Ashley Massaro's death believed to have been suicide Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/17/2019 at 01:03 PM
TheBlast.com is reporting that Ashley Massaro's death is believed to have been a suicide but an official cause of death has not yet been determined.
The Blast noted the following:
Massaro worked at a local radio station and we’re told she failed to show up for work without notice, which raised a red flag.
Numerous wrestlers on social media have indicated that suicide was the cause of Massaro's death. However, former WWE star Shelly Martinez is claiming that a fake Facebook account wrote something that she never said.
Massaro had recently been part of a class action concussion lawsuit against WWE. In a previously sealed affidavit, Massaro had stated the following:
“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.”
“I attribute these issues to my work-related injuries sustained while working for the WWE, and specifically to the routine repetitive blows to the head, I received in the ring over the course of my career which were not properly diagnosed or treated.”
