• WWE Avoiding Comment On Report Of Vince McMahon Telling Ashley Massaro To Keep Quiet Regarding Rape
As we noted yesterday, TMZ Sports reported that former WWE Diva Ashley Massaro passed away by hanging herself.
An affidavit from Ashley Massaro reveals details about her claim of getting raped during a WWE tour in The Middle East.
Ashley noted that Vince McMahon told her to avoid publicly commenting on this incident as it wouldn’t turn out to be good for WWE’s partnership with the US Military and that “one bad experience” shouldn’t ruin the good work they were doing (tap here to read the complete statement).
David Bixenspan reached out to WWE for a comment on this report, but didn’t hear anything back.
I have reached out to a WWE spokesperson asking to clarify if they’re denying anything that Ashley swore to in the affidavit. The same spokesperson has not replied to texts from Sunday asking about the circumstances of which outlets they sent the “email” statement to on Friday.
