WWE issues a statement about Ashley.
Yesterday, the wrestling world was informed that one of its members Ashley Massaro passed away at the age of 39. Ashley competed in WWE for three years until she was let go from her contract and after her time in the company, Ashley joined a class action lawsuit against WWE where nearly 60 wrestlers went up against the sports-entertainment company and accused them of not protecting their in-ring performers from concussions and head trauma. The lawsuit was dismissed last year and today, The Blast received a statement from WWE concerning Massaro which read that Ashley reached out to the company on October 20th of last year and wanted to make amends.
“Long after Ashley Massaro filed an affidavit, which WWE only learned of the contents after she passed away, Ashley sent an email to WWE on Oct. 20, 2018 – approximately one month after the Court dismissed all claims against WWE and sanctioned the lawyer who brought the suit against WWE, Konstantine Kyros, for repeated misconduct including pursuing false allegations.”
WWE also sent over one of the emails that Ashley sent to them and she noted that she loved WWE and those within the company were like her family and closed the email by noting that the lawsuit got out of control.
“I love WWE, you all were my family the whole time I was there,” and claimed, “The lawsuit got out of control very fast-I had been roped in by the lawyer representing the others.”
WWE also claimed that Ashley expressed that she accepted her part of the responsibility and specifically wanted to share her sincerest regret to Kevin Dunn, Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
