Beth Phoenix has always been a very particular woman in wrestling and different from the others, with a crazy, very imposing physique, which has helped her a lot throughout her career, allowing her to defeat various opponents and more.
In fact, Beth was the second woman, after Chyna, to participate in a men's Royal Rumble, followed by Nia Jax a few years later. She enjoys a lot of respect among male and female colleagues for everything she has done. Now we see the Hall Of Famer parked at the NXT commentators' table, where she lends her voice week by week to narrate the matches and tell us a little about her perception of wrestling today.
But is her career in her ring really over forever?
Beth Phoenix does not rule out a return to the ring
Speaking on Renee Paquette's podcast Oral Sessions, Phoenix said her wrestling career isn't over yet: “I have medical permission to fight.
Once you are a wrestler you are forever. […] I am so happy when I talk about the stars of today that I could face. When I left WWE, I felt really insignificant and like I didn't do anything. As if you haven't moved a straw.
I felt very sad about it, but good to move on. Now I am receiving this wonderful recognition from women today and it makes me feel so good. As for the return to the ring, I say this in every interview, 'never say never.'
If the right opportunity presented itself and I could do business, I wouldn't care. Would I like to have a farewell match and give someone a high five and pass the baton? Hell yes, but there is a limited number of people for whom I could do it."
She then added that she still loves her work on the commentary and she loves to praise the work done by young superstars like Indi Hartwell and Shotzi Blackheart, but that her doors are still open for a return to the ring.
And she also said: "I don't think Beth Phoenix is done tying her boots forever." Edge, who defeated Jey Uso on SmackDown to become the special ringside enforcer for Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan's match, presided over his duties with diligence on Fastlane.
However, things soon became chaotic when Bryan inadvertently knocked out the referee with a running knee, and Edge stepped in to control the match. Jey Uso then entered the ring with a steel chair in hand to help his cousin Reigns, but it only made things worse.
