• Ashley Massaro Died By Hanging, CM Punk Reacts
As we noted before, former WWE Diva Ashley Massaro died by suicide. TMZ Sports has confirmed this and noted that she died by hanging.
Below is what TMZ Sports posted:
“Ex-WWE superstar Ashley Massaro was found hanging in an apparent suicide, multiple sources connected with the situation tell TMZ Sports.
The 39-year-old was found unconscious inside of her Suffolk County, NY home early Thursday morning — and she was transported to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
The death is being classified as ‘non-criminal’.
She is survived by her daughter.
Massaro is being laid to rest in Suffolk County.”
Former WWE wrestler CM Punk called into WMGM and had the following to say about Ashley’s death:
“Tremendously sad way to go. Thoughts obviously go out to her family, especially her daughter.
It’s May. It’s Mental Health Month … if you’re depressed and things aren’t going your way, there’s no reason to feel alone.
Just reach out to somebody. Text a friend. Call somebody. There’s hotlines. There’s ways you can get help.”
