Fact: Beth Phoenix isn’t really a Diva of Destruction

Oh, she was. Once upon a time.

Yeah, she used to be a top amateur wrestler, and once graced Shimmer (where they have proper female wrestlers, in case you’re interested).

Yeah, she used to compete against men as a matter of course.

Yeah, even in WWE they’ve put her up against men, and she was the second woman ever to take part in the Royal Rumble. And yeah, whatever, she eliminated the Great Khali and his glass knees.

But let’s face it, she and Nattie can pretend all they want that they’re going to crush everyone in their path.

At the end of the day, they’re GIRLS.

(Fast-forward through to 06.44)

And girls are small and fragile and vulnerable and need to be protected in case of accidents that might impact on them, particularly from a fauxhawk-wearing man with a superiority complex and a delusionary man who is scared of both heights and spiders.

There is simply no way that a poor defenceless girl such as Beth Phoenix (who’s 30, 5 foot 7 and has a billed weight of 150lb, and who I’d probably describe as a “woman”, but clearly I am wrong) can be expected to function in a workplace where such dangers lurk.

Beth, you’ve let us all down.

    She’s been derailed a lot as someone special. She was put with Santino… maybe to give her more charisma. She could be giant for wrestling and bring in non wrestling fans to watch the show… whereas Kelly Kelly just scores hits on websites for pictures. No one from the outside world would know she’s a wrestler. They’d just assume she’s a model.

    You’re absolutely right.

      Another sad thing is that Beth won the belt too late… their 4th match and they’ll probably have a 5th in another week. Sigh… It seems to me like 4 divas at a time get a push and then after 6 months 2 of them get shuffled out. Like right now its Beth & Natalya & Kelly & Eve. a few months ago it was Kelly & Eve & Bellas. 6 months before that it was Maryse & Eve & Melina & Jillian? I could probably go back and find examples until the late 90s.
