Ashley Massaro submitted an affidavit in 2017 in the course of a lawsuit between the two which claimed a series of serious allegations.
In the 15 page affidavit, Massaro claims that she was drugged whilst on tour with WWE in a US-Kuwait Military base in 2007. She says that she was subsequently locked in a room whilst unable to move and was subsequently raped and sodomised. She goes on to attest that several people were alerted to this happening, including Vince McMahon, Kevin Dunn and other executives, Massaro says she was then asked to keep it quiet.
In the affidavit Ashley claims that:
“Vince did at least apologize for what I went through, but then stressed that if I disclosed this incident it would ruin the relationship between the WWE and the US Military. He told me not to let one bad experience ruin the good work they were doing“

WWE has responded to these allegations made by Massaro and made public just days after her death by lawyer Konstantine Kyros, who has been targeting WWE in numerous lawsuits for years, with the following statement:
“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.
1) 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.
2) 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.”
Thank you to WON for WWE’s statement.
