Who Is: Sara Del Rey

Sara Amato, better known by her ring name Sara Del Rey, is an American professional wrestler who was a mainstay for Chikara and SHIMMER, but also appeared for many other independent wrestling promotions in the United States, including Ring of Honor, IWA Mid-South and All Pro Wrestling, as well as Mexico’s Lucha Libre Femenil. She’s been the Women’s Champion in Canadian Wrestling Revolution, Impact Zone Wrestling, Jersey All-Pro Wrestling, Ohio Championship Wrestling, Remix Pro Wrestling, and SHIMMER, as well as a top talent in Chikara, Pro Wrestling WORLD-1, and Ring of Honor.

In addition to her work as Sara Del Rey, Amato has also been featured in various taped matches, competing under a mask and using the name Nic Grimes, mainly for the short-lived MTV wrestling promotion and television show Wrestling Society X. Yup; MTV has a wrestling promotion. That was a thing. Anyway, Del Rey was crowned the inaugural Shimmer Champion and co-holder of the Shimmer Tag Team Championship with Courtney Rush, making her the promotion’s first and as-of-press-time the only double champion in Shimmer history. In 2012, Del Rey became only the fourth woman to make it to Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s list of top wrestlers in the world. So yeah; she’s GOOOOOOD. On July 9, 2012, Del Ray was signed to World Wrestling Entertainment, working at the WWE Performance Center, where she is now the center’s first female trainer and is training up-and-coming WWE Divas for WWE’s developmental territory and television show, NXT Wrestling.
