Ashley Massaro was on the WWE roster from 2005-2008. According to court documents published by the Boston Globe, Massaro says she was sexually assaulted at a US military base. Massaro says that she was examined by a WWE physician after returning from Kuwait and she says that she reported the assault to WWE executives who she says met with her “to apologize for their negligence, but [they] persuaded her that it would be best not to report it to appropriate authorities.”
The former WWE diva is one of seven others that joined in the lawsuit that she received several concussions during her time in WWE, including one that caused her to be unconscious in the ring.
According to the lawsuit, she claims that she has been dealing with multiple behavioral changes since leaving the WWE in 2008, including developing a drug addition which the company helped her for by putting her in sponsored rehab. WWE provides free drug rehabilitation to any former talent that has been under contract with them.
The Boston Globe also reports that Massaro mentioned in the lawsuit that she is suffering from memory loss, migraines, anxiety, and depression. Thoee are all symptoms of CTE but CTE (as of now) can only be diagnosed after death. Massaro also says that she suffered a hairline fracture in her spine, two herniated discs, a shattered knuckle and an ankle fracture. There is also a claim that Vince McMahon told the backstage crew to saw off a cast from her hand so she could perform. The claim is that he ordered to have the cast removed several weeks before she was fully healed.
