Sara Lee has passed away at the age of 30 years old. She was the women’s Tough Enough winner in 2015.
Sara Lee Weston was married to former WWE superstar Wesley Blake (Cory Weston). The couple was married in 2017 and they have three young children.
The news of Sara’s passing was shared by her mother with this message on very sad message 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.”
The cause of death is unknown at this time.
There was an Instagram post by Sara two days ago where she wrote that she was “celebrating being healthy enough to go the gym 2 days in a row” while noting she had been dealing with a sinus infection.
A GoFundMe fundraiser has been started by former NXT wrestler Bull James (Dempsey) with every penny raised going to Cory, their three children and the family as they deal with this terrible loss.
“We’re all shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Tough Enough winner Sara Lee. As her loving husband, Cory, picks up the pieces and continues to raise their 3 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. – Bull”
Several notable wrestlers have already donated to the GoFundMe including Braun Strowman, Cody Rhodes, Alexa Bliss, Becky Lynch, Natalya, Matt & Chelsea Cardona, and more.
Alexa Bliss posted this lovely message from her wedding earlier this year.
