These photos go some way towards showing the amazing life led by bodybuilder and WWE star Nicole Bass. According to posts on her Facebook page, Bass suffered a heart attack. The Howard Stern Show mainstay was known for her muscular physique and for her appearances during the Attitude era on WWE television in 1999. At the time of her death, Bass was living in New York.
Her death was also confirmed by ECW star Tommy Dreamer who tweeted about Bass's passing. A lengthy post, written by Kristen Marrone, who says she was in a relationship with Bass, appeared on Bass's Facebook page on the night of February 16. It read in part:
"A few days ago Nicole got very sick. She was brought into the hospital and they did everything they could to help her. I have been sitting here with her in the room 24/7 since she got here making sure she was being given the best possible care. Today we learned that there is nothing else that can be done.
Nicole was an amazing woman. Strong not only on the outside but inside as well. Beautiful soul and kind heart. Many people knew Nicole but few ever got close enough to know the REAL woman that she was. I got to be one of the lucky few. Not only was she my soul mate and my girlfriend but she was my best friend, my teacher and my business partner.
I learned many valuable things from her and created many beautiful memories in the time we had together.
I would like to keep her page open for her loving fans and friends to share their photos and memories.
I just ask that you treat Nicole with the dignity and respect that she deserves.
Thank you to everyone that has been reaching out to and helping me through this very difficult time.
Nicole, I love you. I will always love you. "
