Daffney Engaged, Velvet Sky & April Hunter Make Amends


— Shannon Spruill (a.k.a. Daffney), 34, recently got engaged. It would be the TNA Knockout’s second marriage. Her first husband was Rich Ward, who is the lead guitarist for Chris Jericho‘s heavy metal band “Fozzy.” (source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter)

— Velvet Sky and April Hunter have apparently made amends after working Monday’s Impact taping in Orlando together. The TNA Knockout posted a candid photo of herself with Hunter backstage at the show with a caption reading “Truce!!!! :)” You can see the image at the following link.

Before joining TNA, Sky, whose real name is Jamie Szantyr, formed a tag team with Hunter known as T&A — which was apparently a spoof on “Divas.” The group gained notoriety and worked a number of independent shows together over the course of 2005 and 2006. However, in late 2006, the two best friends had a really ugly split that eventually spilled over online with both women’s wrestlers personally attacking each other through various blog posts. Apparently, the two had not spoken to each other since their break-up.
