Beth Phoenix on not being featured in WWE highlight video of past champs


Some people can see the big picture easier than others. Beth Phoenix is a 4-time WWE women's champion (3 women's and 1 diva's title reign but they count together if Mickie James can add them all up, Beth can too). But when WWE showed a highlight video of past women's champions at least one fan noticed the Glamazon was missing from the package.

Beth Phoenix replied in a fashion that was not only poised but tactful as well. She wanted to remind everyone that it's not about any one person being featured in a video package. The truth is women's wrestling as a whole has come a long way and it's really mind blowing. It is well-deserved but still somewhat surprising.

The WWE Hall Of Famer was also quick to thank WWE for everything they've done for women's wrestling. Without the higher-ups in WWE creating this opportunity for female sports entertainment, the Mae Young Classic would just be another great idea fans are kicking around the message boards.
