The young wrestler’s death was confirmed in a heartbreaking statement from her mother who said her 30-year-old daughter had “gone to be with Jesus”. Sara leaves behind her husband, fellow WWE star Wesley Blake (real name Cory Weston) and their children: Piper, five, and Brady, three, and a one-year-old boy.

Sara is best known as a professional wrestler and the winner of the sixth series of the WWE reality competition, Tough Enough.

Her mum penned on Facebook: “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.”

Sara’s cause of death has not been confirmed.

Tributes have been flying in for the star while fellow wrestlers and fans have already raised £52k ($59k) to help her family. 

WWE’s Bull Smith wrote on the fundraising page: “We’re all shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Sara Lee.  

“As her loving husband, Cory, picks up the pieces and continues to raise their three children, the last thing anyone in that position wants to be worried about is money and paying for a funeral and everything else that comes along with it.

“The wrestling community has always been one to come together in the wake of tragedy and this is no different. Every penny raised from this will go directly to Cory and the kids. Thank you all in advance. RIP Sara, you were one of the good ones.”
