Shannon Claire Spruill (b. 1975) is an American Professional Wrestler, manager/valet and announcer from Atlanta, GA best known for her work in WCW and other promotions as Daffney Unger. She has also worked for WSU, Pro Wrestling Guerilla, CHIKARA (as Shark Girl), and Wrestlicious (as Draculetta).She debuted in November 1999 as a crazy admirer of David Flair. The two would team up with Crowbar (Devon Storm) and David and Crowbar would have a short run with the WCW World Tag Team Titles in January 2000. Upon adopting her now-famous Harley Quinn gimmick, Daffney herself would hold the Cruiserweight Title, making her the second woman, after Madusa, to do so.Daffney and Crowbar would stay with WCW to the bitter end but WWE did not pick up their contracts. Daffney would work for Ring of Honor and signed a developmental deal with WWE in 2003 and was assigned to OVW but she was released before she ever made it to WWE TV. She briefly retired and concentrated on acting until she returned to wrestling in 2006, working the independent circuit. On June 3, 2006, she defeated El Mexicano for the NWA Wrestle Birmingham Junior Heavyweight Title, making it the second men's title she had held in her career.She also had a career revival as a TNA Knockout; first as a short-lived Sarah Palin parody called The Governor, then reverting to Daffney once her Split Personality was ousted in the ring. Sadly, it's looking like she may never wrestle again due to concussions and other injuries suffered in TNA.She debuted for SHIMMER in 2007 as a manager, though she briefly competed under her Shark Girl persona. Starting in 2012, she would work as a hostess for SHIMMER's sister promotion SHINE Wrestling before returning to managing again.As usual, you can find the basics at The Other Wiki.
All-Loving Hero: According to an interview at Glory, Daffney loves everyone. No effort to hide her history of anger fueled retaliatory violence was made when saying this and she looks back at being put in Ric Flair's figure four leg lock fondly. The only negative feelings Daffney spoke of regarded a falls count anywhere loss to Rachel Summerlyn, whom she still does not regard as an enemy.
Amusing Injuries: During their Shimmer encounter, Shark Girl saved herself from Amber O'Neal's stink face the only way she knew how.
Ass Kicks You: Accidentally (and famously) got sat on by plus-sized wrestler Rosie Lottalove, which landed her in the hospital. Did we mention this occurred on tryouts? During a dark match to boot?
Ax-Crazy: Daffney's always crazy but her TNA run really brought out the ax into the equation as she became really violent, spitefully violent. It was apparent even during her lock box challenge "strip tease"...which made the whole thing even more uncomfortable. Dr. Stevie's efforts to cure her just seemed to be making her worse.
Beauty Is Never Tarnished: On the frequent receiving end of the trope's aversion. In particular, her TNA feud with Taylor Wilde revolved around Daffney's efforts to cut and maim her only to see them backfire. More dramatically still, Daffney received a concussion when Abyss put her through a barbed wire board.
Break the Cutie/Butt Monkey: Both in kayfabe and real life. Daffney was generally considered one of the unluckier wrestlers in the now-defunct Knockouts Division. Most of her injuries occurred in non-televised matches as the network didn't allow any depictions of man-on-female violence. During the Lockbox Challenge in which the wrestlers competed in a lottery for the Title, Daffney crapped out and opened the box requiring her to striptease. And, as the "ugly" Knockout of the bunch, she rarely got booked despite grossing high ratings during her appearances on iMPACT.
Cleavage Window: While she has worn these outfits, it is usually subverted since they have tinted screens. So far only one of them is really see through at ringside, much less for the viewers at home.
Cool Hat: A miniature top hat, tilted of course. She wore a big red hat that almost covered her face when hosting Shine.
CM Punk, in a case of ironic names, intended Lucy to be the good counterpart to Trinity, whom Raven had sicked on him, asking her to conform to the morals of the Second City Saints and respect the code of honor.
Daffney eventually became the good counterpart to April Hunter in Shine when she decided to go back to managing partially in response to the disrespect shown to her by the wrestlers Hunter managed.
Fighting Your Friend: She and Crowbar started out as "co-champions" to the cruiserweight championship and when wrestling each other to determine who would be the true title holder, neither really wanted to hurt the other.
Heterosexual Life-Partners: Considers Lexie Fyfe a true sister and Nikki Roxx the other half of her brain. Alternatively refers to MsChif as "my better half" and "my twin".
Horned Humanoid: Lucy Furr had red horn, but only in promo videos and photo shoots, not in matches.
I Have Many Names: During TNA's early years, she made a one off appearance as "Shannon". Better known names include Daffney, Shark Girl, Draculetta, The Governor and Lucy Furr (WEW, ROH).
Improvised Weapon: In a bit of foreshadowing, Daffney beat down Tara with a tool box. Later in a first blood match between the two, Tara won by hitting Daffney with a toolbox. This lead to the "lock box" challenge.
Ineffectual Death Threats: Vince Russo tried to punish Miss Elizabeth by putting her in a match with Daffney, who came out wearing a shirt which read "Liz Will Die". Daffney did not get any offense in the resulting "match".
Daffney attacked Taylor Wilde for the Beautiful People sticking her head in a paper bag in retaliation for her "governor" prank.
Daffney would go after MsChif for abandoning her while she was injured, even though they were in different companies when it happened.
Ms. Fanservice/Beautiful All Along: She provided more fan service in WCW than she would in later promotions, most notably when she competed in a Wedding gown match against Ms Hancock. In TNA she initially appeared in a fan service battle royal but was played up as unattractive when the company decided to give her a lasting on screen roll. All the same, Tazz found her "zombie hot".
Obnoxious Snarker: While not performing angry and not screaming, Daffney tends to whine, taunt or brag about herself in an animated manner with a tone of voice far removed from what she uses in her promos.
Perky Female Minion: Sometimes Daffney is worried by her behavior, more often she is amused by it but Daffney's always more gleeful and enthusiastic when paired with MsChif. She also served in this role to Crowbar in WCW, CM Punk in Ring of Honor and Aaron "The Idol" Stevens in OVW.
Three Month Rule: TNA tried to treat the Daffney persona as something new, despite its frequent mining of WCW plot lines. A lot of viewers probably were surprised to see she was the governor all the same.
