Former WWE wrestler Ashley Massaro has sadly passed at the age of 39 at a private hospital in Long Island in New York on Thursday.

The former SmackDown star, who was part of the World Wrestling Federation (WWE) from 2005-2008, died of “non-criminal causes” said Suffolk County Police following her demise. Ashley had joined WWE in 2005 after winning the federation’s Raw Diva Search. She was initially offered a one-year contract. The exact reason for her death is currently unknown.

Her most notable moment in the wrestling circuit came in 2007 at WrestleMania 23 when she took on the then Women’s Champion Melina. Massaro left WWE in 2008 citing her daughter’s sickness as a reason.
