Sara Amato (born November 13, 1980) is an American professional wrestler better known by her ring name Sara Del Rey. She was a mainstay for Chikara[5] and Shimmer,[6] but also appeared for many other independent promotions in the United States, including Ring of Honor, IWA Mid-South and All Pro Wrestling,[3] as well as Mexico's Lucha Libre Femenil.[5] Del Rey has also taped several matches, competing under a mask and using the name Nic Grimes, for the MTV promotion Wrestling Society X.[5] Del Rey was the inaugural Shimmer Champion and co-holder of the Shimmer Tag Team Championship with Courtney Rush, making her the promotion's first double champion. In 2012, Del Rey became only the fourth woman to make it to Pro Wrestling Illustrated's list of top 500 wrestlers in the world.[7] She is currently employed by WWE as the Assistant Head Coach of NXT,[8] based at the WWE Performance Center.

Early life[edit]

As a child, Amato considered herself a fan of wrestling, citing Hulk Hogan & The Ultimate Warrior as two of her favorites due to their high energy characters and matches.[1][3] She did not watch it for several years, but became interested again during high school. Sara admits that in high school, she was 'really shy and kind of awkward and scared of social situations,' which made her doubt whether she would actually make it as a Professional Wrestler[1][3] She briefly attended college following her graduation from high school, but disliked it and decided to become a professional wrestler instead.[1] She initially trained with All Pro Wrestling's boot camp.[3] In the beginning, Amato had to spend hours training, as wrestling did not come naturally to her.[6] She went on to train in Japan.[1]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Japan and Mexico; other promotions (2002–2012)[edit]

In 2002, she tried out for ARSION, and she considers it a highlight of her career.[5]

In early 2005, she won Impact Zone Wrestling's Women's Championship by defeating Adrenelyn on February 15.[5][9] Later in 2005, she toured Japan and released a video that depicts six of those battles entitled "Sara Del Rey Japan Tour 2005". She wrestled in Mexico using the gimmick "The American Angel", in which she wore a wrestling mask.[1] She was unmasked in a match in the Lucha Libre Femenil promotion on December 16, 2005.[5] She later donned a mask once again as Nic Grimes, the storyline sister of Vic Grimes for Wrestling Society X.[1][5]

On September 5, 2009, Del Rey took part at the debut show of NCW Femmes Fatales, where she defeated Cherry Bomb with the Royal Butterfly. Later in the night, after LuFisto's match, she attacked the owner of the promotion and challenged her to a match at the next show.[10] Del Rey took part in the tournament to determine the inaugural NCW FF Champion, but lost to LuFisto in the first round on June 5, 2010.[11]

Shimmer Women Athletes (2005–2012)[edit]

Del Rey appeared on Shimmer Women Athletes's inaugural show in 2005, where she wrestled Mercedes Martinez to a twenty minute time limit draw in a match that earned a standing ovation from the crowd.[1][12] As part of Volume 2, she won a four-way elimination match against Daizee Haze, Lacey, and Martinez, last eliminating Haze with her Royal Butterfly.[12] On February 12, 2006 she was able to defeat first Daizee Haze in the Main Event of Volume 3 with a Bridging German Suplex and then Rain as part of Volume 4 with her Royal Butterfly.[13] In the Main Event of Volume 5 Sara Del Rey finally pinned Mercedes Martinez in a Single Match.

As part of Volume 12 she then defeated Sarah Stock in roughly 20 minutes and in the finals she wrote history by defeating Lacey and becoming the First Ever SHIMMER Champion. Later in the night she teamed with Nikki Roxx to defeat the team of The Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew.[17] She made her first title defense in SHIMMER against Lacey in a Rematch from Volume 12 on Volume 14 in a match that lasted about 30 minutes.[18] She continued her Winning Streak by defeating Amazing Kong as part of Volume 15 and "Dark Angel" Sarah Stock in a Two Outs of Three Falls Match as part of Volume 16.[19] She suffered a Tag Team Loss on Volume 17 as the team of MsChif and Cheerleader Melissa was able to defeat Sara Del Rey and Allison Danger.

Chikara (2006–2012)[edit]

Del Rey appearing for Chikara in 2012.

Del Rey had been wrestling for Philadelphia–based Chikara since May 2006, mainly as a face.[2] In November 2009 she was placed in her first major storyline in the company, when she turned heel and aligned herself with Claudio Castagnoli, Ares, Daizee Haze, Pinkie Sanchez, Tim Donst and Tursas to form the stable Bruderschaft des Kreuzes (BDK).[26] The stable has since been joined by Lince Dorado and Delirious.[27][28] While in BDK Del Rey began regularly teaming with Haze and together the two of them picked up victories over tag teams such as The Osirian Portal (Amasis and Ophidian),[27] Los Ice Creams (El Hijo del Ice Cream and Ice Cream, Jr.),[29] The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield and Sugar Dunkerton),[28] Amazing Kong and Raisha Saeed,[30] and Mike Quackenbush and Jigsaw.[31] On September 19, 2010, Del Rey wrestled Japanese joshi legend Manami Toyota in only her second match on American soil, when she and Claudio Castagnoli were defeated in a tag team match by Toyota and Mike Quackenbush.[32] On October 23 Del Rey represented BDK in the torneo cibernetico match, where they faced a team of Chikara originals. She was eliminated from the match by Eddie Kingston.[33] The following day Del Rey and Haze defeated the Super Smash Bros. (Player Uno and Player Dos) in a tag team match to pick up their third straight victory and, as the first all–female tag team, earn the right to challenge for the Chikara Campeonatos de Parejas (tag team championship), at the time held by their stablemates Ares and Claudio Castagnoli.[34] However, Del Rey and Haze never got to cash in their points as Ares and Castagnoli ordered them to defend them in a four–way elimination match on November 21, where they ended up being eliminated by Mike Quackenbush and Jigsaw and losing all of their points.[35] In May 2011, Del Rey entered the 12 Large: Summit to determine the first ever Chikara Grand Champion. On July 31, Del Rey scored an upset win over BDK leader Claudio Castagnoli in a tournament match, after which both she and Daizee Haze were attacked by Castagnoli.[36] On August 3, Del Rey announced her resignation from BDK.[37] On October 7, Del Rey was eliminated from the 12 Large: Summit, when she was defeated by Mike Quackenbush.[38] On November 12, Del Rey was part of Team Hallowicked in the eighth annual torneo cibernetico, facing a team of members of BDK and The Batiri. Del Rey eventually won the match by pinning her former stablemate Tim Donst.[39] During December's JoshiMania weekend, Del Rey picked up big wins over Japanese wrestlers Aja Kong, Tsubasa Kuragaki and Ayako Hamada.[39] In early 2012, Del Rey started feuding the Batiri stable, which culminated on June 2 at the Chikarasaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur pay-per-view, where Del Rey and Saturyne defeated the Batiri via disqualification in a two-on-three handicap match.[39] On July 28, Del Rey received her first shot at the Chikara Grand Championship, but was unable to dethrone the defending champion, Eddie Kingston.[39] The following day, Del Rey was defeated by Icarus in her Chikara farewell match.[39]

Ring of Honor (2006–2012)[edit]

In 2006, Del Rey feuded with Daizee Haze,[5] whom she defeated on June 3, 2006 on a Ring of Honor (ROH) show.[9] She was part of the team, the Dangerous Angels, with Allison Danger, and the two competed as a team in ROH.[5] One of the few female mainstays of Ring of Honor, Del Rey was a member of Sweet & Sour Inc., a faction of wrestlers managed by Larry Sweeney.[1] During her time in the faction, she was paired with Chris Hero by Sweeney and dubbed the "Intergender Heavyweight Tag Team Champions", though in reality the "titles" were never recognized by ROH. She walked out of the faction after Sweeney interrupted a match between her and Daizee Haze, on the April 11 Ring of Honor show and berated her. On the next Ring of Honor show which took place the very next day, Sweeney claimed, in storyline, that he was "grooming" Del Rey for World Wrestling Entertainment, and she responded by saying she was a wrestler and not a diva. She returned as a "proud member" of Sweet & Sour Inc. at the May 9 Ring of Honor show, sporting a new look. After Sweeney's departure from ROH, Del Rey followed Hero and became a member of The Kings of Wrestling.
