The Queen of Wrestling, Sara Del Rey, has revealed that ROH is hoping to launch a women’s division next year. Plus, the first ever SHIMMER Champion speaks about her “main focus and goal” which is to join WWE.
Speaking to us last night on our DD360 live radio show, Del Rey spoke about her recent trip wrestling in Australia, this weekend’s JoshiMania festivities, her status with Ring of Honor (Sara was surprised to find she’s no longer listed on the roster page at ROHwrestling.com) and her goal to join WWE.
Replay of the show, which also featured Impact Wrestling Knockout Brooke Tessmacher, can be caught here.
On her status with ROH: “I’d like to know as well! [Laughs] I have no idea. Once the Kings of Wrestling left, I understood I wasn’t going to be used for all the shows because mainly I was used in a managerial role. I knew that my presence would be limited in Ring of Honor. I think when I went to Japan a few months ago, I came back and I saw the new website and I was like, ‘Wow, that looks great!’ and then I went to the roster page and I was like, ‘Woah!’ It was just kind of a shock [to not see herself on there].”
On ROH looking to launch women’s division in 2012: “Right now, they’re really starting from scratch again just re-establishing the brand and the product with Sinclair. I’ve talked to them recently and they have hopes to start the women’s division up, hopefully next year sometime, and they definitely want to include me.”
Wanting to join WWE: “I haven’t been shy about saying that’s my next career goal [joining WWE]. I’ve been doing this nearly 11 years now and I just feel like that would be a very new, interesting challenge for me to be there. I’d love to be there and be a part of it. I think it’s awesome that the fans want to see it too. With the way storylines are going in WWE right now for the women, I think it’d be great. I’d fit in well with what’s going on now.”
“That’s my main focus and goal right now — just to get a shot [at WWE]. I’ve never done it. I don’t think I’ll be wrestling the rest of my life, so I’d like to do it before my wrestling career is over, so that’s my main my focus for the rest of 2011 and 2012.”
