Andre the Giant -- Sad Connection in WWE Star's Death

9/4/2010 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Funeral services for WWE star "Luna" Vachon will take place at Andre the Giant's North Carolina ranch -- where his ashes were spread 17 years ago -- and TMZ has learned, Luna's ashes will be scattered at the same place.

The reason -- we're told Andre was Luna's godfather ... and the two were extremely close.

No word on when the scattering is taking place -- but according to sources, Luna's funeral Mass occurred yesterday  ... and a private service is in the works today for friends and family.

As TMZ first reported, Luna was found dead over a week ago in her Florida home ... where investigators discovered crushed oxycodone pills and a snorting straw.

Luna Vachon was the anti-Alundra Blaze of her day. I guess her modern day equivalent is Daffney! ;)

Let's set the record straight. Luna once worked for the WWF up to 2000. She has NEVER worked for the WWE under the WWE name. She is or was not a current wrestler. It's been 10 years. Okay? She is not a WWE star. No matter how you put it.

Oh Lollie, Luna couldn't take an attractive picture. That's not what she did.

They can't use the WWF name anymore, the World Wildlife Foundation has a copyright on it hence the politically correct way of saying it is she was a WWE star. She was wild and crazy and damn good in the ring, that's all that should matter not whether she was a WWF star or WWE star, sheesh.

R.I.P. Luna, she's now in good company with Owen, Davey and the gang.
