Before Ashley Massaro passed away, she was involved in a class-action lawsuit against WWE. The affidavit in that lawsuit included a detailed account of her getting raped.
In the affidavit, Massaro went into detail explaining the incident. She went to the Middle East in order to support the troops. Massaro said she was drugged and raped by a member of the US Military during that trip. Vince McMahon apparently told her to keep quiet regarding the incident as the company apparently didn’t want to sour the relationship between them and the military.
WWE has denied the allegations and claimed that a meeting between Massaro and Vince McMahon never took place, or were they informed of the incident.
WWE is saddened by the death of Ashley Massaro, and we reiterate our condolences to her family. However, we regret that her attorney Konstantine Kyros, who filed multiple cases against WWE, lost all of them, and was sanctioned multiple times by the Court for repeated misconduct and false allegations, is using Ashley’s death to further his malicious campaign against WWE by releasing an affidavit that she submitted to the Court and later apologized to WWE for being involved with, so we wish to make certain things crystal clear.
At no time was Vince McMahon or the management of WWE ever informed by Ashley Massaro or anybody else that she had been sexually assaulted, drugged, raped or sodomized by a military doctor with a nurse standing guard while on a goodwill tour in 2007 to U.S. military bases in Kuwait. In fact, if she ever articulated such a claim to WWE, we would have reported it immediately to the Base Commander.
At no time was there ever a meeting with Vince McMahon, Kevin Dunn, John Laurinaitis or other company executives in which she told them of such a claim and was instructed to keep it quiet.
Unfortunately, Ashley Massaro is no longer with us to talk about her side of things.
