Tammy Sytch Dealing with “Pretty Bad” Blood Clot Issue in Prison

As noted before, former wrestler Tammy Sytch was sentenced to over 17 years in prison this past November following her being convicted of the charges against her over a fatal car accident involving Sytch in March of 2022.

TMZ Sports held a recent interview with Sytch. One of the topics discussed included Sytch revealing that she has been suffering from a “pretty bad” blood clot in her leg during her time in prison.

Sytch stated that she began to notice something was off about her left leg following her relocation to the Lowell Correctional Institute in Florida earlier this year. Sytch also stated that she had asked for medical help which she did not recieve for weeks despite her leg looking like “somebody put a bicycle tire pump on it and just inflated it twice the size.” Sytch also stated that she is diabetic and that her leg had changed colors and could barely walk on it.

Sytch also stated that she eventually was able to get testing done for her leg and was informed that she had a blood clot that needs thinners for treatment. Sytch also stated that she is currently concerned about how prison officials are going to care for her as she heals up from her health issue.

Sytch also stated that if things continue as it has been, she will insist to recieve medical attention at an off-site hospital over her concerns of passing away similar to how her ex-husband Chris Candido had died.

“All that’s been going through my mind for the past three weeks is, oh my God, I’m going to follow in (my ex-husband’s) footsteps and die of a blood clot just like he did because I can’t get medical treatment at this prison. It’s pretty bad.”

Bushiroad CEO Takaaki Kidani Comments on Kazuchika Okada’s Departure from NJPW

Proresu-Today held a recent interview with Bushiroad CEO Takaaki Kidani. One of the topics discussed included Kidani’s thoughts about Kazuchika Okada’s departure from New Japan Pro Wrestling earlier this year.

“Well, I can only say that I had no choice. As I have said many times, if I were in the same position, I would have done the same thing. So I can only say, please do your best, and I may sound like a customer, but all I can say is, please spread the greatness of Japan to the world.

Yes (Bushiroad did nurture the Kazuchika Okada brand) … It’s a bit presumptuous to say that I raised him… I think that Okada has grown up on his own. So I think it was just a matter of providing a little bit of side support in the early days. After all, he became what he is because he worked hard, but I think it was also due to the cooperation of those around him and good rivalry. If I had to add one more thing, I would also like to mention his wife (Suzuko Mimori).”

As noted before, Stardom founder and head booker Rossy Ogawa was fired by Bushiroad this past February over allegations that he was he was poaching Stardom talent and staff for a new Joshi promotion later revealed to be Marigold. In a recent interview with Proresu-Today, Bushiroad CEO Takaai Kidani gave his thoughts about Ogawa’s firing from Stardom. Kidani stated “I feel like the pros and cons of terminating the contract (of Rossy Ogawa) have already been proven with this case (launch of Marigold). I’m sure the audience thought, ‘That’s right,’ and if they are going to do something like this, it must be so. I think it was always in my mind that Mr. Rossy would do something like this. I think he wants to be the final decision-maker. But I think that everyone has something in their mind… for example, the desire to quit their company or to change jobs. But whether or not you express that desire may be determined by the environment. The company gives you challenging work, and you enjoy working with your colleagues in a positive manner, so you push yourself to the point where you think that you shouldn’t think about such things anymore. I think we have created such an environment. When there were many absences and discordant feelings among the wrestlers, Rossy was the one who took care of them.” Kidani also stated a Bushiroad business partner had informed him of Ogawa’s plans to launch a new promotion at the time. Kidani stated “As I talked about on Weekly Pro, one of our business partners said to me, ‘Ogawa-san, you’re here.’ ‘I’m starting a new company, and we’ve asked you to become a sponsor.’ I told him that he could refuse. I’ve never seen anyone do it so openly.” (English translation via
