File this under the most random news of the weekend.

As it appears, former WWE Diva Ashley Massaro found her scantily clad body gracing the cover of an old Ukrainian Playboy.

Massaro took to Twitter with the following Sunday afternoon:


Personally, I don't understand why she would be shocked, considering she posed for Playboy in 2007 and was the cover girl then. The fact is, Playboy is an international company and chances are when it has featured models, it has utilized them for the cover worldwide.

Even though there are some subtle differences, the most obvious being the language, the cover of the Ukrainian mag is exactly the same as the one used for the US edition.

Ultimately, Massaro is infamously known for purposefully giving out her real phone number live on Raw. The purpose was obvious, as she was utilizing it as a tool to sway votes to win the WWE Diva Search competition. In case you haven't seen the video, you can find it here and it's hilarious.

Fortunately, the gamble paid off, as she wound up winning the competition. Sadly, her WWE tenure ended amidst controversy. Rolling Stone alleged that she had became an upscale escort and was being investigated by the F.B.I.

Massaro denied the accusations and it was later discovered that another model with the same name had surfaced. Even with that information, the magazine stood by its story. Although, it seemed that this was the reason she asked for her release, the official story was that she left to take care of her then-ill daughter.

In the end, Massaro is currently semi-retired and occasionally takes part in live Indy events and special event signings.
