This is starting to sound like a worked shoot. Literally.
Last week, TMZ reported that former WWE Diva Sunny was selling her Hall of Fame ring on eBay. She claimed she was “so done” with WWE, and getting “back on track” by letting go of the past.
Now the gossip and ellipses awareness site is reporting that porn magnate Steve Hirsch of Vivid Entertainment is offering Sunny big money — to the tune of $100,000 — for the ring. Porn bosses are basically Ursula from The Little Mermaid, so there’s a catch: They’re offering $100,000 for the ring and a 90-minute sex tape. Cue ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls.’
He’s even giving her some options on the specifics of the shoot, letting her choose her partner and the location.
No word yet on if Tammy will accept but Hirsch isn’t playing around … he wants the whole thing done in less than two weeks.
Call me a porn smark and a conspiracy theorist if you want, but this feels like marketing to me. Hirsch has been publicly courting Sunny for the better part of a year, claiming last May that a similar six-figure deal was “very close” to being done. Sunny repeatedly denied the rumors, but continued to drop hints that they were true, and reportedly shared info about the shoot and her co-stars during Skype chats.
Add to that the fact that it’s WrestleMania (and WWE Hall of Fame) season, Sunny’s selling a WWE Hall of Fame ring, and Vivid wants a deal done in time to release a film before WrestleMania. They’re offering 100K for a $3,000 eBay auction, and TMZ’s got info about it every step of the way. We’re through the looking glass, people.
