Massaro’s friends and former Survivor co-contestants took to social media to voice their sadness over her sudden death, as did the WWE, which she was a part from 2005 to 2008.

“We are saddened to learn of the tragic death of former WWE Superstar Ashley Massaro,” the WWE said in a statement following her death. “She performed in WWE from 2005-2008 and was beloved by her fellow Superstars and fans around the world. WWE offers its condolences to Ashley’s family and friends.”


Though she cut ties with WWE after three years, she announced just two months ago that she was planning her return.

“Gonna be bumping around the ring starting next week at @NYWCWRESTLING super pumped n ready to see what I got left in these ole boots of mine! Those guy are the best super safe and make me feel so comfortable-if u live in tri state area n want to train-THIS IS WHERE ITS AT!” she tweeted.
