The wrestling world tragically lost Ashley Massaro at only 39 years of age recently. In light of these events, Lillian Garcia set-up a GoFundMe account for Ashley’s teenage daughter. The funds will go to Ashley’s daughter’s education.
Mick Foley made a sizeable donation to kickstart the fund and other wrestlers who worked with or were otherwise friends with Ashley have donated.
Remembering Ashley Massaro
Ashley Massaro is being remembered as a very kind and loving person. She made her debut in the wrestling industry after winning the 2005 Diva Search. Her edgy style and attitude made her one of the most popular performers of the time.
The GoFundMe set up to assist in Ashley’s daughter’s education posted the following in rememberence:
“We, the Squared Circle Sisters who had the amazing honor of working with Ashley Massaro in the WWE, have come together to honor Ashley’s memory – and to create light and hope in the wake of tragedy. We all knew and loved Ashley and her beautiful spirit. Her smile radiated the entire locker room and arenas everywhere. We also got to know Ashley’s incredible daughter Alexa. As our way to show Lexi she is not alone, we have started this gofundme campaign to unite us all and show Lexi and her family our love.”
“Every dollar raised will go into an official New York State 529 college savings plan (technical schools, vocational schools and career colleges all included) to provide for Lexi’s continued education – which would have made Ashley so happy. We invite you to please watch the video we put together & join us by contributing to the cause. Let’s keep Ashley’s memory alive now and forever!! Ashley, thank you for touching our souls and being you! Lexi, please stay strong and know you can reach out to any of us for support! YOU ARE NOT ALONE! WE LOVE YOU!! – Your Squared Circle Sisters”
