Ex-WCW Star Daffney Unger Dead At 46

Pro wrestling star Daffney Unger found dead hours after posting disturbing gun video on Instagram

Former wrestler Daffney Unger — who starred in the WCW from 1999 to 2001 — has died after posting a very disturbing video to her social media page.

She was 46 years old.

A spokesperson for the Gwinnett County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the death, but did not reveal a cause or manner.

Daffney’s friend, wrestler Lexie Fyfe, said the former WCW star — real name Shannon Spruill — was found dead Thursday morning.

Several figures within the professional wrestling world posted frantic messages to social media appealing to anyone who knew of Unger’s whereabouts following the release of a concerning video to Instagram late on Wednesday in which the 46-year-old wrestler appeared to express her intention to harm herself.

Speaking in the brief clip, Unger, who was sobbing and seemed to be holding a firearm, said: “Do you guys not understand that I am all alone? Do you not understand that?”

She also stated in the video: “Remember, my brain goes to Boston.”

“We are very sad to have to announce the passing of Shannon Spruill aka Daffney Unger,” said Lexie, who told us she and Daffney were so close, they “called each other sisters.”

“We are posting this at the request of her family. Please respect their privacy at this trying time. I will miss you my logical sister from another mister.”

Daffney had gone on Instagram Live late Wednesday night and appeared to be in a suicidal state, saying in her video, “Do you guys not understand that I am all alone? Do you not understand that?”

She later could be heard in the footage saying, “Remember, my brain goes to Boston.”

Fyfe tells us Daffney had been battling mental health issues in recent weeks … and urged anyone who’s going through similar struggles to reach out for help.

Fyfe also tells us cops initially had trouble finding Daffney following the posting of the video … explaining Daffney had just moved into a different apartment just four days ago.

The wrestling world was rocked by the news … with legend Mick Foley saying, “I’m so very sorry to learn of Daffney’s passing. A terrible loss for her family, friends and wrestling. She was far ahead if her time in our business. #RIPDaffney.”

Added wrestling star Frankie Kazarian, “RIP Daffney. Just, awful news. She was a guest at my wedding…This is so incredibly sad. Please, reach out. Always. Godspeed.”

After her stint in the WCW, Daffney went on to have a big role with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling from ’08-’11. She retired a short time later.
