• Beth Phoenix Says She Left WWE Because Of WWE’s Mindset About Female Wrestlers

During a recent appearance on Prime Time with Sean Mooney podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix was asked why she left WWE.

Below is what Beth said:

“I was really frustrated with where the women were at from a company standpoint, and the investment that was being made in us.

I felt in my heart I had done my best, and I’d try really hard to change things but, at some point I just got really frustrated. Also, all the travel. I had been away from my family for a long time. We buried both my grandparents, my uncle passed away from cancer; I missed so many milestones in my families lives, that I just thought it was time to come home and be with them for a little bit and take a break from the road.

And in that time, Adam’s [Edge] career as an actor was taking off, and I had just had the baby. I just took that supportive role at home, and I loved it. I loved being a stay-at-home mom. I followed wrestling, but I had just kind of made peace with, like, ‘OK, that was my career. I’m now a mom, and I’m going to find other things to do with my life’.”
