Former WWE superstar Ashley Massaro was found unconcious in her home last Thursday morning and transported to the hospital were she was pronounced dead

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ Sports, that the 39-year-old was found hanging in an apparent suicide 

The 39-year-old was found unconscious inside of her Suffolk County, NY home early Thursday morning — and she was transported to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead. 

The death is being classified as “non-criminal.” 

She is survived by her daughter. 

Massaro is being laid to rest in Suffolk County. The WWE honored Massaro with a full screen “In Memory” slate on Sunday during the “Money in the Bank” pay-per-view event.

CM Punk called into WMGM on Friday and had heard Ashley had taken her own life (the manner of death had not been publicly disclosed). He implored anyone listening who’s struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts to get help.

“Tremendously sad way to go,” Punk said … “thoughts obviously go out to her family, especially her daughter.”

What a sad way to go out.  She isn’t the first, and unfortunately probably won’t be the last, former WWE wrestler to take their own life.

Whether it’s the rise and fall of being a star wrestler, or something with the punishment their bodies take, there is something that seems to be unique to suicide of relatively young former wrestlers.
