In a recent revelation, Amazon’s Audible has unveiled a gripping investigative podcast that delves deep into the life and allegations of WWE superstar, Ashley Massaro.
The podcast, titled Ashley vs. WWE: The Story of Wrestler Ashley Massaro, promises to shed light on the events leading up to her tragic demise in 2019.
Ashley Massaro’s Allegations Against WWE
Ashley Massaro’s relationship with WWE has been fraught with controversy. The superstar had previously accused WWE of asking her to remain silent about a sexual assault incident that allegedly took place in 2007.
This story gained significant traction after her unfortunate passing in 2019. However, WWE has since refuted these claims, stating that Massaro had tried to reconcile with the company over the lawsuit before her untimely death.
