• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 47th birthday of “No Gimmicks Needed” Chris Candido (Real name: Christopher Candito).
Candido was in a lifelong relationship with his high school sweetheart Tammy Sytch and together they joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1995 as “The Body Donnas” with Chris becoming “Skip” and Tammy became “Sunny”, before both were joined by “Zip” (Dr. Tom Prichard).
In 1996, The Body Donnas won the vacant WWF World Tag Team Championship, but Chris left the promotion before the year was over and jumped ship to Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling, where he wrestled until 1999 and then joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling for a brief run in 2000.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE!
