Here’s one from the history books: It seems former WCW worker, Daffney aka Shannon Spruill could be headed back to national television! Once, the deranged and psychopathic lover of David Flair (Good times, WCW!), Daffney was one of the only females in WCW to get truly get over with the fans and became something of a cult icon.
Spruill was later hired by WWE in 2003 to a development deal but was fired in the same year. She briefly did work in TNA during their Wednesday night pay per view days and this Thursday night on iMPACT!, Daff will make her national television return for the first time since WCW. Daffney will play the “fan” who challenges Kong this week. And wait, it doesn’t stop there! According to reports, TNA was so impressed by Shannon (iMPACT! was taped last week) that they want to hire her full-time!
I’m not too familiar with Daffney, other than she was a pretty big part of the WCW “women’s division” (if you could call it that) and was one of their only girls to actually get over with the fans, so I’m all for a talented, hard-working girl getting another shot in this crazy industry.
