Former ECW and WWF superstar Nicole Bass has sadly passed away. She was 52.
Fans of The Attitude Era will recall the monstrous presence of Nicole Bass making her debut in March of 1999. Bass was WWF Women’s Champion Sable’s bodyguard at WrestleMania 15, and was briefly involved in a feud against Debra. Bass also had a short-lived but hysterical run with Val Venis, in which she was Val’s female counterpart. That is, until she whacked him with Jeff Jarrett’s guitar after losing a bikini contest to Debra.
Bass and Ivory began teaming for a short time before Bass left the WWF.
Prior to her run in the WWF, Nicole was a member of the ECW roster,
hanging primarily with Justin Credible, Chastity, and Jason.
Nicole’s girlfriend posted the following on her Facebook page:
Dignity and Respect. 2 things every person on this planet deserves. 2 things very important to Nicole Bass. The past few days I, Kristen Marrone,
have been posting to my girlfriends pages to try and keep her very
personal life private. Rumors have been spreading around the internet
about her health. A few days ago we didn’t know all of what was going on
so I have been trying to keep it quiet until we had answers. Nicole
values her privacy and I Respect that. Before anyone tries to take the story and twist it up and make it ugly I want to put it out there in a Respectful way.
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. I will always be yours and you will always be <3 mine
Audio recordings of various school or university shooters. Note: Elliot Rodger isn’t necessarily a school/university shooter, as his attack was only on the campus, and three of his victims were stabbed to death, not shot. Still fits into the theme, in my opinion.
