EXCLUSIVE

0519_Tammy-Lynn-Sytch_WWE
WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Lynn Sytch ... aka "Sunny" ... could be doing an entirely different kind of rear-naked choke in the VERY near future -- 'cause she's thiiiiis close to signing a monster porn contract. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... Sunny -- widely considered the very first "WWE Diva" -- has been in talks with Vivid Entertainment, the same company that produced Chyna's "Backdoor to Chyna" video.  

Vivid tells us the two sides have spoken several times and a 6-figure offer is on the table for Sunny to become a "genuine porn star" -- not just a 1-time sex tape thing. 

"After the tremendous success of Chyna, this makes total sense. Hoping we can work it out," Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch tells us. 

We're told the deal is "VERY close" to being done ... and that Sunny is prepared to start shooting right away. 

No word on what the first title would be ... but here are some suggestions: 
-- "Piledrivin'"
-- "N.W.O-face"
-- "Monday Night Raw Dog" 
-- "HummerSlam"
-- "D-Generation Triple-X"  
-- "The People's Anal" 

Ok, your turn ... 

UFC's Anthony Pettis

I May Have Busted Elbow

But I'm Still Fighting Wrinkles!

5/19/2015 4:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-anthony-pettis-cast-TMZSPORTS-02He just had surgery to repair his busted elbow last week, but UFC badass Anthony Pettis refused to let some stupid cast stop him from doing what he loves ... FIGHTING WRINKLES!! 

Turns out, Pettis is a partner in a skin care company called Seacret -- which sells products infused with Dead Sea minerals that "help reduce fine lines and other imperfections on your face."

And Anthony is so passionate about the stuff, he hit up a seminar in Phoenix, AZ to promote the line ... just one week after reportedly having surgery to fix a torn muscle and ligaments in his right elbow. 

One person who was at the seminar tells us ... Pettis told the group he vows to come back stronger than ever and battle his way back to the top of the fight game. 

At the very least ... his skin will probably look good.

Exclusive Details

Memba Shawn Oakman -- that GIANT mountain of a college football player who became an Internet meme last year??? 

Well, he's back ... hitting a 40" box jump WHILE HOLDING 70 POUND DUMBBELLS IN EACH HAND!!! 

TMZ Sports obtained footage of Baylor's famous 6'9" 280 pound defensive end getting in some hardcore strength training in Vegas -- and it's pretty impressive.  

Oakman hit up the exclusive Athletic Gaines training center on Tuesday -- and worked out with Travelle Gaines, who's trained some of the best athletes in the world ... including Reggie Bush, Andrew Luck, Marshawn Lynch and LeSean McCoy. 

We're told Oakman began the training session with light weights ... and moved up ... with Shawn capping out with the 70 pounds dumbbells.  

Oakman will be a senior at Baylor next year ... and some experts think he could be the #1 overall pick. 

Keep your eye on this dude.

Chris Paul & DeAndre

'Beef' Is Total BS

... Says Clippers Teammate

5/19/2015 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-deandre-jordan-dahntay-jones-chris-paul-TMZ-GETTY-01There is NO rift between Chris Paul & DeAndre Jordan ... despite reports to the contrary, so says Clippers teammate Dahntay Jones who tells TMZ Sports the L.A. superstars are still like "brothers."

"Guys fight and argue on the court, but that's just the emotion of the game," Jones says ... "but people want to blow things out of proportion."

Jones is responding to an explosive report that Jordan could bolt Tinseltown this summer because he can't stand playing with CP3. 

But Jones says he hasn't seen anything between the guys that make him think beef is on the menu. 

"Those guys are brothers, man. They sit with each other on the plane, on the bus. If you don't like a guy you stay away from him."

As far as Jordan's relationship with rest of the team goes -- Jones says, "Everyone here wants DeAndre back. No other center can do what he does for us."

Diamond Dallas Page

Don't Give Up On Scott Hall

'Recovery Is a Process'

5/19/2015 10:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-dallas-scott-hall-getty-01Wrestling legend Diamond Dallas Page says he knows his friend Scott Hall has "stumbled" in his ongoing battle with substance abuse ... but says he still has Hall's back -- no matter what. 

Page has essentially been a sober mentor for both Hall and Jake "The Snake" Roberts -- who both had serious issues with alcohol and drugs after becoming world famous wrestling stars. 

Now, with Hall being escorted out of a wrestling event in NJ this weekend for allegedly showing up drunk, Page says he wants Hall to know he can count on him for support.  

"Scott is going through a life process. He's stumbled along the way, but he is doing well over all. I've got his back."

Page adds, "Even Jake 'The Snake' has fallen a few times, but he is now one year sober and doing great."

DDP says he plans to speak with Hall soon ... and hopes he can help get Hall back on the sober path, asap.

I Love the Vikings ...

But AP's Gotta Go!

5/19/2015 9:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Swardson is a massive Minnesota Vikings fan ... HUUGE ... but the actor tells TMZ Sports his team needs to drop Adrian Peterson, ASAP ... saying he just can't root for a convicted child abuser. 

Swardon's love for the Vikes is well known -- remember, we shot him going berserk in a bar when they passed on Johnny Manziel last year -- so, when we saw him out in NYC today, we had to ask about AP. 

"Get rid of him." 

You gotta watch the clip, Swardson says that while AP is a beast on the field, he just can't get past the brutal images of Peterson's abused 4-year-old son. 

"I'm a diehard Vikings fan but I'm also a fan of children."

John Travolta

I'm a Huge Basketball Fan

... Balled Out In High School!!

5/19/2015 8:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Did you know ... John Travolta was a jock in high school? 

Turns out, back before he was a world famous movie star ... Travolta says he was a member of his high school hoops squad back in Englewood, New Jersey.

In fact, Travolta says he's got a solid 5 years of experience under his belt ... and still considers himself a pretty big basketball fan.  

So, we had to ask about some pretty shocking poll results that came out over the weekend -- 34% of people believe 52-year-old Michael Jordan would beat LeBron in a 1-on-1 game RIGHT NOW!!! 

Check out Travolta's answer -- it makes sense. 

Meantime, here's some footage of Travolta hoopin' at Rydell High ...

... They're Here to Stay

5/19/2015 7:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Fear not Bills fans ... your new owners will NOT double-cross you and move the team out of Buffalo ... so says legendary Bills QB Jim Kelly

Of course, billionaire Terry Pegula promised the fans the team would stay put when he bought them in 2014 ... but with markets like L.A., Toronto and even London calling ... you never really know. 

But Kelly's VERY confident that Pegula's a man of his word -- he's also pumped about the man Pegula brought in to coach the team ... telling TMZ Sports, "The Rex Ryan era is on the way!!!"

The video's cool -- Jim Kelly's the nicest guy in the world ... and explains why a guy with a cannon for an arm never EVER considered playing baseball. 

UFC's Daniel Cormier

I've Got a Date with Mariah

... After UFC 187 Fight

5/19/2015 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey eats chicken wings. Boxer Danny Garcia immediately has sex. But Daniel Cormier says he has a different post-fight ritual planned for UFC 187 ... he's going to Mariah!!! 

Since the UFC star is set to take on Rumble Johnson in Vegas this weekend ... Cormier says he plans on taking in a local show the night after the fight -- and he picked Mariah over Britney and Celine!

But Cormier says he's not usually a "Diva" kind of guy -- admitting he's OBSESSED with Boyz II Men ... and has basically become a regular at their shows!!! 

Cormier's not joking ... he's a bona fide B2M'er ... and he's damn proud of it. 

Check out the clip. 

American Pharoah

My Dad's Sperm

Is Hotter Than Ever!

5/19/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0518_American-Pharaoh_Pioneerof-the-Nile_getty-2Imagine getting paid $60,000 ... just to bang. 

That's how much it costs to mate with American Pharoah's father right now ... and the prices are going UP UP UP in the wake of AP dominating at the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. 

The horse that's getting all the action is Pioneerof The Nile -- who's been nailing mares professionally since 2010 ... and churning out some of the fastest ponies in the game.

TMZ Sports spoke with the people at WinStar Farms, where Pioneer lives (and bangs), who tell us ... "The phones have been ringing non-stop with people asking about him [since the Derby]."

When Pioneer first got into the baby making game, his rate was $17,500. But that was in 2010 ... before his kids started crushing it on the track. Now, his seed runs $60k-a-pop and we're told the price is expected to go WAY up. 

A rep for Pioneer's owner tells us, "He was busy before. His babies were hitting the ground running. But we haven't experienced anything like this. Not even close."

So, how much higher could the prices go if Pharoah wins the Belmont Stakes and takes the first Triple Crown since 1978? 

No one would give us an exact price but they did say it would provide a VERY significant boost. 

After all ... "Everybody loves a winner."

EXCLUSIVE

UFC superstar Anderson Silva tells TMZ Sports ... Jon Jones should NOT return to the Octagon ... instead, saying Bones needs to focus on fixing his life outside the ring.

The Spider explained that he LOVES Jones (the two have been friends for years) but says he has a message for the embattled fighter -- "You need to change everything in your life."

It's been a rough year for Jon ... he's been suspended by the UFC indefinitely after being charged with felony hit and run ... just months after testing positive for cocaine

Meantime, Silva is also currently suspended .... after testing positive for PEDs before his UFC 183 victory over Nick Diaz. 

But Anderson says he is already putting together some post-fight career plans ... plans that could have him working with Sylvester Stallone

WWE Legend Scott Hall

BOOTED FROM WRESTLING EVENT

... Allegedly Hammered, Again

5/18/2015 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall was physically escorted out of a wrestling event in NJ this weekend ... after promoters say the recovering substance abuser was way too hammered to do his job. 

Hall has battled drug and alcohol issues for years ... but had teamed up with some other wrestling legends in recent years in a public effort to clean himself up. 

Which is why the people at the Skate and Surf Music Festival in Asbury Park, NJ were so disappointed Saturday when Hall appeared to be wasted ... hours before he was supposed to host a meet and greet with fans. 

According to our sources, Hall was given multiple chances to sober up ... but never did. Organizers told Hall to leave ... but he refused, demanding to be paid. 

Eventually, security stepped in and escorted Hall off the property.  

The event promoter, Ricky Otazu, tells TMZ Sports, "The event was too well run for us to make a fool of ourselves by allowing him to appear. We will no longer be associated with him until he gets his life in order."

Hall was arrested in 2012 for allegedly choking his girlfriend during a drunken rage and was sentenced to 10 days behind bars for a 2010 DUI arrest

We made several efforts to reach Hall for comment -- and even called his close friends and family members -- but so far, no word from the wrestling star.
