Daffney, best known for her time in WCW and TNA, passed away at the age of 46. Here are some of the reactions from the wrestling world:
Daffney was apart of my career from my early days with the Highspots family. She never hesitated to show me kindness, rather it be a place to crash while on the road or just fun conversation at the gimmick table.
You are loved and missed#RIPDaffney

#MentalHealthMatters because we all go through our own form of feeling alone, sad, depressed or afraid at times. #MentalHealthAwareness is sharing. Sharing because sharing can save lives. It’s saved my own as well as others around me. You’re not alone, I promise. RIP Daffney. 💔

Sweet, sweet Daffney. She was loving and supportive the minute I met her and she never stopped.
Ahead of her time and didn’t deserve what she had to deal with. But the people that loved her back will be her legacy. pic.twitter.com/s9flRBwe05

I have never said this before:
My dad commited suicide many years ago, mental health is no joke.
Open up about your feelings, reach for help.
Help those who seek for help, make ’em look for professional help.
