SunnyThe Miami Herald has published their latest part of a lengthy women’s wrestling feature with comments from WWE Hall of Famer Sunny.

Here are some highlights:

Women’s wrestling today:
“I have nothing against women in the ring because now it has become so commonplace. It’s not my first choice of things to do. Let’s say if I were to ever go back, I wouldn’t want to get in the ring.
