Shannon “Daffney” Spruill settled her lawsuit against TNA Wrestling in a mediation session last Friday. The lawsuit was based on injuries she sustained at Bound for Glory 2009 (with medical bills over $26,000) and the challenging of her “independent contractor” status. Spruill wrote the following on Twitter:
I’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all the love and support over the past two years. I appreciate so much that you recognize the HUGE injustice that is being done to Professional Wrestlers throughout the industry. I hope my case has opened up a few blind eyes and maybe now we, the wrestlers who put our bodies on the line every time we step in the ring, are one step closer to being provided with medical coverage and all the benefits that go along with being a true employee and not an independent contractor.
