Los Angeles: Nicole Bass’ death has shocked her fans across the US and elsewhere. A very long time member of Howard Stern’s Wack Pack crew, she died at the age of just 52. Nicole Bass cause of death is said to be heart attack.
The news of Nicole Bass’ death came so suddenly that many people thought it was just another social media prank. News of well-known personalities’ sudden deaths are deliberately spread by many to get a few likes and get into prominence on social media. Her fans’ initial response was that it was merely one of those pranks and nothing else.
Nonetheless, the news was confirmed by Howard Stern Show and Kristen Marrone, a friend in a statement on her Facebook page said, “A few days ago Nicole got very sick,” Marrone said on Facebook. “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.”
Reports suggest that the professional bodybuilder and wrestler died at around 8:40 p.m. Friday at a hospital in New York. Nicole Bass cause of death was not immediately known, though reports suggest that she was put on life support after being taken to the hospital. Nicole’s first national exposure came via Howard Stern. A contestant on The Miss Howard Stern New Year’s Eve Pageant in 1993, she would go on to make countless appearances on Stern’s radio show.
Bass debuted in Extreme Championship Wrestling during the first half of 1998. She aligned herself with Justin Credible, Chastity and Jason. She participated in feuds with Tommy Dreamer, Mikey Whipwreck and Beulah McGillicutty.
The massive 6.2 feet, wrestler joined World Wrestling Federation, debuting as Sable’s bodyguard at WrestleMania XV on March 28, 1999. She became involved in an extended feud with Debra McMichael, which culminated in a mixed tag match pitting Bass and Val Venis against Jeff Jarrett and Debra at the 1999 WWF Over the Edge. Bass is one of three Howard Stern “Wack Pack” members who have died in the past year. Joey Boots, best known for helping to popularize the nickname “Baba Booey,” died last December. Another popular figure, George “Crackhead Bob” Harvey, also died in 2016.

Nicole was an amazing woman. Strong not only on the outside but inside as well. Beautiful soul and kind heart. Many people knew Nicole but few ever got close enough to know the REAL woman that she was. I got to be one of the lucky few. Not only was she my soul mate and my girlfriend but she was my best friend, my teacher and my business partner.
I learned many valuable things from her and created many beautiful memories in the time we had together.
I would like to keep her page open for her loving fans and friends to share their photos and memories.
I just ask that you treat Nicole with the dignity and respect that she deserves.
Thank you to everyone that has been reaching out to and helping me through this very difficult time.
Nicole, I love you. I will always love you.
