Ashley Massaro’s wrestling sisters launch fundraising campaign for her daughter’s education

New, 21 comments

Ashley Massaro’s death last week at age 39 shocked her friends, family and fans. But obviously, no one was impacted more than Massaro’s teenage daughter, Alexa.

A group of women who knew and worked with Massaro at WWE, including Lillian Garcia, Mickie James, Lita, Maria Kanellis, Candice Michelle, Taryn Terrell, Shelly Martinez, Katarina Waters, Lisa Marie Varon, Christy Hemme, Kristal Marshall, Rosa Mendes, Trish Stratus, Torrie Wilson, Gail Kim, and others have started a GoFundMe to raise money to pay for Alexa’s college education.

“We, the Squared Circle Sisters who had the amazing honor of working with Ashley Massaro in the WWE, have come together to honor Ashley’s memory - and to create light and hope in the wake of tragedy. We all knew and loved Ashley and her beautiful spirit. Her smile radiated the entire locker room and arenas everywhere. We also got to know Ashley’s incredible daughter Alexa. As our way to show Lexi she is not alone, we have started this gofundme campaign to unite us all and show Lexi and her family our love. Every dollar raised will go into an official New York State 529 college savings plan (technical schools, vocational schools and career colleges all included) to provide for Lexi’s continued education - which would have made Ashley so happy. We invite you to please watch the video we put together & join us by contributing to the cause. Let’s keep Ashley’s memory alive now and forever!! Ashley, thank you for touching our souls and being you! Lexi, please stay strong and know you can reach out to any of us for support! YOU ARE NOT ALONE! WE LOVE YOU!! - Your Squared Circle Sisters ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”

If you are in a position to, consider sending a few bucks to help a young woman already facing life without her mother (and, if TMZ is correct, dealing with the knowledge Massaro took her own life).

But even if you aren’t in such a position, know that her mom’s wrestling family has Alexis’ back.
