WWE signs woman star they'd have never considered a few years ago

Sara Del Rey, who has been the top female star in Ring of Honor whenever they've used women, has inked a contract with WWE.

Del Rey is a strong worker, but didn't have the model look that WWE and TNA have always favored.  She has been working for 11 years, and has been everywhere in the world during that time period.  Her closest thing to a major spot in ROH was as part of Sweet and Sour Incorporated with manager Larry Sweeney and current WWE wrestlers Claudio Castagnoli (now Antonio Cesaro) and Chris Hero (now Kassius Ohno).
