Sarah Stock (born March 4, 1979) is a Canadian professional wrestler. She currently competes for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, where

she is a former Knockout Tag Team Champion, under the ring name Sarita and for Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) under the ring

name Dark Angel. Stock has wrestled for many independent promotions throughout North America, facing both male and female wrestlers.

Stock was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and graduated from Winnipeg's St. John's-Ravenscourt School.[4] She then attended the University of Manitoba, where she was an honors student and completed a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in chemistry. Stock is trilingual, with the ability to speak English, French, and Spanish.

 

Stock has always been interested in athletics. She practiced and competed in Muay Thai kickboxing for several years before entering profressional wrestling. She has also participated in soccer, track and field, cross country running and horseback riding. Stock has stated that, if she had to pick a career outside of wrestling, she would consider the field of Sports Psychology and Nutrition.

 

Stock began training as a professional wrestler in Winnipeg, Manitoba's Top Rope Championship Wrestling. She trained for five weeks before an open spot on the company's tour gave her the opportunity to compete. She debuted in the Northwest Territories on February 22, 2002. She wrestled for Can-Am Wrestling in early 2002 and was awarded the Can-Am Wrestling Women's Championship upon her debut in the promotion. That July, she joined Real Action Wrestling under the ring name Sweet Sarah in the Canadian Maritimes as a valet to Johnny Wiseguy. Soon after, she began wrestling in the promotion, teaming with Wiseguy in a series of mixed tag team matches against Duke MacIsaac and his valet Rachel. The promotion soon folded, but Stock signed with Main Stream Wrestling (MSW) in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where she debuted in August 2002 and continued to wrestle as Sweet Sarah. There were few female wrestlers in the area, so she competed in several matches against male wrestlers.

 

The following month, Stock began wrestling for Afa Anoa'i's World Xtreme Wrestling (WXW) in Pennsylvania. She competed against female wrestlers, including Mercedes Martinez and Valentina. In October, she returned to Canada and wrestled in Albertan independent promotions under the ring name Sarah Griffin. She engaged in a feud with Charlotte Webb, and the two faced each other in both Hybrid Wrestling Coalition and Can-Am Wrestling. Griffin was successful in the majority of these matches. From November 2002 to April 2003, she competed in several other Canadian independent promotions, including Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling, Monster Pro Wrestling, and Premier Championship Wrestling. In April, she returned to MSW, where she feuded with male wrestler Kyle Kruze. This feud included matches with special stipulations, including a "Kiss My Ass" match and a Bra and Panties match.

 

In 2003, in an effort to improve her skills in the wrestling ring, Stock moved to Monterrey, Mexico to face the female wrestlers there. At the suggestion of a promoter, Stock began competing while wearing a mask; she also took on a new ring name, Dark Angel, on the advice of Eddie Watts. She initially found it difficult to work with the wrestlers in Mexico, as she did not speak Spanish and could not communicate with them throughout the match. On October 17, she defeated Simply Luscious to win the Lucha Libre Femenil Juvenil Championship.

 

While wrestling in Mexico, Stock continued to compete for various promotions in the United States and Europe. She competed in several matches for World Xtreme Wrestling in November 2003. That month, she also wrestled a match for Ring of Honor. Using the ring name Sweet Sarah, she lost to Allison Danger on November 28, 2003. She also had a match in Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), which at the time was a developmental promotion for World Wrestling Entertainment wrestlers. On December 4, 2003, Stock competed as Sarah Griffin at an OVW show and lost to Passion.

 

On April 2, 2004, Stock lost her mask in a forty-five minute mask vs. mask match against Princesa Sujei at a Lucha Libre Femenil event. Shortly thereafter, she decided to leave Monterrey to move to Mexico City and wrestle for Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA). Although Stock began appearing with AAA under the assumption that she would be wrestling, the company had her start out by holding up signs for the crowd at events. Stock did not wrestle regularly for AAA, and she stopped appearing for the promotion after a few sporadic shows.

 

Upon returning to Mexico, Stock signed with Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), AAA's rival promotion. She began competing regularly for CMLL as Dark Angel in the promotion's newly-rebuilt women's division, while also competing for various independent promotions. On March 25, 2005, she defeated Princesa Sujei to win Federación Internacional de Lucha Libre Women's Championship. On September 9, 2005, Stock was one of two winners, along with Marcela, of a Torneo cibernetico elimination match to determine who would get to battle for the vacant CMLL World Women's Championship. However, on September 16, at CMLL's 72nd Anniversary Show Marcela defeated Stock to win the title.

 

Afterwards, Stock entered a feud with La Amapola, which concluded on April 14, 2006, when Stock put her hair on the line against Amapola's mask. Stock ended up winning the match and forcing Amapola to unmask herself.

 

In September 2006, Stock toured the Canadian Maritimes with Main Stream Wrestling, where she once again wrestled Kyle Kruze, the MSW Atlantic Canadian Champion, and beat him in all three of their matches. Because the title was not on the line, however, she did not win the belt. She also had several high-profile matches against Nattie Neidhart, daughter of professional wrestler Jim Neidhart. Stock and Neidhart split the series, with Stock winning two matches and Neidhart winning three.

 

Returning to CMLL, Stock competed in, and won, a bodybuilding contest between CMLL wrestlers, a contest she would win three times in a row. While working for the promotion, she also appeared in a commercial for PlayStation 3. An agent came to the arena looking for someone to perform a stunt for the commercial, and Stock was given the role. In the commercial, she is seen jumping onto a bed and then falling off.

 

On November 25, 2009, Stock won the CMLL Bodybuilding Championship for the fourth year in a row.

 

On June 1, 2007, Stock, under her real name, made her debut for Shimmer Women Athletes, an all female wrestling promotion based in Chicago, Illinois. She was brought in the promotion for Volume 11 as an "international wildcard competitor" in the tournament to crown the first Shimmer Champion. She started her Shimmer career with two upset victories over established main eventers Cheerleader Melissa and MsChif, but in the end lost a semifinal match against the eventual winner of the tournament, Sara Del Rey, on Volume 12. On October 13, 2007, at the tapings of Volume 15 Stock defeated Daizee Haze to earn a championship match on Volume 16, taped later that same evening. Stock faced Del Rey in a two out of three falls match for Del Rey's title belt but was defeated two falls to one. On April 26, 2008, Stock returned to Shimmer to take part in the tapings of Volumes 17 and 18. After defeating Lacey, Stock was defeated by Cheerleader Melissa in a rematch of their Shimmer Championship tournament match, and hasn't returned to the company since. On February 5, 2010, Shimmer announced that after a two-year absence, Stock would be returning to the company in April for the tapings of Volumes 29 to 32. Stock made her return to Shimmer on April 10 at the tapings of Volume 29, announcing that she would be challenging for the Shimmer Championship on Volume 30, taped later that same day. On Volume 30 MsChif defeated Stock to retain her Championship. The following day on Volume 32, Stock defeated one half of the Shimmer Tag Team Champions, Nicole Matthews, in a singles match.

 

On April 21, 2009, Stock wrestled a dark match for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) where she was defeated by Awesome Kong. She then defeated Taylor Wilde in a dark match on April 22, 2009. On the May 11, 2009, episode of the Spanish-language version of TNA Today Stock made an appearance using the ring name Sarita. On the June 25 episode of TNA Impact!, a vignette aired promoting Sarita's upcoming debut. Stock made her debut as a face on the July 16 episode of Impact!, defeating Alissa Flash. During August and September Sarita teamed with Taylor Wilde in a tournament where the winners would be crowned the inaugural Knockouts Tag Team Champions. After defeating the teams of Alissa Flash and Daffney and Awesome Kong and Raisha Saeed, Sarita and Wilde defeated The Beautiful People of Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky at No Surrender to win the title. On November 15 at Turning Point, Sarita, Wilde and ODB defeated The Beautiful People (Lacey Von Erich, Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky) in a six woman tag team match; as a result, Sarita and Wilde retained the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship and ODB the TNA Women's Knockout Championship. On the December 17 episode of Impact!, Sarita and Wilde were defeated by Awesome Kong and Hamada in non-title three-way match, which also included The Beautiful People. This led to a match on the January 4, 2010, live, three-hour, Monday night episode of Impact!, where Sarita and Wilde lost the Knockouts Tag Team Championship to Awesome Kong and Hamada.

 

Sarita began showing signs of a heel turn on the June 25 episode of Xplosion, when she interfered and helped Wilde defeat Daffney to end the team's long losing streak. The following week, when Wilde confronted her tag team partner and explained that she did not want to win by cheating, the villainous Sarita claimed that she is a winner and, unlike Wilde, does not need her tag team partner's help in her match against Daffney. After Sarita was defeated by Daffney in a singles match, Wilde ran out to the ring and stopped her tag team partner from attacking her opponent. On the July 1 episode of Impact!, Sarita turned heel for the first time in TNA by attacking Taylor Wilde after she had lost her match against TNA Women's Knockout Champion Madison Rayne, proclaiming she was sick of losing matches. Sarita and Wilde faced each other on the following episode of Xplosion, with Sarita picking up the pinfall victory by putting her feet on the ropes. On the July 15 episode of Impact!, Sarita defeated Wilde again, this time in a Street Fight. At the July 26 tapings of Impact!, Stock tore her triceps and was expected to miss two months of in-ring action. She returned at the September 6 tapings of Xplosion, defeating Daffney.

The following month Sarita entered a feud with Velvet Sky, scoring back–to–back pinfall victories over her on the October 28 and the November 4 episodes of Impact!, first in a six knockout tag team match and then in a singles match. Sarita and Wilde had their third one–on–one match at the November 9 tapings of Xplosion, with Sarita once again coming out victorious. Despite wrestling on the November 25 episode of Impact! as a face, when she answered the challenge of TNA Women's Knockout Champion Madison Rayne and then defeated her in a non–title match, Sarita resumed her status as a heel and her feud with Sky on the December 9 episode of Impact! when, despite losing to her and Love in the first round match of a tournament for the Knockouts Tag Team Championship, Sarita claimed that Sky was a loser and would never be able to beat her. On the December 23 episode of Impact! Sky was set to wrestle for the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship, but was forced to miss the match, after being attacked backstage by Sarita. The following week Sarita defeated Sky in a Strap match. In January 2011 Stock signed a two–year contract extension with TNA. On the February 10 episode of Impact!, Sarita's storyline cousin Rosita made her TNA debut in an eight knockout tag team match, where the two of them teamed with Madison Rayne and Tara and defeated Angelina Love, Mickie James, Velvet Sky and Winter. The following week Sarita and Rosita aligned themselves with Hernandez, who had returned from working in Mexico the previous week and was now expressing anti–American views. Later in the evening Sarita and Rosita defeated Angelina Love and Velvet Sky in a tag team match, when Sarita once again pinned Sky. Afterwards, Sky challenged Sarita to a one–on–one match, where she agreed to put her career on the line. On the March 3 episode of Impact! Sky was finally able to defeat Sarita in a singles match, salvaging her career in the process.

 

On March 13 at Victory Road, Sarita and Rosita defeated Angelina Love and Winter to win the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship, with Sarita proclaiming that their victory would start a Mexican takeover of TNA. On the following episode of Impact!, the alliance of Sarita, Rosita and Hernandez was named Mexican America. The three of them were then defeated in a six person street fight by Love, Winter and Matt Morgan. On the March 24 episode of Impact!, Anarquia became the fourth member of the group. In the following weeks Sarita and Rosita successfully defended the Knockouts Tag Team Championship first against The Beautiful People (Angelina Love and Velvet Sky) and then against Madison Rayne and Tara. They made their third successful defense on the June 16 episode of Impact Wrestling, defeating Velvet Sky and Ms. Tessmacher, following outside interference from ODB. In early July Stock was sidelined from in-ring competition after suffering facial paralysis. On July 12 at the tapings of the July 21 episode of Impact Wrestling, Sarita, wearing a protective mask, and Rosita lost the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship to Ms. Tessmacher and Tara. Sarita and Rosita received a rematch for the title on August 7 at Hardcore Justice, but were again defeated by Tessmacher and Tara. Sarita was eventually unmasked on October 16, during the Bound for Glory Preshow by Ink Inc. member Toxxin. The following month at Turning Point, Sarita, Anarquia and Hernandez faced Ink Inc.'s Jesse Neal, Shannon Moore and Toxxin in a six person tag team match for the TNA World Tag Team Championship, which Mexican America managed to retain, when Sarita pinned Toxxin after hitting her with the title belt. On the March 22, 2012, edition of Impact Wrestling, Sarita and Rosita again failed to recapture the Knockouts Tag Team Championship, when they were defeated by Eric Young and ODB. Sarita and Rosita were given another title opportunity on April 15 at Lockdown, but were once again defeated by Eric Young and ODB, this time in a steel cage match. Afterwards, both Sarita and Rosita went inactive from TNA, while Anarquia left the promotion and Hernandez turned face, effectively ending Mexican America. Sarita returned to work a house show main event on June 14 in Belton, Texas, in which she, Rosita, Angelina Love and Winter were defeated by Mickie James, Tara and Velvet Sky, before once again going inactive from TNA. After seven months of inactivity, it was reported on January 9, 2013, that Stock had parted ways with TNA.

 

On August 26, 2015, Stock announced she would be leaving CMLL and Mexico, following September 18. Her final match took place at the 82nd Anniversary Show, where she defeated Princesa Sugehit.

 

After signing with WWE, Dark Angel returned to Stardom for two farewell appearances. In the first on October 4, 2015, she teamed with Mayu Iwatani in a tag team match, where they defeated Chelsea and Kairi Hojo. Dark Angel's final Stardom match took place on October 11, when she unsuccessfully challenged Io Shirai for the Wonder of Stardom Championship.

 

On April 13, 2015, it was reported that Stock was working as a guest trainer for a week at WWE's WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. Stock then made an appearance as part of Tyler Breeze's entrance at the NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable event on May 20. In September 2015, it was reported that Stock had signed with WWE as a developmental trainer, which was confirmed by Stock the following month.
