Despite Sunny being one of the biggest names being inducted into the 2011 WWE Hall of Fame this past Saturday night, don’t expect to hear her speech in full tonight during USA Network’s broadcast of the Hall of Fame ceremony at 8PM EST. (The Score in Canada will also air the event on April 5th at 6:30 PM EST.)
She is being snubbed by Drew Carey. That’s right—Drew Carey. Apparently this is due to the ongoing deal WWE has with GSN to promote his new series on the network.
As a result, we will be hearing Drew Carey’s speech from Saturday night. For those of you looking forward to hearing the heat he generated, don’t expect it. WWE has apparently heavily edited it off the broadcast.
This shows the lack of respect WWE has for the Divas Division has just hit a new low.
Sunny, as we all know, defined the word diva. She left a landmark on women’s wrestling (WWE women’s wrestling, not entertainment) in addition to turning valets into managers. She added sex appeal when the company was in financial trouble and needed to attract young pubescent males and young females along with winning two Slammy Awards for "Best Buns" and "Best Manager" during her five-year stint with the promotion.
Whereas Drew Carrey, the former TV star turned host of The Price is Right, had one Royal Rumble appearance (being the only performer to eliminate himself), Sunny has contributed so much more to the WWE. Now Carey is being given time to talk to WWE fans. Even casual fans have heard of Sunny, but nobody cares about Drew Carey being inducted because he does not even deserve a place in the Hall of Fame.
