Former WWE wrestler Melissa Coates handed away on June 23. She was 50-year-old and the reason for her loss of life is but to be ascertained. As per a number of media experiences, the previous wrestler had a significant operation on her leg, which was amputated with a view to forestall extreme blood clots on her arteries.

Before launching herself within the skilled wrestling circuit in 2002, Coates was a bodybuilder and a health mannequin. She grew to become part of the WWE roster in 2005.

Thinking about Melissa Coates immediately. I’m unhappy to listen to of her passing. Melissa was at all times so sort to everybody she met and had an enormous coronary heart. She mentioned that this was her favourite image of herself. You are liked and remembered, Melissa. pic.twitter.com/7JyNRx9cqi
