My favorite WCW Daffney moment. Daffney was so excited that I would put her over like this. I’m pretty sure it happened because @wcwcrowbar and I were just talking about how to get her involved in the match. Daff thanking me 8 million times at least. #RIPDaffney pic.twitter.com/hwMJmMiQMA— Hurricane Helms (@ShaneHelmsCom) September 2, 2021

I was lucky enough to work a show with Daffney about a decade ago. She was one of the very first mainstream talents I ever interacted with on a true professional level, and she couldn’t have been cooler.— Ryan Pappolla (@BodieIsRyan) September 2, 2021
The importance of mental health should never be diminished. May she rest.
