Phoenix made her WWE debut in 2006, and was quickly a dominant force in the women’s division, aligning with Trish Stratus to take on Mickie James. Although injury sidelined her shortly after her debut, she returned over a year later and quickly captured the WWE Women’s Championship.
“The Glamazon” later teamed up with Santino Marella for a lengthy run, dubbed “Glamarella.” And although the duo provided plenty of laughs, they were also successful in winning titles, with Phoenix getting her second Women’s Title and Marella getting the Intercontinental Title in a Winner-Take-All Tag Match at SummerSlam 2008.
Phoenix managed to win the Women’s Championship and Divas Championship once more each before stepping away from pro-wrestling in 2012. Outside of titles, she was the second woman ever to enter the Royal Rumble match, and eliminated The Great Khali in the process, and in 2010 participated in the first women’s Tables Match at WWE TLC.
Outside of wrestling, she and her husband, WWE Hall of Famer Edge, have two children. Since leaving WWE she has remained out of the spotlight and has focused on her family, rather than continuing to be involved in pro-wrestling.
Congratulations to Beth Phoenix, a true pioneer in women’s wrestling.
