Ashley Marie Massaro[2] (born May 26, 1979) is an American model and professional wrestler best known for her work with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). She first joined WWE after winning the Raw Diva Search 2005. After an initial rivalry with Vince's Devils, an alliance of female villains, Massaro became the valet for the WWE Tag Team Champions Paul London and Brian Kendrick. Her most high profile matches were a WWE Women's Championship match against Melina Perez at WrestleMania 23 and a Playboy Bunnymania Lumberjill match at WrestleMania XXIV. She left WWE in mid-2008.

Prior to joining WWE, Massaro was Miss Hawaiian Tropic USA in 2002 and Miss Hawaiian Tropic Canada. During her tenure in the company, she has appeared on the covers of several magazines, including the April 2007 issue of Playboy. She has made guest appearances on several television shows and performed in music videos.


World Wrestling Entertainment (2005-2008)

Debut and early feuds (2005–2006)

Massaro initially found out about World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) 2005 Raw Diva Search when she met a WWE casting director during a swimsuit pageant.[6] After beating the seven other chosen finalists, Massaro was declared the winner on the August 15, 2005 edition of Raw.[7] Her winnings included $250,000 and a one year contract with WWE.[2][7]

A week later on Raw, Candice Michelle and Torrie Wilson attacked Massaro after pretending to welcome her to Raw.[6][8] Candice Michelle and Wilson were soon joined by Victoria in their feud with Massaro. Victoria defeated Massaro in her in-ring debut match.[9] Massaro was later joined by the returning Trish Stratus, who helped Massaro fend off attacks from the three Divas. The pair defeated the trio—who became known as the Ladies in Pink (and later Vince's Devils)—on several occasions including at Unforgiven and at WWE Homecoming in a 3-on-2 Bra and Panties match.[10] Massaro continued to wrestle matches through the rest of 2005 and was involved in the annual Fulfill Your Fantasy Diva Battle Royal at Taboo Tuesday for her first shot at the WWE Women's Championship.[11] Massaro eliminated Candice Michelle before being eliminated by Victoria.[11] At New Year's Revolution in January, Massaro won the first ever Bra and Panties Gauntlet match by being the final Diva left still wearing her clothes.[12] Following WWE tradition, to please the fans, she removed them herself before making her exit.[12]

Through the early part of 2006, Massaro became the victim of a series of attacks from Mickie James.[13] At the Royal Rumble, James defeated Massaro with then Women's Champion, Trish Stratus, as the special guest referee.[14] Massaro got her revenge one week later by pinning James in the rematch on Raw.[15] During the February 20, 2006 edition of Raw, however, Massaro suffered a fractured left fibula while being eliminated from the Women's Battle Royal,[16] and her feud with James was cut short.[13] She underwent surgery to insert a five-inch metal plate and eight screws into her leg.[6] During her recovery, Massaro still occasionally appeared on Raw as part of the Stratus/James feud, albeit in a non-active role.[13]

She returned to television on June 2, now on SmackDown!, as a special guest commentator during the Kristal Marshall versus Jillian Hall match.[17] Massaro later aligned herself with Hall, and they feuded with Michelle McCool and Marshall. Massaro won her SmackDown! debut match on July 21, when she teamed up with Hall to defeat McCool and Marshall.[18] At The Great American Bash, Massaro won the Fatal Four-Way Bra and Panties match by removing all of her opponents clothing.[19] On the August 4 edition of SmackDown!, Massaro broke her knuckle in a match against Marshall.[20][21]

London and Kendrick; release (2006–2008)

Massaro recovered from her injury and returned to the ring on the September 8, 2006 edition of SmackDown! where she, Paul London, and Brian Kendrick defeated Idol Stevens, K.C. James and Michelle McCool in a Six-Person Mixed Tag Team match.[22] Following the victory, Massaro became the valet for London and Kendrick, accompanying them to the ring for their matches on SmackDown! and pay-per-views.[13]

During the February 16, 2007 edition of SmackDown!, Massaro unveiled her Playboy cover.[23][24] Surrounding the release of the magazine, Massaro engaged in a feud with Jillian Hall, who was jealous over the attention Massaro received due to the Playboy cover.[6] At No Way Out, Massaro won the first ever Diva Invitational by removing her top to reveal her breasts which were covered with Playboy bunny pasties.[25] Massaro also began a feud with then WWE Women's Champion, Raw's Melina, who was angry over the publicity Massaro had been receiving because of the cover.[26] On an episode of SmackDown!, the rivalry was taken to the next level when a catfight broke out between the Divas on the inaugural edition of Miz TV.[26] At WrestleMania 23, Melina defeated Massaro in a LumberJill match to retain her title.[13][27]

After WrestleMania, Massaro continued as a valet for WWE Tag Team Champions Paul London and Brian Kendrick.[1] In storyline, on the April 13 episode of SmackDown!, Massaro was attacked by Jillian Hall.[28] In reality, Massaro had loosened a screw in her ankle, which had been inserted the previous year after she legitimately fractured her tibia and fibula while in a battle royal.[6][29] Massaro returned, but it was short lived when on the June 8 edition of SmackDown!, Massaro was suspended indefinitely after accidentally spilling Mr. McMahon's coffee on him.[6][30] In reality, Massaro was taking time off to participate on the show Survivor.[13]

Massaro returned on January 7, 2008 to the Raw brand, winning a Divas Lingerie Pillow Fight against Maria, Jillian Hall, Melina, and Mickie James.[31] Massaro replaced Candice Michelle, who was out with an injury, in the Playboy Bunnymania Lumberjack match at WrestleMania XXIV alongside Maria, losing to Beth Phoenix and Melina.[32] Massaro also participated in a 12 Diva Tag Team match at Backlash, but her team lost.[13] Massaro was released from her WWE contract on July 9, 2008.[33] A week prior to her release, she announced that she had asked to be let go from her contract due to her daughter being sick.[13]

She has several tattoos, including a black and pink nautical star on the back of both of her elbows;[6] a pink and red dragon surrounding kanji lettering that translates to 'Trust No One' going down the right side of her torso;[46] symbols on the small of her lower back; and a butterfly on her right hip.
