Let's take a look at 5 best moments of Ashley Massaro's career.
#5 Ashley debuts on Monday Night Raw
Thanks to Ashley's victory in the 2005 edition of WWE Diva Search, she bagged a one-year contract with WWE and headed over to the flagship show, Monday Night Raw.
Upon her arrival on the red show, Ashley was attacked by "Vince's Devils", consisting of Candice Michelle and Torrie Wilson. On the August 29th episode of Raw, Ashley lost her debut match in WWE to the third member of Vince's Devils, Victoria. The villains hounded her for weeks until Ashley brought in some help in the form of WWE Women's Champion Trish Stratus, who turned babyface in the process.
Although Ashley's debut didn't go as she had planned, she managed to hold her own in the coming weeks, and teamed up with Trish Stratus to defeat Victoria and Torrie Wilson at Unforgiven 2005.
