It looks like a WWE Hall Of Famer could be getting back in the mix for a top storyline on Monday Night Raw in the near future.
PWInsider reported that there’s been talk of Beth Phoenix getting involved to help her husband in the feud with The Miz and Maryse.
It was noted on Raw that Maryse is officially back with the company so it was not a one-off appearance for her. Maryse has said in interviews that she was open to a return and it looks like she will get physical when/if Phoenix makes an appearance. Phoenix currently works full-time as a color commentator on NXT 2.0.
It appears as if the plan is to present The Miz as a serious character during this feud, which is why the segment was laid out in a way to put over Miz’s accomplishments, including his time as a WrestleMania main eventer.
As noted earlier, the belief in WWE is that Edge came up with a lot of his own verbiage, including the line that referenced what was said about Miz last week on AEW Dynamite.
