re doing another season, can we do the interview?’”
“And it just never came together, and I think given her current situation where her legal situation is a little more intense, we did have some correspondence where I felt very positive she was going to say yes and we were going to do it and we were going to have her in the episode.”
“Then kind of at the last possible minute, we got word that, at the advice of her legal counsel that they’ve advised her not to.”
Despite declining their request for an interview, the creators got a sense that Tammy Sytch initially wanted to speak with them. Sytch is currently dealing with her DUI manslaughter case in court.
Given the fragility of her legal status though, the creators believe Sytch may not have wanted the risk of the contents of the episode possibly affecting her upcoming trial.
