The following 3 Old School Pro Wrestling Stars are currently facing their respective sentences in prison:

1. WCW Veteran Hardbody Harrison

Hardbody Harrison wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling between November 1996 and October 1999.

In 2004, Gregory Harrison was arrested in Smyrna, Georgia, for false imprisonment.

By 2005, the FBI raided his homes and later arrested him on federal charges, including false imprisonment and trafficking women for s*x acts.

In 2007, he was found guilty of keeping eight women as s*x slaves. During the trial, Harrison claimed the women were there voluntarily to train as wrestlers, but witnesses testified to psychological manipulation, forced s*x, and participation in s*x orgies.

The victims revealed a harsh training regimen aimed at turning them into prostitutes, with Harrison profiting from their activities.

In 2008, he was sentenced to life in prison.

2. AWA/WWF Veteran Buck Zumhofe

The self-proclaimed ‘King of Rock n’ Roll’ Buck Zumhofe spent most of his professional wrestling career working for Verne Gagne’s AWA, but also wrestled as a jobber for the World Wrestling Federation sporadically during the 80s and 90s.

In May 2013, Zumhofe was arrested and faced twelve felony charges for criminal s*xual misconduct, involving the abuse of his then 15-year-old daughter from June 1999 to June 2011.

He was convicted on all counts on March 5, 2014. Following the verdict, Zumhofe attempted to escape from the courthouse but was apprehended and charged with ‘escape from custody’.

Subsequently, on May 6, 2014, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison for two first-degree and two third-degree counts of criminal s*xual conduct, with the judge ordering consecutive sentences for the four counts.

3. Sunny

During her 1995-1998 stint with the World Wrestling Federation as a valet, Sunny was considered one of the most beautiful women not just in pro-wrestling, but on the planet.

At one point in 1996, she was even the most downloaded woman on the AOL Internet.

In 2011, Sunny was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, but her downfall began long before that, when she became addicted to alcohol and pills, and over the years it became subsequently worse and worse.

On November 27th 2023, a 50-year-old Tammy Lynn Sytch was sentenced to over 17 years in prison for a 2022 DUI crash in Florida, that resulted in the death of a 75-year-old man.

She pleaded no contest to DUI manslaughter, four counts of DUI with damage to a person, and two counts of DUI with damage to property.

After serving her prison term, Sytch will also face eight years of probation. Prosecutors sought a maximum penalty of 26 years, emphasizing her danger to society due to repeated DUI offenses.

This incident follows her release just four months prior from an eight-month prison stint for a previous DUI. In 2019, she faced her sixth DUI charge after driving the wrong way on a one-way street with a suspended license.
