‘WWE Tough Enough’ Winner Dead At 30

“WWE: Tough Enough” winner Sara Lee passed away on Thursday at the age of 30, her family confirmed in a heartbreaking post on social media.

“It is with heavy hearts we wanted to share that our Sara Weston has gone to be with Jesus,” Terri Lee wrote. “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.”

Lee left behind a husband, Cory James Weston — who previously wrestled with the WWE under the name Wesley Blake — and three children, two of whom she shares with Weston.

She made her own mark on the wrestling circuit when she became the surprise winner in the sixth season of “WWE: Tough Enough” in 2015 — coming back from potential elimination five times — a win that scored her $250,000 and a one-year contract with the company. She was later released from that contract in 2016, but reportedly continued to train on her own.

“Sara Lee, who won the last season of WWE Tough Enough in 2015, has sadly passed away at just 30. She only said one day ago how she was feeling well enough after a sinus infection to go to the gym. She was married to Wesley Blake & the pair have young children together. So sad,” Louis Dangoor posted.
