A huge THANKS to everyone who helped me raise $15,000 in September for #SuicidePrevention and #MentalHealthAwareness - and to honor the memory of Daffney.

The WWE Hall of Famer is regarded as one of the kindest human beings in the history of professional wrestling. There is no doubt about the fact that Foley has a mutual love for his fans, and this video is a shining example of that.

Daffney passed away in September of 2021

Daffney, real name Shannon Claire Spruill, began her professional wrestling career in 1999 under WCW. During her time with the company, she was mostly known for her association with David Flair and Crowbar. Daffney was also the second woman after Madusa to win the WCW Cruiserweight Championship.

Prior to WWE's purchase of WCW, Daffney was released by the company due to budget cuts. She then started competing on the independent scene before she signed with TNA.

Earlier this year, Daffney, unfortunately, took her own life. In September, in an Instagram live video, she read a suicide note and asked for her brain to be donated for CTE testing.

Following the circulation of the live video across social media platforms, concerned fans expressed their support for Daffney. However, the following day, Daffney's passing was announced online.

The time Daffney attempted to revive Crowbar and accidentally won the WCW Cruiserweight title.

After her death, the professional wrestling industry showcased its condolences toward Daffney's family and mental health awareness once again became a topic of discussion in the pro wrestling industry.
