Shannon “Daffney” Spruill has settled her lawsuit against TNA over medical bills for injuries sustained during her time with the company. The lawsuit was settled on Friday morning in a mediation session that took place just before a scheduled hearing. According to sources close to the case, the hearing was for the judge to rule on whether Daffney was an employee or, as TNA claimed, an independent contractor. TNA approached Daffney about a settlement after the hearing was originally scheduled.

 

 

The suit had been in relation to the injuries she suffered at Bound for Glory 2009, which racked up over $26,000 in medical fees. Daffney claimed that TNA only paif $600 of the bill and that Terry Taylor told her that the company would pay the remainder, but TNA declined to do so.

 

 

Daffney posted the following to Twitter after the settlement:

 

 

“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 toProfessional 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 trueemployee and not an independent contractor.”
