WWE Tough Enough winner Sara Lee dies aged 30

WWE Tough Enough winner Sara Lee has died aged 30, her mother has announced on social media. 

Lee won the 2015 edition of WWE’s Tough Enough to earn a contract with the company and was married to former WWE star Wesley Blake. 

Lee’s mother announced the death of her daughter on Facebook. 

The post read: “It is with heavy hearts we wanted to share that our Sara Weston has gone to be with Jesus. We are all in shock and arrangements are not complete. We ask that you respectfully let our family mourn. We all need prayers especially Cory and her children.” 

Wesley Blake’s real name is Cory Weston and the pair had two children together, daughter Piper aged five and a three-year-old son named Brady. Lee and Blake married in 2017. 

Her cause of death is yet to be confirmed by the authorities. 

Back in 2015, after winning a one-year contract with WWE, she made her debut during an NXT event in January of 2016, however, the event was not televised. 

She worked with the likes of SmackDown star Aliyah and the show’s reigning champion Liv Morgan. Lee also went in the ring with other stars such as Ilconics, Billie Kay and Peyton Royce. 

Prior to her release, her last fight was against Billie and Peyton when Lee teamed up with Liv. 

Tributes flooded in after the announcement of her death. 

One fan said: “Rest in peace Sara Lee I remember voting for her to win Tough Enough.” 

Another tweeted: “Sending Westin Blake and their children all the love in the world. This news about Sara Lee hurts my soul so much. I wish this wasn’t true.”

A third fan added: “I've just seen the impossibly sad Sara Lee news. 30 years old. A mother and a wife. My thoughts to Westin Blake, their children and the rest of her family and friends. Horrible.”

In her last social media post before her death, Lee posted a selfie with a caption that read: “Celebrating finally being healthy enough to go to the gym 2 days in a row, first ever sinus infection kicked my butt.”
