Ashley Massaro, a former WWE wrestler who passed away in 2019, accused former WWE CEO Vince McMahon of predatory behavior in a previously unreleased statement obtained by Vice News.

In the statement, Massaro claimed she was punished for rejecting McMahon by receiving bad scripts that tarnished her reputation. She described feeling uncomfortable as McMahon incessantly called her hotel and cell phones.

This statement was omitted from the affidavit published after her death, where she accused McMahon and top executives of covering up her rape on a military base in 2006, a claim denied by WWE initially but later confirmed by an attorney for John Laurinaitis.

Massaro also alleged witnessing McMahon engaging in intimate behavior with female wrestlers in the locker room and experiencing $exual harassment herself. She believed the demeaning scripts were intended to ruin her reputation, similar to what another female wrestler experienced before leaving WWE, though her name was withheld in the Vice report for privacy reasons.

You can read Ashley’s unreleased statement below:

“During my time with the WWE, I had observed Vince McMahon making-out with other divas in the locker room, but he never paid attention to me, and I assumed I was not his type. This changed after my Playboy cover was released.

I was fortunate enough to be allowed to fly on the company jet and stay at the same hotels as the executives for a period of time so that I could get home faster to spend more time with my daughter.

On one of these occasions, Vince was attempting to get me alone with him in his hotel room late at night and I felt extraordinarily uncomfortable. He began calling the hotel room phone and my cell phone nonstop. I called Kevin Dunn to explain the situation and he said I should tell Vince I was not feeling well and would see him on TV the next day, so I did.

Immediately after that night, Vince started writing my promos for me. Vince does not write promos for female wrestlers — that is the job of the creative department — and he certainly wouldn’t have, under any normal circumstances, written a promo for me. But he did, and the promos were written with the clear intention of ruining my career.

I brought the first script Vince wrote for me to the WWE employee in charge of Creative at the time, Michael Hayes, and he said, ‘you’re not saying this, who the [expletive] wrote this?’ and I told him that Vince did. He said, ‘Well kid, these are the breaks,’ meaning that Vince wanted to end my career and destroy my reputation on my way out.

He is known for this type of behavior and also did this to [REDACTED] upon her departure from WWE. In addition, after that night, each time I walk by him he would make vulgar $exual comments that were clearly designed to make me uncomfortable.”
