According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, TNA Knockout Sarita will be appearing for Tajiri’s SMASH promotion on March 4th in Tokyo under her Lucha wrestling alias Dark Angel. As previously announced Sarita’s already booked for STARDOM on the same day, and will be wrestling in their main event match, but could easily appear at two promotions in the one day. This may very well be one of SMASH’s last ever shows as well, as the company announced they would be ceasing operations in March.

Speaking of Sarita, over in Guadalajara at the Arena Coliseo de Guadalajara for CMLL on February 7, she competed as Dark Angel in a tag team Two out of Three Falls match. She, Lady Apache and Murga beat Amapola and “Las Ladies de Polanco” of Princesa Blanca and Princesa Sugei by DQ.

In the same style match on the same day for the same company (except this time in Mexico City at the Arena Mexico) was Dallys la Caribena, Goya Kong and Marcela teaming up to topple La Seductora, Tiffany and Zeuxis two falls to one.
— Dallys, Goya & Marcela def. Seductora, Tiffany & Zeuxis (1:0)
— Seductora, Tiffany & Zeuxis def. Dallys, Goya & Marcela (1:1)
— Dallys, Goya & Marcela def. Seductora, Tiffany & Zeuxis (win)
