WWE nixes paying for anymore rehab for Tammy Sytch

WWE made a public announcement today that they would no longer fund rehab treatment for Tammy Sytch, which is believed to be the first time the company has done so for any previously contracted talent.

Sytch had blasted WWE in an interview with Sean Oliver of Kayfabe Commentaries claiming the company had for an expensive rehab facility, but once Linda McMahon lost the senate election, moved her to a far cheaper facility.  She claimed that she asked WWE to move her to a better place due to the bad conditions, and brought up how much they spent on Scott Hall, she claimed she was told, "Well, you're not Scott Hall."

The WWE's statement in respoinse was:  "As part of the Former Talent Rehabilitation Program, WWE has sent Ms. Sytch to rehabilitation numerous times, with all costs covered by WWE.  Unfortunately, Ms. Sytch has continued to make poor personal choices and is ultimately responsible for the consequences of these decisions.  WWE has always provided rehabilitation at a certified treatment center, however, given Ms. Sytch's inability to change her lifestyle and successfully complete treatment, WWE wil no longer fund her rehabilitation."
