Former WWE diva Ashley Massaro has died at the age of 39.
According to The Blast, Massaro reportedly passed away today but details of her death have not been announced.
The Suffolk County Medical Examiner in New York told The Blast that Massaro passed on Thursday and was brought to the medical examiner’s office. Her death is currently under investigation by that office.
Police sources told The Blast that a “rescue call” came in at 5:23am ET from Massaro’s home in Smithtown, which is about 1.5 hours from New York City.
First responders then took Massaro to a local hospital and that’s where she passed. Police do not believe foul play was involved, and are classifying her death as non-criminal.
She is best known for winning the “WWE Diva Search” in 2005, and eventually becoming a valet for WWE Tag Team Champions, Paul London and Brian Kendrick.
One of her most famous matches was against Melina at Wrestlemania in 2007. Later that same year, Massaro appeared on the cover of Playboy.
She leaves behind one daughter.
