Bill DeMott, who is best known to wrestling fans as Hugh Morrus, tragically lost his 20-year-old daughter Keri Anne due to a drunk driver in October 2015. Given this, he clearly feels strongly about people driving while inebriated and launched the Keri Anne Demott Foundation to honor her memory and encourage people to make the right decisions. Now following the news that former wrestling star Tammy Lynn Sytch has been arrested for DUI manslaughter, he has called via a press release for her to be removed from the WWE Hall of Fame.
49-year-old Sytch was involved in a three-vehicle car crash on March 25th, and while she claimed she had a seizure at the wheel, toxicology results revealed she had a blood-alcohol level 3 ½ times the legal limit allowed to operate a motor vehicle. As a result, she faces up to 30 years in prison and is currently out on $227,500 bail. However, there have been calls for her to be incarnated until the trial due to her being a danger to others. And since she has been arrested at least six times previously for DUI, it is an understandable concern.
With regards to DeMott’s call for Sytch to be removed from the WWE Hall of Fame following her 2011 induction, there has been a past precedent for this occurring. As back in 2015, Hulk Hogan was removed after a tape featuring him making racist remakes was leaked. Although WWE did later reinstall him and even inducted him for a second time as part of the nWo. Additionally, later that same year, Jimmy Snuka was charged with involuntary manslaughter and third-degree murder 32 years after the death of his girlfriend, Nancy Argentino. WWE would quietly remove him from their website’s Hall of Fame section, clearly wanting to distance themselves from the crime. Yet he wouldn’t face justice as he was deemed unfit for trial, and WWE posted a tribute to him when he passed away in 2017.
