WWE had allegedly asked Massaro to remain silent about being sexually assaulted in 2007, and the story resurfaced following her tragic passing in 2019.
WWE later denied the accusations and issued a statement stating that Massaro attempted to make amends with the company over the lawsuit before her death.
The podcast, Ashley vs. WWE: The Story of Wrestler Ashley Massaro, runs for three hours and forty-one minutes and is hosted by journalist Isobel Thompson. It can be purchased for $7.95.
