(UPDATE: Daffney has tragically passed away.)
Former wrestler Daffney Unger has sparked grave concern among friends and fans after she took to social media and posted a video discussing suicide on Instagram Live late Wednesday night.
A portion of that video was posted to Twitter, showing Unger, real name Shannon Claire Spruill, sobbing uncontrollably.
In the video, the 46-year-old was seen saying: “Do you guys not understand that I am all alone? Do you not understand that?” Her phone could be heard vibrating multiple times as she says: “Just stop. Just please stop,” before apologizing and saying “I love you.”
WWE legend Mick Foley said on Twitter that he attempted to contact Unger but “my phone call went straight to voicemail.”
He added, “If anyone has a way of reaching Daffney Unger, or knows her address, please help out. She’s in a bad personal place and is threatening to harm herself.”
Before that, Foley retweeted, “If anyone knows someone who knows Daffney Unger (the wrestler) personally can someone pls contact her and check on her she’s on IG live rn and she sounds like she may be about to harm herself.”
Unger debuted in the World Championship Wrestling promotion in 1999.

“I’ve been told emergency services have been dispatched to a couple of known addresses, and are still making efforts to contact her.
