NFT: Former WWE Diva Ashley Massaro has passed away

Anakim : 5/16/2019 8:16 pm
She was only 39 and preparing for a comeback. She won Raw Diva Search back in the day and appeared for Playboy. No word on the cause of death. Leaves behind a daughter.


Such a tragedy
That was 2005 she won right?

Is it the hard lifestyle?

That doesn't mean much. None of these girls wanted muscle cause the WWE wasn't looking for that. What they were looking for were fitness level models and that means various drugs for weight cutting and body sculpting. Drugs like fen-phen which can cause heart valve damage. There was intense pressure for women in the WWE to look perfect.

Right, but he mentioned steroids. Can't see how an extremely thin girl like Ashley took steroids.

It is diffent with the newer generation but when you listen to some of the older guys you understand why..

1st they were working 320 days of the year always on the road..

2nd they said they got such an adrenaline rush they would go back to thr hotel and you are by yourself and really there is nothing else to do but party and do drugs..

3rd they were all on pain pills because there was no guaranteed money, so if you didnt work you didnt get paid..

4th Vince back then wanted larger thannlife so they all had to get big, smaller wrestlers did not makenit back then

most female fitness models and many female athletes on on Oxandrolone (anavar). Probably most wwe females.
When will McMahon be held accountable?

He uses people up and disposes of them, raking in hundreds of millions annually at their expense. Wrestlers get nothing from him: independent contractors with zero stability, no longevity, forced to work long hours and travel constantly in a business that he has total control over. Evil man.

this is bullshit, the relationship with the talent goes both ways.
Read it was a suicide...

Holding McMahon accountable? When they (Katie Couric interview, think it was) threw the list of dead wrestlers at him when the Benoit incident occurred, he sort of found his way around the question by saying that all those names didn't pass away under his company's contract.

Said he was only responsible for the three or so (Eddie, Benoit, Owen) that happened on his watch.

Very smooth Vinnie, very smooth.

PS: No one on this planet is more annoying than John Oliver.

To each his own, I guess. McMahon calling his employees 'independent contractors' is absurd.

No one put a gun to their head and forced them to sign with Vince, that remains true. But the constant usage of 'they are independent contractors' by Vince and his subordinates over the years to dismiss any and all criticism that comes their way remains short-signed and foolish.

Whenever Vince or one his toadys like rapist Pat Patterson bring that up as a source of defense, they neglect to mention the iron fist they have used over the decades when the talent initiates unionization discussion.
A shame, had to be drugs

she was as hot as it got when she hit the scene. She's been honest about drug addiction, you can safely assume drugs to stay muscular and lean were part of the cocktail.
Her best friend,

went on Instagram last night and said Ashley committed suicide. Said that she's been suffering from depression for years, and that she didn't listen enough or do enough for her. So, we'll see where this goes, I guess. Either way, sad.
It was a suicide  
Mr. Nickels : 5/17/2019 4:52 pm : link
sadly.

Also she was involved in a lawsuit against WWE for her various head injuries. This could get ugly.

Further, she was allegedly sexually assaulted during a visit to the troops show.

Oh I'm not sticking up for McMahon at all. We all know he doesn't give a shit about anything but his legacy ties to WWE.

To see Vince "crying" on the Andre the Giant documentary about Andre's death last year was fucking comical.

Hes a terrible actor, the crocodile tears were worse than the time Taker lit the Stephanie's bear on fire in 1999, lol.

Steroid abuse isnít helpful. Doing all the other drugs and the lifestyle is a bigger deal. Knew a guy who married Ms Elizabeth after she divorced Macho Man. She got back into wrestling and dies of a coke over dose. Horrible lifestyle

Looking at pics of her, the highlights in her long flowing hair underneath the trucker hat takes me back to those 2000's days. Sucks it had to end this way for her.

We all know that being in the WWE is a rough life. Never knew about the sexual assault incident during the visit to the Middle East. That's fucking appalling.
