Former WWE Diva Ashley Massaro passes away
Another personality from the wrestling world has left us. Former WWE Diva, Ashley Massaro, passed away Thursday.
According to The Blast.com, she was found at her home in Smithtown, New York, that morning.
Emergency responders arrived after a called was placed about an unconscious woman. They performed CPR on her on the way to the hospital, but it was not enough. She died later that morning.
There is not a lot of information on her cause of death, besides rumors. Hopefully in the coming weeks we will get more information. The first sign of concern took place when she did not arrive for her radio job that day.
Ashley was one of my favorite performers. She did quite a bit in her short WWE career. She won the 2005 Diva Search, posed for Playboy, was the valet for the very talented team of Paul London and Brian Kendrick, had two WrestleMania matches (one with Melina for the WWE Woman’s Title).
She was also a contestant on the show Survivor: China in 2007. She did a little modeling and acting as well. She appeared in both Maxim and Flex Magazine and was on an episode of Smallville.
Recently, she hosted a radio show on 94.3 The Shark, which is a rock station. She was training again in the ring. I am not sure if she was planning a comeback or was just doing it for fun. As far as I know, that was her first in-ring work in a while.
Ashley was making more appearances recently. She was at Wrestlecon, the New Jersey Horror Con & Film Festival, and was scheduled to appear at Starrcast this month.
Ashley always came off so down to earth to me. She seemed like a very cool chick you wanted to hang out with. Massaro loved her fans too. She followed me on Twitter and liked many of my comments. Ashley did many Instagram live one-on-one chats with her followers. I never got the opportunity to, but that would have been so cool.
Above is the last tweet she liked of mine. The last tweet she sent out was her acknowledging that she had responded to a bunch of fan mail. I am very curious about what happened after that tweet was sent.
She seemed like someone that was in a good place. It goes to show, you never know what someone is going through in their life. That is why it pays to be kind to one another.
Ashley was only 39-years-old. She was only 10 days away from her 40th birthday. Massaro leaves behind an 18-year-old daughter, many friends, family, and fans, who she meant the world too.
Rest in Peace Ashely. Gone but not forgotten. Rock on!
