One of the top female wrestlers, signed by the then-WWF some two decades ago, Nicole Bass, reportedly died this past Friday. Cause of her death is said to be cardiac arrest.
She looked in great health till very recently and so when the news of her death first came out, people rubbished it thinking it another social media prank. But later they were forced to accept the report as it was confirmed by one of her closest friends on Bass’ Facebook page.
Her longtime friend, Kristen Marrone, in a long Facebook post while announcing Nicole Bass’ death said, “A few days ago Nicole got very sick…She was brought into the hospital and they did everything they could to help her. I have been sitting here with her in the room 24/7 since she got here making sure she was being given the best possible care. Today we learned that there is nothing else that can be done.” There are reports that 52-year old wrestler facing serious financial issues besides some health issues.
The 6-2 feet high wrestler used her imposing looks and fame from the Howard Stern show into a brief pro wrestling career. In the meantime a report said the message of her death was prematurely posted on Facebook because the friend “felt as though Nicole was already gone.” Marrone responded: “If its not been posted by me on her page or mine its nothing more than rumor. I will not be talking to anyone. Anything shared with her fans will be posted personally by myself to her official pages. Nicole kept her private life to herself. Respect that.”
