Professional wrestling career[edit]

World Wrestling Entertainment (2008-2010)[edit]

Developmental territories (2008-2009)[edit]

Angela tried out for the 2007 Diva Search, but she didn't become one of the finalists. In February 2008, WWE signed Angela to a developmental deal and was shown briefly on OVW with Shawn Spears. Fong debuted on FCW in early 2008.[1] She initially started as a valet for The Puerto Rican Nightmares (Eddie Colón and Eric Perez) where they feuded with Nick Nemeth, Brad Allen and Taryn Terrell. The Puerto Rican Nightmares broke up and Angela started to wrestle more.

On the February 5 episode of FCW Television tapings, Angela defeated Alicia Fox in the finals to become the first ever Queen of FCW.[1] Fong and Rosa Mendes established a feud when Mendes tried to steal the crown from Angela.[1] On April 19, 2009 edition of FCW Television, Rosa Mendes challenged Angela for the Queen of FCW Crown only to be attacked by Doctor X, so she won by DQ.[1] After defending the crown for seven months, Fong was defeated by Mia Mancini.

During her time on ECW/NXT Fong still would make appearances in FCW including competing in a tournament for the new FCW Divas Championship, but lost to Naomi Night in the second round. On September 15, 2009, Fong debuted as "Savannah" on ECW as a backstage interviewer. Fong spent most of her time as the ECW backstage interviewer, until ECW ring announcer Lauren Mayhew departed from the WWE which Fong took over the role as the ring announcer of the show. She was also a lumberjill during Michelle McCool and Melina match on the October 2, 2009 episode of SmackDown!, namely during the 10th anniversary of SmackDown.

After the ECW brand was closed down on February 16, 2010 and was replaced with WWE NXT, she joined the WWE NXT broadcast team as the official ring announcer for the first season of WWE NXT. On June 23, 2010, Fong was released from her WWE contract.

Independent circuit (2010-2013)[edit]

As of July 10, 2010, Fong has since started selling signed memorabilia on eBay.[3] She also revealed via her Twitter account on September 22, 2010, that she would become an MMA dancer for the organization, Xtreme Fighting Championships, dancing in the XFC Cage Dolls.[4] Fong began wrestling in the independent circuit, under her real name and competed in her Post-WWE match in the organization, Ground Breaking Pro Wrestling on September 26, 2010, when she defeated Randi West to win the vacant GBPW Ladies Championship and became its first champion.[1][5]

Sometime after this, she never continued on her independent scene path in a great deal. Although, she did occasionally appear in matches on the SLAMmin Ladies website. On May 4, 2013, Fong defeated Miyako Matsumoto in a match for Ice Ribbon.[1][6]
