The wrestling world mourns the death of Ashley Massaro

Ashley Massaro wasn’t with us long, either on this earth or on our screens as a WWE Superstar. She continued as part of the wrestling community, making appearances after requesting her WWE release in 2008 so she could care for her sick daughter. She recently began taking independent bookings again and was working toward a more regular in-ring return.

The cause of her death yesterday (May 16) at age 39 is still unknown, with officials in New York’s Suffolk County thus far only saying it was “non-criminal”. As you can see in some of the thoughts and remembrances below, a few of her friends and co-workers have either heard more information informally or are making assumptions about what ended Massaro’s life.

That news will come in time, and won’t change the point most of her friends and colleagues are really making - that Ashley was a good person whom they loved.

We join the folks sending these messages, and the many, many more not embedded below, in keeping a good thought/saying a prayer for the friends and family Massaro left behind, especially her now 18 year old daughter Alexa.
