Quote Former WWE superstar Ashley Massaro -- who later competed on 'Survivor' -- has died, TMZ Sports has learned. She was only 39. 

Officials tell us ... Massaro was transported from her home in Suffolk County, NY to a nearby hospital where she died early Thursday morning. 

Officials would not reveal the cause of death at this point, but we're told it's being classified as "non-criminal."

Massaro famously won the WWE's "2005 Raw Diva Search" -- which included a $250,000 1-year contract. 

She went on to become a valet for WWE tag team champions Paul London and Brian Kendrick

Her most high-profile matches including a WWE Women's Championship against Melina at Wrestlemania 23 in 2007 ... and a Playboy BunnyMania LumberJill match at Wrestlemania 24 the following year.

Massaro appeared on "Survivor: China" in 2007 -- but she was voted off on the second episode of that series. 

She also appeared on the April 2007 cover of Playboy Magazine, which she revealed on an episode of "Smackdown."

She later cut ties with WWE in 2008. She later returned for a stint with a lesser known pro wrestling company in 2017. 

This is truly unexpected (considering the Ric Flair news from earlier) and also very sad. I was instantly a fan when she started her run with the company in the mid 2000s. With her energy, punk-ish attitude, manner, her Sable-esque moment at a early 2007 pay per view, and then her pyro that they eventually gave her, she was just so easy to get behind. I also know that she was working on making a comeback in the business.

She will for sure be missed.

I'd never even heard of her. Her whole run took place while I wasn't watching. To hear people talk about her now, she was apparently pretty good.

Have the released a cause of death yet?

Not that I know of Rico but based on articles I've read - suicide is what it seems

I don't remember anything about her wrestling ability, she was a Diva Search winner wasnt she? I think she may have done a Playboy spread while in WWE too. 

She's younger than me, far too young for her life to be over. RIP.

It's sad that suicide has got someone else far too young, with so much more life left to live.

Back in her Playboy days she was stunning. Then she spoilt herself by going beyond a boobjob and turning into a plastic barbie doll scared of the ageing process.

Her wrestling ability wasn't great but she wasn't alone in that era.
