Ashley Massaro Suicide – Ashley Massaro WWE Suicide
Former WWE superstar Ashley Massaro reportedly died in an apparent suicide at her Long Island home after years battling depression.
Her friend, Shelly Martinez said in a statement to The Blast: “My best friend from the wrestling business died from suicide two days after responding to 300+ fan letters. She was the happiest I have seen her in years, so stoked that people still cared about her 11 years after her career was over. There are no signs. It comes without warning.”
Massaro had been open about her mental health — and previously blamed bouts of depression on injuries suffered during her wrestling career.
Massaro joined a class-action lawsuit against the WWE, which alleged the organization failed to protect wrestlers from head trauma and concussions.
She claimed in a 2017 affidavit that she suffered multiple concussions and was never warned about the risks associated. Massaro said in the affidavit, “Aside from my on-going physical injuries that were sustained in the ring, and my former battle with addiction, to this day I suffer from depression, for which I take medication; migraine headaches; and severe short-term memory loss.”
