This is just awful news – Ashley Massaro is gone. She was only 39. She lived in the same town as me…I loved seeing her around. She was always so nice…and now shes gone. #RIPAshleyMassaro pic.twitter.com/wOUY4gsTQo

Ashley just started training at NYWC & was SO excited about wrestling again.
Always had a smile on her face & was one of the most down to Earth people you could meet.
If youre going through tough times, dont be afraid to reach out for help.
RIP Ashley Massaro

I have no words. Ashley was my tag partner at Wrestlemania. My sometimes road wife. We did countless photo shoots and press days together. It seems like yesterday Ashley was a major part of my life and then our worlds changed and now she is gone. Im heartbroken for her family. https://t.co/QTcNxN3P0K pic.twitter.com/olaTWKD9JS

Stunned to hear of the untimely passing of #AshleyMassaro
The first time I met her, she went out of her way to say hello, and always had kind and encouraging words since.
We recently discussed working together. My heart breaks for her daughter. Rest in Love and Power, Ashley. pic.twitter.com/Pq4tk5Ywe6
