Former WWE wrestler Sara Lee has died at the age of 30, her family has announced, saying they are “in shock” over her passing.
Lee’s mother, Terri, announced his death Thursday in a post on her Facebook page, but did not provide any details on the cause of death.
“It is with heavy hearts that we wanted to share that our Sara Weston has gone to join Jesus.”
Lee won the sixth season of WWE reality competition “Tough Enough” in August 2015.
Just a day before her mother announced her death, Lee posted a photo of herself in gym gear on her Instagram account and wrote, “Celebrating finally being healthy enough to hit the gym 2 days in a row.” She added that “the very first sinus infection kicked my butt”.
The WWE star’s mother said the family was “in shock”. She said: “We are all in shock and the arrangements are not complete. We respectfully ask that you leave our family to mourn. We all need prayers, especially Cory and her children.
For the past five years, Lee has continued his wrestling training in Orlando, Florida. She was married to former WWE Superstar Wesley Blake (real name Cory Weston) – they married in December 2017 – and they have three children, including a baby boy born in August last year.
His fans and followers are also mourning his death. A social media commenter wrote: “This has been a complete shock. Rest well Sara!” Another said: “Rest in peace beautiful, was taken from us way too soon.”
“Gone too soon. We will miss you,” another follower posted on Instagram.
Others offered their condolences to the family. One wrote on Twitter: “This is a heartbreaking tragedy. Sending love to his family. A very sweet person with whom I had the pleasure of knowing and working.
Another wrote: “No tweet or amount of words can bring this beautiful human back, but my whole heart goes out to @TheWestinBlake and their family. Sara Lee will be greatly missed.
