WWE Names Performance Center Coach Sara Amato As The "Driving Force" Behind The Women's Evolution

WWE thinks very highly of Sara.

The women's evolution in WWE is reaching its next stage tomorrow night inside the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York as WWE presents their first all-women's PPV 'Evolution'. The company's social media team has been sending out a plethora of content on their Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube accounts promoting how far women's wrestling has come in WWE.

One of the recent videos that was posted on the WWE YouTube channel was about Performance Center coach Sara Amato. The title of the video labels Amato as the driving force behind the women's evolution in WWE and fellow trainers such as Terry Taylor, Matt Bloom and former multi-time WWE Women's Champion Alexa Bliss all commented on why Amato deserves to be recognized as one of the staples in the growth of women's wrestling in WWE.

Sara Amato has wrestled all over the globe. She made her in-ring debut in 2001 and retired in 2012 after working in SHIMMER, Ring Of Honor, Jersey All-Pro Wrestling, and CHIKARA among other promotions. In 2012 she was signed to a WWE contract and become the company's first female trainer and has taught the likes of Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair, Ember Moon, Ruby Riott and Becky Lynch. The majority of the top female superstars in the company today have learned under Sara Amato if they went through the NXT system. The embedded video at the top of the article is the full package that WWE put together about why the former SHIMMER Champion is so critical to the women's evolution.


This evolution is not only going on in WWE but women's wrestling is thriving outside of the sports-entertainment company as well. Last weekend Mercedes Martinez and Tessa Blanchard wrestled in the longest women's singles match of all-time. To read more on that, click here.
