Last week, the tragic news came down that former WWE star Ashley Massaro had suddenly passed away in Suffolk County, N.Y. There were little details released as to how it happened, but we now know the answer to that question and it makes the death even more tragic.
TMZ has the details of her death:
“Ex-WWE superstar Ashley Massaro was found hanging in an apparent suicide, multiple sources connected with the situation tell TMZ Sports.
The 39-year-old was found unconscious inside of her Suffolk County, NY home early Thursday morning — and she was transported to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead.”
The WWE has since honored her legacy by with a full screen “In Memory” slate on Sunday during the “Money in the Bank” pay-per-view event.
Massaro made her debut in WWE after winning the WWE Diva Search in 2005. She received a one-year, $250,000 contract and wrestled for the company from 2005-08.
She would’ve turned 40-years-old on May 26th.
