The family of Tough Winner Sara Lee has issued a new statement following her tragic passing at just thirty years old.
The wrestling world was stunned when the death of Sara Lee was announced by her mother with a message posted 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 Lee was married to Cory Weston – who most WWE fans will know from his time in the company competing as Wesley Blake. Together the couple has three young children.
A new statement has been released on behalf of the family by former NXT star Bull James on social media where both the Weston and Lee family thanked everyone for their support at this time:
“On behalf of the Weston and Lee family we would like to express our deepest gratitude for the love that has been shown toward Cory, Sara, and their beautiful children. Cory has taken a step back from social media but is blown away by the generosity everyone has shown. Through the darkest times you guys have been a ray of light. Thank you, will never be enough.”

Sara Lee was clearly on Bayley’s mind at Extreme Rules as The Role Model paid tribute to Lee during her Raw Women’s Championship match against Bianca Belair.
