Updates on Kana, Athena, and Sarah Stock signing with WWE
- Updated: September 2, 2015
According to the observer they have confirmation that Kana has been signed, or technically, is on the verge of being signed pending passing her medicals, which we believe are scheduled for October in Pittsburgh.
There may be one other indie name who will also be getting physicals at about that time, including Adrienne Reese, 26, or Athena from Shimmer and Shine. She just recently was trying to get a Stardom tour of Japan before October, which wasn’t going to happen, and in doing so said she was retiring from independent wrestling in October, wanted to do a tour of Stardom before that happened, and that coincides with a lot of rumors of her being WWE-bound.
Sarah Stock, who was Dark Angel in CMLL and Sarita in TNA, has been signed for a trainer position similar to that of Sara Amato, since Amato is doing more work now with the main roster. When Stock first started coming to the Performance Center to teach Lucha Libre moves to the women, we were told that they were not going to use her as a wrestler due to age, as she’s now 36, although she trains like a bodybuilder and looks a lot younger. She’s coming to Stardom in Japan in October, but it will be her wrestling farewell, so she’s likely to start at her new job in November
