UPDATE: Pro Wrestling Sheet is now reporting that Nicole Bass has not yet passed away. According to the report, the friend of Nicole’s who notified the world that she had passed put the word out before Bass had actually died, because she felt as though she was already gone. The decision was made to take Bass off of life support because there’s nothing they can do to save her and she will reportedly be taken off life support Friday evening.

A friend of Nicole’s posted an update on the Nicole Bass Facebook page noting that doctors did everything they could to help her. She posted the following:
“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 <3″
Our condolences go out to the family, friends and fans of Nicole Bass around the world. May she rest in peace.
