• Ashley Massaro’s Brother Stabbed To Death
Late WWE wrestler Ashley Massaro’s brother, Ronnie Massaro, was stabbed to death in a knife attack outside 2 Bros. Pizza in Riverhead, Long Island at 9:15 PM on Saturday, November 21.
Ronnie, who was 39 years old at the time of his death, had checked out of a rehab facility hours before the incident. The suspect reportedly fled uptown following the tragedy.
Ronnie’s friend, Keith Hanlon, said the following about the incident:
“He got out of rehab and got on the train. And that was it. Out of a program and on the train, and not even 12 hours later, he was gone.
He was ready to live life. Since his sister’s passing, I’d never noticed him have this voice. Something hit him. I really believe he started to accept things and understand what life was about.
I had my phone on battery saver, and I missed a FaceTime at 8:30 [p.m.], 8:29. And I feel guilty, because I feel like if I’d gotten him on FaceTime, he could have stopped for a few seconds. A few seconds could have changed everything.”
We here at WWF Old School/WrestleFeed extend our deepest condolences to the Massaro family during this tough time.
