Luna Vachon, 48, the daughter of Butcher and niece of Mad Dog Vachon and a well-known wrestler in her own right, was found dead this morning at her mother's home. She was staying with her mother after her own house was burned down in a fire just recently. Those are the only details we have at the moment but we will update later this afternoon.
Very sad news I thought she was a pretty damn good Wrestler and valet for Bam Bam Bigelow back in the day. RIP Luna.

Wow! That's terrible. I just read her "Where are they now" on WWE.com not to long ago. This is definitely a shame.

I wonder how she passed away.

Thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

Y'know, the last time I read about Luna Vachon was when she was working as a forklift driver and was having financial difficulties making ends meet. This was maybe 8 or 9 months ago. Pretty sad.

She was a really good wrestler, even though her career never really took off like it should have. R.I.P. Luna.

That's one of the first things that popped into my head honestly, that or a drug overdose.

Being a wrestler is tough, even more tough when you have trouble getting another job after you quit, get fired or retire.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was suicide to be honest.
That's the first thing that I thought of too considering what just happened to her home and all her personal belongings. If she was having trouble before something like that could have put her over the edge.

RIP Luna.

RIP, unfortanetly another wrestler bites the dust. That is the second death with in 3 weeks. She probably died of a drug overdose or suicide she was still young, they are going to do an autopsy on her tomorrow, and reports are saying that there was no foul play involved.

Thoughts and prayers are with Luna and her family.

I know her and Gangrel used to be together, not sure about the current status or lack thereof.

This was on Gangrel's twitter, by the way. I'm guessing it's about Luna, I don't know why he uses Angelle for a name. Her Wikipedia says that her name was really Gertrude Vachon.

"angelle you where to good for this world! my forever friend im truly going to miss you! you are a wild flower that should never been picked"

and D-Lo's. "I have lost a number of friends over the past few years but this one really hurts . Goodbye Luna I will miss you."

One more thing, I promise lol...from JR's blog, he wrote about Luna after hearing the news:

Luna Vachon Passes Away at age 48..Personal Thoughts of a Unique Lady.

It is said that death comes in three's. Apparently that's morbidly correct. Upon hearing of Luna Vachon's passing this morning came another reminder that no one is guaranteed tomorrow.
The exact cause of Luna's passing has not been determined but 48 is much too young for anyone to be taken from this world and our sincere condolences go out to Luna's family and the many friends that she had in and out of the wrestling business.
When Luna reported to me in WWE's talent relations department many, many years ago she was a hard working, passionate, almost obsessive performer who definitely had the wrestling business in her blood.
Her family, the Vachon's, will always be known as one of the best known 'wrestling families' ever in the business. Her father, Paul (Butcher), and her famous uncle, Maurice (Mad Dog) Vachon were stars for decades.
Luna told me that being a wrestler was the only thing that she wanted to do since she was a small child. She said she couldn't remember the time when she didn't want to wrestle for a living.
Inside the ring was where Luna seemingly felt the most comfortable with herself both professionally and personally. She was an excellent in ring performer who helped many of her fellow females become better wrestlers.
At times, Luna was very hard on herself when she felt that she didn't have the match that she wanted to have and was more often than not her own worst critic. I found out that praising her and doing what I could do to help her self esteem motivated her to no ends.
While Luna Vachon wasn't perfect, none of us are for the record, she was more often than not fun to be around.
Like many other human beings, Luna was susceptible to personal challenges and WWE assisted on these matters on multiple occasions.
The last time that I saw Luna was in Las Vegas a couple of years or so ago at the Cauliflower Alley Club reunion when Bret Hart was honored and I attended along with Steve Austin. Luna was so happy to see us both. We had our photo taken together and had a great visit. She was driving a tow truck in Florida and Steve and I both enjoyed Luna's 'tow truck stories.'
One could tell that she missed the wrestling business but was pleased that she was an independent woman, had a job and was apparently garnering much needed stability in her life.
We talked about her being diagnosed with being bi-polar and her having issues with depression of which she battled on an on going basis for a good while. Luna was a battler and was a tough individual who said she was going to keep fighting the good fight but that it wasn't easy. Steve and I both gave Luna many words of encouragement and spent significant time with her at the CAC function talking old times and mostly laughing about our mutual experiences. Without question, laughter is good medicine for all of us.
I know Luna loved her family, especially her children, and had a twinkle in her eye when talking about them. It was as if she wanted to make up for lost time with her family, especially her sons. Being off the road and working a 'regular job' was going to give her the opportunity to do so.
Luna and I couldn't believe that it had been well over a decade since we had talked as she left WWE, I believe, in 2000 or so. When one is younger we ask, "Where did the day go?" and when we get older we catch ourself asking, "What happened to that decade?"
Luna Vachon had a unique and often times challenging life but even with the issues that she battled she had many friends who, as will I, always look back upon the good days that we shared.
Perhaps now Luna can finally find peace and tranquility in Heaven where her existence will finally be problem free.
Rest in Peace Luna. You will be missed.
