• Paige, Alexa Bliss, Mick Foley & More React To Sara Lee’s Death
Sara Lee, who was the female winner of the Season 6 of WWE Tough Enough in 2015, has passed away.
She was 30 years old. She married former WWE wrestler Wesley Blake in 2017 and they have 3 children.
During her time in WWE (after earning a one-year contract worth $250,000), she only worked a few matches in NXT, before being released in 2016.
Former WWE wrestler Bull James started the “Sara Lee Memorial Fund” on GoFundMe and over $60,000 have been raised so far, which will go to Sara’s husband and children.
Below is how the wrestling world reacted to her death:
Alexa Bliss: We love you Sara. So heartbreaking. Please keep Cory & their family in your thoughts and prayers 🖤

Cash Wheeler: Some days all the fighting and arguing over wrestling seems so silly and trivial. Today is without a doubt one of those days. Go see family and friends. Tell people you love them. Appreciate the things you take for granted and appreciate the good things. Love y’all.
Nikki A.S.H: You were so good in so many ways. You loved your family and friends so much. You were so giving, warm and selfless. You made me giggle. No matter how long we went without seeing each other, we would always pick up right where we left. I love you Sara.
