Ashley Massaro killed herself at the age of 39
After eight months of the dismissal of a lawsuit, WWE Superstar Ashley Massaro killed herself at the age of 39. She went to a long Island after rushing from her home and came to the hospital on Thursday morning. The blast reports that she claimed head injuries from her wrestling career which made her spiral into depression and finally towards her death.
The cause of her death is still a question, but it seems like a criminal. She found was unconscious at her $500,000 home in Suffolk County, New York, and then brought to hospital EARLY ON Thursday morning, where she passed away. She did not respond to the calls from the local radio center where she was doing the job.
She was a model and a wrestler who rose to even greater notoriety among a mainstream audience. The WWE Superstar from 2005 to 2008 died at the age of 39 by suicide. She appeared at the Exxxotica Expo, Edison on November 8, 2014.
She used to speak about injuries she got during her working for WWE. Although these injuries were sustained for a long time, she told that all the injuries were dismissed in September 2018. Ashley also told me in the past that those injuries became the cause of them spiraling into depression and addiction in a class action lawsuit.
Officials responded to a call reporting an unconscious female in Suffolk County and went to give her first aid. Officials told TMZ that she was alive during the ride to the hospital, but passed away after reaching the hospital.
The Boston Globe reported: ‘She hired an attorney Konstantine Kyros to join a class action lawsuit against WWE related to head injuries and neurological damage in November of 2016. ‘
Ashley Massaro claimed that the company concealed risks of injuries known to cause neurological damage, as well as the officials of the company, discouraged her report against an alleged sexual assault. The company was a US military base in Kuwait where she survived during a WWE tour in 2016. She dismissed the lawsuit in September 2018.
In 2017, she said in her affidavit: ‘WWE caused a great physical, mental and financial damage to me. I went through severe pain with emotional distress. I fought a long battle with my injuries that were sustained in the ring and threw me into a well of depression. she said, to take medication to treat my depression, migraine headaches, and severe short-term memory loss. During my career, I did not treat these injuries properly caused by repetitive blows to the head.
She had a 19-year-old daughter, Alexa, who posted a story on Instagram:
‘I wish to get more memories with you. I miss you, mom. Every morning, I wake up and my eyes fill with tears when not find you around. I want to hug you tightly. I want to be in your arms. Please come back to me. I don’t need anything more than it.’
Ashley Massaro remained in the program for 42 days and she claimed that organizers did not provide any monitoring and ignored other aspects of head trauma after the program. She also got a neck-breaker injury during a match with Torrie Wilson in 2005 that could become the cause of her death.
She said the organization used narcotics as a tool for all the wrestlers so that they perform well even after getting injuries. The use of narcotics affected the mental health of wrestlers and they became addicted to it. In September 2010, she took help from the WWE Former Talent Rehab Program to cure her injuries and depression.
Her friends and co-workers tweeted heart-wrenching posts on Thursday. Many of her friends said that she was a very kind encouraging lady. Kelly Klein also said: ‘She always encouraged me by her words and actions. I’m feeling bad for her daughter who loves her mother a lot.’
Wrestler Mick Foley also posted on social media about his neighbor and friend’s death: ‘I am unable to get over the shock of her death. She was planning to start training at NYWC about wrestling again. I never saw such a down-to-earth person like her in my life. May her soul rest in love and power!
Wilson also paid tribute to his colleague on Friday, tweeting: ‘We lost one of the sweetest persons of the world. We should ask for help if we’re going through a difficult time. I’m requesting to everyone to seek help from others and to keep hope when dark places surround you.’
The WWE organization also released a statement on her death: ‘We are offering heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ashley Massaro. Her sudden death is very shocking for all of us. Her fans and fellow Superstars will never be able to replace their beloved wrestler.’
Ashley Massaro used to date her fellow wrestler Matt Hardy, but their relationship broke up after a few months. Hardy is now the father of two children with her wife Reby Hardy. Massaro shared a memory about her ex in November last year which became the cause of a hateful tweet from their wife of Hardy. Mrs. Hardy claimed that she doesn’t care about the past of her spouse. She replied to a tweet:
‘I’m unable to understand the psyche of people who force me to care about something I don’t give a f*** about. They criticize me for not mourning the death of their beloved wrestler, LOL.’
The cause of the death of Massaro is still a mystery but is classified as non-criminal. On January 5, Massaro wrote an Instagram post: ‘ We always have a plan for our life, but life is very unpredictable. Everything can change within seconds. So try to forgive people for their mistakes as we all live once ‘

Massaro had to quit the organization in mid-2008 when her daughter Alexa, born on July 23, 2009, became sick and needed the care of her mother.
