Any time I saw her, we’d both scream “LOOK AT ALL THE SHOES!” – as she knew it was my favorite line of hers from the WCW Flair house vignette.
Daff was such a warm, caring & deeply compassionate person. Lifted others when they were down. An unforgettable person for all of us. pic.twitter.com/sbR2uhabrx

“Crowbar” Chris Ford, Twitter: One of the most enjoyable and fun times of my career was working with Shannon at my side. We had *FUN* Neither of us could believe the blessing that we were given – the opportunity to perform on the grand stage of WCW. Each and every moment was appreciated by us. And we tried to make every moment *FUN* She truly lit up a room and brought smiles to everyone around her. These memories have and always will be cherished and hold a special place in my heart. Rest In Peace, God bless and love you my friend. 🙏🏻
Bill DeMott, Twitter: I am so sad to learn of this. Such a great young lady with a huge heart. She always brought a smile to my face. My strength and prayers to her family, friends, and fans.
Lita Amy Dumas, Twitter: So heartbroken to hear of the tragic news of @screamqueendaff She was such a special person. Please look out for each other. 💔RIP Daffney
Kevin Eck, WCW Magazine, Twitter : Incredibly sad news about Daffney (Shannon Spruill). We met 20 years ago in WCW. She was a sweet, genuine person and so much fun to work with and be around. We kept in touch long after WCW closed. I even refereed one of her matches in MCW back in 2009. Unfortunately, we gradually lost touch except for an occasional FB message. I know the past few years have been a struggle for her. I hope she is at peace now. My deepest condolences to her family and everyone who loved her.
Mickie James, Instagram: My friend. My beautiful friend. Shannon, I love you. I am so sorry. I am heartbroken. I hope you can see now just how loved you truly are. This photo is from when I came to OVW in 2003. We started as roommates & from that day on you were always my soul sister. I will never forget you. I am at a loss for words. I am thinking of you, The Colonel, your family, friends, and so many affected today by this tragedy. You are never alone.
