Brock Lesnar No WWE Punishment ... for Failed UFC Drug Tests

7/26/2016 3:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726_Brock-lesnar_wweBrock Lesnar will NOT be disciplined by the WWE for his UFC 200 drug test failures ... and WILL perform at SummerSlam as planned ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

A WWE spokesperson tells us ... only full-time WWE performers are subject to the organization's wellness policy, which prohibits PEDs ... but since Brock isn't a full-time performer, he's essentially exempt. 

"WWE’s talent wellness program does not apply to part-time performers such as Brock Lesnar," the spokesperson said.  

We confirmed with the WWE that Brock has only performed in 19 matches over the past 3 years (4 in '14, 8 in '15, 7 in '16) ... and that the average full-time WWE superstar wrestles more than 200 matches per year. 

One well-connected source broke down the situation like this -- WWE is show business, not a regulated athletic competition ... and the wellness program is only designed to keep the "full-time" performers healthy. 

Bottom line -- Brock will be in the squared circle on August 21st ... no matter what happens to him in the UFC.

The WWE Hall of Famer tells TMZ she went under the knife years ago to repair her schnoz after break #3 ... but after busting it 6 more times, she says it's worse than ever. 

In fact, Tammy says she's got some nasty scar tissue buildup that caused weird bumps on her bridge. So she reached out to "Botched" honchos hoping they could work some of their magic on her face.

There's more ... Tammy also says she's got belly issues after surgery for cervical cancer a few years ago and liposuction would he HUGE in helping her get her ideal bikini body back.

Fingers crossed.

WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch -- aka Sunny -- is more than 100 days sober after a long stint in rehab and she says she's ready to get back to work ... in front of a webcam.

However, the cash flow won't just end at private calls -- Sunny says she's also booked plenty of convention appearances and is ready to hit the road ... sober this time. 

In fact, Sunny says she's already hit the salon HARD -- because she wants her first impression back in public to be a good one! 

As we previously reported, Sunny says she's also down to start working with Vivid again -- but so far, it's unclear if the two sides have hammered out a new deal.

WWE's Jerry Lawler Charges Dropped In Domestic Violence Case

7/1/2016 8:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0701-jerry-lawler-lauryn-mcbride-TWITTEr-02WWE legend Jerry "The King" Lawler is off the hook in his domestic violence case -- prosecutors have dropped the charges against him and his fiancee. 

66-year-old Lawler and his 27-year-old fiancee, Lauryn McBride, were arrested in Memphis on June 17th -- after they both accused each other of violence ... and someone broke out a GUN. 

Officials were initially unable to determine who was the aggressor -- so they arrested both Lawler and McBride. They were then ordered to stay away from each other. 

But now, officials have dismissed the assault charges against both parties -- we're guessing the decision was based on the fact there were no major injuries and neither side wanted to go forward and testify against the other. 

Lawler's attorney told the Memphis Commercial Appeal ... the whole thing was "a big understanding and won't happen again. We are happy with the outcome."

EXCLUSIVE

An emotional X-Pac took the stage at Chyna's memorial Wednesday night and apologized to his ex-girlfriend for "not taking better care of you" ... while revealing he loved her until the day she died. 

"Joanie and I had a really rocky relationship," X-Pac said ... "Until the day she died, I loved her very much, I really did."

X-Pac (real name Sean Waltman) and Chyna began dating in 2003 and reportedly broke up in 2005 -- but clearly, X-Pac still cared about her. 

"I hope you forgive me for not taking better care of you ... and I'll do everything in my power to make sure you end up in the WWE Hall of Fame where you belong."

Besides X-Pac, there were several other tributes to Chyna at the memorial -- Hulk Hogan and Kurt Angle made videos, Coolio performed and Rob Van Dam gave a speech. 

Chyna was cremated and her urn was on display -- bedazzled -- because organizers believe that's what she would have wanted. 

Chyna died back in April. She was 46.

Ex-WWE star Rob Van Dam Wife Files for Divorce But We Don't Hate Each Other

5/27/2016 4:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-rob-van-dam-sonya-van-dam-wife-divorce-split-TMZ-GETTY-02Rob Van Dam's wife is tapping out of their marriage -- filing divorce docs to end their 17-year union and asking the judge to restore her old name, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Sonya Szatkowski filed court docs in L.A. citing irreconcilable differences. The two married in 1998 but Sonya claims they separated back in December. They have no minor children. 

Sonya is asking for spousal support and says Rob should have to pay her attorney's fees. She's also asking the judge to restore her name from Szatkowski to Delbeck. 

We spoke with Sonya who tells us the two are still on relatively good terms -- they're still talking -- but she just decided the marriage wasn't working anymore. 

She added, "It’s a private time. It’s a hard thing for me to even talk about."

It's especially sad considering Rob and Sonya's love story was pretty well known -- Sonya often traveled with RVD during his wrestling career so she could be ringside for his matches.
