WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch returned to Facebook last night, admitting that she made up claims of a mugging in order to get websites to post the story, hoping to trip them up.

Sytch also admitted that a similar story about her being approved to adopt a child from Cambodia (one that did not run as it seemed extremely far fetched, given her personal issues over the last year or so) was also a lie for the same purposes.

On her Facebook post, Sytch wrote, "Soooooo my plan worked!! Every time I put a status on facebook, every wrestling website writer copies it and posts it as their status!! WELL, I guess I got the best of them this time! For the past two days Ive been making up the craziest crap, just to see if they post it as factual news, without checking the facts first!! And yep! They did! Isnt it sad that these "journalists" have no real skills for actual reporting other than copying bogus social media status updates!! Reminds me of a couple years ago, when I said "one of the TNA knockouts was expecting"..remember that??? Yep, I made that one up too to see if they'd run with it... So FANS, Im sorry i had to include you all on this charade, but I DIDNT get mugged, NOR am I adopting a child from Cambodia. And WRITERS, maybe you'll think twice before you copy my statuses just makes you look gullible and STUPID that you jump on things BELIEVING you have the newest BIG SCOOP, when in actuality, you have nonsense that just makes you look pathetic...... SOOO, stop whacking off, get out of Mommy's basement, and get a REAL JOB!!! AND FOR ONCE, GIVE US PERFORMERS OUR PRIVACY!!!! HAHAHAHAAH! Ohhhh that was fun!"

Once again, Sytch fails to realize that as a public personality (and one that has been all over the news in the last year for her multiple arrests in Connecticut), when she makes a statement on Facebook or another social media platform, it's pretty much the 21st century equivalent of speaking in a public forum.

Furthermore, if Sytch had any clue about how journalism works, she would know that once she makes said statements, the story does not become what *happened* to her, but what Sytch *says happened to her.* We covered her claims, so from a journalistic standpoint, we did our job. The story was true - it was about what she said. Meanwhile, Sytch just publicly admitting to lying to the general public - the same public she wants to get to buy her planned autobiography, unless that too, was just a ploy to get attention without any real truth behind it.

Just another chapter in the last year of Sytch's life, which included a five arrests arrests, several rehab stays, 114 days in jail, WWE refusing to cover her any additional rehab financially, a blow-up on Twitter with her ex-boyfriend just a few weeks ago, a public incident in August in Charlotte, NC where both Tully Blanchard and Tom Prichard had to reprimand her, spooning with fans for money, a public admission that perhaps she's dealing with mental illness (on the Kayfabe Commentaries' Breaking Kayfabe DVD) and now this. She's come a long way from her WWE Hall of Fame induction in 2011 and quite frankly, in my opinion, it's been a scary thing to watch.
