Former WCW wrestler Daffney Unger has died at the age of 46.
Fellow professional wrestler Lexie Fyfe wrote on behalf of SHIMMER Women's Pro Wrestling: "We are very sad to have to announce the passing of Shannon Spruill aka Daffney Unger @screamqueendaff.
"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."
A spokesperson for the Gwinnett County Medical Examiner's Office also confirmed Ms Unger's death to TMZ Sport, but did not comment on the cause of death.
There was a growing concern for her health amid an Instagram Live session that she streamed on Wednesday night (1 September), where she looked to be in a worrying state.
Spruill first introduced herself on WCW in 1999 as David Flair's (Ric Flair's late son) girlfriend and manager.
A month before WWE's takeover of WCW in 2001, she was released from the company and moved to TNA wrestling (now Impact Wrestling) in 2008.
After appearing in various matches, she hung up her boots in 2011 where she competed in her final matchup.
However, she would continue to make brief appearances in companies, such as Shine and Ring of Honour up until 2018.
People of the wrestling world took to twitter to pay their respects.
Rest in peace, Daffney.
